GEAR: Filson Lightweight Work Vest

Lightweight Work Vest


"A machine-washable Antique Tin Cloth vest with abrasion- and wind-resistant properties. It includes heritage sidewinder pockets, front-access pockets and a shooting patch design on the shoulder."

This would make a great Fall/Winter shop vest. I never like working in long sleeves but could always use an extra layer in the colder months. It's got a nice assortment of front and side loading pockets for shop EDC. The shooters patch on the shoulder also means you can shoot clays at a moments notice if need be. A must for Chicago. It's going on the list. 

  • Seattle Fit
  • 1 flap pocket, 1 flap patch pocket, 2 front-access pockets, 2 sidewinder pockets
  • 3 button closure with corozo buttons
  • Double front loader pockets, One double chest pocket with flap closure
  • 10-oz. Antique Tin Cloth
  • Shooting patch design on shoulder
  • Dry finish Antique Tin Cloth is extremely abrasion resistant


  1. Nice vest, but for something my mother could sew up in an evening 185 dollars seems ridiculously steep.

    1. If your mother can exactly replicate this vest in an evening (which Wikipedia defines as 3 hours in it's longest form) from scratch I'll build you a custom motorcycle for free.

  2. If you knew what you were looking at, you'd know that your mom can't make these, and if she could, she'd be pumping them out and getting every bit of $185 a piece. This ain't no "throw some shit through the ol' singer" job.

    1. If his mum knew how to market to hipsters she probably would be pumping these out.
