Penfield Outback Vest Jackets

Now celebrating 35 years of "Life in the Open", Penfield's committment to the best of fashion, function, practicality and durability is at the forefront for this Winter.

To commemorate the milestone in Penfield's celebrated heritage, they have re-issued a classic from the archives: the original Outback. This strictly-limited anniversary edition is made out of 100% calf leather outer and padded with 210g of premium 80/20 goose down.


Classic details such as front snap closure, shoulder yoke, internal plaid yoke and handwarmer pockets keep the vest classic – just the way it was loved.

First released in the late 1970's, the Outback Vest has become a staple style in Penfield Winter collections and its continued popularity justifies its inclusion year-after-year. The Outback Vest exemplifies the ethos of what it is to be Penfield - a classic look, unsurpassed garment quality, and eminent style. The Outback embodies the spirit of the Penfield brand and illustrates clearly what Penfield stand for.


The Outback is one of the most recognizable styles available in Penfield's rich history and has been celebrated globally through the collaborative efforts that have been undertaken. Eminent names such as Colette, Stüssy and Edifice have all recognized the versatility of the Outback as a durable yet fashionable piece.

There is no doubt that the Outback Vest will see out the next 35 years and beyond in the same understated yet classic swagger that has seen it conquer since 1975. In a world where trends fall by the wayside Penfield choose to celebrate style; it never goes away and it is always relevant.

The Penfield Outback vest is now available from Stuarts London in a range of colours for Autumn/Winter 2010.
