This vintage nylon vest was made in Canada by Sportchief quality outerwear. It has a pile lining and a quilted nylon green nylon shell. There is one pocket, and it closes with four snaps. The cut and style is reminiscent of the iconic Brown’s Beach jacket vest. There are period repairs to the shoulder seam, to some of the quilting, and to a tear on the front. The stitching on the quilting is coming undone on many parts of the jacket and there is staining. This saw a lot of wear during its lifetime.
Chest: 21-1/2″ (doubled = 43″ )
Blaze orange canvas, reversible to hunting plaid. Clix zips on the game pouch and sleeve pocket. Leather reinforcement on the pockets. Made by Weather Chief. Supposedly water proof/resistant. I put that to the test by wearing it in light rain and found it to be patently false. Canadian Wildlife Federation patch, and some nice fade to the canvas.
