"The pockets are a tad small if you like to carry the contents of your kitchen about on your person and they won't take a map, but for us, they're adequate."
Don't typically keep maps in the kitchen, but do insist on pockets that will take one. It's fair enough that the Merkins haven't sized for an OS map because they don't have OS maps, but it'd stop me from buying one of these. So, Columbia take note for version 2. Kudos for realising that there's Proper Rain outside their design shop and putting a wire in the hood though
