Comparison with other travel jackets for women
Ten reasons why the SCOTTeVEST gets our vote for the best travel jacket of 2019:
1: It's like wearable carry on luggage
- With an impressive 23 pockets, designed to carry everything but the kitchen sink, you can easily store all of your travel essentials including headphones, water bottle, Kindle, cell phone, iPad, passport etc.
- This helps you speed through airport security. Simply slip off your jacket and place it through the detectors. No more spending ages in line taking your gadgets in and out of your carry-on luggage.
- It also keeps all of your essentials within reach throughout the plane journey, meaning you won't have to constantly get out of your seat and reach into the overhead lockers. Everything you need will be at your fingertips (and the surrounding passengers will thank you for it).
2: It protects your passport information
- According to The Guardian, with the introduction of wireless payment options for credit cards and identity chips inserted in passports, it has become increasingly easy for scammers to use hidden scanning devices to steal your personal information.
- Scammers hide scanning devices inside their bags, gloves or jackets and walk closely behind you skimming your personal information.
- With this in mind, SCOTTeVEST has included RFID technology within a hidden internal pocket that blocks skimming devices, keeping your sensitive information safe and secure.
3: It has a personal connectivity network built-in
- SCOTTeVEST is the only company with a Technology Enabled Clothing (TEC®) patent for a Personal Area Network (US Patent No. RE40613).
- This innovative system allows you to run charging wires between your jacket pockets for powering up your devices. You can also feed your headphones through your jacket collar for ease of use.
4: It turns into a travel vest for warmer weather
Removable sleeves are perfect for warmer weather.
5: You can throw it in the washing machine
- After weeks of traipsing through airports, visiting monuments and exploring the world, you will appreciate the option of simply poping the jacket into the washing machine, knowing it will come out good as new.
6: It is stain repellent and water-resistant
- When you are traveling around you need the confidence that your jacket can take anything you throw at it. So having fabric that is water-resistant and stain-proof is an absolute must.
7: High in natural fibers
- Unlike many other travel jackets that are polyester, the SCOTTeVEST Jacket is 65% cotton, making it more breathable and comfortable for travel.
8: You can wear it after your vacation
- Some travel jackets I have had in the past just screamed “TOURIST” and I never felt I could wear them again once I got home.
- But the SCOTTeVEST Women's Jacket is stylish and practical enough to wear once you get back from your trip.
- I live by the coast, and love wearing it when I take my dogs for a walk on the beach. I also find the extra pockets super handy as I go about my day.

9: Weight management design
- The jacket has been incredibly well thought out and designed to include a Weight Management System.
- This system distributes the weight of items evenly, maximizes carrying capacity and optimizes comfort.
10: Reasonable price point for quality
- Given that SCOTTeVEST is an American company that has been designing travel jackets for over 18 years, they know a thing or two about creating high-quality jackets.
- So it is awesome to see that they price their SCOTTeVEST Women's Jacket at under $180, as many other quality brands price point at around $200.
- Of course, you will also have your cheap knock-off versions that ship from China and end up falling apart after a few weeks of wear. Not to mention the crazy shipping times, meaning you have to wait months to get your item (if you get it at all)!
- Overall, we feel the SCOTTeVEST gives you the best quality for money.
