  • The vest’s middle layer acts like an airbag in a fire
  • Eleven pockets built to hold your life

Built from a Swiss supermaterial originally created for the elite military, our 100 Year Vest repels fire, wind, rain and time. Flames can’t spread on the vest or even burn a hole through it, water rolls off it, wind doesn’t go through it, and almost nothing can tear it, yet it has the breathability and stretch to comfortably get you through any jungle, desert, city or airport on Earth.

With 2 giant zipped pockets running down the sides of the vest from your shoulders to your waist, another 9 pockets layered over and around them, and 3 heavy-duty military belt tapes designed for carabiners, the vest carries as much gear as your backpack. So whether you’re escaping the world or catching your next flight, this is the only utility vest you’ll ever need.

Fireproofing the vest makes it more breathable

While it’s completely counter intuitive, having a protective layer in the middle of the fabric makes the vest more breathable. Because it’s created from a fireproof coating rather than material, it acts like a gap or fire break between the inner and outer layers of fabric, and it’s this invisible gap that lets air pass through the vest and makes it more breathable.

Size + Fit

The 100 Year Vest is designed with a regular fit. If you’re on the borderline between two chest sizes, we recommend going for the smaller size.
