I received a SCOTTeVEST Chloe Hoodie to facilitate this review; all opinions are my own.
For the last few weeks I’ve been wearing a SCOTTeVEST Chloe hoodie at work and around town and have been loving it. The Chloe hoodie has fourteen pockets, so it has tons of space for all the things I might need throughout the day. It easily holds my phone, glasses, wallet, camera, and even my 8″ tablet. It holds so much, that I’ve been using the Chloe hoodie in place of my purse, and it’s been great not having to carry around a whole extra bag.
When worn, the SCOTTeVEST Chloe hoodie looks totally normal, even when full of various items. I confirmed with all my friends and none of them could tell I was packing around my tablet, phone, and wallet, even when viewed directly from the front. I’m sure this will come in handy on any future vacations, as there is also a passport pocket, and being less conspicuous with valuables will go a long way towards deterring potential thieves.
SCOTTeVEST Chloe Hoodie: Organization
Looking at the inside of the Chloe hoodie you will see various pockets all labeled with what item is intended to go in that spot. In addition to the aforementioned pockets, there’s also spots for headphones, pens, and change. Two more things I really like about the Chloe hoodie are the internal key chain on a bungee cord and an attached micro-fiber cloth for cleaning screens and lenses, both are very convenient.
SCOTTeVEST Chloe Hoodie: Style & Comfort
The SCOTTeVEST Chloe is a good looking hoodie and very comfortable. It’s made from an extremely soft 100% Poly Microfleece that I really like. The whole Chloe hoodie is very lightweight and has thumb holes on the sleeves, which I think also makes it a good choice for exercising or day hiking, especially given all the storage options for your keys, wallet, and phone. Plus it’s machine washable and perfect for most any season. It’s light enough for spring and summer and can be easily layered for fall and winter.
The only thing I didn’t care for was the infinity zipper on the hood. Instead of zipping up to the throat and having drawstrings for the hood, there is a zipper that goes all the way up to the top of the hood. I’m not a fan of that feature, though it’s really not an issue given the overall usefulness and comfort and good looks of the hoodie.
SCOTTeVEST Chloe Hoodie: Options & Additional Styles
The Chloe is available in three colors – Dare (black), Magic (deep purple with black cuffs and hood interior), and Kiss (chocolate brown with pink cuffs and inside hood detail). It comes in sizes XS to XX-Large. I should note that I read reviews before ordering that suggested that the hoodie runs small, so I ordered one size up. It turns out the reviews were right. Also, it’s an athletic, trim cut, so if you have a larger chest, or curvy figure, it may not be the style for you. The Chloe retails for $90 on the SCOTTeVest website.
SCOTTeVEST offers a wide variety of everyday and travel options for men and women. Plus, they’ve just released a new travel vest that they’re calling the ULTIMATE Travel Vest and they may just be right. The new RFID Travel Vest has a built-in Radio-Frequency Identification blocking pocket which will protect passports and credit cards with RFID tags from being scanned by thieves. There are some limitations to what the pocket can block, but it provides another layer of safety between you and the bad guys. It’s available for both men (18 pockets) and women (17 pockets), one of which is fully transparent so you can operate your device’s touch screen without having to remove it from your pocket. There’s also a hotel safe key to prevent your keycard from being de-magnetized. This new RFID Travel Vest sells for $135.

I would definitely recommend the Chloe hoodie to my friends and family because of the style, comfort, organization, and overall usefulness, especially to the travelers among them.
