TiPb Gear: SCOTTEVEST Quantum Jacket, Fleece 5.0, Ultimate Hoodie for iPhone... and iPad!


Rene takes a look at the SCOTTEVEST Quantum Jacket, Fleece 5.0 Jacket, and Ultimate Hoodie, and talks to Scott about SeV's plans for the iPad!

As I explain in the video, this isn't stuff I was sent to review, it's stuff I bought to use. Based on a combination of the harsh Canadian winters, my proclivity for carrying a lot of gadgets around with me, and the traveling I've been doing to CES, Macworld, and now GDC next week, I went all in and have had good results.

The Quantum Jacket's weather resistant outer shell combined with the warmth of the Fleece 5.0 kept me going on those days when it's so cold your skin hurts on contact with the air. The dedicated, capacitive-touch friendly pockets for iPhone and iPod touch were great (though I need to make or get some capacitive gloves to really get the most out of them).

When traveling (especially this year with all the crazy security) being able to store an iPhone, iPod touch, cameras all the cables and headsets, not one but two mophie juice packs [iMore Store link], my passport, papers, pens, and everything else -- and just take it off and lay it in a security tray and then walk through the scanner is priceless. (Getting an inch around the "one carry-on rule" this year -- beyond priceless).

I also had the chance to send Scott some questions about their iPad compatibility, so check out the video below and let me know what you think!

Make the fleece liner removable via zipper, and add Kevlar layer for bullet resistance. Then I'm sold!

I've had a SEV jacket for going on 3 years.
It's the best piece of clothing I have ever bought.
The warmth it provides in the cold Michigan winters is impressive.
I recommend their jackets to anyone, not just nerds.

Screen toward your body.
I have a nook and carry it in inside pockets on a couple of my jackets. No matter how careful you it will take a bump now and then on the odd turnstile, chair arm, or door knob.
Save the glass side.

Neat. But why would one want to carry all of that? Leave the two spare iTouches behind, put the iPhone in the Morphie and charge it with the laptop if needed. As for all of the gum- maybe a trip to the dentist would knock out that chronic halitosis? ;)
Between the laptop, morphie and iphone battery, I count about 16 hours of usage time before needing an AC outlet (just one outlet- get a rollup iphone USB cable and charge it off the laptop).
I dunno. I guess I like to run light. I don't even carry the laptop anymore! I routinely fly from Illinois to California with a morphied iPhone, skull candies and a rollup USB cable with apple AC block. And yes, these will all fit easily in my cargo shorts in the summer time!

@icebike -- the censor is default plugin. It's either ridiculous or hilarious. I keep meaning to go in and edit it... then forget. :(
