This one's for the good ol' boys.
The Carhartt Rugged Vest is tough enough to handle everything from a day of fixing fences to a night out on the town. Its sandstone duck fabric boasts extreme breathability as well as hard-wearing durability. Sherpa fleece lining provides a touch of warmth and keeps things soft on the inside.

I bought this vest after I made the stupid mistake of wearing an expensive Pertex and Primaloft jacket next to a fire pit. I wore it tonight and noticed several embers hit it and roll right off. I have a 44" chest and normally wear XL t-shirts, but I ordered the large fits perfectly. So, if you like to sit close to the fire but don't want to melt your expensive gear, go with this vest and a flannel under a Carhartt jacket, and save the technical stuff for backpacking and climbing.
