Yes! I Can Fit My Apple iPad In My Pocket!

Who says you can’t fit the new Apple iPad into a pocket? As you can see the above photo and below video, the iPad fits in the pocket of my Scottevest just fine. And the amazing thing is that’s not even the biggest pocket! The Travel Vest features 22 pockets, which should be more than enough for even the geekiest of gadget geeks.

The coolest feature of the Scottevest has to be the patented Weight Management System and NoBulge system. Normally, when you add a 1.5lb device the size of an iPad into one side of a vest, it will sag on that side. However, the Travel Vest remains perfectly level with no hint that you’re packing an iPad inside your jacket.

iPad and Scottevest

All of the jackets and vests that Scottevest sells are iPad compatible (as long as you order size M and above). The Travel Vest is available in three colors and with 22 pockets, it can double as a carry on bag at the airport. The Travel Vest sells for $100 and comes with a 30 days money back guarantee. If you have an Apple iPad, the Scottevest is a must have accessory. Look for it at this week’s Dot Com Pho.

  1. This is crazy John! Leave it to you to discover something like that!

    1. hahahaha, leave it to John to wear a Scottevest 😛

      this almost seems like a review post…

      1. Read his disclaimer and privacy policy to know more … that one is interesting.

    The vest is kinda pricey at $100, but that auto-leveling thing I did not know about. How does that work? Without it, the ScottEVest is just a vest with a bunch of pockets.

    1. Gary says:

      I purchased a Scottevest 6-7 years ago, one of the original jackets. One of the best jackets for travel, hands down.

      They’re definitely not cheap but they offer way more features compared to other jackets. That jacket above for $100 only is worth every penny.

      I don’t know how the weight management thing works but it works very well. No one can tell I’m packing an iPad in my vest.

      1. Are they bullet proof? 😉

        1. John Chow says:

          Would be cool if it was, but no, it’s not.

          1. Darn! Looks like you have to wear a bullet proof vest then too. Oh well.

          2. Nah no one’s out to get him 😛

  3. That`s a great looking vest! It would look cool wearing it without the iPad.

    1. Yes and there is no sign of ipad … no edge or similar kind of look.

  4. Ivan Walsh says:

    the ipad is ok but the view behind you is terrific!

    1. Kemp Edmonds says:

      That’s The view from John’s Dot Com home in West Vancouver. That small tree filled island over John’s left shoulder (viewer’s right side) is Stanley Park. You should come visit Vancouver it’s amazing.

      1. Ivan Walsh says:

        Some good friends left Ireland last year for Toronto and are real happy there. Safe, clean and nice school. Sounds great.

        1. Vancouver is one of the best and beautiful city of world.

    Hi John,

    The vest is cool and I’m amazed that the weight is indeed balanced. 1.5 pounds and it stays straight. Did you have to wait in line to get your iPad?

    I wear vests especially in the summer precisely because of the pockets but they tend to slide to whichever side is heavier.

    You could have mentioned what the $100 vest is made of. I hope it’s not synthetic because that wouldn’t work in warm weather.

    As for the iPad it is bigger than I expected. I hope you’ll post about what you like about it and what it can do.


    1. John Chow says:

      The iPad was shipped to me from a friend in the US. I never had to line up for it. The vest is made from a breathable Teflon-treated Cotton/Nylon blend and works well in warm and hot weather.

      1. Is it water proof as well ?

        1. Now that would be great, especially when you carry a lot of electronic gadgets around with you! SY

  6. Tony says:

    That is one expensive vest. lol

    1. And for those people who have ipad, iphone and other stuff.

      I hope apple will come with a iVest as well.

  7. Hey John…I found some Jeans that would fit an iPad too!!


  8. d3so says:

    Nice find! It’s fashion for gadget-geeks.
    Too bad summer is approaching; there’s a need to find other convenient ways to pack the ipad.

  9. Tommy Glenn says:

    It’s hilarious how the trendy crowd is walking around with their iPad like it’s a glorified iPhone or something. I just got back from the bar and some guy was sitting there with his iPad out and all the girls were like coool what’s that.. I’m thinking to myself.. “Have these people been under a rock the last 3 months or what?” Jeez… I wonder if I can come up with my own tech product here and be successful.. how about the iRock by Pear.. 🙂

  10. one sexy marketer 🙂 !!!

  11. HowToVanish says:

    I hope you have an affiliate code or something; I just bought two. They look like an awesome product. Thanks!

    1. John Chow says:

      Unfortunately, Scottevest doesn’t have an affiliate program. 🙁

  12. Yasagun says:

    That is so cool John… 🙂

  13. Scott says:

    This would be a good idea for schools, but the U.S would probably ban them b/c they would say you could put weapons in them.

  14. John this by chance wouldn’t be an example of a paid post where you show people how you make money by posting reviews of this vest and give them some juicy links to their site now could it? 🙂

    1. John Chow says:

      No, this is an example of me liking a product and blogging about. Scottevest has no affiliate program and didn’t pay for this post. All sponsored posts are on this blog are marked as such.

  15. Good looking vest and iPad too. Enjoy your new iPad.

    1. I think we saw this vest in pho as well … where Stephen show this.

  16. Charles says:

    Wow I didn’t think it was able to fit in your pocket. Nice vest.

  17. Nice vest I’m sure a they’ve got quite a boost in sales from this blog post 😛

  18. John, have you seen Loren Feldman’s review of Scottevest products? LOL

  19. backpacks says:

    22 pockets?!? Maybe you’ll be able to ditch your laptop travel bag, and just go with the vest from now on?

    1. In that case you will have problem in sleeping with your vest

  20. Interesting vest, thanks for sharing it with me

  21. not in my pocket 😛 that is a huge pocket 😀
