    We clearly need more of these robust Paxo-esque interviews!

    To be honest the phone-hacking is simpler, but...

    Not convinced... the key/emergency cash thing is there irrespective of rain so you'll have a solution in any case (I'd use the Extra-Strong-Mint pocket in my tracksters or shorts). Ergo, a ranshell doesn't need one, on the arm or anywhere else.

    c.f. the Montane Featherlite, and why nobody ever uses them because they don't have a pocket (or, errrr, not).

    So the pocket is waterproof?
    If my tenner gets soaked, will they reimburse me?

    Using their logic, why doesn't every windshirt have a 'key' pocket?

    My take is that the pocket is there if I choose to use it, it doesn't add huge weight or complexity to the garment and if I choose not to use it because I have an alternative option then it's not really that important.

    You know you can just dry tenners out, Mike? Or have you never forgotten to take your spare bankroll out of your Speedos before diving into the pool?

    Have you ever walked into a 'posh' hotel in Scotland, apologised for the dirt, made a few customers faint with your steam, then have the hard neck to hand over a soggy tenner for a pint?

    That is what I dislike about my montane fetherlite velo. I would like a (mesh(?)) pocket for my keys and work pass. It isn't a deal-breaker as I can get at a cycling top worn underneath.

    I'm not happy at the size of the zip slider and puller. Why not a neat snap-down 3C DSBYG? It's outrageous.
