Skift Take

Travel vests can sure cut down on your packing list, and for a short trip you may be able to dodge the checked bag fees.

Play it close to the vest.

That’s the motto of travelers who like to wear their valuables on the inside of a travel vest, today’s equivalent of sewing jewels into the seam of your skirt.

The landmark Scottevest, with a smooth-looking exterior concealing nearly two dozen interior storage pockets, has been widely copied in style; these vests are suitable for cooler weather. For hot destinations, travel vests continue to get lighter and lighter, such as the Magellan’s travel vest, which weighs 6 ounces and has eight pockets.
