What’s a SCOTTeVEST?
A SCOTTeVEST is an alternative to carrying all of your gear in a bag, purse or backpack.
Simply put, you carry what you need in your pockets. The vest is actually a weight management system engineered to balance the weight of the items you carry, in a way that makes carrying them in your pockets easier and more comfortable than carrying them in a bag. (I’m paraphrasing the product brochure)
What is TEC?
Bottom line, this is a vest, but the longer I wore it, I began to think of it as more of a high-quality bag. I filled my pockets, yet didn’t feel bulky or awkward. Yes, it took me a while adjusting to being this self-contained, but I quickly got used to not having a purse on my shoulder. Additionally, the security element of having everything in zipped pockets is a huge plus.
Price is in the $135 range for the vest, but again, a good travel bag or backpack costs that much too. Considering all I put in the vest as well as the quality of materials, I think it’s reasonably priced. It comes with a pocket map to show the storage options and where to put items such as your phone, passport, license, camera, sunglasses etc. They also make other TEC items for women and men.
Overall, I give the SCOTTeVEST Travel Vest for Women a thumbs up. I’m having fun with my new acquisition.
