Light Functional Vest - Highly recommend

The vest works perfectly for field trials with our spaniels. Its construction allows easy adjustments - nearly limitless adjustments! The vest has ample pocket space for birds, dummies, and other training gear. And provides a solid platform for water or other equipment pockets. A truly outstanding engineered piece of gear.

Jared Moss
Extremely happy with the functionality!

Love the thought that went into the functionality of this vest! Keeping the weight of the gear and birds on the hips allowing me to carry more game and go further on my hunts! Along with the deep shell pockets this vest proved to be a huge upgrade from several of my other upland vests!

This vest is much like the high end western hunting backpacks… that allow us to get big game out of the backcountry! Great comfort!

Quality is top shelf! Made in America! Love supporting good people and great businesses!

I have personally recommended this vest to several close friends who also have had similar results!

Great work Final Rise!

Comfortable for all day

Definitely the best bang for your buck on this vest. Off the bat your get the main features as the best which is all I am really looking for. Very easy to use, functional, the design is well thought out. The surprising factor to me was caring all my birds and my kids birds in this vest and was able to go all day without feeling extra weight and didn’t have any discomfort in the shoulders or rubbing on the waist. Makes me wonder if I can pack an elk quarter out of this. I went with the orange one, kind a wish I went Ranger but I’m happy either way. Very well put together

Simple and Lightweight.....Finalrise Legacy

I was brand new to the Upland world in 2020. I had bought a couple of vests, thinking its just a vest, it can't matter much. Little did I know how the factors of weight, strain on the shoulders, sweaty back, birds falling out of pouch...etc could hamper a fun hunt. A good friend of mine suggested I look at the Finalrise vests. Me, budget guy , back then it was a huge commitment, but I look back at the last couple years and I am so happy that I went with the Legacy vest. I have gone through some rough falls, thorny woods, hot hikes, and the vest has held up very well. Still going strong, I like that its supper lightweight and gives me easy access to the main contents; shells and bird poutch.

You won't be disappointed!

I got one of the Legacy vests this year for squirrel hunting and I love it! I have a lot of lower back pain and the vest cured 95 percent of the pain! I thought about getting another just in case they stop making them! If you're on the fence about getting one you won't be disappointed!

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.
