okay, i get it... patagonia wants to show off by giving the houdini the smallest stuffed dimensions of any wind shirt. but in the process of boasting just how compact it stuffs, the ruined the zippered pocket. it has almost no usefulness. it could hold a key. maybe a drivers license? protein bar? that's it. good luck folding a map small enough to fit in there. and in the process of making such a small pocket, it is not too easy to fit the jacket into it. i have a hard time stuffing the last few square inches in and zipping it closed. had they given the pocket a bit more depth they could still brag, it might be of some use, and it would be easier to stuff. also, an angled pocket makes more sense. despite all this, it's a great jacket!

oh, i'm 5'9, 150, and a medium is as small as i could go. good thing i live in hawaii, if i had to wear many layers - like a fleece - i'd get a large.

could someone please comment and/or attach photos of the interiors? there are two zippered compartments, no? within these, are there paneled pockets for sorting and holding smaller items?

i'm looking for an all-purpose bag, i don't have much to bring with me. stuff for my 1-year-old daughter, few items. both for city and for hiking. most importantly, i like to have some organization with where and how my belongings are kept within the bag. mesh outer pockets are a huge plus.

i'm torn between this and osprey's daylite attachment. thoughts?
