    Im on the fence about which vest to order.. Both seem similar, and currently similar in price.

    You need to go and model them both with a handcrafted pick axe first

    RRL vest any day

    the Ironheart is very boxy looking in person.....and RRL has much better details

    see the fit pics on their blog to see what I mean: http://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=3396.0

    In addition, the current generation of Wabash doesn't fade very easily, so it will look stiff and new for years before you get any real indigo development (I'm talking from experience with my pants made of the same fabric and washed a lot more than I would ever wear/ wash a vest)

    I love Ironheart pants and have several pairs..... but when it comes to jackets and vests, the fit is a bit off, imho

    you may disagree, of course

    oh wow, thank you so much NorCal_1 . I was leaning towards the RRL , as lately I've been really impressed with what they're doing. I think that will be my purchase :)
