Big Red…

“Big Red”, modeled here by Josh and Britney. 12 pockets by my count, but there’s probably more hiding somewhere.

…has a lot of pockets. It’s our standard issue parka that gets a lot of wear around town during Winfly, especially in the temperatures we’ve been seeing lately:

Low of -76 F. Nice. Think I have some tea later.

Bonus- it also comes with a name tag so when you forget where you hung it up amongst hundreds of others during lunch you have at least a chance of finding yours. Here’s a sample of what was in my pockets the other evening:

  • VHF Radio
  • Handheld GPS
  • Spare GPS Batteries
  • Leatherman multitool
  • Notebook + Pencils
  • Ear plugs
  • Chapstick
  • Hand & toe warmers
  • 1 burrito* (~ equivalent to a newborn child in mass)
  • 1 bag of cookies
  • Fleece Hat
  • Glove liners
  • Balaclava
  • Mittens
  • Cash for catching the station store when it’s open
  • Carabiner
  • iPod w/ headphones
  • Room key + lab swipe key

*not standard issue
