Ara Kooser, a doctoral student in biology at the University of New Mexico, tests out the new Scottevest lab coat in his lab. The modernized coat comes stocked with over a dozen interior and
exterior pockets to hold cell phones, tablets, prescription pads, gloves
and all the other gear needed to operate efficiently in a lab or while
working with patients.
The lab coat is available in both men's and women's styles.
Geomicrobiology doctoral student Ara Kooser took the new Scottevest lab coat around the lab for a spin. The coat comes stuffed with tons of pockets to hold tech gear and other supplies for scientists and doctors. Kooser found the cell phone pockets to be especially handy.
Scottevest's lab coat for the 21st century is designed to hold up to the high-tech rigors of gadget-wielding scientists and doctors. This sign cautions University of New Mexico scientists against keeping unauthorized items in the fridge. It's located in the lab where geomicrobiologist Ara Kooser has been testing out the many-pocketed lab coat.
The Scottevest lab coat reimagines the classic white coat as a gadget-carrying piece of clothing. Large interior pockets allow for storing tablet computers, offering protection and easy access for the hardware.
Scottevest turned its attention to redesigning the humble lab coat to meet the needs of the modern world. A ton of exterior and interior pockets hold notepads, tablets, cell phones, writing utensils and other gear.
Pass-through pockets are one of the subtle design improvements Scottevest made to a lab coat. This allows access to interior pockets without having to unbutton the coat. The interior pockets are large and can accommodate tablets and notepads.
Lab-coat tester Ara Kooser, a doctoral student at the University of New Mexico, noted that the pleated back shoulder design of the Scottevest coat made moving around in the lab a lot more comfortable than with a standard lab coat.
The new Scottevest lab coat has tons of pockets to hold hardware and equipment. It also has a loop to keep headphones handy and keep the cords out of your experiments. The $125 coat (about £80, AU$150) is treated with a stain and water-repellent finish.
