I have not had any problems with the stitching, and have found the product to be reasonably warm for its very light weight. Pockets might have been nice for handwarming, but if it is really cold, I can wear my windshirt over it, which has a kangaroo pocket. The previous poster may have encountered a bad product run, and might have done better to post the enquiry on a forum. Look at the Montbell UL Thermawrap jacket, 8.8 oz.(M)for comparison-no hood though.
