Add a POCKET to Your Cycling Jacket!!

I cycle A LOT!! I'm a commuter, mountain biker, and all around BIKE GUY! I bought this nice cycling jacket that keeps me WARM and DRY during inclement weather. The thing is it only has ONE pocket, and its in the back. This left me with no place for KEYS, SUNGLASSES etc...

    Good idea. I never thought of gluing fabric like that but it should work. Thanks for sharing.
