This one's for the good ol' boys.
If you prefer your chew cut long, your beers cheap, and your whiskey straight, then the Carhartt Rugged Vest is for you. The 12-ounce cotton sandstone duck is tough enough to handle everything from a day of fixing fences to a night at the honky tonk. Sherpa fleece lining provides a touch of warmth and keeps things soft on the inside; after all, you're only human.

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.
