We all know that an iPad can fit inside the tab pocket of most Scottevest jackets, but what about the new 11.6-inch MacBook Air?
The short answer is that it does fit.
There are caveats, however. The MacBook Air sticks out by about an inch and a half, and you can’t zip up the tab pocket. It also creates a visible rectangular bulge. Zipping up jacket and/or sitting down is impractical with this setup too, but this is a problem with the iPad as well1.
I’ve always wanted to travel as light as possible with a Mac, and the new 11.6-inch MacBook Air with a Scottevest makes it possible. For short day trips where I need to bring a laptop, I can see using this set up instead of bringing a backpack or messenger bag.
1 Maybe this isn’t as much a problem with larger Scottevest jackets.
