The SCOTTeVEST RFID Travel Vest with pockets, solves the problems associated with travelling in an impressive amount of storage.
Needless to say, being a “Techhead” comes with a few challenges especially when you are going on a trip. Low-cost carriers often have very tight baggage restrictions, which can make it hard to get all your devices into your luggage that meets load limits. On arrival, there is also the anxiety to make sureall valuables are kept out of the hands of thieves (mostly pickpockets).
SCOTTeVEST vests are intended to solve these challenges. The company’s latest addition to the range, RFID Travel Vest, has an added attribute: protection of RFID-readable payment cards including passports from portable skimmers. RFID cards aren’t in use in all countries, so skimming isn’t yet a big issue, but is viewed as a potential problem(plus it’s pretty cool to have a bit of future technology).
This new model has a total of 26 pockets, one of them large enough for anything up to a MacBook Pro 15.
It can comfortably fit a MacBook Air (11 inches), iPad Air, an external hard drive,an iPhone, with 22 pockets left!
The pockets are majorly on the inside of the vest andsecure against pickpockets. The RFID-blocking pocket has a red zip which overlaps with the iPad pocket which is large enough for a passport as well as a wallet.
INTERNAL CORD RUNS
There are a couple of other features of this product aimed firmly at Techies. First among them, is the Personal Area Network, which allows routing of earphone cords inside the vest making certain only short lengths of the cord hang loose. Getting rid of the usual tangled cord problem, meaning a user can simply pop earphones out of their ears leaving them dangling loose when desired. There are loops clipping the cord, in a similar style to that used by interior cable management systems.Secondly, there are small connecting holes in most of the pockets. The idea of these is that if you need to recharge devices on the go, you can place your power-pack in one pocket, then route the USB cord to the devices you want to charge. A pretty simple innovation, because stuffing power-bank withdevices in a single pocket is often difficult as well asrisking damaging screens.
SCOTTeVEST travel vest with pockets get their inspiration from photographer’s vests. The difference being that the latter have pockets on outside, though are generally without zips (You also look like a dork wearing one).
Color choices vary from black, navy, khaki to olive.The company claims the vest is designedto distribute weight evenly, depending onhow it is loaded, it is quite easy to carry even with a lot of kit.
Though moderately priced, the SCOTTeVEST RFID travel vest with pockets can be expected to be worn at home and on the go, and is durable to withstand the most harsh of situations. It has proven to be invaluable, cutting cost of hold-baggage charges, and for peace of mind ( knowing all your valuables are safe).The RFIDTravel Vest is available for $135 from Amazon.
