The prototype of this vest is taken from the 1930s Hunting Vest. It is made of heavyweight 13oz canvas. It has a hidden mezzanine which actually is a half-arc pocket called “Game Pocket” for storing prey. It also can be used as a storage bag for daily wear which is easy to pick items, and not easy to be lost. There are two pockets on the back for easy access to items. A strap is installed above the chest to fix the fishing rod and hook. Vests and coats designed with this kind of pockets started to appear in the 1930s. In addition to being used by hunters and fishers, it was once a classic middle-class outdoor costume.
This khaki vest is an upgrade version, this version adopts 13 oz canvas instead of 16.5 oz canvas. Because the texture of 16.5 oz canvas is too hard, it is difficult to straighten the stitches when sewing. So the vest is easy to wrinkle, and the crease is obvious after washing. In addition, this version uses a fabric woven by plied yarn with a finer yarn count. The texture is softer, and the stitches look smoother.

I love this vest. I get compliments on it every time I wear it, too. I'm 6' 182 lbs and an XL is the perfect size. Get one. You won't regret it.
Hello dear Bronson team,
now I take the time to thank you for your wonderful clothes. The rider jacket, vest and pants fit great and are very well made. I like to wear all 3 pieces of clothing and will order from you again because you have very good quality for a very good price. However, I attached larger buttons to the vest because I think they are better in relation to the rest of the vest (I hope you don't get mad at me for that). In addition, everything runs smoothly with you with ordering and sending the packages. I am very happy with you and I greet you warmly from Potsdam Germany.

Amazing fabric and cut! I’ve got a bunch of waist coats but this one feels special right away. Looks and feels great and has some super practicality built in too for travel and long days out in the city.
This is wonderful! I love a garment with so many pockets. It goes with everything else I wear. I’m considering buying it in khaki as well! Get one!
