Fine piece of kit. Well thought out and functional. Thank you for the merino wool collar. (Exactly where most would have scrimped on acrylic.) I can’t take it off. Now I’ve a closet full of other vests I no longer care to wear.

Double black selvedge denim

Woven on upgraded vintage looms. The ‘self edged’ stripe can be seen in the hanging loop inside the neck as well as on the top edge of one of the inside pockets.

What is Selvedge? Tap here to jump to the answer.

Insulated with Yorkshire wool

We’ve always focussed on working locally and using the best quality natural materials. Now we’re bringing much more of this ethos to market with our pioneering use of wool as insulation in our upgraded Quilted Vest.

Above: Photos of our first rolls of HD Wool insulation being made into quilting in Bolton, Lancashire, at Caledonian Quilting.

Chunky and British made double zip.

Opening up the lower zip stops the vest riding up when you’re sitting down or driving. Also features a denim zip guard that sits behind the zip.

Merino wool mix ribbed collar. Dropped hem for draught exclusion.

Two large quilted hand warmer pockets as well as two inside chest pockets that will hold a large smart phone.


All our wool can be traced back to the farm it came from and is Woolkeepers® certified. Farmers are paid properly and in turn ensure that regenerative land management is practiced through the Land to Market™ standard.

“Regenerative agriculture has a critical role to play in impacting the climate crisis. We measure outcomes & impact on the environment such as soil health, sequestered carbon, water & biodiversity.”

“We’re using exclusively British wool from HD Wool in our Quilted Vest. They are based locally to us in the historic Salts Mill in Saltaire near Bradford.”

Our wool insulation is fully machine washable.

Because our insulation is 75% wool combined with 25% PLA it’s fine to go in the machine. PLA is compostable, biocompatible, and renewable thermoplastic polyester which is derived from corn starch.

Why wool?

Comfortable, trapping air to generate excellent warmth
Naturally temperature-regulating and breathable to maintain wearer comfort
Odour-inhibiting and anti-bacterial, meaning reduced washing
Natural and renewable helping you create planet positive outwear
Guaranteed 3rd party verified traceable non-mulesed wool
Naturally elastic, compressible wool crimped fibres help to improve thermal performance
Excellent moisture management. It can absorb up to 30% of its own weight without feeling wet!

Who layers wins

Wear it over or under your jacket – like our M16 Selvedge Jacket – with just a t-shirt or a big jumper.

Wear it to keep cosy inside. Wear it on its own to show off your muscles. No, definitely don’t do the last one.

What is selvedge?

Selvedge is old-style denim, woven on narrow looms and typically has a more characterful appearance and a higher level of quality than mass-produced denim.

This denim is also made by the world’s most eco denim mill…

Candiani are Italian denim masters. The Quilted Vest is made from Candiani selvedge denim and has the highest environmental credentials.

Environmental sustainability is at the forefront of all stages of production of selvedge denim at Candiani. Using BCI cotton, a micro-plastics free dye process, solar power and water recycling to name some of the process used.


Wash cool at 30. Drip dry is best. SLOW spin if you must. Air dry on a hanger. Don’t tumble dry.

    Warm, beautifully made, worn it nearly non-stop, top quality. It all sounds so familiar with the other reviews – Hebtroco must be getting it right – good one lads.

    This vest is my favourite HebTroCo item so far. Great quality, fit and comfort, and nice and warm. If they ever make a bomber jacket along the same lines I’d be first in the queue! Another excellent garment, and well worth the money.

    Cracking vest, lovely fit and the usual Hebtroco quality. Just need the weather to cool down so I can wear it down the pub.

    Missed these first time.
    So glad I pulled trigger this this.
    Quality looks and feel.
    Could well be my new fave slice of hebtro
    Pity it’s due to be 40degrees today.

    Whilst the nation prepares for an imminent heatwave, I was quick off the mark to buy one of these. Yup, I’m of the generation that would call it a “Body Warmer” and bought one on account of me and the husband heading off to Scotland for a week at the end of the month and thinking a few more layering options would be a sensible idea.

    As always, another beautifully made product, top quality. My spiritually Scandinavian soul is hoping for cooler weather soon so I can wear it 24/7. So far; I’ve tried it on and only waltzed around the house with it on top of a football shirt. Looks great as well underneath a rain coat so it’s exactly what I wanted. Thanks for putting a hanging loop in!
