The Davenport vest is an indispensible travel item designed to store just about everything you could possibly want without having to carry a pack.
Starting with the outer fabric, it lies in Craghoppers ‘Nosilife’ range, meaning it features an anti-insect treatment to repel most biting bugs for the lifetime of the fabric. This also doubles up as UV protection and will shield you against the suns harmful rays (UPF 50+). A mesh lining is then added to the inner of the jacket to move moisture away from your skin, cooling you down in hot climates.
Pockets are something this vest is definitely not short of! You get a massive 20 pockets, all designed to act as your portable storage device without needing a backpack. Altogether you are given 10 zipped pockets for security, 2 zipped welted pockets, 2 up and over pockets, 2 zipped chest pockets, 6 zipped inside pockets, 2 mesh pockets, one inbuilt drybag pocket to keep all your tech dry, one passport pocket with an RFID blocking signal to block identity and digital theft, 1 touch screen phone pocket and 2 pen pockets. You’re even given a small wipe at the bottom of the vest for your sunglasses to save them the indignity of being wiped with a dirty t-shirt. You may think that adding a backpack sized load to your vest will look like you’ve just had a rummage around the shops with no cash, but the whole layout of the Davenport Vest means you get no bulky bulges and no discomfort. An internal rubberised headphones exit keeps the cable in place and allows you to tuck them back inside the vest once you’re finished with them without needing to unplug from your phone.
