Type 427 Periscope Pocket Shirt
The Periscope Pocket Tail Shirt is made with pockets which echo the large chest pockets of generic work shirts, accessed from the middle at the top. Periscope pockets have an additional opening at the lower outside, so they can also be used as hand-warmers. Larger objects could be fed in and pulled out from the top, hands and smaller items can be slipped in from the sides.
