I wouldn't overspend or get a vest that is too use-specific as a new hunter. As a matter of fact, a used vest would be a good choice, the reason being that after you get a couple of turkey seasons under your belt you'll have a much better idea of what you want in a vest and what gear you want to carry.
Here are some of my preferences based on my experiences and hunting style. I hate back pads. They cause your back to sweat and unecessary overheating. I have ripped them out of every vest I have owned. No buckles in the shoulder area. When you shoot, the gunstock will drive the buckle into your shoulder which is also unecessary.
I don't like an attached seat pad that folds up. I frequently dump my vest to go after birds and wear an inflatable cushion that straps around my waist. Shoulder straps must be padded and the vest must have a bloodproof gamebag for packing your bird out.
Lastly, I don't like the current fad of use specifc pockets all over the front, ie; box call pocket, slate call pockets etc. I prefer cargo style zippered areas with interior pockets. They offer more protection from the elements and accidents. With calls all over the front of your vest, you can't lie prone or belly crawl and If you trip and fall you'll likely break slate, your strikers or your box call.
As you can see, there's much more that goes into vest selection for me than what looks cool or what the latest craze is. I think you'll find that your idea of a good vest will evolve like mine did.
