Last week I wrote about some exciting news regarding my relationship with travel clothing company SCOTTEVEST.
I’ve had a chance to use some great gear provided to me by SCOTTEVEST. A couple of my favorite items are the Fleece 5.0 (check out my review here) and Ultimate Cargo Pants.
I’ve been using the cargo pants all summer (wearing them converted to shorts) and got a ton of use out of them on my trip to South Dakota.
For my upcoming trip to Southeast it’s going to be way to hot to wear my Fleece 5.0 so the kind folks at SCOTTEVEST offered Kim and I a SeV Travel Vest
. The vest looks and fits amazing and the pockets will definitely come in handy at the airports (we’ll be visiting quite a few during our trip). Some of the pockets on the Travel Vest will probably be used in an unexpected way- to store some of Lucas’ baby gear!

Some features on the SeV Travel Vest:
- 24 Pockets- pretty much an extra carry on
- Lightweight poly-fabric
- Teflon treated- to be water and stain resistant
- Deep pockets- one can even hold an iPad!
Kim and I can not wait to go on our next adventure and bring the SeV Travel Vest along!
SCOTTEVEST has been very kind to Michael W Travels and is sponsoring a contest on my blog. SeV and Michael W Travels will be giving away a SeV Travel Vest
to one lucky reader!!!

Fodor’s blog has an article featuring what they call the “Best Compact Cameras For Summer”.
I’m always interested in hearing about new cameras and technology and this article does mention some pretty cool, new cameras.
At the end of the article there is a sweepstakes where you can win a Sony Digital Camera. More on that later on!
The article features five cameras. According to the author, these cameras can do things that your old one could not do. They differ in how and where you are physically able to take your pictures.
Here are the cameras:
Nikon Coolpix S1200PJ– Shine your images onto a wall with the built in projector
Casio Tryx– Swing the camera’s frame and twist it’s screen, allowing you to extend your reach, hang it or stand it on it’s own for self portraits. There are also a couple of new ways to set the timer.
Samsung MultiView MV800– Lets you angle the screen low or high to make it easier to get difficult shots. It also has bunch of different editing features built in.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX20– Small and waterproof (up to 16 feet), dustproof and shockproof. Can take 10 shots per second as well as some other nice shooting features.
Kodak EasyShare Touch M5370– Great for sharing photos by tagging and hitting the share button. This allows you to print and/ or send to friends by e-mail or social feeds the next time you connect the camera to your computer.
The cameras all have some interesting features but I am most interested in the Sony Cyber-shot. Kim and I have a camera that is water proof/ dustproof/ shockproof but the picture quality is not the best. I love having a waterproof camera for snorkeling and other water related activities.
It just so happens that Fodor’s is giving away
a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX20
