Yes! Unless your promo code was marked as FINAL SALE, your order is eligible for a return or exchange.
Why can't I return or exchange outlet items?
We want to give you the best possible price on our outlet items. By marking outlet items as final sale, we can eliminate any extra costs and pass the savings onto you.
I received my item, but it is defective. What can I do?
We are truly sorry to hear that you found a problem with your SCOTTeVEST garment. We take a lot of pride in what we do, so it pains us to hear that everything is not perfect. We stand behind the quality of our products, but sometimes mistakes happen. When they do, we are happy to replace your defective item within two years of the purchase date.

How long does a return/exchange take?
Once we receive the returned item(s), it takes 1-2 business days to process the exchange or refund. Once a refund is processed, it may take 2-7 business days to be reflected in your account. If you requested an exchange, we ship any replacement items with ground shipping (unless you specify a different method), which can take 1-3 business days for delivery.
Can I return more than one order at the same time?
Yes! You will need an RMA # for each order you are returning or exchanging, but you can ship the returns and exchanges to our warehouse in the same package.

We have a two-year defective warranty period, which covers issues such as defective zippers, missed stitches and other defects. We offer defective garment replacement as well as reimbursement for repairs (we do not offer in-house repairs). This warranty does not cover accessories or general wear and tear (for example, rips caused by catching your SCOTTeVEST garment on something sharp).

Of course! We've designed each product to comfortably hold your electronic gadgets and any other items you may need to carry.
- What devices fit into my pockets?
What is the PAN system? How do I wire the PAN system in my SCOTTeVEST?
Our patented Personal Area Network (PAN) system provides a network of hidden conduits to connect wires to devices while they are in your pockets. All SCOTTeVEST products (including our pants) have some form of the PAN. Our jackets, pullovers, shirts, hoodies and even our hats have special elastic loops to keep your earbuds within easy reach. Do you need help wiring your SCOTTeVEST? Visit our Customer Service YouTube page for easy-to-follow wiring tutorials or contact us at 866-909-8378 between 8:00am - 5:00pm MT and we will be happy to walk you through how to wire the PAN on your SCOTTeVEST.
What materials do you use in your products?
We use a variety of different materials to make our products. We carefully select each material to ensure that they are the best choices for the style of garment. You can find the fabric content on each product page, underneath the product photo.
Where are SCOTTeVEST products made?
We have been using the same factories since the beginning of SCOTTeVEST and are confident in the quality of their work. Our products are made primarily in China so that we can get the high quality you expect while still providing you with the most competitive prices.
What is a ClearTouch pocket? How can I clean it?
A ClearTouch pocket is made from material specifically designed to let you use your touchscreen device without removing it from your pocket. To clean these pockets, we recommend a 10:1 warm water to white vinegar blend so it doesn't damage the material.
Do fingerprint scanners work through ClearTouch pockets?
No. In order to unlock your phone or touchscreen device with a fingerprint scanner, you will need to remove the device from the ClearTouch pocket.
What is the Weight Management System?
The Weight Management System (WMS) allows you to comfortably carry your belongings in your SCOTTeVEST products. Both the design and the fabrics used in the shoulder area create an even distribution of weight from your devices, allowing you to carry more than you could in a laptop bag. In our pants and shorts, the design allows for comfortable weight distribution and a streamlined appearance.

What do I put in my pockets?
Here at SCOTTeVEST, we have a saying “A pocket is what you make it.” That being said, we do give some guidelines. On our vests and jackets, you'll notice embroidered logos that indicate what you can put in that pocket.
How do I find the pocket map for my SCOTTeVEST?
On our website, there is an interactive pocket map for each product with examples of what can fit in your SCOTTeVEST. A pocket map is also included with every product you order, and some of our products have the pocket map printed on the eyeglass chamois.
Do you make custom sizes?
Unfortunately, we are unable to produce custom sizes or products. Since our products are so technically engineered, with each size created and sampled strenuously by our technical designer, we are unable to fill custom orders.
- Do you make products in tall sizes? What about Petite or larger sizes?
How do I care for my SCOTTeVEST?
While all SCOTTeVEST products are machine washable, some of them require a little extra care. Before you launder your SCOTTeVEST, please refer to the product page or the white care-tag for instructions. SCOTTeVEST cannot be held liable for damage caused due to improper care.
What is an infinity zipper?
It’s a zipper that never stops! This feature is currently available on our Chloe and Chloe Glow Hoodies. This zipper eliminates the need for drawstrings and can be fully zipped up to serve as an impromptu bag.
What is the No-Bulge design?
We want you to be able to load up your SCOTTeVEST and not look like the Michelin Man. All SCOTTeVEST products use a HangingPocket design to create a streamlined look so items in your pockets do not create unsightly bulges.
Is there an easy way to compare products on the website?
Yes. With all of the choices that SeV offers, we know that deciding which garment is right for you can be daunting. To help you decide, please make a Personal Shopper Appointment and we will be happy to walk you through our products one-on-one.

I have a pacemaker, should I be concerned with magnets?
Magnets (like the magnetic fields from cell phones) may potentially interfere with pacemakers and similar medical devices. Although there have been no reported issues regarding this matter, if you have a pacemaker or similar medical device and choose to wear a product with magnets, you do so at your own risk. We assume no liability for injury or death due to a possible malfunction of any medical device. Please contact your physician for additional information and specific questions relating to magnets and your pacemaker or medical device. We have created a few garments without magnets so please contact us for our current list of these magnet-free items.
Will products with magnets affect my phone, credit card or hotel key?
We have tested our magnets on both credit cards and memory cards, and we have not experienced any issues with them. However, we have had a few isolated reports of our magnetic pocket closures erasing hotel room keys with a magnetic strip, so just in case, please place your hotel room keys away from the magnets in your SCOTTeVEST.
Are SCOTTeVEST products useful for airport travel?
Amazingly! That’s the magic of SCOTTeVEST garments. Just slip off your jacket or vest, lay it on the conveyor belt beside your shoes and proceed through the metal detector. Pick up your jacket or vest on the other side and be on your way. The TSA loves SCOTTeVEST.
What product has the most pockets?
With 42 pockets each, the Q.U.E.S.T. Vest for Men and the Q.U.E.S.T. Vest for Women have more pockets than any of our other products. These garments provide so many options to hold your belongings, you will experience Pocket Nirvana!

I lost my wallet in my vest. It seems to be in the lining. How can I retrieve it?
We're sorry to hear you've lost an item in your SCOTTeVEST, but don't worry, you can get it back. It sounds as though your item has fallen into the space behind the lining that makes up the Personal Area Network. To access anything that may have gotten caught up in this pocket, just follow the instructions below:
- First, you will need to put your hand in the handwarmer pocket.
- Move your hand up the jacket until you reach the top of the lining.
- Move your hand over the dividing line to the inside of the jacket liner.
- When you move your hand down towards the bottom of your jacket, you should be able to retrieve the lost item. If you would like to watch a short video about this topic you can do so by clicking here. If you still can't locate your item, give us a call at 1-866-909-8378 and we will be happy to help.

What makes SCOTTeVEST different from other products?
