Carry All Your Items in One Place with Vestopia (Giveaway)

My children and I love going on hikes and nature walks.  Normally, I have to carry a bag filled with paper, pens, crayons, water bottles, cell phone, etc.  Well, you know how it is.  When you’re a Mom, you need everything AND the kitchen sink.  However, my new Vestopia Mom’s Utility Vest has given me freedom to reduce the bulky bag and carry everything I need….in one easy to organize location – my VEST!

This vest has truly given me the ability to have what I need,when I need it no matter where I am.  In the Fall and Spring, my children and I love taking nature walks.  While on our walks, we enjoy gathering facts and drawing, painting or using pastels to capture the changing of the trees or flowers in bloom.

Recently, we took a quick walk into our back yard.  Instead of throwing everything in a bag, I put all of our supplies in my vest.  The supplies included:  pastels, crayons, twistables, erasable colored pencils, clip boards, paper, and my cell phone (of course).

I found the vest very comfortable and noticed that without the clipboards in the back pocket, I could easily zip it.  When they were in the back pocket, I could not zip it.  However, I could easily use the latch to hold the vest on and keep it from falling off.

Overall, the vest is light and very comfortable.  Honestly, I enjoy wearing it around the house.  I keep my phone on airplane mode (thanks for the sweet reminder for safety Vestopia included with the vest), my favorite pens/pencils and any other items I may need throughout the day (like tissues for runny noses, sun glasses for quick trips outside and well, just anything I grab.)  The vest can handle it all!  There are five pockets on the front (great for your phones, pens, glasses, pacifiers, bottles, water bottles) three on the back (great for clip boards, paper, diapers, wipes, changing pad) and there are two on the inside of the jacket on both sides for a total of four (great for hiding your cash, debit card, drivers license, or even your children’s birth certificates if you are on vacation and need to fly).

I have to say, I wish I had this when my children were little.  It would have saved me from needing to carry a diaper bag everywhere we went.   However, now that they are older, I can leave my purse at home (which is great, since I recently went to the park with a friend and her purse was stolen out of the car) and just grab my vest.  It makes a great hiking vest, diaper bag and even fashion vest for the active Mom.

My kids love my vest and a friend recently noted that he wanted one for his wife (and children) for their hunting expeditions.

Truly, this is a multi-purpose vest.  It is quite comfortable and I love mine!

  1. Karen Medlin says

    Great idea, I would use it for out scouting camp outs.. to carry a few first aid items, compass, cell phone, pencil and paper, pocket knife etc

  2. benita says

    There’s so much a woman needs to carry. This vest would help carrying stuff and not needing to carry a bag.


  3. sandra says

    I do not carry a handbag, i usually carry whatever ZI need in my pant pockets, this would make such a change then having to keep pulling my pants up all the time. I want to win it

  6. Shari says

    This would be great especially when going shopping. Don’t like carrying all sorts of bags which become annoying when trying to shop.

  7. christine jessamine says

    this would help me alot, I can’t always fit everything in my pockets when traveling, this looks like fun

  8. Melissa P. says

    There are places that I like to go with my family and I hate to carry a bag or purse. This would be perfect to hold all the items I need for the zoo, park, hiking, camping, etc.

  9. corina parsons says

    Great Giveaway! This would be great for camping and fishing trips, or even just a day outdoors. Going anywhere with the kids they always want me to hold/carry all their stuff so this would definatly make that easier! Also would be a great gift for an outdoorsman.

  10. says

    This is such a neat idea! I could see myself using this a lot, for day trips out or any number of things. I have 2 kids and this would be quite handy! :)

  11. Brittany says

    I might wear this everyday, just getting everything in the car and back out again I could fill this. Thanks for the giveaway.

  12. Drina M. says

    We love going on hikes during the evening everyday and when we camp this would be a big help to carry some of the extra belongings that comes with having a young child.

  14. diane says

    thanks for this wonderful giveaway. When I walk with my baby there is always something needed. This is great for that purpose.

  15. Jackie Hendrick says

    The vest would be great for small tools, crayons,etc. I can see myself over- loading it. It can be used in many situations.

