The hand pockets have zippered closure to keep the wind out. I have owned this jacket for nearly 20 years and I'm sad to say it feels too small on me now, and deserves an owner who will wear it often once again.I take great care of all my leathers, so it has the smooth hand and beautiful teacore that horsehide is prized for. The next-to-last photo is me wearing it to give you an idea of fit. I wear at least a 44, and this is tagged a 42. I have a 45.5 chest. 34 waist, and weigh 200 lbs, which required a thin and tight t-shirt for the photo. If you are familiar with Vansons, they are meant to have a trim fit, especially their biker jackets. If you lean towards a 40, I feel this jacket will fit you as well. Here are the measurements with it laying flat and zipped up, for you to guarantee fit by comparing these numbers to a jacket you already own and like. Across the chest, armpit to armpit: 22.
Sleeve length from shoulder seam: 23. Length down the back from top of collar: 26. Width across the waist with buckles as shown: 20.5.
