“Yvon Chouinard got his start as a climber in 1953 as a 14-year-old member of the Southern California Falconry Club, which trained hawks and falcons for hunting.” Chouinard was able to create a trend as he gained popularity in mountaineering.

The vest comes in three different colors and you can get it at Patagonia.
