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!
