There were pockets inside pockets, reminding us of a Dr. Seuss rhyme. The nested compartments, sometimes well hidden in the lining or deep inside the jacket fabric, were secured with Velcro, zippers, mesh, straps, elastic bands, a clip for identification or nothing at all. These closure options made the jacket a pocket lover’s dream. The challenge sometimes was remembering what pocket I had put things in when I needed to retrieve them.
The sleeves were easy to remove, making the Scottevest more comfortable in warm weather. In case of inclement weather a removable folded hood was attached with Velcro to the collar. In addition, the multiple pocket option made the jacket ideal for airline travel. With all the carry-on luggage restrictions and crowded overhead compartments it provided additional carry-on space.
