    Excellent construction and look throughout. The Munitions Vest was exactly what I wanted. Loaded with pockets and a heavy duty zipper. Great snap buttons wherever needed. Beautiful lambskin ! Fit perfectly !

    My favourite garment! - 3/9/2014
    By: from Dyfed, Wales.

    After several years, my first munitions leather vest is showing such a patina of age that I'm told I should not wear it in polite company - so I'm ordering a replacement for best. I like the original none the less and intend to keep it for outdoor wear! I was in fact the third in our village to acquire one of these. The original was bought be a friend to replace a near identical garment he was issued with as an officer in the Royal Artillery. The original RAF versions as seen in "Battle of Britain" movie seem to have a less appealing orange hue. The moleskin lining is lovely and warm, not shared by your jacket version. The only change I'd request - a second, possibly zipped, inside pocket.

    Favorite vest - 3/1/2014

    We collect vests, it seems, and this is my husband's very favorite. Good looking, substantial, soft leather and cotton lining. Convenient pockets. Just an overall great vest worth the price.

    This is a quality item, all it lacks is a made in the USA label. I'd pay more for that label.

    He is pleased! - 1/20/2014

    I bought the munitions vest for my husband for Christmas. Once we got him the right size, he loved it!! He is usually a large but took a medium in this. The large felt heavy and bulky to him. If you are on the large end of a large you might still need a large but on the light end of large, go medium.

    Great gift for my man! - 1/16/2014

    Exactly what I was looking for to replace a worn out leather vest that had been my husband'a favorite . The quality of this vest was better with tougher leather that should last a long time. Fit is great and he is so handsome in it! Sometimes it is hard to buy out of a catalog, but this product exceeded my expectations.

    My husband has eyed this for two years and now he has it. Well made, soft leather, nice quality! Just as I would expect from Orvis.

    Lovely, but pockets make it not very usefull - 12/26/2013
    By: from PA

    The best is beautiful, and very high quality. Unfortunately it's named a munitions vest, leading one to believe the front pockets are wide w bought to hold shells and retrieve them easily. They are not. In fact, it is hard to get anything into them at all, and nearly impossible to get anything out while wearing gloves. This is a fashion item only, despite the name. My husband will be returning this. Sadly, since he has been searching for just such a vest, but with shell pockets, for quite some time.
