From action cameras to smartphones, technology continues to evolve to fit your on-the-go lifestyle. But sometimes, it seems like clothing fails to keep up.
Most apparel isn’t designed to carry your gadgets or keep them organized. For the savvy tech user, carrying around a backpack full of your tech and other accessories using a Grid-It organizer seems like the only solution — if you consider it a solution.
Some people may have tried to repurpose a jacket from The North Face or a Patagonia vest as their main source for carrying all their tech. But those brands don’t design their clothing with tech in mind. You might find a fishing vest from REI to hold all your cables and gadgets, but who wants to wear that every day .
What you need is a tech vest.
A tech vest is a vest specifically designed to hold your items in a comfortable, accessible way. That means it can hold your tablet, smartphone, cables, accessories, and more. Plus, the right tech vest is just as stylish as it is useful.
The good news is that a tech vest isn’t just for tech bros or business people in Silicon Valley finance firms — though it’s a great clothing option for them. A tech vest is for anyone who wants a better way to carry their technology, and these days, that’s most of us.

Benefits of Tech Vests
Vests have become a staple of tech hubs from San Francisco to New York.
So when you read “tech vest,” you might be thinking of the fleece vest, usually paired with slacks and commonly referred to as a “Midtown Uniform.”
But those vests aren’t as functional as you require.
A real tech vest is built to accommodate and organize your everyday gadgets — phones, tablets, cameras, and even laptops. Not only can they carry your essential devices, but they’re also a versatile layer that you can pair with other outerwear.
Tech vests are easy to pack and keep handy in your vehicle or use as a bonus carry-on when you travel.
When you keep your gadgets in a tech vest, you don’t have to worry about lugging around a handbag or backpack. Even better, you don’t have to worry about setting down your bag and forgetting it somewhere. All of your gear stays secure and on you at all times.
Makings of a Functional Technology Vest
There aren’t many companies that produce vests for technology. This causes users to shove their large smartphones in pockets barely big enough to carry a USB stick.
So instead of searching for a vest that will fit your tech, look for a vest designed for your tech.
Here are a few must-have features and benefits to keep in mind.
- High-quality materials
- Large pockets
- Interior pockets
- Balanced weight distribution
- Stylish design
- Carry your tablet or laptop with you
- Prevent devices from falling out
- Protect against pickpocketing
- Avoid neck and shoulder pain
- Look and feel good
You won’t find these qualities in most vests. Instead, you need to invest in a quality product like a vest from SCOTTeVEST.
SCOTTeVEST Tech Vests
When Scott Jordan founded SCOTTeVEST , he started with the goal of creating a stylish, comfortable vest that can easily handle all his devices.
To this day, he believes that tech vests should be as good-looking as they are practical.
Scott spent years researching the science behind the perfect pockets to ensure that.
Here are a few of the pocket science elements that go into making the perfect tech vest for customers across the globe.
Smart Wire Management
SCOTTeVEST products come with hidden CollarConnect>sup>TM systems inside the vest near the collar to organize your wires and prevent them from turning into balls of yarn.
Specifically designed DeepPocketsTM keep your devices from falling out even when you bend over. In addition, SCOTTeVEST uses interior pockets — and even RFID pockets — to protect against pickpocketing.
Personal Area Network
The patented Personal Area Network (PAN) is a system of hidden conduits that lets you route wires between pockets so you can store a battery pack in one pocket and connect the wire to your phone or tablet in another.
Weight Management SystemTM
Carrying your devices in a backpack can result in shoulder pain. It’s even worse when you carry all your items on one side in a purse (or a shoulder bag). That’s why Scott consulted with chiropractors to develop the Weight Management SystemTM that evenly distributes weight throughout the vest without putting strain on your neck and shoulders.
