I’m a SeV fiend. I wear SeV shirts when I travel because it wicks away sweat and nastiness and they can be washed in a hotel sink without much trouble. I also wore an SeV jacket and pullover last winter and I’m glad to announce that they have a new version, the Evolution, coming out in October. You can pre-order it now for $120 and if you like gadgets, you might want to take a look.
Their Tactical 4.0 was one of my favorite jackets. As you can see here, it doesn’t make you look like much of a dork and here are absolutely huge inside pockets that I have used to keep books, magazines, and even a laptop or two. There are zips up and down the jacket and the outer shell is easy to clean and quite nice.
Well, the Evolution, which I just got today, is a significant improvement even over the 4.0. It is much softer with lots of nice fleece inside and a softer, less glossy shell. It has all of the same pockets but Scott’s team has made it easier to route your wires and hide your gear thanks to little tabs that hang off of most of the pockets. It’s a bit hot to model it for you all right now, but I definitely recommend it if you’re looking to upgrade you coat this winter. I rarely rave about products, but I’ve been very happy with SeV over the years.
