Nice Shorts, lacking pockets

I've been using the Pearl Izumi MTB chamois for awhile and decided to try a pair of their shorts as well. They are made of a durable somewhat stretchy fabric that seems like it will last a long time. They're also a good length for me (6'2") in a size large, waist size was also accurate. They hang just below my knees when standing but don't interfere when pedaling. Big plus is the belt loops and they also have some waist adjustment tabs inside. The liner attaches to the inside with a couple loops and allows it to ride almost independently of the short. My only gripe so far is the shortage of pockets. There is two velcro closure pockets on the bottoms and one small zip pocket on the waist line on the left side. No traditional front or rear pockets as the stitching in the pictures may lead you to believe. I'd buy another pair of Pearl Izumi shorts for sure.
