Hopefully this doesn't duplicate something already being discussed elsewhere.

I know there's been much consternation over Rivian switching to a mesh door pocket in some of the test mules we've seen pictures of. I, too, would be upset if that details makes it into production.

I noticed today when looking at some of the accessories that the Field Bag clearly shows that the door pocket is NOT made of mesh, but instead looks like a much higher quality material. Picture is below.

I know that the configurator/website are not necessarily the final production spec, but I'm hopeful this confirms that the door pocket should not be among our concerns.

Yeah. It definitely seems that they have upgraded from the "bathing suit liner" style mesh pocket back to something more substantial like you see in the picture above. It is nice to see we are paying $75,000+ for a truck that DOESN'T have mesh door pockets from an '88 Oldsmobile...

Or no door pockets at all like the Model S!

I'm a little sad to see the buckles change to black, however. They were yellow in pre-production photos.

It would be nice if they made one of these for the drivers side door that was a trash can. Watertight removable washable.
