An Exclusive Look at the SCOTTEVEST Fall 2010 Men’s Line; Much Ado About Something

I know that you all have been chomping at the bit to get more info on the upcoming SCOTTEVEST Men’s Fall coats, and guess what? In July I received a box full of them! I only had a few days to check them out and try them on, but that was long enough to know that this will not only be a very good fall season for women who have been waiting for their new SeV styles, it will be a very good SeV season for men as well.

The designs that I received were just about finalized, but there is a chance there might be a few minor changes before their release. These products are not yet even on the SCOTTEVEST site and they can’t be pre-ordered, but Scott will be formally announcing them on his site sometime next week and they will be available soon after. I will update this post with the release dates and proper web links as soon as I have them, and we will have full reviews of each product after they have been released.

But for now … enjoy this sneak peek!

Sport Coat

This is the jacket that I know many men have been clamoring for, and with good reason! There are times when a casual jacket just isn’t going to cut it, when you need something that will look good with a pair of khakis and a bright tie … and here it is, your new Sport Coat. With many of the same pathways you have come to expect in all SCOTTEVEST TEC enabled garments, the Sport Coat never lets on that the wearer is wired for sound or toting their electronic arsenal. Instead observers will only see a guy wearing a nicely tailored jacket; even the interior is refined! There are no see through windows or obvious gadget slots, yet this jacket still manages to conceal 24 pockets! A Teflon coating helps the jacket resist spills and stains, and you can choose between black and dark gray.

The Sport Coat will retail for $200.

Carry On Coat

The Carry On is the coat which seemed to take the internet by storm when photos were first released! 33 Pockets make this garment a carry-on substitute, hence the name. Whether you’ll ever want to fill every one of those pockets will be up to you, but the good news is that you do not have to! The jacket is cut to look good whether you are simply stowing your phone and wallet or if you need to carry much more. The cool thing is that if you are traveling there is no overnight bag to wheel through the airport, and when it is time to check in, you can simply send the coat — with pockets stuffed — through the X-Ray.

The coat is composed of waterproof, breathable Teflon-treated fabric; it has a storm collar with button tab and magnetic stay, magnetic storm-flap and magnetic pocket closures to keep the elements out and keep you dry. If you get splashed with muddy water while wearing it, the Carry On coat can be machine washed.

The Carry On Coat will retail for $225.

OutBack

Although the OutBack looks like a traditional “barn coat”, this jacket is a sophisticated garment with a secret — 20 pockets including two designed for handgun “concealed carry”, whether it be by an incognito Secret Service Agent, a Police Department Detective trying to keep warm, or a rancher who carries a pistol when checking their livestock. I don’t think I have seen pockets like these before; they are essentially generously sized zippered openings on each side that go from the exterior of the coat all the way through to the holster sitting on the wearer’s hip. There are even hook & loop patches and elastic loops for tucking ammunition magazines inside the handwarmer pockets.

This machine-washable jacket isn’t waterproof, but it does have a Teflon-coated dark olive exterior and fabulous interior quilting (love it!) which will help keep the wearer warm, even when they have hours left on a winter day’s duty.

The OutBack will retail for $150.

Expedition

I have always worn SeV clothing that wasn’t specifically designed for women —  for years because women’s garments weren’t available, and later because there were just certain styles that I liked. Along with last year’s Soft Shell (one of my all-time favorites), the Expedition ranks as one of my favorite SCOTTEVESTs ever. Why? Well one of the reasons is the interior drawstring; suddenly a boxy men’s jacket has a little bit of shape, and even though the sample I was sent is a large and I need a medium, I think it looks pretty good on me.

The Expedition is available in two colors, charcoal and safari (a khaki green color). The coat’s exterior is waterproof, and “all of the critical seams have been sealed.” Perhaps most noticeable is that unlike the majority of SeV garments which seek to hide how they are loaded with pockets, the Expedition doesn’t even bother. It has pockets everywhere, in fact it revels in its plethora of pockets!

Take a look at this jacket; there are 37 pockets — the most ever on a single SCOTTEVEST garment – and because of those pockets this garment looks like the jacket you would want on a long winter hike or nippy fall excursion. Once again, I must remind you that just because you could fill every one of the pockets, it doesn’t mean you have to, or that you even should! 😉

The Expedition will retail for $200.

Revolution

If you need a warm waterproof three-season jacket, then the Revolution is worth checking out. 26 pockets are tucked into this sleek waterproof jacket with its smooth interior lining. The hood is removable, and true to the original SeV line, the sleeves unzip and the jacket becomes a vest!

I love the slightly longer rear; not only do I think it more flattering for every body type (male or female), I like that it helps cover the top of your pants when bending over. It’s the little things, right? 😉

The Revolution will retail for $175.

Revolution Plus

So you like the Revolution, but it’s not quite warm enough for your part of the world? No problem! You’ll just need the Revolution Plus.

What does the “Plus” consist of? To start, the interior is not slick, it is lined with the lovely quilting found in the OutBack and Women’s Go2 Jackets. It’s billed as the “warmest SeV ever,” and with its waterproof construction with sealed critical seams, it might just get you through your next wet winter … and it is available in any color you’s like, as long as that color is black. My only quibble with the samples I was sent was that the rear on the Plus wasn’t longer than the front, like it is on the original Revolution. That’s just personal preference, though.

The Revolution Plus will retail for $200.

And that wraps up my preview! Did you see something you like? Keep an eye out for the full reviews on each of these jackets; we’ll get them up as soon as the new fall SCOTTEVEST jackets start coming in.

    All great! My favorits are the Outback (lovely for warding off the snow in Ohio), the Expedition because it just plain looks cool and the Revolution Plus because it will likely be warm!

  4. mcsouth says:

    The Revolution definitely appears to be one I’ve been looking for – although I’m curious about the lining / amount of insulation. Is this strictly a lined jacket or a lightly insulated lined jacket?

    Have you considered adding inner zippers that would allow the Fleece 5.0 to be zipped in, like a lot of these modular parka systems that are popular recently? (I have a couple, including an Eddie Bauer version, but definitely not enough pockets in it!)

    Even without the zip in option, how realistic would it be for me to consider buying a large Revolution to wear over my medium Fleece 5.0 when it’s cold, or on its own (without being too loose/baggy) when its just wet?

    Looks like some great additions and the Revolution is almost exactly what I’ve been looking for. Any chance we’ll see a version of it with the athletic cut the Soft Shell currently has? Thanks!
