It's probably not a coincidence that the SeV Q.U.E.S.T. Vest for Men has 42 pockets... considered by some to be a Universally (with a capital U) significant number. The Q.U.E.S.T. Vest may not hold any galactic secrets, but it can surely carry all the stuff you need, to do what you love to do. We engineered the Q.U.E.S.T. to be what you wear, wherever you are going, for whatever you are doing. It looks like a vest, but it is actually a new, epic category of clothing. We want you to put your mark on it… to make it your own. Add your own hook-and-loop pouches inside the tricot panel pockets. Stow the hood if you don't need it. Find the best layout of gear for you and run with it. Just like a New Jersey diner, it's all on the menu 24/7. This vest is made for you to experiment, explore and customize. Think of it as a black box of potential… and with more pockets than on any single SeV product ever, it might just change the way you look at things. (By "things" we mean clothing, life, the universe… everything.)
Quite simply, the Q.U.E.S.T. Vest is designed to carry all the stuff you need, to do whatever you love. In a way, it's like a sleeveless security blanket… with 42 pockets. We consulted with customers about their favorite activities, what they carried with them in their SeVs, and any wishlist items to add to make this Q.U.E.S.T. Vest their quintessential, go-to clothing item. When we saw some of the answers, we weren't sure. A hood on a vest? More exterior pockets? Is Zombie Apocalypse Survival actually an activity, and if it is, do we have enough tomahawks to go around? Some of it left us scratching our heads, but we trust you, and this is the result!
You'll need to read the full "Pocket Inventory" below for the detailed story of all 42 pockets, but some of our favorite features of this ultimate vest are:
RFID-blocking Pocket - with identity theft on the rise (and essentially everyone tracking your every move at all times), we wanted to build in a pocket lined with RFID-blocking material. It's engineered to help protect your credit cards and passport from RFID skimmers the way our secure internal pockets protect you against pickpockets (and yes, our $1,000 Anti-Pickpocket Guarantee does apply to the Q.U.E.S.T.).
PackPocket™ - this is a brand new pocket concept for SeV. This massive, exterior back pocket has the storage capacity of a small backpack, and it great even for larger items that won't fit in another pocket, or are too awkward to carry elsewhere. If you're out and about with a group of friends, it's a great place to carry snacks, maps or spares for the team. It even has internal mesh pockets to help keep things organized, and is designed to not flop open if you forget to close it completely.
Multiple Power Pockets - how do you turn the coolest gadgets in the world into paperweights? Just wait awhile. Power is the critical weakness in being "off grid" with gadgets, and being off grid could even mean going to the grocery store. If you're not charging, you're draining, and it's a very apparent problem even with new tech like Google Glass. SeV solves the problem with several Power Pockets engineered with our patented Personal Area Network (PAN) to help you wire battery packs from just about any pocket to just about any other pocket. Power problem: solved. This tech-vest is the foreseeable future of wearable computing.
Easy Access Panels - the Q.U.E.S.T. Vest has huge panel pockets accessible from the exterior front of the vest, with interior organization to get to your gear quickly. Great for carrying a tablet if you need to get to it easily, and because it's lined with soft tricot material like a camera bag, you can attach hook-and-loop accessories.
Hood - this was a repeated request from customers, and we didn't really "get it," but now we actually think it's pretty cool. If you agree… great! Hoods for everybody. If it's not your favorite idea in the world, it's stowable in the collar, and just as easily brought back into action if you change your mind.
