Proudly American Since 1982
825 Stockman Vest
Product Review (submitted on February 7, 2013):
I wear this vest 3 seasons here in the high desert of Oregon. The dense wool is warm and wind-resistant; pockets are perfect: functional and secure. The snaps always work easily even with gloves.
The fit is superb: I'll admit that I'm a woman, but bought this vest because of the pockets and the fit. I'm only 5'4" and 110 lbs, and the XS fits great with room to move my arms freely while the vest stays put.
I've had one for nearly 10 years, wore out the lining in the pockets, but Schaefer sewed them up for me. And I bought another one; I do that on rare occasion when I find something that works so well that I never want to be without one.
I wear it riding, skiing, every day. I often get strangers asking about the vest, who makes it. Even fashion designers in the big city. It's a classic; couldn't be better.
