SCOTTEVEST Saves the Day at #CES!

I'm loaded up and ready to go to the first day of CES. CES is a powerhouse of a conference so I wanted to make sure I was prepared for everything. Here is a list of everything I needed to bring:

  • My iPhone
  • My iPad
  • My MacBook Pro
  • A video camera
  • Charger for my iPhone
  • Charger for my iPad
  • Charger for my MacBook Pro
  • Charger for the video camera
  • Earphones
  • Tripod
  • External mic for the camera
  • Business cards
  • Pens
  • Conference badge
  • Breath freshener
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Pain pills for headaches
  • Sensible shoes
  • Pain pills for feet in sensible shoes

And most important... A SCOTTEVEST. This has turned out to be the most important accessory I've got. The vest is amazing. With all its pockets, nooks, and crannies, I was able to put 16 of the above items into it. And another piece of magic is that no one would ever know I was loaded down with all this stuff... including my iPad. This is the first time I ever feel in love with an article of clothing.

I'm surprised at the amount of tech tools needed to cover CES, but some devices just make a job easier than others. I'm not sure how many of the items will make it back to the conference tomorrow, but one thing I know for sure... the pills are going back.
