Aspen Times Weekly: 24-Pocket Sportsman Vest

I’ve misplaced my knife. It’s a cool day, and on a hike I need a blade but cannot locate the jackknife stashed somewhere inside my vest.

With two-dozen pockets, tabs, snaps, zippers, and fold-down “visibility strips,” the Sportsman Vest is one complex piece of clothing.

It’s not difficult to misplace small items among the sea of gear and gadgets that can be stashed inside. Indeed, the clothing, made by SCOTTeVEST Inc., comes with an instructional sheet, its diagram printed on a square of tethered cloth that doubles as a glasses wipe.

Combine a backpack with a piece of apparel and you get something like the SeV Sportsman Vest. Made for hunting, fishing, and general outdoors use, it swallows up accouterments like cameras, knives, bird calls, binoculars, pens, battery packs, maps, a compass, smartphones, snacks, and even a hydration bladder, which can be stashed in back.

New to market, the vest costs $175.
