    Grateful for suggestions as to a hunting/upland/turkey vest suited to doing 'double duty' as a vest for summer rifle hunting/stalking.

    (ie looking for a vest to carry binos, LRF, gralloch kit, small flask, other odds and sods, etc in summer conditions.

    Pella Birdn'lite strap vest looks as though it may be suitable.

    Any recommendations?

    I use a promaster vest that I used to use as my conceled weapon vest. Got to showing a little wear, so I got a new 511 tactical vest for daily wear, and relegated the Promaster to LR hunting and shooting duty. These "photographer" style vests, especially the ones designed for gun duty, have enough pockets and stuff for everything you could possibly want to carry. They do cost more than a lot of the bird hunting vests, but they are top quality, and wear very well.
