Snowbee's new practical vest is made from a traditional tight-weave Bush Poplin material, originally developed for safari suits for its rugged characteristics, coupled with its cool comfort. New material, however, has a unique twist. By adding 20% polyester fibres to the cotton it provides additional durability and faster drying properties.
We then added a brushed peach-skin outer finish for a soft feel and treated it with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) outer wash treatment, to repel water if caught out in the rain. Light shoulder quilting provides extra support when fully loaded, whilst the lightly padded neck collar provides additional comfort.
Two shoulder tab and stud epaulettes allow bag straps to be locked in place to prevent them sliding off your shoulder. A lightweight inner mesh lining allows the vest to breathe to keep you cool. The front of the vest features 4 main bellows design pockets with brass Snowbee stud flap closures. The bottom two of these have double inner and outer pockets for additional storage.
There are two horizontal zipped pockets plus two vertical chest pockets for easy access to mobile phones, etc. On the sides are two hand-warmer pockets for comfort. Light shoulder quilting provides extra support when fully loaded whilst the lightly padded neck collar provides additional comfort. Inside the vest are four more zipped pockets to store valuables such as wallets, and one of these is a deep pocket for boarding cards, passports etc. There is even a pen pocket for filling out your landing card! Front, two way zip closure with an additional front stud tab, plus two side tab and stud adjusters, for a trim fit at the waist. The rear of the vest features two vents, opening onto a mesh lining to provide ventilation, plus a hanging loop and our trademark leather Snowbee label. Finished in an attractive taupe colour, this is the ultimate Travel Vest and sure to become your must-have travel companion.
