Default Red Cross POW Vest

Hi fellas,
Found this vest in a trunk of WWII gear I picked up today. I'm thinking its part of a WWII Red Cross Clothing Parcel but I haven't been able to confirm it.
Anyone familiar with these types of clothing?

Canadain 1930~50s civy hunting/sports waistcoat/vest

used under a jacket to give a little warmth.

Would be perfectly fine in a RC parcle and most likely would not of been confiscated as civy cloths as it look military.

I have seen similar in old Etons mail otder catalogs I will see if I can find an online version
