    Rain Defender®, Durable water repellent—water beads up and rolls off.

    Rain Defender® durable water repellent garments are just as functional and comfortable while fishing, hunting, working, or standing on the sidelines at a football game in a sudden November rain. Water will bead up and roll off your sweatshirt, jacket, overalls, pants, and more, so a little rain won’t stop you from finishing the job without changing your gear.

When are you getting more orange vests in for sale?
Road Warrior on Aug 24, 2018
Are they true to size?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These vest are true to size. The collar is supposed to fit snug around the neck, to keep the air out. But if you are planning on using it as an outer layering piece , you may consider a size larger. I prefer for it to fit snug around my neck. Thankyou

How many pockets on the inside Pockets large enough for a 38 pistol?
A shopper on Nov 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There are two pockets on the inside. The zippered one on the left inside chest would fit a snub nose or a .380, but it would conceal very poorly. I put tools in the pockets during tasks while working, but the weight pulls down the best conspicuously.

A shopper on Nov 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. It is extremely lightweight and very comfortable. I wish they made it in more colors, I'd buy several of them.
