My girlfriend Mickey and her husband Bob swear by these vests. The vest ergonomically and evenly distributes the contents of your daypack across your upper body so it doesn’t feel bulky or heavy. It has a dedicated zippered pouched for your documents, your phone, your iPad, your money and credit cards (protected with RFID to prevent thieves skimming your card info!). You can connect your devices with the interior channels to eliminate bulky cords. There’s a chamois pocket for your glasses.
You can zip through security at the airport because you simply place your fulled zippered and secure vest in a bin and waltz through the scanner!
