Having clothing that can take all your gadge is one thing, making it look more chic than geek, however, is another thing. Tekkima wants to show the world how it is done with their latest 3-in-1 jackets: The Mobilizer and The Prevail.
I get around quite a bit in order to attend device launches and shows. Most of the time I am laden with the tech I need in order to document these visits, also for my entertainment between them. This generally requires me to at least be equipped with a rucksack. Other times, a suitcase with a lightweight rucksack, I use this one by Leaper, if I am away overnight or longer.
I have seen many such jackets, the ScottEvest, for example, that are able to store your kit. However, few have managed to retain the urban cool style people are looking for.
Thankfully, US brand, Tekkima, has launched the Mobilizer and Prevail proving functional clothing can look equally good in urban or country settings.
The high-performance waterproof softshell fabric is lightweight as well as giving. This enables it to keep you dry as well as mobile.
Other features include a convenient two-way zipper and an adjustable hood as well as an exterior chest pocket.
The two interior pouch pockets will take phones, tablets and other essentials. There is also a pair of zippered hand-warmer pockets.
The Mobilizer is the ideal wear-anywhere jacket for the upcoming early spring weather. It bridges the gap between bulky outerwear items and insulated jackets. At the same time, it looks fantastic in the city, at the office, or literally in the middle of nowhere. All that while also providing reliable protection against the cold and the rain.

You also get two stealthily slashed internal pockets that can hold your tablet and other mobile devices.
That vest also features a further 3 external and 2 internal pockets.
Personally, I really do like its refined, classically simplistic styling.
