FIELD UTILITY VEST

PRODUCT DESIGN

In Spring 2011, I was part of a team awarded a Student Undergraduate Research Grant (SURG). We applied for the grant due to our continued interest in the field of entomology and desired to help scientists better transport the equipment they carry on the job.

Currently, there is no wearable organization system, bag, or vest designed specifically for entomologists. By creating the first official entomologist utility vest, we hope to set a standard to which we could design other scientific field vests that will enable scientists from all disciplines to transport their field gear safely and efficiently.
