    Soft and comfortable - 8/4/2014

    This vest is unbelieveably soft and comfortable! Perfect for Southern living. No sleeves, so it isn't hot.

    Excellent Customer Service - 7/8/2014

    This is a beautiful vest. The leather is fantastic and the fit was perfect. It should last a long time even with heavy outdoor use. The first one that arrived had some bad snaps. But I let them know, sent it back, and they overnighted me a new one. No hassle. The staff was very concerned that I had a problem, and really wanted to make it right.

    Love the vest - 6/16/2014
    By: from Fort Worth, Tx

    I always wanted a vest like this and to know that maybe my father-in-law might have worn one similar to this when he was stationed in England during WWII is the best present I could have. Thanks for having it available.

    Very nice vest! - 6/10/2014
    By: from Midway, KY

    The description and sizing of the vest were accurate. I wear a large and it fit me perfectly. The leather is very supple and after wearing a few times, it softens up nicely. I was a little surprised by the weight and didn't realize it was a heavy piece. However, once it is on, the weight isn't noticeable. A great vest and great looking as well.

    A bit uptight. - 4/15/2014

    This is an extremely well made item. My disappointment is purely one of aesthetics. In the photos it has a very casual air about it. As soon as I opened the box and saw the glossy leather finish I had the feeling it was not going to work out for me. For some reason this vest in person, feels "stiff". I was very sorry to send it back.

    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.
