yeh all kinds of work arounds for no pockets, COurse the simplest thing would be to just put a couple pockets on em, with buttons. Don't get out of bed without, wallet, keys, and knife,. Id also like to be about to have a notepad and pen if needed. My base ball pants have back pockets and belt loops. With a belt I can hang keys, multi tool and wallet goes in the back. I do have a couple lightweight vests left over from my IDPA days. Dunno about them though. My last work around was those fishing shirts with the big cheslt pockets, yehhhh they like to hang on the saddle horns. Guess I'll go with the fanny pack.. Humm maybe I can talk saddlebums into putting some thigh cargo pockets on.
