DETAILS

WEAR IT AS A SECONDARY LAYER, INDOORS AND OUT – This is a super versatile, transition garment that works equally well indoor as it does outdoors…sitting at a desk or steering your garvey through the marsh.

FITS SNUG TO THE TORSO…AS A VEST SHOULD – Vests must be fitted just so…otherwise they’ll bunch up around the neck, back and around the armhole. This one gets it just right. However...if you want it to fit like a jacket, size up! 

DURABLE & DEPENDABLE – DryHandle®, the 100% cotton shell fabric is weatherproof, breathable and develops character as it wears in.  

Functional – All aspects of this build work together…from the stand-up collar to the front packet “Doghouse” snap closure configuration, to the numerous pockets, and the adjustable tabs at the hips. 

LIMITED EDITION – Our 25th Anniversary Outlaw Gunner Vest is a limited production run, each is marked with a unique serial number identifier. 

This Vest gets it pedigree from the Outlaw Gunner Jacket. It is the sistership of the time-honored and essential component of warmth on the bay…

Gunner vest

Very nice. I like the fabric, reminds me of my old yellow one. May be a little snug but I guess vests are supposed to be snug.

The Outlaw Gunner Vest Story

For generations, wildfowling was a way of life along the Eastern Seaboard and market gunning had been a necessary and respected profession. With the enactment of the Migratory Bird Act of 1918, the variant interests of the market gunner and the Federal Game Warden unfolded as a real-life cat-and-mouse game. The struggle became legendary and nowhere was it more vividly played out than along the tidewaters and estuaries of the Chesapeake Bay. Part-time friends and part-time foes, one thing the gunner and the warden shared equally was the bitter gnaw of winter’s salty northwest blows.

When it comes to staying warm, modern-day outfitters have nothing on these men. Dressing in layers was just common sense and garments like the Outlaw Gunner Jacket were a key component of every bayman’s garb. Worn as an intermediate layer under oiled cotton smocks and bib pants, early versions were often fashioned from discarded quilts or horse blankets.


Our 25th Anniversary Outlaw Gunner Vest is a limited production run; each vest is marked with a unique serial number identifier. Made with our exclusive, 6oz. DryHandle®, 100% cotton weatherproof fabric. This vest is the sistership of the time-honored and essential component of warmth on the bay…the Outlaw Gunner Jacket. A tight 2x2 quilt pattern over the DryHandle® helps build air pockets in the poly-fill insulation and keeps them in place. The vest is fully lined with a mid-weight fleece. Outfitted with two large hand-warmer pockets, a front chest pocket, two zippered utility pockets inside. The body is fitted, as a vest should be, so that it can be comfortably layered under other jackets and coats or worn on its own as the secondary outer layer.

Spot clean by hand using mild soap if necessary. However, DryHandle® fabric is stubbornly stain-resistant, so a once-over with a damp sponge is usually all you will need.

People Usually Ask

1. Where are your products made?

All of our shirts, pants, outerwear, sweater, belts and moccasins are made in Portugal, mostly in the same shops we've been working with for over 25 years. Our hand-sewn leather goods, hats and a few other items are made in America. 

2. How would you describe the fit of your clothes?

Our fit is what we call contemporary, meaning they're not overly baggy or boxy, but have ample room and freedom of movement. Also, our outerwear is uninsulated, or very lightly insulated. It's cut with enough room to allow you to layer underneath, with a sweater, a vest or even a light down-filled jacket. For us, layering is always the way to go!

3. Will your shirts and pants shrink after washing?

Simple answer is no. All of our shirts and pants are pre-shrunk. At most you will experience a 2% shrink factor after washing and drying. 

4. What is DryHandle®?

Dryhandle® is a 100% cotton, weatherproof fabric that we develop in 1995. Starting with 100% long-staple Egyptian cotton the thread is very tightly woven resulting in a fabric so dense that it's thornproof and, even at this stage, surpasses the U.S. government test for rainwear. The fabric is then impregnated through the proprietary DryHandle® process which irreversibly transforms the cotton fibers themselves to make them inherently water-resistant and stain-resistant. Unlike oiled or waxed cotton fabrics, DryHandle® is extremely lightweight, has no odor, won't stain other clothing or upholstery and resists stains from hard use and long wear. Despite being water-resistant, the weave contains millions of microscopic pores that vent moisture, making DryHandle® garments exceptionally breathable and comfortable to wear. 

5. How long does delivery usually take?

Orders received by 2pm PST are usually shipped the same day. In most cases we ship via USPS Priority Package, and orders to the East Coast typically arrive in 4 days or less. West of The Mississippi orders arrive in 2-3 days. 

6. How do i reach the founder of the company?

Easy! You can email him (that would be me, Engle) at engle@atlanticrancher.com or you can call me at 206-919-0943. I am around most of the time, but i miss you, I'll get back to you as soon as I can. 

7. If an item is out of stock will you let me when it's available again?

We maintain an active "wait list." So when you send a message asking to be notified when the item, color and size becomes available, we actually do something worthwhile with your request. We catalog your request and email you once the item becomes available again. 

8. Who writes your copy and are the stories true?

The answer to the first part of this question is: me, Engle Saez, founder of the company. For part #2...there's an old adage that applies here: "you can't make this shit up." And I will just say that the stories I tell are as true as I can make them and as accurate as my memory allows. That's a true story...

9: Where did the name Atlantic Rancher come from?

The origins of our company's name is a long story, one will share in blog post at some point. But for now, all should know that we are forever grateful to Susan Turner for her original and very creative idea.

10: How do I return or exchange a item?
