Daryl Dixon Vest
Daryl Dixon Vest
We get our first glimpse of what is to become the iconic Daryl Dixon Vest in Season 2 Episode 4 of The Walking Dead, entitled ‘Cherokee Rose.’ Daryl’s angel wings leather vest has quickly become as much of an iconic part of Daryl Dixon’s image as his crossbow, his motorbike and even his home-made Poncho!
When it comes to constructing a Daryl Dixon Cosplay Costume there are a number of alternative vests available. Whilst the simplest solution is to find a readymade biker vest with the wings already emblazoned on the back, this is not always the most economical solution nor is it necessarily the most authentic.
An important consideration to bear in mind when choosing a readymade Daryl Dixon Vest is to make sure that the wings on the back of the vest have been positioned high enough on the shoulders to match the vest worn by Daryl. We at ZombiePit have scoured the internet to bring you our choices for the best Daryl Dixon vests available; including one readymade vest with the wings already attached and two that you can fashion yourself with a pair of easy iron-on Daryl Biker Wings that are simple to attach. So without further ado, here are our top picks on the best Daryl Dixon vests!

Daryl Dixon Vest Verdict
This is a bargain plain leather vest with front pockets and laced sides.
