I didn't notice the no pockets until I tried this thing on the day I got it. Why wouldn't there be pockets? It can't reduce weight that much. I wore it a few times and loved everything about it with the exceptions of the lack of pockets. I couldn't get over this. I tried to put my hands in the no-pockets a hundred times while wearing it. This was a deal breaker for me and I sent it back.
If I was always going to use this as a layering piece under something else, it would have been near perfect. The quality, fit, weight and comfort is top notch. I highly recommend this vest for what it is. I hope they add pockets in another version of this.
