Scottevest Travel Vest & The No Baggage Challenge

By | Permalink | 1 comment | August 24th, 2010

Travel writer extraordinaire Rolf Potts set out on August 21, 2010 for a round-the-world journey without carrying a single piece of luggage.  Taking the ultra-light trend to the extremes, Potts will explore 12 countries on five continents over the next 6 weeks without even a daypack or money belt.  The few items he does bring with him on this No-Baggage Challenge will be tucked away into his pants or vest pockets.

Decked out in Scottevest (SeV) apparel, Potts will attempt to make it around the world with only two t-shirts, one long sleeve, a jacket, and a pair of cargo pants.  SeV travel wear is super lightweight and wrinkle-free with multiple pockets to hold all your travel accessories and gear.

With 14 pockets in the SeV Ultimate Cargo Pants and 18 pockets in the SeV Tropical Jacket/Vest, Potts should have enough places to stash his travel essentials like his camera, toothbrush, passport, and sunscreen.  The SeV Performance T-shirt will keep him dry and comfy as he cruises through Egypt and South Africa and his SeV Performance Pullover Q-Zip for extra warmth in New Zealand and Australia.

    This is truly a unique and amusing challenge! Too often, travelers pack for every occasion, extra shoes, coats, sweatshirts and non-essential items which add not only pounds to their luggage, but with airline fees, can lead to 100’s of dollars in unnecessary items. If this isn’t a wake up call for all those who spent the extra $75.00 for the non-essentials, I don’t know what is!
