dealTV: How Much Can You Fit In A SCOTTeVEST?
These jackets, which are a gadget geek's dream, are littered with all sorts of pockets, so it was no easy task filling the thing up. We had to dip into our retired-device box to get anywhere near capacity. (Handspring Visor, anyone?)
Although it's truly capacious, the SCOTTeVEST's quality is far from stunning. The Velcro that hides the hood ripped clean off the first time we opened it. The large "butt pocket" tore away under the weight of a laptop (which is suggested). Also, most of the zippers stuck (as you'll see in the video). When we tried to force the zippers, we felt we were in danger of tearing the thin lining.
At $150, it's very expensive for a lightweight jacket. But in its defense, just compare how many other jackets you'd need to buy to match the same amount of pockets (and you couldn't even wear them all at one time). The SCOTTeVEST is the best when it comes to sheer volume of storage. Too bad it falls apart if you use it as intended.
Don't believe us when we say it's cavernous? Look at what we managed to get in it:
