The shallow end allows me to get to small items (flash light, water bottle, etc.) right where my hand naturally falls without having to dig around. The deep end by my shoulders works well for larger items like a pillow or clothing. These items sit flush with the top pocket and remain easy to get to.
+1. I like it this way, too. I wear glasses and have other small items I want to access more frequently. I place them in the shallow pocket, which is right at reachable length when laying down. The current setup works perfectly for me.
