Needs a few improvements

Basically a good vest but the fabric is a little on the thin side so it is not very warm for cold conditions. Also the zips should be waterproof self-sealing and a little heavier, especially the pocket ones which are very light duty. The inner pocket material needs to be fleece, not mesh to keep hands warm. An inner chest pocket would also be helpful. The present Napolean pocket on the current model is a big improvement on the earlier model.
