Our cotton twill vest from Schott is inspired by the Air Force’s C1 survival vest, first issued in 1944. It contained essential gear, like flares and fishing kits, for pilots who had to ditch behind enemy lines. Unlike the bulky backpack survival kits it replaced, the C1 allowed items to be evenly distributed throughout pockets for maximum comfort and maneuverability—assets that are just as important for today’s traveler. The original C1 was one-size-fits-all, but ours is adjustable thanks to two back straps. Nine exterior pockets and two interior passport pockets.

Men’s sizes S/M (22" wide at chest), L/XL (26" wide at chest).

100% cotton twill body; synthetic mesh back for ventilation. Imported.

Machine wash.

Best Uses

    Nice looking vest with lots of pockets. It's so hard to find outerwear without velcro closures (which I absolutely hate), that I don't mind the slight inconvenience of buttons. This one only uses buttons and snaps. Tall people take note: The L/XL size is closer to L, and like most clothes made in China, this is cut too short.This was my first purchase from the NG store, but given that this is is another typical Chinese import, it feels more like a [@] shopping experience, and for that reason I am checking the not recommended button.National Geographic, I expected much better from you.
