Which Scottevest Women's Jacket to Buy?

Jump to last reply

Love the idea of having a jacket with lots of pockets. My current jacket doesn't have enough. We're heading to Italy in October and am debating between getting the Scottevest Essential Travel Jacket (collared, zip off sleeves) vs the Go-2 Jacket (stand-up collar, zip off hood). Am not going to use a purse.

1. How heavy is the Go-2? I usually bring a fleece jacket to wear under a heavier jacket to have options.
2. Is either flexible enough to tie the jacket around your waist (I'm rather petite)? I do this alot with current jackets. It doesn't work to have all your valuables in your jacket pockets if you get too hot, take it off and lose track of it!
3. How rain-resistant are they?
4. Do they have outside front pockets? From the reviews on the site, I wasn't sure. This would be critical in my book.
5. Is this the only jacket you would bring (not counting fleece)? I would wear it on the plane.
6. Are they easy to stuff into a lightweight day pack if needed? My current REI jacket goes into its own stuff sack so is warm and lightweight..just not enough pockets.

Lots of questions...but one is $120 and the other $175 so it would be a travel investment for the future.

Thanks for anything you can tell me!
