Multi-pocket garment line expanded.
For several years now, I’ve been traveling internationally without a purse, but rather I wear an early model of the multi-pocket SCOTTeVest. It holds a lot and holds it all securely. It came with an illustration showing all the pockets and what each is designed for, but I have adapted it to my own needs: at the very least, passport, wallet, room or apartment key, street map, glasses for sun or reading, transit pass. Sometimes I stick in a lightweight GoreTex shell for rainy or windy weather, or sunscreen on a bright day.
Now, the Idaho-based travel company has a couple of new products, and in watching the promotional video, I discovered that the line has grown to include jackets and cargo pants too. I was intrigued by the new Off The Grid (OTG) Jackets for men and women. These jackets feature 29 engineered pockets that include two patented front Rapid Access Panels, which reveal large compartments designed to hold a laptop (except Women’s XS and S) without showing bumps or bulges. Since my XS and even S days are behind me, I’m especially intrigued.
