The summer weight FlyQ Lite is a highly intelligent jacket with an advanced Travel Pocket System that will help you breeze through airport security. It features pockets for gadgets with clear panels that are compatible with touch screens, a microfleece-lined glasses pocket, a key clip, and a pocket specifically for a water bottle just to name a few. It will also protect you and your belongings from the elements thanks to a DWR finish and coated ripstop fabric.
SO I bought this jacket at the Orvis store in Destin, Florida when I failed to pack a jacket. The woman offered me a $25 coupon and I couldn’t say no!
While this jacket is not super practical for my life in cold Wyoming as it is ultra light, it is definitely awesome for travelling.
I had a pocket for my chap stick, a pocket for my sunglasses, a pocket for my rental car keys, a pocket for my boarding pass, a pocket for my ID and credit cards, a pocket for my camera, a pocket for my phone, a pocket for my travel towel (because beaches), a pocket for my sunscreen.
Essentially it completely eliminated the need for me to carry a purse whatsoever during the trip.
And with it being ultra light and intelligently pocketed, things that are bulky (camera, sunglasses) are tucked to the under/side of the chest so that they don’t look like they are even there.
The jacket is definitely a convenience splurge, but it felt nice to know I could go into a crowd and not get pickpocketed or, more likely, forget something in the hotel room. And it was light enough that I could wear it in near tropical weather while it rained.
Definitely give these a look! Now I wish all my jackets had carefully crafted inside pockets so I could eliminate my purse forever.
