I have a Scottevest Travel Vest and its a great piece of gear. I wouldn't carry a gun in it but it makes a great concealment vest without looking like the typical gun vest. I have black but I kinda wish I'd gotten a different color, just to remove that last hint of "tactical-ness". Here in the North East vests like these are 3 season attire, common in the general population, not just within the CCW community. Looks a little out of place in the summer though. And despite what a lot of the reviews say they do get a little warm if its hot out, I don't wear mine in the summer much. I wish they made a lightweight, collarless version for warmer climates.
It does do a good job of distributing a load and its pretty impressive what you can get crammed into it. However it can only hold so much before it starts to look like its carrying a lot of weight. The good news is that point is beyond what any other vest can pull off. I wholeheartedly recommend the vests.
That said, I've had less luck with their pants. The cut is pretty weird, I had to get the length hemmed which only exaggerated the low cut crotch, looked very weird on me, think M.C. Hammer pants. (This may not be an issue for taller guys though, I'm 5'5".)
