Lambskin Munitions Leather Vest

Our leather vest 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 vests, 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 zipper. In cognac. Professionally clean. Imported.
Sizes S(34-36), M(38-40), L(42-44), XL(46-48), XXL(50-52). About 29" long in size large.

    Amazing vest - 12/8/2014
    By: from Brule River, Wisconsin

    I recently bought this vest for my husband as a birthday gift. He could not have been more surprised, or more happy! Orvis has been a good friend to us for decades. As usual, the workmanship was excellent with great attention to detail, the leather soft and supple, and the sizing predictably reliable. Thank you Orvis!

    nice fit I usually need a tall size but this is nice and long covering my back well. Goes great with a fisherman's sweater on cool days.

    Have been considering the purchase of this vest for a number of years. Decided to treat myself with an early Christmas present. Regular shipping brought this product to me in three days. I am very pleased with the vest. It fits well, looks great and received four compliments the first time wore it. Bravo to Orvis for this great product!

    A quality vest.... - 11/3/2014

    Very nice garment and the British influence is evident...very generous cut and excellent quality. Sill pondering whether the 3X might be a little too big for me? Perhaps could have gone with then 2X? Perhaps will be calling you to compare dimensions...

    Tried to purchase this vest last year but sold out too quickly. The leather is beautiful, very supple, and the style is authentic. Great gift for my husband who is a hunter but will wear this casually. Worth the wait
