Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between the Side Hustle WhatVest and the Full Send WhatVest?

There are a few differences between the two WhatVest models. The Side Hustle is a slimmer volume design with nine pockets total and approx. 15L of storage depending on size. The Full Send WhatVest has eleven pockets total with more volume in the rear pockets for approx. 20L of storage capacity depending on size. The backpack compartment of the Full Send has two pockets located higher up— a fleece lined goggle pocket and an interior mesh pocket that allow you to distribute your gear more evenly. Both vests are hydration pack compatible, carry skis/snowboard, have radio clip webbing on the shoulders and have helmet carry loops.

What size WhatVest should I order?

Check out our detailed sizing chart to figure out what size you should order.

How does the hydration system work?

You can thread a hydration hose through the shoulders of any WhatVest.  OR, you can carry a collapsible water bottle in any of the pockets.

Can I wash my WhatVest?

Yes, we recommend a cold wash only when needed and hang dry. The more you wash it the more you will lose the water repellant features of the fabric.

Can I iron on patches to my vest?

NO, it won't work and you risk burning and melting the fabric. Your WhatVest will look like shit and you might cry. Best bet for adding a patch--You could use 6000 Epoxy to glue or try and had sew it.

Does the WhatVest have an airbag system?

No. 

Is the WhatVest waterproof?

All WhatVest products are water resistant with varying levels of DWR water repellant coating on the fabric. This is not the same as being fully waterproof but our garments work pretty damn good in most winter zones.

I'm a patroller and want to be able to wear my WhatVest on days off, do you have a velcro ski patrol cross option available?

YES, we do.  Here is the link to order "Velcro Ski Patrol Crosses" in addition to purchasing a Ski Patrol WhatVest.
