Details

For the dry Australian outback and the extreme weather of New Zealand’s South Island, rugged work gear like this oilskin canvas vest is essential. Its wax-impregnated material resists rain through years of hard wear. Seven outer pockets, including two hand-warmer pockets, keep all of your essentials comfortably at hand. One inner pocket is perfect for wallet, passport, or MP3 player. Snaps at the waistband and a zip closure with snap-over storm flap keep the wind out. Flannel lined with a nubuck leather-lined collar.

Use a soft brush to remove any dirt. The jacket can be spot-cleaned with a damp sponge and cool water, but using detergent or dry cleaning will destroy the waterproof treatment.

"NOVICA is tops again!"

Once again, the catalog has introduced me to a top-notch product. Oilskin is heavy and smells of oil and wax when new, so be aware. (The smell is very temporary and inoffensive.) This is a sign that it is correctly made. And you can't put it in the washing machine, although cleaning is actually easy, and instructions are included. Attention to detail, heavy duty components (snaps and zipper) and versatile pockets are exactly as described. If this sounds like something you want...it probably is (and it's well worth it). You'll probably like the collar and liner, too. I am very satisfied.

"A good product"

Just got back from a ride near San Diego across the desert to Big Bend National Park, Texas. The weather was moderate, but got a little hot the last couple of days. I wore it often under my leather jacket and then as the day warmed I shed the jacket. It is now my favorite vest. cb

"This vest was well made , my husband loved the 7 pockets."

My husband generally wears an X-Large in his vest which fits comfortably and has room for a heavy shirt to be worn under it. This vests was too small in the shoulders and the chest. I was pleased that it didn't take long for the return to be credited to our account.

"Great vest for work or play."

Gave this to my husband for a gift and he loves it. He uses it for work (tractor-trailer driver) and also when running errands on his days off. It is almost like he lives in it. It looks fantastic on him too.

"Outstanding Quality & Workmanship"

I received this vest as a Christmas gift. It's been very comfortable; great fit and well made. The unique properties of oilskin are interesting as well. I expect to get many years of service from it.

"meets expectation"

As far as the wax cotton, this is the real deal.The zipper is not leather jacket quality but better then expected plus it has a built-in pull tab and is a two-way zipper not mentioned in the catalog.The collar is a soft leather on the neck side only.The fit (med.)was fine for me. This is not a vest to be worn with just a shirt under. It is made to be worn over a light jacket or heavy wool sweater so the fit must be a little large.The lenth is long enough to conceal a hip mounted fire arm for those of you that have a C.C.P. It came with two spare snaps ( a nice touch ).The inside lining is flannel with polyester fill for a little warmth.The inside pocket is zippered and of a good size. Also on the inside is an embossed leather-like sewn in" garment care" label.My only "con" is that I wish at least one of the top three pockets on the front were deeper.

"fits small * body length quite short"

have outback full length coat and car coat product quality has never been an issue but this vest was a little disappointing. From description my husband would have been a medium but I ordered large. Large was a just fit on a 40 chest and the body length is far too short. Needs to have more backside coverage!
