In this episode I review the SCOTTeVEST Tropiformer Jacket, a collaboration between SCOTTeVEST and ThinkGeek, and we think it holds up great for multi-seasonal travel. SCOTTeVEST is known for making Technology Enabled Clothing that allows you to carry pretty much all of your gadgets, including tablets and even a laptop if you want to, right in your jacket, thanks to the myriad of pockets they include in their garments. In the case of the Tropiformer, that's 22 pockets, including a pocket specifically for your smartphone that allows you to use the phone right through the pocket. The sleeves on the Tropiformer are also easily removed and replaced, thanks to an ingenious magnet system.
You can pick up the SCOTTeVEST Tropiformer now from ThinkGeek.

Our friends over at Scottevest have just released its newest jacket, which it says is its best ever in the Tropiformer. In partnership with ThinkGeek, the Tropiformer features 22 pockets of various sizes that can hold things as small as a pen, to as large as a full-sized tablet. Like other Scottevest products, the Tropiformer also features the patented Personal Area Network, which allows you to wire your cabling through the fabric of the jacket itself, keepings things nice and neat. Oh, and the sleeves are connected to the jacket with magnets, making them super easy to remove and re-attach.
The Tropiformer jacket is available now, and can be purchased for $150 in blue, gray, cement, or red. We'll have a full review shortly.

The SCOTTeVEST 237D is the updated version of the Three.0 Spring jacket that we reviewed about a year-and-a-half ago. We have been testing out the 237D in Seattle weather for much of December, and are finding that the 237D moniker - which stands for “237 days,” meaning you can wear it for 3-out-of-4 seasons per year - lives up to its name for the most part. The 237D features 33 pockets, and adds the Detachable Cargo Cache, built-in battery holders, addition magnetic enclosures, and two more pockets than the Three.0 Spring. Check out the full review after the jump.
