    I threw my Scott eVest in the wash the other day and left my Pen stowed in its Pen pocket. Found it in the washer when I went to put the coat in the dryer.

    I disassembled the Pen completely, removed both sets of batteries and then left all the individual components in a big bowl of rice overnight. I made sure that rice filled the smaller chambers of the Pen and cap portion.

    Put it all back together the next day and it works great! I am glad too! :D

    Ha, a better outcome than a real ink pen... you would likely have had ink all over your clothes... :)

    The last time I washed my clothes with a pen, I had blue ink all over my clothes.
