Lambskin Munitions Leather Waistcoat

Our leather waistcoat is lined with moleskin for all-day comfort.


Inspired by a style first worn and popularized by Royal Air Force ground crews who needed a comfortable, rugged outer garment they could move in as they rearmed the Spitfires and Hurricanes that won the Battle of Britain. Longer than most waistcoats, it won't ride up when you reach, and it's made of rugged lambskin leather with a smooth grain that is soft and supple. Lined with our 100% soft cotton moleskin for all-day comfort. Four exterior pockets. Two-way front zip. In cognac. 100% lambskin leather. Professionally clean.
Sizes S(34-36), M(38-40), L(42-44), XL(46-48), XXL(50-52). About 29" long in size large.

    The one you must have! - 9/24/2014

    I've looked all over for a vest just like this--soft and supple, medium weight, plenty of pockets, rugged zipper and snaps, perfect fit. The only place available was a local leather shop where it would have cost twice as much to have one made. Don't hesitate--get it now.

    Waiting on this one to go on sale a long time.The leather is butter soft and has that new leather smell . The fit allows for a heavy sweater to be worn underneath. Well worth the wait

    The Best Vest - 9/11/2014
    By: from Kansas City, MO

    This is by far the best vest for the money. I have shopped around at different leather shops and dealers, including several custom makers. This vest is substantial and butter soft. I have a hard time from keeping it away from my wife.

    Great vest - 9/2/2014
    By: from upstate NY

    I have been watching this vest for 2 years...I couldn't bring myself to spend that much, but when it went on sale I ordered it. First one was XL...way too big, sent it back the same day for a L, that one fit better but was a bit small around the middle...I'll just have to lose 10 lbs! Maybe there should have been a size Large plus...anyway, the vest is awesome. I can't wait to wear it this winter over sweaters, t-necks etc...I can't stand being over-bundled with heavy coats. The leather is butter smooth and very stylish. Great customer service.

    High Quality - 6/19/2014
    By: from Lake Forest, IL

    This is a super high quality vest. It is more like a leather jacket without the sleeves from a weight and drape perspective. On the roomy side, so it works well with a sweater underneath. Leather is butter smooth and the color is a rich brown.

    Munitions vest - 6/10/2014

    I have wanted this vest since the first time I saw it. When it went on sale, I decided to treat myself for Father's Day. Ordered an XL, but it was too big, so I returned it & am waiting for my Large to arrive. Unfortunately it won't be cool enough to wear it here for several months...

    quality vest - 6/4/2014

    I had been wanting a leather vest for sometime and the lambskin munitions vest seem to meet all the qualities I was looking for. I spent some time "chatting" with Orvis representatives reviewing size and fit information with them before ordering. They were extremely helpful as always. The vest arrived and the color, fit and quality was as described. The vest is a nice addition for cool outdoor weather conditions. I am very happy that I ordered it and am looking forward to having it for many years to come.
