The vest has a fleece lining. The garment features two pockets at the chest (one zippered, the other hook and loop closure) and zippered pockets at the waist. There is also a detachable front pocket (held in place by snaps) and a detachable “pouch” at the waist held in place by three snaps. The detachable pouch consists of 3 pockets, one with a flap cover, one with a zipper and one with a hook and loop closure.
