If I'm cold I don't want a vest. And don't give me any of that shit about "if you keep your core warm.." If I keep my core warm I might was well keep my arms warm too. I have never been in a circumstance in which my core was cold but my arms were not. And I don't foresee finding myself in that situation, because I'm pretty sure it doesn't exist. Like seriously, when would I wear this
If I could be wearing this:
The only explanation that I can think of for vests is the starving middle class going to REI and thinking, I would have gotten the coat but Bush tanked the economy so I think I'll save 50 bucks and skip the arms.
Hopefully it doesn't come down to relying on Mitten's tax cuts to stimulate the economy so people will start wearing coats again.
