SCOTTeVEST Announces Two New Versions: Sport Lite and Special Edition

Chicago - November, 2002 - SCOTTeVEST LLC introduces a new addition to the SCOTTeVEST product line, the SCOTTeVEST Sport Lite. Just in time for spring, the Sport Lite incorporates the patent-pending Technology Enabled Clothing (TEC) system and costs less than $100. The SCOTTeVEST integrates aspects of technology, apparel and recreational gear to allow people to discreetly hold, conceal, and connect several electronic devices including cell phones, GPS units, PDAs (personal digital assistant) and CD/MP3 players without today's mobility challenges.

"Athletes and recreational enthusiasts are challenged when it comes to staying active, while being weighed down by their communication devices, GPS units and even hydration systems," said Scott Jordan, CEO and founder of TEC. "The Sport Lite has been created in response to these challenges as a comfortable, lighter-weight and affordable solution. Nowadays, most runners and other athletes typically carry MP3/CD players as well as their cellphones. The patent-pending TEC system enables athletes to focus on their sport of choice without worrying about wires getting in the way. We also used Coolmax® mesh in the interior for added comfort."

Although the Sport Lite is a lower-cost alternative, it still features most of the recent product enhancements introduced in our Version 2.5, released earlier this year. With 16 ergonomically designed pockets, the Sport Lite version features a simplified version of the patent pending Personal Area Network (PAN), a Coolmax® mesh interior to keep you dry, easy access to the back area from the front through the side seams, a reflective safety strip, waist-adjustment, two-way front zipper, key holder, removable sleeves, back pocket to allow for Camelbak® water hydration systems, and earbud holders for easy access to hands-free mobile phone use.

"The SCOTTeVEST is a perfect combination of function and form," commented Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA) President, Leesa Weichert. "It combines the ability to carry all of the things I need on a long run without the items bouncing around in my pockets, along with the perfect apparel design and construction; no cotton to absorb moisture, wind resistant for cold weather running, and a washable, durable fabric."

The Sport Lite is made from rip stop nylon for active lifestyles due to its durability, lighter weight and water- and wind-resistance. The eVEST not only helps men and women manage and carry a multitude of gadgets and gizmos, but offers them a "sporty" new look for 2003. The Sport Lite will be available in a gun metal gray for $99.99, but is currently being pre-sold for $89.99 until they arrive in early December.

Version 2.5-SSE- Sport Special Edition Now Also Available

Another addition to the SCOTTeVEST Line, the Version 2.5-SSE-Sport Special Edition will also feature recent product enhancements made to the 2.5 Version, but also has limited edition features such as a mesh interior, rip-stop nylon material, and hook and loop fastener cuffs. It is available in a charcoal gray rip-stop material. The Special Edition will cost $139.99, but is currently being pre-sold for $89.99 until they arrive in early December. Only 600 units will be available.
