Gear Diary’s No Baggage Challenge for Charity

Dan and Larry from Gear Diary have decided to take on the No Baggage Challenge on their upcoming trip to CES. If you haven’t heard of this before, it’s pretty much exactly what the name suggests – travelling without any bags at all. Now, Dan and Larry are not going to fly to Las Vegas for the better part of a week with nothing more than the clothes on their back – ok, maybe that’s technically true, BUT the clothes on their back are anything but normal. They will be outfitted with SCOTTEVEST items like the Evolution, Revolution, Q-Zip, Flex Cargos, and even the boxers. What’s so special about SCOTTEVEST clothing you ask? Well, it’s technology enabled clothing that’s focused on making things easier when you travel. All the garments are loaded with extra large no-bulge pockets allowing you to carry everything from spare shirts to a laptop. I have a couple SeV items in my closet and they are remarkable items.


So why are Dan and Larry taking on this challenge? Well, they’re doing it for charity! Specifically, they are raising money for Haiti Plunge – a charity focused on developing a permanent clinic that provides ongoing preventive care, curative care, and health promotional services for the underserved people of 9 mountain villages and the Caberet region of Haiti. Gear Diary has a special discount code that gets you 10% off any product from SCOTTEVEST. As well, SCOTTEVEST will donate 10% of the purchase price to charity. Plus, of course, you can head over to Haiti Plunge and donate a little yourself. :)

I’ll be chatting with Dan and Larry once I arrive in Las Vegas and asking them all about their travels so far. I’m looking forward to hearing how security treated them, as well as the airlines.
