Default Anyone familar with the Filson 1433 foul weather vest?

Looks real nice. Anyone use or own one? Its kind of pricy at over $160 but it looks very well made.

I have one of the oil / wax finish strap vests. I have been giving it a beating for 10 years the vest will last you and get better with age. Take a look at the strap vest with pack while you're on their web site.

Does look like a good vest, Filsom does make a excellent product. I had one of their wool jackets for many years that i wore around the barn.

I second Hardyreels.....you can't wear them out.....any company that says" Might as well have the best " must be on to something....especially since the 1800's.....$160 may seem like alot but it might be the last vest you buy unless you are 10......
