Description

Mule Skinner VestMule Skinner Vest

Mule Skinner Vest by the Last Best West – Wagons pulled by mules and Ox Carts were employed all over the vast west, to haul every manner of commercial product. And during the buffalo hunting years they hauled a lot of buffalo hides, meat and bones.

Muleskinners were tasked with the difficult duty of keeping their string of mules in line.  Whether in a mining capacity, or during the war, these talented mule herders could keep their animals in line like no other by expertly manipulating a bullwhip.

A bullwhip is a tool for working with livestock in open country and is still used today. A typical bullwhip has a single tail and is made of braided leather.  It can be “cracked” in such a way that part of the whip moves fast enough to exceed the speed of sound and creates a small sonic boom.

Many of the West’s favourite sons would do a stint driving freight at some time or another. Wyatt Earp spent some time as a mule Skinner when he was first out West and finding his way.

This vest is made from heavy Pigskin Leather and is available in Men’s sizes XXS to 5XL.  See sizing chart in the picture gallery.
