The Mobile Pants come with their share of problems. For
starters, when I first saw the commercial, I was under the impression that
the seam pockets would be completely hidden from view. Not true, the pocket
and zipper itself are completely hidden in the seam; however, the zipper
grip still shows. I attempted to hide this by tucking it away, but it became
too difficult to open the pocket (not good when a cell call comes in).
Another problem which seems quite strange is the pockets overlap. Meaning
the right and left pockets overlap the top few inches of the seam pockets.
To me, this seems to defeat the purpose of the seam pockets. If you have
something large in both pockets, they overlap and stick out more. The last
problem I noticed deals with the seam pocket design. If you don’t leave the
pocket zipped, your device will fall out easily. To fix this problem,
Dockers should make the pocket deeper than the zipper so the device will
rest in place.
