Now, I know what you're thinking: "A vest? Really?" My husband said "You're going to look like a fisherwoman!" But trust me, this is no ordinary vest. It's like a magic portal to an organized and hassle-free travel experience:) With this versatile and pocket-laden wonder, you'll breeze through airports, explore hidden corners of foreign cities, and still manage to NOT look like a fisherwoman.


  1. Comfort: First things first, let's talk comfort. The Scottevest 101 Vest understands that when it comes to traveling, comfort is key. Made with a lightweight and breathable fabric, it keeps you cool during those warmer temps and cozy during chilly mountain hikes. It was an excellent layer on the chilly plane.

  2. Pockets for Days: Ah, the pockets! All NINE of them! Prepare to have your mind blown, friends. The Scottevest 101 Vest boasts a seemingly endless array of pockets in all shapes and sizes, like a Mary Poppins bag on steroids. You'll find pockets for your phone, passport, sunglasses, lipstick, snacks, and more. I was able to carry my phone, passport, iPad, plane tickets, ear phones, a pack of peanuts and sunglasses without looking BULKY.

    • 5 Exterior Pockets

    • 4 Interior Pockets

    • Special Tablet Pocket

    • Dedicated Cell phone pocket

    No more fumbling through a bottomless carry-on bag in search of your essentials. With this vest, everything has its designated pocket!

  3. Anti-Theft Features: I was pleasantly surprised to find a couple of anti-theft properties to the vest. There is a special RFID pocket and a key holder that is attached inside one of the front outer pockets to keep keys secure. Zippers help prevent things from falling out and from wandering hands from going in!

  4. Fashion Forwardness: We all know that looking fabulous while trotting the globe is a top priority. The Scottevest 101 Vest gets it. Designed with a sleek and stylish silhouette. It's low profile and all of the pockets aren't super obvious so you don't stick out like a tourist from a mile away!


  1. A Pocket Odyssey: While the abundance of pockets is undeniably fantastic, it can become a bit of a treasure hunt when you're trying to remember which pocket you stashed your lip balm in. It's like a real-life game of hide-and-seek, except you're seeking your own belongings. I had an actual moment of panic at the airport thinking my passport was in one pocket when it was actually in a different get it. I quickly developed a system that made sense for me and was easy to remember where everything was stashed!

  2. Fit and Flatter: As much as I adore this vest, it's worth mentioning that the fit might not be a match made in heaven for everyone. The sizing can run a bit snug, so it's crucial to consult the sizing chart and maybe even consider sizing up for a more relaxed fit. I typically wear a medium in most items and did size up to a large for this vest. I am glad I did! I can wear it with thinner layers but it would be a bit snug with thick sweaters or jackets.

  3. Price: This is not a budget find, y'all! At $129, it's a quality, investment piece as far as I'm concerned. I can see myself wearing this on many adventures in the future so it was worth it for me.

All in all, Scottevest 101 Vest is a game-changer in the world of travel fashion. It's a multitasking wonder that frees up your hands and lets you roam the world without the hassle of a bulky bag. With its unparalleled comfort, plethora of pockets, and undeniable style, I am very happy with the purchase and plan to check out some of their other goodies.
