In the search for the perfect coat that will fit various sundry items (cellphone; keys; Metrocard; lip balm; camera; iPod; Thompson; Sharpie pens; ), we came across the Micro System Version Three.0 coat by Scotte Vest, which has 40 pockets to fill those needs and more. Some of its features:

It's like Inspector Gadget's coat for the real world! Now, if we're able to locate all of the things we stash in the jacket, rather than buy a Metrocard or Chapstick for each pocket, we'll be in business.
