JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
A couple months back I picked up my first vest specifically designed to bring my worlds together. I love getting outdoors and I certainly love my tech! It's important to me that I have the tools I need to capture every beautiful skyline, sunset and adventure when I'm out too, and that's where the tech comes in!
SCOTTeVEST is a company that has committed itself to making the best "tech clothing" on the market, and if we are going off of the SeV Sportmans...mission accomplished! Before I get into the actual vest though, let me break down why it's so fashionable AND functional for me.
This one is easy. I am a big, bald, ugly dude, so that hip indie look that I dream of pulling off simply isn't an option. That said, taking my lemons and make myself some lemonade is about all I can do here so I gladly trade in those skinny jeans and Florsheim ankle boots in for a set Nothface mountaineering pants and Keen hikers. Yup, that perfectly fitted, wrinkle free sports coat goes bye bye and a sweet new outdoorsman's tech vest gets worn proud.
The look of the SCOTTeVEST Sportsman Vest is exactly the style I like! The ONLY downside for me...Made in China. I know, I know, I get it...our Country has created a climate that makes it tough for companies to compete and even survive if they don't go international, but it would be nice if possible is all I'm saying. Don't let the tag fool you though...SCOTTeVEST is nothing but high quality. I was very impressed with how well made the SeV Sportman Vest is made. Definitely not complaints on quality.
You guys know by now that capturing the perfect outdoor adventure is what I'm fortunate enough to do as a career. That type of gig takes a lot of creativity, preparation, and gear! The SCOTTeVEST Sportsman Vest allows me to comfortably carry a few items that make the difference between good and great content. From music to inspire, a camera to capture, and an iPad to edit, I can take it all easily when I venture off from the luxury of my office, aka...my Jeep.
If you're a photographer, film maker, professional outdoorsman or the average guy hitting the trail for the day with the fam, you will LOVE this vest.
Made from Rungspin cotton canvas and treated with a Teflon fabric protector this vest can hold up to the harshest conditions. Although rated for Springtime/Summertime weather, I found that keeping my core warm in the Southern California winter wasn't a problem with a layer or two.
The pockets aren't just designed to shove junk in either. SCOTTeVEST has designed their gear tech specific! The devices fit tight and secure to give the safest and most comfortable experience as possible. Trust me...with 24 pockets, that's a great thing!
All in all SCOTTeVEST not only gets a big thumbs up on fit, function and fashion...they have won me over as a customer for life. Check out the full product line at:
