The Short Version: When you go on a date, it’s best to be prepared for anything. You never know where the date might lead, so you should go in an outfit that’s ready for anything. SCOTTeVEST can help with that. This uniquely functional clothing line gives people enough pockets to hold anything they might need for a day of fun. You can store sunglasses, mobile devices, cash, makeup, snacks, and all sorts of stuff in dozens of unobtrusive pockets. SCOTTeVEST offers a range of style choices from smart polo shirts to lightweight dresses. Every piece of clothing is fitted with several pockets designed to hold all your daily essentials, so you’re ready for a day in the wilderness or a night on the town.//

I come from a long line of movie-theater-candy smugglers. Every time we saw a movie when I was growing up, my mom would pack her biggest purse full of soda cans, candy bars, sandwiches, and all kinds of snacks. Once she even smuggled our 12-week-old dachshund puppy into the theater.

Now, I’m nowhere near that bold, but I do like to bring sugary treats to munch on at the movies. Whenever my date suggests we go see a movie, I come prepared with a candy-packed purse because sharing Skittles or gummy worms makes the date that much sweeter.

Guys often comment that they wish their pockets could hold all the treats that fit in my purse. Well, thanks to SCOTTeVEST, they can.

SCOTTeVEST is a revolutionary line of clothing that ingeniously stores a crazy amount of stuff. These vests, jackets, hoodies, pants, and dresses can feature as many as 42 hidden pockets designed to carry your electronic devices, keys, cash, water bottles, as well as the candy of your choice. SCOTTeVEST has over 60 stylish and versatile products in stock, so you can fill your closet with useful clothes to suit all kinds of dating situations.

SCOTTeVEST designs clothing with integrated pockets to hold everything you need on your date.

If you love hiking with your significant other, but don’t like carrying around a bulky backpack of stuff, you can wear a SCOTTeVEST fleece jacket on your next outdoor date. This functional piece of clothing offers you easy access to your sunglasses, smartphones, and anything else you want to pack. Dozens of hidden, multi-purpose pockets keep everything neatly tucked away. Designed for optimum comfort, the jacket’s lightweight material won’t weigh you down as you explore the wilderness in style.

“You can have what you need on your person at any time,” said Luke Lappala, Director of Communications at SCOTTeVEST. “It opens a universe of things you can carry with you.”

In 2000, a Couple Decided to Pack More Value Into Clothing

The inspiration for SCOTTeVEST came from a couple’s hiking frustrations. In 2000, many portable devices were coming out on the market, but the clothing industry had yet to catch up to the needs of the modern consumer. Most pockets were too small to carry a charger, camcorder, or mp3 player (it was a simpler time), so people ended up carrying bags full of tangled wires.

Scott and Laura often ran into complications when going out on hikes together. Scott is a gadget guy, so he wanted to take along all his favorite devices on every nature hike. However, Laura soon grew tired of lugging around his stuff in her purse. The couple came up with a DIY solution: sewing versatile inside pockets into a fisherman’s vest. Now Scott could carry whatever he wanted without troubling his wife or having to hold a man purse.

The couple knew they were onto something — they couldn’t be the only ones dreaming of a seamless hiking experience — so they designed a line of clothing engineered with dozens of smart pockets that strategically conceal wires, carry the essentials, and hold a lot of value for people always on the go.

Today, SCOTTeVEST is an internationally renowned company with a close-knit team of 20 employees. The co-founders have seen to it that the company culture is as fun and versatile as the clothing it produces. “We work hard and play hard,” Luke explained.

In 2015, SCOTTeVEST became a dog-friendly workplace, and that doesn’t just mean employees can bring their dogs to work. The company encourages team members to adopt a furry friend by paying the adoption fees. Plus, a dog walker comes in once a week to take all the pups in the office around the block to get some exercise.

The company’s core principles are honesty, integrity, and transparency. That startup has grown by fostering open communication between team members and building trust with customers. The fast-paced work environment appeals to high-energy individuals who enjoy solving problems and being creative.

According to the company’s website, “Here at SCOTTeVEST, we are committed to rewarding people who can embrace moving quickly without sacrificing accuracy.”

Smart Clothes Come With as Many as 42 Useful Pockets

Many outdoorsy couples enjoy striking out on their own on a camping trip. There’s just something romantic about sharing a rustic meal by the campfire and sleeping under the stars. You and your significant other can work together on simple tasks and savor each other’s company without all the distractions of daily life.

Of course, camping trips also involve a lot of planning and sometimes a little frustration when you can’t find your gear or you have to unpack everything in your bag just to find some lip gloss. However, SCOTTeVEST can make your packing nightmares go away by providing simple and functional clothing that can hold your odds and ends in a more organized way.

“My wife was ecstatic as she no longer had to carry all of our stuff in her handbag. I will never travel without my SCOTTeVEST.” — Chris Finton, a satisfied customer

SCOTTeVEST’s one-of-a-kind garments have as many as 42 pockets to suit people facing all sorts of packing challenges. Whether you need a water-resistant pocket for your phone or a secure zip pocket for your keys, you can count on these clothes to offer a solution. Many of these smart pockets have been custom designed for a specific carrying purpose. No more rummaging around for a water bottle in a colossal backpack. No more worrying that your cash or keys will fall out of your jeans pockets.

You can choose a lightweight vest in the summer or a fleece jacket in the winter. From top to bottom, SCOTTeVEST’s array of clothing makes it much easier for you to plan a hassle-free and romantic trip in the great outdoors.

“Everything is right where you need it right when you need it, and you don’t have to worry about losing it,” Luke said. “You know, you can always walk off without your backpack, but I doubt you’ll walk off without your shirt or pants.”

The Women’s Clothing Line Offers Stylish & Functional Attire

SCOTTeVEST recently expanded its women’s clothing line to include functional skirts and dresses that feature up to seven pockets. Because women should be able to look good and carry stuff at the same time — without bringing along a bulky purse.

This isn’t rocket science. It’s “pocket science.” Women can leave their purses at home when they wear the Debbie Dress, a flattering and functional fashion statement available in four colors. This comfortable dress features seven pockets ideally placed to store a phone, money, sunglasses, a credit card, and beauty products.

“I like this dress a lot,” said Arpita in a review. “I can add a scarf or a necklace and wear different shoes for a new look… this dress is perfect for travel.”

“I wore this dress for a reception and was very glad for all the pockets,” added Ngiamsw in another five-star review. “No more handbag or clutch to deal with. It is very flattering on and can be easily dressed up.”

SCOTTeVEST’s Sandy Skirt is equally popular among women going to parties or out on dates. The stretchy black fabric allows the wearer to conceal her valuables while still showing off her figure. This short skirt has all the functionality of long pants — without a lot of bulky material weighing you down.

If you’re looking for comfortable, practical, and attractive date attire, SCOTTeVEST’s revolutionary line of dresses and skirts might be for you.

SCOTTeVEST: A Convenient Solution for Daters on the Go

Over the last decade, SCOTTeVEST has earned quite a following, and its loyal fan base even includes some celebrities. “I do love my SCOTTeVEST products,” said Steve Wozniak, Co-Founder of Apple and SCOTTeVEST Board Member. “I am a true fan of yours.”

Adam Baldwin wore SCOTTeVEST gear in six episodes of season two of “Chuck,” and Adam West (aka Batman) stopped by a SCOTTeVEST store to find a stylish alternative to a utility belt. The SCOTTeVEST team loves knowing they’re helping people from all walks of life overcome storage challenges and bring their gadgets with them everywhere.

The SCOTTeVEST team celebrated selling its 10 millionth pocket in 2014.

Daters wearing a SCOTTeVEST garment can discreetly carry all their gadgets, gear, and goodies so they’re prepared for any eventuality.
