Traveling Cross Country wasn’t going to be an easy task
Traveling cross country from New York to California with just a carry-on, as well as a personal bag, isn’t easy. Scottevest made traveling cross country easier with the seventeen pockets of heaven it offered me! The more I put in my pockets, the more room in my bags for goodies for the kids from Disneyland, and California Adventure!
Seventeen pockets sounds like a lot, but when you’re stuck with a carry-on and a gorgeous personal travel bag, while traveling cross country, seventeen pockets fill up quickly! Leaving New York at a crazy early hour, in the dead of winter when it’s pretty much ZERO DEGREES outside, is also difficult. The coat I chose need to be not just warm, but also lightweight so when I got to California, I wouldn’t sweat to death. The SeV Lola in the color Rhapsody was both warm when it needed to be, and lightweight when it needed to be.
Seventeen pockets for traveling cross country
Journeying to New York with ScotteVest
Into the pockets went my phone, wallet, earphones, sunglasses, and my iPad. If I didn’t put them in my pockets myself, I wouldn’t have believed they were in there. I also tucked a notebook, pen, and my boarding passes for my flight out of New York, into another inner pocket. It’s not easy traveling cross country. Organization keeps me sane. Plus, when the time came to go through security, no need to empty pockets. I took the jacket off, put it in the bin with my personal bag, and my TOMS shoes.
Once on the other side of security, everything slipped back on, I calmly wanked to my gate to wait patiently for my journey to begin. On the plane, the coat acted as a lovely blanket for my legs, because the plane was rather cold. It all worked out well!
Journeying home from California with ScotteVest
On the trip back from California, to New York, the coat was a life saver. A few things for the kids from Disneyland, and California Adventure, as well as Downtown Disney, took up a lot of room. There was more to pack than space. I re-packed a couple of times to make everything fit. Plus, it was important I could lift my carry-on over my head into overhead bins for my journey home to my babies! Much of what I traveled with in my personal bag ended up going into my 17 pockets, including ALL of the charging wires, and myCharge unit!
Functional and stylish
My favorite part about traveling cross country with my Lola jacket: Scottevest looked like nothing was in it. No one could know two notebooks, an iPad, earphones, two pens, a smartphone, sunglasses, boarding passes, my Shuttle information, a bunch of wires, and, an extra charger, were in my pockets. My personal bag had tons of swag in it, along with my camera, and of course, lots of “little Disney” items, and an entire outfit that didn’t fit into my carry-on! The carry-on, it was full, and it was heavier than when I traveled to California, but I was able to lift it over my head, so it all worked out.
Scottevest saved my butt traveling cross country home, plus major money. If I couldn’t fit it all, I’d have had to ship the items back home!
My new jacket was totally worth the investment, because now I can use it for my trips into New York City and save myself from having to lug a backpack every time! Even with the kids, I can load that jacket up with the iPad, Kindle, Nintendo DS and my camera – and have an enjoyable trip on the train!
TOTAL SCORE, and TWO THUMBS up for Scottevest SeV Lola.
