On the Smalto it is also technically functional. But how functional is it really? What can you actually store in that small pocket, and how secure would it be, considering the massive opening of it?

Zach, their MTM guy is a great guy and very knowledgeable.
If this is what the stitching looks like, it is supposed to be like that.
