The difference between the Y-Back and H-Back vest is the torso adjustment on the back of the vest:

  • – Y-Back is by velcro
    – H-Back is by buckle and the straps come straight over shoulder

Overview: The San Carlos vests are great for half day hunts, so comfortable you hardly know you’re wearing a vest. Both the H-Back and Y-Back are great for open or tight, brushy country.

Common Uses: Less cargo space, easy to throw on for a short round.
