We were over the moon when Scottevest contacted us to review their jackets. Their jackets are ones we have really wanted for a long time and I wanted to see if it matched up to our expectations of being able to travel and leave your day pack behind. Take a read of what I thought and don’t forget that you can enter to WIN a men’s and women’s jacket for yourself. All you need to do is comment on this article and ‘like’ our review on Facebook.
The History Of Scottevest
Scottevest has been around for 10 years and have a reputation for being a quality jacket that has more than enough pockets to hide all your belongings. Scott and Laura own and run the company and have launched a range of products to help travellers store all their belongings in one convenient jacket.
Their product range has grown substantially over the years and now they are launching some really trendy everyday urban wear jackets. I am very excited to see where the next 10 years takes them.
The Products Available
Scottevest has a wide range of products now available from expedition jackets, urban jackets and a huge range of pants and T-shirts too. Who would have thought you could have hidden pockets in a T-shirt!? Well, Laura and the designers have come up with unique pocket inclusions in all their products and it just amazed me how they continue to keep the style of these garments, which is at the forefront of their designs. There are too many products to list, so for a comprehensive look at all their products you can visit their website.
This is the first jacket that I have ever worn that houses 26 pocket! Yep, you heard right… 26! They are located throughout the garment and are placed in the most convenient areas for easy access. There are also some sneaky ‘pockets within pockets’ for extra safety for your passport and money if needed. These jackets hold belongings such as iPod, iPhone, iPad, sunglasses, camera, passport, wallet, water bottle, keys…The list just goes on and on. The only thing you can’t carry is the kitchen sink!
We were lucky enough to be sent one mens Revolution Plus Jacket and Elise received the women’s Lola Jacket. Each of the jackets we noticed were made extremely well. You can see from all stitching, to the design of the jacket, everything has been thought of. What can I say…this jacket is very hard to fault and if you know us from our previous reviews we tell you the truth if we don’t like a product. The jacket has a snug tailored fit that hugs the body and you would never know that the jackets housed so many pockets internally and externally. I loaded up my jacket with all the items that I would if I were travelling overseas or taking a flight and you could barely tell that I had anything under my jacket.
This is great for the security aspect of your belongings and it also allows you to leave the day pack at home if you can carry everything on your body. The only thing to criticise would be that the women’s arm length on the Lola jacket were a little long, now this may only be due to Elise’s incredibly short T-Rex arms!
I will be giving my jacket a huge test drive when I go to America. I will attempt to have limited carry on and only will be carrying my dslr camera in a bag and the rest of my belongings will be in my jacket. I am looking forward to the road test out and about in the States! I will let you all know how it goes in the next couple of months.
