The BlackRock Vest

Winter is just around the corner and with it will come a new BRG signature piece. Our spring launch of the 2013 vest is currently sold out. We hope to offer another special piece later this winter or early next year. The last two years we've featured the Black Rock Vest from the Super Ultralight Hadron Vest to the beautiful and rugged HadronS model. We've still got a small batch of specialty materials left and are working over new and exciting ideas on what to make with it.

Designed by: Jessie Wolff

At one full ounce lighter than most UL vests it will pack anywhere and with more fill there is simply no better base layer than the Black Rock Vest. A mid-weight style with an ultralight weight boasting over 2 inches of loft this ultralight vest packs the heat. The Black Rock Vest is a simple elegant design with only the elements you need to look good and keep warm.

The second piece in our "S-Series" gear the vest is made with a 7DS ripstop shell. This waterproof material and will shed the rain and keep moisture out while retaining loft when worn as an outer layer or used in wet conditions. The vest is not waterproof but the material itself does an amazing job compared to a DWR coated nylon in addition to adding more warmth for less weight. The vests includes pockets finished with top quality stretch binding and the zipper is the lightest toughest YKK coil zipper available.

List Price: $240
Availability: Sold Out

Update: February 6th

The vest is no longer stocked. We are working on a new special release for 2014.

Size large is our most common size fitting most people. For a quick measurement check your waist and chest. A chest measurement around 40" to 45" and a waist around 34-38" should fit nicely.

We don't currently offer a women's or unisex cut. The vests is a form fitting athletic cut and is designed to be worn over your base layers such as a Merino Wool long sleeve yet under your shell or other outer layers. This years run is more durable and weather resistant and can be worn as an outer layer then work in under your jacket or shell when conditions get bad.
