Scottevest Ups the Ante on Tech Clothing

Transform Yourself with a Transformer Jacket 

I’ve been transformed!

Those of you that have been following my babble for the past few years know that I’m a huge fan of the Scottevest line of clothing, having worn (and reviewed) various incarnations of jackets, shirts, fleece and pants. Now, the guru of hidden pockets has hit the market with the Transformer jacket ($160).

The new, lightweight jacket features removable sleeves that are held in place by 12 rare-earth magnets, 20 pockets that can hold everything from your pens to your iPad and Scott’s patented PAN system that enables you to hide wires from your headset or earphones and attach them to your mobile devices.

We’ve worn the Transformer jacket in the rain, during tornado warnings and on the beach, trying to scruff it up a bit and it still looks like new. Also, the devices we were carrying seemed unfazed by the whole process (even our iPhones still worked after the ordeals).

Other features include:

·         Interior, clear-touch cell phone pockets that allow you to use the devices while they are still protected by the pockets.

·         Zippered pockets within pockets.

·         A weight management system that balances the weight of whatever you’re carrying.

·         Wind and water resistant material.

The only change I’d make is with the Velcro “clasps” at the end of the sleeves. Those of us with thin wrists end up with strips of Velcro flapping aimlessly about because they overlap the strip to which they need to be attached.  A second, or longer, Velcro landing area --- or a way to tuck the Velcro flaps inside the end of the sleeves - - - could have easily solved that problem.
