SCOTTeVEST Featherweight Vest


I only have one phone, but I regularly see people with two phones – a work phone and a personal phone. Some people even add a tablet with a stylus. Then a wallet, house/car keys, a water bottle and a few snacks. These items are either bursting out of their pockets or tucked under their arm or in their waist band. I usually use a combination of cargo pants and a computer bag/backpack. But there are times when a bag seems like too much space and a cargo pant is too little. Is there something in between a sweaty back from the computer bag and overloaded pants pulling off my waist?

There is ! In late April I received a Featherweight Vest from SCOTTeVEST to trial during a sequence of business travel and as the Wisconsin winter slowly turned into Spring. I took the vest with me on trips to Minneapolis, Madison, San Francisco and Los Angeles. And for walks around my neighborhood. I wore it through airports, on the plane, at my desk and as I walk-commuted from my San Francisco hotel to the corporate home office.

I was really pleased with the fit (size large for me), the general lightness of the vest, the options for storing all my gadgets and the great construction. For a mass transit commuter or urban hiker/walker the SCOTTeVEST Featherweight Vest seems like an ideal product.

During my testing process, though I was really pleased with the vest, I experienced a bit of self discovery. I have long used cargo/tactical pants, hoodie sweatshirts and a computer backpack when I am on the go and have developed a combo of quirky habits and comfort for those systems.

With encouragement from SCOTTeVEST I gave the vest to a San Francisco-based co-worker who has the urban lifestyle and commute better suited for this product.
