    Oilskin vest

    Am in the market for one, was going to poi I Up a Swandri version but while I was trying to decide between a wool or a cotton lining I found the Outback deer hunter online, which seems nicer, thought I would ask here before I spend my hard earned $, what do people recommend?

    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    If you spend $125k at John deere dealer they will charge you an extra $20 for some screws on the invoice, but they will give you a nice oilskin vest...

    Would have to be a fantastic vest if you are going to be punished with a John Deere.

    I got an oilskin vest just a cheapie at a Fieldays but my recommendation is to get the short sleeve type rather than the vest - when your elbow is out the window of the ute ya get a cold draught down ya back with the sleeveless style
    I like the "fat zip" type as they seem to last a bit longer
