Cell phone with earbuds so I can listen to the music player app while riding.
Wallet.
Eyeglasses/sunglasses case, although a lot of the time I keep this in my topcase.
Spare foam ear plugs (in case I'm not listening to music on my phone.)
Keys (when I'm off the bike.)

I occasionally put a P&S camera in my pocket when I'm riding, but usually they're empty. My next jacket will have fewer pockets...

Wallet, cash, phone, soft paper towels (instead of kleenex) and keys when I'm off the bike.. That's pretty much it for the jacket. Butt-wipes, food/drink/maps/chargers and flashlight in the tank bag and everything else in the boxes. At least that's how it worked on my last long-ish trip.

This might be a stoopid question, but what's a "wheel book?"

Just curious.

pockets

I only use my inside pockets,wallet in left side , cell phone in right. Like someone else here, if I had no outside pockets it would be OK with me. I also ride a Silverwing and have more storage space then anyone should be allowed to have.

I put a platypus bottle containing juice in one of the the large front pockets and clip the straw somewhere where I can reach it while riding. I was at a toll booth where they handed me a ticket. I looked down and wallah there is a pocket on the right sleeve the perfect size for a toll ticket. I keep some change and a few dollars there just for toll booths. You can unzip that pocket with your left hand while still holding the font brake with your right hand. It is a well thought out jacket. I had a cell phone get wet in the large front pocket. Best to keep the phone in a dry bag or in the inside liner. I probably shouldn't tell you this but my spare cash goes in an envelope kept in the back zip pocket of the liner.

I'm pretty fond of that company. American made in MN. Just in case you haven't seen this... http://www.boringrally.com/
