I laugh at my boyfriend whenever we’re trying to leave the house because he takes longer to get ready than I do. He’s forever trying to figure out how to carry all his stuff — wallet, keys, cell phone, Blackberry, PDA, camera, notebook, pen, chapstick… the list goes on. He has two, maybe three, useful pockets for all this stuff. And he refuses to use a small bag because “Men don’t carry purses.” It leads me to question my devotion to this man.
Because I love him — and because I’m tired of being late — I got him a ScotteVest fleece jacket/vest. SeV makes clothing and outerwear with hidden pockets that allow you to carry everything without looking like you’re carrying anything. The jackets are particularly impressive with about a dozen pockets lining the inside and only four visible zippers outside; perfect for carrying small electronics and anything else a guy needs. It’s great for cold weather and will even work on warmer days due to the removable sleeves.
I plan to sneak away with it next time I head to the airport. It’ll make the security check a breeze.
