17-Pocket Windbreaker

While you probably won’t take it running, camping or use it for anything active, the ScotteVest Pack Windbreaker is a gadget guru’s dream. What it lacks in cutting-edge outer layer technology, it makes up for in pockets and electronic-stashing capability.

The Windbreaker, made from water- and wind-resistant breathable nylon, has 17 pockets to stash and organize everything from PDAs and cell phones to mp3 players and digital cameras.

The no-bulge pockets keep everything hidden from view, and the jacket’s “weight management system” uses extra fabric in the shoulders to help support the weight of your gadgets.

The company’s “clear touch pockets” let you see your phone or mp3 player display and control it without removing it from your pocket. Plus, with an earbud pocket, eyeglass chamois, key holder, pen pockets and more, you’ll be all set to be a tourist without attracting too much attention.

The ScotteVest Pack Windbreaker, which comes in blue, gray or olive, is currently available for $75. www.scottevest.com
