Pocket review: Bandolino Mandie 5-pocket Jeans

I've got a size 8 in Mandie 5-pocket Jeans from Bandolino.  The same gray color is still available on Amazon and other regular jean colors are available too.  There also appear to be petites, capris, and shorts available in this style.  I haven't looked at those in person so I can guarantee they will have the same pockets, but it seems likely.

Front pockets are 5" rivet to rivet at the opening.  The right side coin pocket is 1.75" wide and about 3" deep.

Inside the front pockets are very wide (almost 8") but shallow (about 2.5" at both rivets).  You'll see I added on pocket extenders to these, but they weren't too bad before because of the width allowing more pocket space than a typical shallow pocket.

The back pockets are typical for jeans.  They are about 5.5" deep in the middle and 4.75" at the sides. The opening is 4.5" and the width is just a little smaller (maybe 4 3/8") at the base.

Overall, before modification these had decent pockets.  The shallow front pockets were improved by their extremely wide width (going from side seem over to the zipper).
