During our trip around Africa, the use of Scottevests was essential to allowing us to stick to carry-on bags only. It wasn’t the size of the bags, it was the weight. Most birders have lots of heavy camera gear and bird field guides. At several airports, they weighed our carry-ons and we would have been forced to check some bags if we didn’t have the Scottevests to stuff the heavy stuff into! Here’s their latest product – the Featherweight Vest! Don’t forget to check out the daily sale tab, they have a different item on sale each day!
