Now, I know the title of this post might lead you to believe that this is a sponsored post, that I’m an affiliate, or that I’m getting some sort of kick-back from SCOTTeVEST – nope, nope, and nope! I’ve been trying to expand my writing a bit and showcase some of the brands I’ve used for years and love. If I’m always plugging a brand to my friends and family, it makes perfect sense that I share the love here as well! SCOTTeVEST makes my absolute favorite travel jackets and I couldn’t say enough good things about them… I also kinda want them all! I do have a couple affiliate links (via Amazon) within this post. If you click one of those links and subsequently make a purchase; I may get a small commission.
The Chloe Hoodie
I got my first SCOTTeVEST product for Christmas in 2013, Chloe Hoodie. My brother has always been good at purchasing perfect gifts, and this travel jacket did not disappoint! He helped me get out of my usual comfort zone (black or red) and grabbed me the hoodie in the purply color titled dare. Like all SCOTTeVEST products, this hoodie has a TON of pockets (14 to be exact) to fit everything you need! There are dedicated pockets for sunglasses, cell phone (with space to run your headphones through the hood), camera, SD card, keys, etc. The weight of the jacket is perfect for spring or autumn and the hood zips all the way up if you wanna prank your friends! One of my favorite parts of this jacket is that it is machine washable! I’ve had it for 3.5 years and it still looks great! This is my go-to travel/airplane jacket as it is warm, snuggly, and allows me to load up the pockets without looking like a crazy person. Also, the fewer bags I have to carry, the better!
The Molly Jacket
This past Christmas (2016), my brother knocked it out of the park again when he purchased me the ever-so-stylish Molly Jacket. This travel jacket is also perfect for spring or autumn, or on a slightly cool summer day. It is stylish without losing functionality. It boasts 17 pockets and even has room to store a tablet. I absolutely adore this jacket and can wear it on a night out and leave my purse at home! This awesome jacket is now no longer available, but their Trench coat offers much of the same style and functionality!
SCOTTeVEST also has a full line of clothing for men as well, including vests, jackets, hoodies, pants, and shirts. As a recipient of 2 of their products, these travel jackets make absolutely excellent gifts.
My brother offered a fantastic anecdote on Facebook, and gave me permission to post it here:
Once upon a time, for a class, I did a speech that these were the subject of. In that speech, we had a lady (a part of the group) bring her full-size purse to the front of the room and start emptying it item by item. I had already loaded a vest up with similar and larger items.
She pulled out some eyeshadow. I pulled out an entire 20 color palette. She pulled out her phone, I pulled out two. Sunglasses? Wallet? Passport? Check, check and check. Finally, she pulled out a seven–inch tablet… I removed a 15 inch MacBook Pro (there’s a huge pocket near the back vent).
An entire purse’s worth of stuff in my vest. Pretty amazing.
What do I have my eyes set on next? I can’t quite decide, to be honest! I’m loving the look of their pants, especially since I’m in the market for a good travel pant, but am also in love with the cardigans, and well…ALL the jackets haha.
Whenever I know I’ll be flying or spending the day traveling about and don’t wanna carry a large purse, I always reach for one of these travel jackets first. They are comfortable, fit me perfectly, and the styles differ enough to suit my mood! Three cheers for SCOTTeVEST!!
