We think of the Better Sweater Vest as a standing invitation to strike out for open country. Soft, durable and highly insulating, it has a plush moisture-wicking fleece interior that feels broken in and a resilient sweater-knit face. Made of quick-drying, 100% polyester, it’s dyed with a low-impact process that significantly reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy and water compared to conventional dyeing methods. A stand-up collar warms your neck, and a vertical chest pocket holds the day’s essentials. With offset shoulder seams for pack-wearing comfort and micropolyester jersey trim at the armholes, hem and back of neck. Fair Trade Certified for sewing, which means the people who made it earned a premium for their labor.