  17. Sylvie W says

    My handbag and I serve as the backhorse when away from home. I hold the kleenex, aspirin, gum, candy, sunglasses, extra this, extra that, etc . . . My poor shoulder is tired. I can happily be the backhorse with this vest. It distributes the weight of my load and leaves my hands blessedly free. Ahhhhhhh.

  18. Mona Evanochko says

    OH, WoW! So happy so one came up with this idea for my aching back. I carry a backpack everywhere with my Grand Children, but this would be so much better for when I have to carry them and the backpack and a purse… a Grandmothers dream gift.

  19. Elaine Bolduc says

    well now this would be great on our many walks in the woods with the grandchildren who never have the strength to carry their own things lol.

  20. Kel H says

    This looks great for those trips wear having a purse just gets in the way but you still need all your stuff plus stuff for the kids — trips to the zoo, museums etc….

  21. Sharon says

    My family and I go Geochaching and this would be perfect to hold everything! The Dad can carry the baby back pack and i can carry everything else!!

  22. Laurie Bolduc-Cadieux says

    I would love this…. We go on alot of walks, camping, fishing etc.. I don’t like carrying a purse or bag so this would make a great option… and stylish too :)

  23. Tammy J. says

    I am an artist, and this would be very handy for keeping a lot of my supplies right at hand whether I’m inside or outside.

  24. Dani K says

    This would be great to evenly distribute the weight of all of the various different things I take with me on long walks.

  25. Jill L says

    Oh this would be so awesome when we are camping. I become the bearer of so many trinkets from the kids and I have my own stuff to be carrying.

  26. Robyn L says

    it would help because I could carry snacks, kleenex, cell phone, wipes
    etc. or
    I could carry garden gloves, garden tools, cell phone, wipes when out

  27. Audrey griffis says

    anyone who has kids woudl tell you you can never have to many pockets- kids just love little things this woeuld be awsome on our hikes

  28. says

    This is such a neat idea! We love to go camping, hiking and fishing and this would be a great thing for me to keep the kids’ stuff close without lugging around a bunch of bags.

  29. Lee-Ann Sleegers says

    At least I’ll know what pocket I put things in instead of with my purse where things get thrown in willynilly and I may or may not have what I need.

  30. Emily Schauer says

    This is AWESOME!!!with 2 young children I never have enough pockets and my hands are always full…this would be great! I would probably use it for when I’m cleaning as well….grab and stow from room to room….

  31. Kerry Leenhouts says

    This would be helpful when shopping or going to farmer’s markets. I always end up carrying way too much stuff!

  32. Shirley Hicks says

    This would be great to use on vacations and such..we usually take vacations to diamond mines,emerald mines or the gold mines in i could use this when carrying a purse is not optional………and NO..we havent struck it

  33. Lorena Keech says

    I walk my dogs several times a day, this would be so handy to carry their water and treats, my water and phone. Cool idea!

  34. Marcus says

    I wonder if this vest is strong enough to put lead weights in some of the pockets. Why? Because this would be a different way to add weight where chin-ups are part of the exercise regimen.

  35. Melanie Montgomery says

    Johnny, my husband, is taking me camping for the first time this year, I think the vest will surprise him and let him know I’m prepared forit.

  36. susan smoaks says

    the Vestopia Vest would help me keep my hands free so i can keep up with everyone else and still have everything that i need with me, it would really come in handy!

  37. Jennifer Peaslee says

    The Vestopia vest wouldn’t help me, but it would help my sister in law, to help her carry all the miscellaneous kid stuff she always has! jenniferpeaslee at gmail dot com

  38. Laurie Emerson says

    I love this vest. I love the idea of using it instead of a diaper bag as it would be so much more convenient.

  39. cassandra says

    This would be great to store countless things you would normally throw in a bag and you get to go purse free for the day. awesome :)

  40. says

    Wow. Thank you for this post. For the past years I have been in love with Hiking, this vest will surely be helpful to all of the hikers.It looks convenient, I didn’t know there is a product like this. Thank you for the info! :)
