I would give it 4.5/5 if I could. I actually prefer that it doesn't have pockets as I tend to use it as a layer that I take on and off fairly frequently. One think I particularly like it for is backpacking. As a light-weight nut I like paring down options that I don't truly require and getting rid of pockets saves ounces which will add up to pounds. That said, it does good features like the elastic around the waist for preventing draftiness. The thickness is great too; it isn't too thick like many vests which end up making your core too warm and sweaty while leaving your extremities cold. I also liked the athletic cut. I take off half a point because you can easily jam the zipper if you aren't careful.
