Your Expert Guide To Travel Clothing | SCOTTeVEST

Traveling means experiencing the best life has to offer: breath-taking natural wonders, exquisite cuisine, and fascinating cultures.

Whether you are on your grand vacation to the Amazon or your weekend hiking trip up the Flatirons, the last thing you want to worry about is your clothes.

You may think that specialty travel clothing is only for extreme climates, but the truth is that any travel situation is better with the right clothes.

The right travel clothing makes it easy to experience your journey without limitations.

You can pack your typical travel clothes into your suitcase, wear them during your travels, and live the moment without worrying about the elements.

But what if your clothes could do even more?

SCOTTeVEST’s travel apparel offers all this, plus copious hidden pockets that put all your essentials within reach. The added storage and security mean convenience when in transit and peace of mind at your destination.

To understand which travel-friendly clothing is right for you, keep reading.

What to Look For In Travel Clothing

Travel can be stressful if you are unprepared. With the right travel clothing, you can have one less thing to worry about.

Look for the following when deciding on your travel clothing.


Travel light, travel free. But this means you have to fit everything you need in a single suitcase. That sacrifices clothing choices.

You can bypass that by picking versatile clothing items:

  • Reversible — can be worn both ways
  • Zipped — different styles for additional clothing choices
  • Transformable — attach/detach sleeves for extra variations

Ease of Care

You may lack the energy to hang up delicate fabrics or iron the next day’s outfit at the end of a long travel day.

Travel clothes that can withstand being stuffed into a bag and worn every day of the week can be handy. Look for quick-dry and wrinkle-free clothes made from synthetic materials.


Minimalist style that’s nondescript is usually best when traveling.

You can not only mix and match from such a wardrobe but also blend wherever you are. Choose neutral colors and classic styles to maximize stylistic versatility.


What separates good travel clothes from great travel clothes is pocket science .

What’s that?

It’s the idea that how you carry your things should not be an afterthought.

You need quick access to your camera, backup battery, phone, and travel documents on a trip. Yet you also want your essentials secure as It’s easy to lose items when you’re out of your routine.

Designated pockets in travel clothing for housing all your essentials solve this.

Such travel clothing also helps you with tiresome travel moments. You can put all your electronics in your vest and remove it to get through security. You can use your travel jacket as a carry-on without worrying about weighting limits by the airlines.


Four hundred thousand people lose their wallets, documents, and other essentials to pickpockets every day. When you’re walking around in an unfamiliar place, it’s never wrong to be over-prepared.

Look for clothing with hidden compartments for your essential documents and cash — and better yet, RFID-protected pockets.

To find clothing that combines all these elements into the best travel gear, look no further than SCOTTeVEST’s exceptional lineup of travel clothing. There’s something for every type of traveler:

Our Customers Know Quality Travel Clothing Can Make All The Difference

“In Athens, my brother-in-law's passport was picked from his pocket on our very first day! We've heard horror stories about pickpockets in Barcelona so that incident made me all the more anxious. Thankfully I had my SCOTTeVEST jacket with 22 pockets to keep my belongings safe. Four days riding on crowded buses, subways, and walking along the infamous La Rambla without any incidents! Woohoo! This jacket has way too many cool features to talk about.”
— JB & Renee

"It beats dropping it all in a container and having to re-sort it all out after the security check, and I don’t have to worry about losing anything in the machine. Even with all these items in my vest, it still wears very comfortably for 10 hours a day or more. It’s definitely my favorite "Geek" accessory for carrying gear."
