The pack also has a generous storage compartment that can be accessed through two zippers on either side of the pack. The pocket easily handled a smart phone, keys, and a full wallet. I also stuffed a pair of gloves and a hat in it for testing without any issues. Orange Mud also claims that you can attach bungees to the outside of the pack to carry a layer or two. I didn’t have any bungees that fit this application, so that feature remained untested.
