Has anyone ever used the travel vest from magellan or any other vendor? I just ordered it as it seemed like a better way to keep valuable son me than my waist or bra pouch.
It has 5 outside pockets and 3 inside pockets. I can keep my cell phone, pda, digitital camera in the outside pockets, and my passport, S&S card and others id's in the inside pockets. All pockets close with velro.
It may work fine but I go for the cargo shorts. In the Caribbean they are a lot cooler. Even if the vest has a mesh lining it is just more covering to heat you up. I hope you went with the lighter color.
It may be better for "traveling" rather than a shore excursion.

Yes, I got the lighter color and I will only be wearing it over a camisole anyway. I will see how it works only wearing that vest when I'm in southern Florida over Thanksgiving, then I'll get a feel for how it would work in Key West and Cozumel. If I like it enough, I may wear it over my cami's for the whole cruise, on AND off the ship! Also, I don't "have" to zipper/button it up so it may not feel that much warmer wearing it.
Also, I like the idea of cargo shorts like that, but feel it would be easier to pick my shorts/pants pockets than the insides of a vest I'm wearing.
