Nice jacket, but could use some more pockets

This jacket looks quite nice on. They run a tiny bit large, so if you are on the border it may be best to go with a smaller size. It definitely keep me warm and dry, which is the goal of any SB jacket. However, I would like to see more pockets. When I head out for a day of riding, I don't like to stop until the last chair turns. That means that I like to fill up my pockets with tools, snacks, and all of the other various accoutrement that helps me enjoy a day on the hill. These are sadly missing on this jacket, but that may be necessary to achieve the refined, simplistic look this jacket has. Also, beware that one of the chest pockets isn't actually a pocket, but just an opening to the inside of the jacket. I'm not sure what the point of this is, but I found it to be pretty useless. Despite this minor gripe, this is a stylish, functional piece of kit!

686, you did something amazing here! Great fit, amazing quality, and the perfect amount/application of features! I can't believe I paid so little for a jacket that looks and feels like the Plexus Hydra! I guess I don't notice the pocket situation mentioned above as my board pants have extras, or it's because I like to stop at the bar at least twice..
