Our traditional outdoor work vest with all the benefits of a work jacket, except without those pesky sleeves.


You don’t need sleeves to get the same benefits of a jacket. Our Bodark Vest gives you the same blend of comfort and durability as our Bodark Jacket, except with 100 percent less arm coverage. This heavyweight vest is made with 12.5 oz. pre-washed, ringspun cotton canvas and 300g fleece lining to give your torso the protection it needs. Even without the sleeves, our durable work vest still has four separate zip pockets for storage, plus expandable side zips for added comfort and mobility. You have the right to bare arms, and the Bodark Vest is the best way to do it.


• 12.5 oz. Pre-washed, Ringspun Cotton Canvas
• 300g Fleece Lining
• Beefy Front YKK® Zipper
• Zippered Handwarmer Pockets
• Zippered Interior and Exterior Chest Pockets
• Expandable Side Zips
• Contrast Stitching (Black & Chestnut Only)

I bought a black Bodark Vest last year and I absolutely love it. Time for another in the green color. I am typically a 2X . But, I certainly need the 3X because I think they run small. Very well designed and built for a lifetime. They are better than anything I have ever seen or owned. Top shelf. Thanks for attention to detail and making a superior product. It keeps me warm in the Washington State weather.

Agree with the other reviewer about how this vest is cut properly and not the loose-fit I got from a well-known workwear company. The brown color is a nice, deep color. More warmth than I expected. I could probably ditch my other options now.

There are many things to like about this vest, but the biggest one for me is sizing. I'm 6'1", 180 and this vest (L) was the best fit out there without the extra room around the midsection that other brands seem to include. Other nice features: -Tough outside has stood up to my debris clearing and firewood cutting activities -Vertical pockets don't collect much debris even without using the built-in zippers -Large zipper pulls are easy to use with gloves -Warm but not too warm. This is not a "puffy" vest, but adds a nice amount of core warmth when working.

Best all around vest ever. The fabric, zippers and cut are extraordinary. Keeps your core warm and the pockets are just right. The small internal and external upper pockets are handy for keeping digital equipment warm and functional in cold temperatures. The hand warmers pockets have been great when standing around on a chilly day. The neck fleece really adds warmth when the wind blows and you zip up tight. My only wish is the exterior chest pocket was on the right side so it does not double up the thickness when carrying gear in both the inside and external chest pocket.
