Napolean Pocket A pocket placed near or just below the wearer's heart that is covered by a rain flap and is accessible without unzipping the jacket. So named because the wearer looks like Napoleon when accessing something from this pocket.
No-See-Um This is the term for a generic small insect that has the ability to permeate most mesh. No-See-Um mesh has pores small enough that these insects canít get through. Against popular belief, this does not mean you cannot see through it.
