It may not seem likely, but some men's vests have played integral parts in history. Back in April 1970, a homemade off-white vest worn by Gene Kranz, flight director of the nearly ill-fated Apollo 13 mission, became a symbol of hope to the crews in space and on the ground. While everyone knows bulletproof vests can prevent tragedy, you may not know that the very first bulletproof vest was invented in the late 1800s in Asia by layering silk vests. And, of course, where would we be without Marty McFly's red down vest in Back to the Future? At Hatcountry, you won't find any bulletproof vests, but you will find functional cotton, oilskin, and canvas vests that will stand up to wear and tear.
All of our men's vests are durable, with a variety of styles offering pockets galore, waterproofing, fashionable cuts, and more. Go ahead and browse Hatcountry's men's vests. You never know, your new vest may make the history books, too.
