Several years ago I heard about a new travel product, the Scottevest, a jacket or vest with lots of pockets, ideal for travelers. At the time the products seemed a bit pricey, but I eventually broke down and bought a jacket with detachable sleeves.
While the idea was great, the jacket didn’t quite work for me. First, I was going to a warmish climate so a jacket wasn’t ideal. Second, I’m not really one to wear a jacket on a plane. Finally, I tried to stuff as much as possible into my pockets making it feel bulky. I blame the idea of the scottevest no luggage challenge.
Bottom line, it didn’t quite work for me. It wasn’t the fault of the jacket, just a poor choice for me. But in my own defense, their offerings for woman back then were a little slim.
As time went on I kept looking at the woman’s line and noticed that it had improved greatly. This winter I decided to bite the bullet and buy one of the woman’s fleeces, I chose the Chloe Hoodie. I LOVE it!

*It’s soft, fuzzy, and womanly. It’s definitely designed for woman.
*I love the personal area network, I couldn’t believe how easy it was to put my headphones through the hoodie. Usually, it’s a pain in the butt. And it has loops that keep the headphones in place.
*Pen pockets, how many times have you been on a plane and needed a pen? Now I don’t have to search through my bag, yea!
*Lots of pockets, but not overwhelming. I can store my iPhone, money, blistex, sunglasses, and even a kindle. I could probably get more then that in there too, but then I would feel loaded down. But really, that’s enough to keep me busy.
*Thumb holes. I haven’t used these yet, but since I’m always cold, I can see them in my future.
*Everyone compliments me on it too!

Scottevest jackets, fleece, vests, and pants aren’t cheap, but they’re a good quality equal to their price. If the price scares you off, look around, Scottevest often offers 20% discounts on their merchandise. Will I buy more? I’ve been eyeing the pants for my next long trip; but, I would prefer to wait until they offer petite sizes. They have said on their website they are looking into it.
