Oftentimes, less is more. The Final Rise Legacy System was created for the upland hunter that knows exactly what they need to carry afield and nothing more. This simplified vest checks all the boxes for the essentials at a jaw dropping 2.25 lbs. The Legacy is perfect for hunts that don’t require carrying as much water or where you’re frequently moving spots, swapping dogs or hunting smaller parcels that allow you to be back to the truck when needed.

  • Ultralight 2.25 lbs
  • Unmatched lumbar support for all day comfort
  • Non-padded and functional shoulder harness to ensure a clean gun mount

Awesome products that actually work as designed.

Matt, I spoke on the phone with you several years ago, when you answered the phone to answer my questions. Finally met you Pheasant Fest last year. I have had 6 back and spine surgeries. I have a spinal cord stimulator and a Morphine/Fentanyl pump. Your vest are the most comfortable that I have ever worn. I can actually walk around and HUNT. I wanted to thank you for giving me a product that still allows me to do what I love. God bless you brother.

Such a pleasure to have connected with you, Denny! No greater compliments than your kind review. Hope your health continues to improve and you're gearing up to enjoy another safe, successful and very memorable fall. Keep inspiring us brother!


This is my second vest I’ve bought. This one is a gift for my son in law. If your debating on getting one you will not be disappointed. This vest is another level!

Thanks so much, George! An incredible gift and hope he enjoys it very much. Shoot straight and stay safe this fall. Wishing you all the best.

New Legacy

Just received my new legacy vest. Very impressed with the quality in materials and components. The way the game bag stays open is an unbelievable upgrade to any vest I’ve had before. Plenty of room for everything I’ll need for a day in the grouse woods or chasing pheasants.

Thanks so much for the kind words, Brian! Nice to not have to call your buddy over to load a bird, right? :)

Hope the bird numbers are good out your way and wishing you a very safe and successful fall. Send some pictures in when you can. Thanks again!

Best vest out there!

I have 2 Summit vest (1 orange & 1 brown ) I bought the legacy vest for my dad since he isn't running a dog & doesn't need the extra water bottles. These vests are great , lightweight & cool and can be used from early sharptail & chickens all the way to late season pheasants. The shell pockets are perfect and even zip up on the Summit vests. I have been hunting with these vest for 3 years and everything has held up with no issues. I have been bird hunting for over 30 years & have multiple $250.00 plus vests & these are the ones I like to use and recommend to my friends. Here is a picture on my son & dog with some grouse in South Dakota.

Can't thank you enough for all the continued support, Tim! It's great folks like yourself that make this work so rewarding. Hope your dad is loving his vest and hope to see a pic or two of y'all in the field this fall. Stay safe and shoot straight brother.

Redefining Comfort and Function in the Uplands

The Final Rise Legacy System is the latest and most innovative Strap Vest design on the market. With a desire to deliver quality and life long lasting upland gear, FINAL RISE set out to raise the bar and create a premium upland strap vest utilizing the latest advances in materials, components and design.

What separates the FINAL RISE System from other Strap Vests on the Market?

WEIGHT - 2.5 lbs lighter than other Strap Vests

The old saying goes, ounces equal pounds and pounds equal pain. The older I get, the more that saying rings true! It doesn’t matter if you’re hunting chukar, prairie chickens or thick grouse cover, weight matters. At just over 2 lbs, empty, our vest, as a complete system, is on average 2-3 lbs lighter than anything else available without jeopardizing the quality and lifetime value of the product. What does 2 lbs really mean though? It means you can carry almost a full extra liter of water BEFORE your vest weighs as much as another when it’s empty. 

The FINAL RISE Legacy delivers a true, minimalist platform, without jeopardizing  comfort or function in the field.


There is no such thing as ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to any hunting gear.. We have our style, our way and once we find something we like, and works, it’s hard to switch it up. Trust us, we get it. We’re just like you. 

Because we understand the need to create a system that functions perfectly for your needs, the Legacy vest is the perfect platform that includes all the essential parts you’ll need.

WAIST BELT - True Weight Bearing for Comfort & Balance

The foundation of any strap vest should be the waist belt. That is afterall the theory behind a strap vest, as the shoulder straps are the most minimal part of the system and that the waist belt should hold the weight, balance the bag front to back and deliver comfort. Without a proper fitting waist belt that is truly weight bearing, the design is mute. Our contoured hip hugging waist belt provides unmatched comfort all while holding  your system rock steady. Combined with our Lumbar pad, a Final Rise Exclusive design, you won't find a better fitting or more comfortable vest.

SHOULDER STRAPS - Streamline and Unobstructive

If there’s one thing you shoulder straps should NEVER do, it’s impede proper gun mount. Mount the gun wrong and it’s an ice cube's chance in hell you’ll kock a few birds down out of the covey you just hiked 5 miles to find. The FINAL RISE shoulder straps are minimal yet functional asset to the vest and when properly adjusted, leave your shoulder clear for an easy mount. 

Additionally, each shoulder strap has 2 rows of horizontal webbing that ride just above the semi-tacky material that sits on the front of the vest, just above the sternum strap. Perfect for hanging handhelds and other accessories that you like to keep on your chest and at the ready at all times. 

SHELL POCKETS - Simple and Functional

If there’s one part of your vest that gets used, it’s the shell pockets. In and out, in and out, shoot, reload.. Repeat 10000000’s of times. 

The Legacy shell pockets are the classic, tried and true, flap top pocket. The deep pockets allow minimal weight within them to act as a counter balance to any birds or heavier essentials that make it way into your bag. Super easy to access, super easy to use.

Our pockets are both large enough for gloved hands. Shell Pockets are also a great storage compartment when balancing the vest and fits a full sized camera when a reasonably sized lens.

BUILT IN DOG CARRIER - A lifeline when emergency strikes

The reality is that the gear we use and carry is mostly for our dogs. Water, first aid kits, multi-tools and more.. all to ensure we're prepared for when 'crap' happens.

During the design and testing phases, it was critical for us to construct the vest so that it could carry a heavy load, in case a dog became injured. By designing the way our game bag closed and connected to the shoulder harness, we created an innovative way to open the bag, place the torso/mid section of the dog between the panels and then simply close the bag, connect to the harness and hustle back to the truck.

Not having to leave your gun or gear afield in a mad dash and securely carrying the dog to receive aid can make a less than ideal day afield, better.
