Not your average cool weather vest! The HOOVER VEST is, like the HOOVER JACKET, what we consider to be the ultimate in cold weather carry.
Constructed from Kakadu's legendary 5 oz quilted MicroWax oilcloth, it provides warmth while still being lightweight, durable and water resistant. Trimmed with cotton jacquard, it features a brass zip front closure, large hand warmer pockets, a zippered chest pocket and adjustable waist tabs. On the inside however, is where the Hoover really moves to the head of the pack. Underneath the warm brushed cotton plaid lining and two internal security pockets is the built-in Gunn Worn concealed carry internal system (CCIS), ready for left or right hand draw. Any imprint is obscured by the quilting.

Products made using our MicroWax cloth are as tough as they come - 100% waterproof, windproof & breathable. Since the blend is not water soluble, any incidence of water to touch it simply runs straight off. The use of a super tight weave of cotton canvas ensures that it is completely windproof. The breathability arises from the fabric's crystalline structure which varies and aligns with an increase of body heat, thereby allowing sweat in the form of water vapour to escape.
To clean your MicroWax oilcloth garment, simply wipe or hose down with tepid water, then hang to dry in a cool, well ventilated area out of direct sunlight.
Do NOT use hot water, machine wash or dry clean. Don't use any soap or detergents and don't force dry in front of any heat source.
Oilcloth garments should be reproofed every 2-3 years depending on wear, using Kakadu's MicroWax Reproofing Cream.
