- These pockets were attached to the leg of the spacesuit worn by Michael Collins on the Apollo 11 mission in July, 1969.
- Spacesuit construction and astronaut preferences meant that pockets to hold scissors, checklists and other small objects needed to be removable, with the possibility of placement elsewhere - on the other leg for example. They were attached to the spacesuit with the use of loops and tapes, and held in place with velcro tabs.
- Transferred to the national Air and Spoace Museum from NASA in 1971.
