Hello there! Long time no talk. The wait is officially over- I found the perfect jacket. If you’re in the market for a relatively affordable, lightweight, jacket/vest/fanny pack super accessory- keep reading.
I’d like to introduce you to the jacket that will be accompanying me on all my travels this summer. It’s lightweight, water and stain resistant, and the sleeves zip off which turns it into a vest- making it the perfect accessory for your adventures in the warmer months. Did I mention it has 25 pockets, strategically placed through out the jacket to keep the weight of your items evenly distributed over your body? I didn’t mention that part yet? Shucks- keep reading and I’ll tell ya more!
How rude of me! I told you all her best qualities and didn’t even tell you her name. You can call her Sterling and she is created by the fantastic folks over at SCOTTeVEST. This jacket is available in a variety of colors, is machine washable, and also available in men’s sizes.
Now back to the pockets. I’m not going to go through what all 25 are intended for but I’ll share with you a few of my favorites. It has specific pockets to house your water bottle, sunglasses, pens and lip balms. It also has a pocket that fits different tablet devices- this spot could be used for a small book or notebook as well.
Impressed? I haven’t even told you the best part yet! There’s also a RFID blocking pocket to store your credit/debit cards, drivers license, and passport. What is a RFID you ask? Well, it’s a radio frequency identification device used by the lovely individuals that try to steal your identity/credit card information. You may be more familiar of hearing about these being placed in card slots at gas stations. With this jacket and it’s handy pockets, you won’t have to worry about it though!
SCOTTeVEST has a great website that provides even more details. If you’re on the hunt for a great, versatile jacket, look no further! I’m really excited to have this jacket on my journey. I think it will help me keep my items safe and readily available. Also, it looks like they’re currently having a sale! Happy shopping and safe travels!
