Stock quotes in this article: GKNT





FAIRFAX, Va., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ThinkGeek (NASDAQ: GKNT) and TEC by Scottevest have worked together to create and launch the Tropiformer Jacket, a tech- and travel-focused garment that makes carrying gadgets and gear easier than ever.

Available in four colors, the Tropiformer features 22 integrated pockets designed to equally distribute the weight of an entire convention's worth of necessaries and make navigating merch lines even easier.  The Tropiformer also includes magnetically attached sleeves to transform from jacket to vest in seconds.

Other features include:

  • Dedicated tablet pocket
  • Quick Draw Pocket featuring clear touch material for capacitive devices
  • Locking Pocket to keep your gear your own
  • The Patented Personal Area Network (PAN) for internal cable (headphone and charger) management
  • Packs into itself for easy storage
  • Highly water resistant material to maintain moisture-free devices

"This is one of those products that fits ThinkGeek's audience exceptionally well," states ThinkGeek Mouthpiece Steve Zimmermann.  "Working with TEC to come up with something that covers every kind of gadget has been incredible and we're proud to be an exclusive retailer of the new Tropiformer."

To celebrate the launch of the Tropiformer Jacket, ThinkGeek is kicking off the "Scottevest Travel Con-test."  Announced on ThinkGeek's blog, entrants guess the weight of all of the items that have been easily packed into a Tropiformer to enter to win the fully loaded jacket.  There's no better way to kick off convention and travel season than to win everything you need.

Available April 9 exclusively from ThinkGeek.com and TECclothing.com, the Tropiformer will be everything the geek on the go would need to fast travel from point A to B at warp speed.
