Combining the aesthetic of wool with the easy care of polyester fleece, this vest is made with knitted cross-dye fabric dyed with a low-impact process that significantly reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy and water compared to conventional dyeing methods. Fair Trade Certified™ sewing.
With the aesthetic of wool and the attitude of a range rider, this easy-care polyester fleece vest looks as good with pearls as it does with cowboy boots—and even better with both. With a sweater-knit face and a fleece interior, the moisture-wicking fabric is spun from heathered yarns dyed with a low-impact process that significantly reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy and water compared to conventional dyeing methods. Smooth polyester jersey trims the wind flap, armholes, hem and zippered handwarmer pockets. Feminine seaming offers a contoured fit. Deep interior drop-in pockets stash cell phone and cash. Hip length. Fair Trade Certified™ sewing.
