I am not associated with this company, but wanted to share with this group a find.
Was flying to Jamaica in Feb and wanted a vest to carry passport etc.
It is perfect for traveling, but has also now become a permanent part of riding gear.
These folks seem to have the level of quality that may meet your expectations
I am 5'10 about 185lb got the large. Fits over my Olympia mesh jacket and cuts the wind well.
