Scottevest, makers of technology-enabled clothing for discreetly carrying and charging a variety of electronics, has created a super-cool and lightweight water-resistant jacket that should be a boon to travelers.
At first glance, the Scottevest Tropiformer jacket looks like a sturdy Windbreaker. But investigate further and you’ll find 22 integrated pockets and pouches inside and out, some with hidden pockets inside the pockets.
Labels and color-coded zippers identify places for pens, cameras, cellphones, a wallet, passport and other valuables. It also has a stowable hood, hand-warmer pockets and dedicated places for coins, multiple pairs of eyeglasses and styluses.
My favorite feature for travelers: removable sleeves that attach to the jacket with strategically placed magnets. Some pockets are interconnected so battery packs, chargers and headphones can discreetly connect.
