Swamp, I got to looking at my jacket last night and the only velcro is around the cuffs and to the hood flaps to cover your face.
The velcro is top notch and will not come apart unless you want it too.
The pockets are snap buttons. The previous line did have velcro pockets and a better/larger velcro for the hood flaps. I took it back and got this one because I did not like the Max-4 for that particular jacket. It was way to green for where I hunt. (ordred online) Returned it and bought it at the store which is what I would recommend.
I bought an extra large because I have a long torso and long arms. The chest is way too big but I hate having the sleeves come to my mid forearm. It is a shade bulky and I can't fit it inside my waders but I like wearing my coat outside my waders, unless I'm sitting in the muck. I usually hunt from a boat so its not an issue very often.
If you like I could try to post some pics that could give you a better idea.
I promise I'm not a cabelas sales rep
Rest in peace my friend... Mocha- Jan 20th, 2001-Feb 1st, 2009.
