Workhorse Vest

Size Guide



Part of the rugged Workhorse series of Kakadu garments, you can't beat the Workhorse Vest for an early morning wind-stopper or mid-layer, and since sawdust brushes off with ease, it's a favorite in the woodshop. Built from 12oz traditional oilskin and lined it with 100% cotton, it features a drop tail back with adjustable tabs a stand-up collar that forms part of the snap-down front storm placket and covers the brass zip vest closure. We kept it clean by adding 2 welted handwarmer pockets and included security pockets on the inside.

The Workhorse Vest Features:

  • Hand warmer welt pockets.
  • Cotton lining with Australia map print.
  • Zip + snap placket closure•
  • Built from heavy-duty water-repellent & abrasion-resistant Microwax canvas.

Sizes: XS - 4XL

Indian zippers

I love the jacket but the security zipper has busted already and is poorly fitted and of inferior quality the front metal zipper is ok and just needed a rub with a candle to have it moving smoothly ! I love indian clothes and have just returned from a visit. i have bought pants over there many times but on every pair the zippers break and are of poor quality. I always have them refitted with dependable strong metal zips. I have to take the jacket to be refitted with such as well. I recommend you send the tailors strong metal zippers to ensure long lasting usage in line with the top quality of the jacket ! Thankyou

Workhorse vest

I bought this vest to replace a similar type I had last used 20 years ago, different brand. After googling and finding this company and the vest, I thought I would give it a go. It has been everything I hoped it would be. It is what the company describes it as. The measurements were correct and I have been using it for a month now. I use it for horse riding and it keeps me warm but not too warm whilst riding. The zips, pockets and fit are excellent. It is already like my comfy old one used to be. Very happy to have found this company that supplies vests like this at a reasonable price.
