Scottevest

Multi-Pocket Tech Apparel

InVestment Piece

In Sun Valley, Idaho, the Makers at Scottevest, Laura and Scott Jordan, make tech enabled, pocket filled clothing for recreationists and travelers. Their recently launched Q.U.E.S.T. Vest has, not 10, not 20, but 42 hidden pockets, elevating this sporty travelwear to a whole new level. Fishing, camping, hiking or sojourning, it safely stores your essentials and keeps them close at hand.

This vest has a spot for virtually everything, including an eyeglass sleeve, lined with soft chamois, and a clear storage slot for visual and manual phone access. There are pockets within pockets, even one with RFID blackout lining to protect travel docs and credit cards from identity theft. With compartments for up to two iPads, a large exterior back panel (with the capacity of a small backpack), and a patented TEC (TM) conduit system for charging electronics, you could literally take a trip with no bags or luggage.

Top it all off with a stowable hood and a pickpocket-proof guarantee and this is an inVestment worth every penny.

    Hey Grommet friends! I'm Scott Jordan, CEO and Founder of SCOTTEVEST. In 2000, I created SCOTTEVEST to solve a common and growing problem: I love gadgets, but there was no easy way to carry, organize, access and protect them while I traveled. (A man-purse was not an option!) As more people joined the "pocket revolution" I was starting, it became clear that the mission of SCOTTEVEST extended far beyond just vests, and far beyond just travel. My wife Laura and I designed the Q.U.E.S.T. Vest using years of customer input and technical engineering experience to create the most functional and fashionable vest ever! Our customer service "pocket experts" and I are standing by to answer all your pocket questions and help keep you organized, safe from pickpockets and always connected to your tech!

    Hi Scott - do you have any concerns about the amount of radiation that the body would be exposed to with multiple devices coming so close to it? The vest looks great but I am leery of having so much radiation surrounding multiple parts of my body all at once?

    I agree. Maybe the material used (or something similar) to protect against RFs could line the entire vest.

    @Jill

    The RFID blocking pocket is to protect against hackers/scanners not against radiation.

    @ Irfan There have been multiple studies about cell phones/electronics that have concluded there is no harmful exposure to radiation using common consumer devices.

    @Scott

    As there are multiple studies about cell phones/electronics that have concluded there is harmful exposure to EMFs and RFs. I'm not trying to be contrary--I love the idea of this vest. Please consider in the next versions adding some kind of protective layer between the body side and the phone pocket and other electronic pockets if at all possible.

    Keep Your Phone Out of Your Pocket:

    A study published last year in the Journal of Craniofacial Surgery linked cell phone radiation to decreased bone density in the pelvis, and a 2008 study conducted by the Cleveland Clinic found that it lowers fertility in men.

    From wikihow: "Cell phones communicate using signals in the microwave spectrum. The invisible stream of RF (radio frequency) signals penetrate our bodies when the device is held close, and as well as the long-term potential for cancer, there is also the potential to impact cognitive memory functions and to cause disorientation and dizziness."

    Thank you for that response-very informative. Here is the link that I was referring to in the previous comment.

    From the World Health Organization's page on Electromagnetic fields and public health:http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs193/en/

    "A large number of studies have been performed over the last two decades to assess whether mobile phones pose a potential health risk. To date, no adverse health effects have been established as being caused by mobile phone use."

    @Scott There are MANY misleading "facts" which are touted by groups or organizations that have things to sell....the WHO page is right on, and is a clear statement of what has NOT been found in electromagnetic radiation. Sell your vests with clear consciences, and ignore wikihow.

    Hi,

    How well (or should I say badly) does it hold heat? I'm often outdoors in hot climates and gave up in traditional vests because they were too hot.

  • Scott

    @Sheryll

    The fabric is a cotton/nylon blend, it won't breathe like a performance fabric. It is not designed to be worn in humid and tropical climates but it will work great in temperatures up to 70 degrees.

    @Scott - 70 degrees is winter in Texas. Any chance this will be made with performance fabric in the future?

    We love our Scottevests! I bought 3 for the men in our family and one for myself. My husband ordered the tropical weight jacket with the zip-off sleeves and it's become his favorite. We were so pleased with the design and quality that friends ordered them and then they had family/friends order! This sounds like another great product!

    Any chance you have color choices, instead of black? I thought I saw a white option in the pictures or video?

  • Scott

    3/18/2014 1:31 PM

    @Gretchen

    Unfortunately, the only color available for women is Black. The men's is available in Beige or Black. If you really wanted Beige I would recommend going down a size and ordering the men's vest.

    @Scott Thanks for the recommendation. Is there a major difference in the fit for the men's vest?

  • Scott

    @Gretchen

    The Women's has some shape to it-smaller at the waist and bigger in the hips and chest. The men's is more cylindrical and is longer by 3 inches.

    Hi; I'm trying to gauge how effective the vest might be for holding several individual SLR camera lenses at once, in the various pockets; say, 4 different lenses? Generally the girth of the lenses are all about the same, just the length varies...

    @Chris

    The rear pocket is HUGE on the Q.U.E.S.T and can fit multiple lenses. The two Easy Access Panels chest pockets should easily hold a lens (possibly two). Remember to size accordingly since you are planning to load up the pockets.

    Does every pocket close? Velcro or zipper?

    @Allison

    We have put so much thought into this vest. Every critical pocket that needs a zipper has one. Some pockets are closed by hook and loop (Velcro), while others are open.

    Hi Scott,

    I purchased Scottevest in black to take overseas Dec. '12. Even though the vest was washed and dried according to directions it pilled very badly. Your staff said to buy a devise that would depill. I asked to exchange, but no one ever called me back. Is this vest of different material? I love the pockets, but material was really a problem.

    We are very happy with the Q.U.E.S.T vest's fabric turned out. The fabric has been thoroughly updated from the Classic Travel Vest (the vest that you are referring to). The new fabric is Teflon treated for water and stain resistance. It also has an anti-static treatment. You're going to love the new fabric.

    The Men's 3XL is 31.5 inches long in the front and 33.5 inches in the back. I recommend measuring another vest that fits you and compare.
