The SCOTTeVEST Hoodie: Cotton or Microfleece?

August 16, 2017 | by Scott

Ever heard of the SCOTTeVEST hoodie? If not, let me explain. Basically, it was invented by a man called Scott Jordan. Scott found that he was always getting stressed trying to fit all his gadgets and essentials in his pockets. They left him with bulges that were both uncomfortable to carry, what with all the weight being in one place, and bad to look at, as in visually unappealing, disrupting the flow of the outfit, making him look bad.

His solution? A hoodie that has lots of hidden compartments inside, where wearers can keep all their gadgets.

So now you know what the SCOTTeVEST hoodies is, and, if you’re clever, you’re thinking about buying one. Now you just have to decide whether to buy it in cotton or microfleece. So, without much further ado, let’s get started.

We’ll begin by looking at the cotton version.

The SCOTTeVEST Hoodie Cotton

The SCOTTeVEST Hoodie Cotton

Pros

  • The Price is $95. It’s a few bucks less than the microfleece version.
  • It comes in a variety of colors like black, cobalt, ash, or maroon.

Cons

  • Cotton is a great fabric for summer, but it won’t keep you as warm during colder months.

The SCOTTeVEST Hoodie Microfleece

Pros

  • The material is heavier since microfleece is a soft, napped, synthetic wool material often made from polyester, so it will keep you warmer.

Cons

  • This is a possible con for some, but it’s more of a jacket than a hoodie. The cotton version might be best for you if you want the hoodie look and feel.
  • The hoodie is about $100, so it might be out of budget if you wanted something under $100 bucks.
  • It only comes in black.

Both the cotton and microfleece hoodies have twenty-one pockets, thumbholes, “do not disturb” flaps that come down from the hood, and seven sizes. Basically, there’s little to separate them. The only differences are price, color choices, and, of course, the material.

You might decide that cotton sounds better because the fabric is more breathable and comfortable or you might think that it’s worth paying five dollars more to get a material a little bit more durable and a little bit more substantial. If you opt for the microfleece, however, you’ll only get to choose from one color option: black.

Personally, I think I’d pick the cotton. The unique selling point of the SCOTTeVEST is the number of pockets, and, seeing as they both have the same number of pockets, it seems logical to go for the cheaper of the two. But ultimately, it’s up to you.
