at least a first medial exterior surface and a first lateral exterior surface;
an interior space within the releasably closeable pocket comprising at least a first medial interior surface and a first lateral interior surface;
a first exterior end margin at a first end of the pocket and a second exterior end margin at a second end of the pocket;
a first exterior lengthwise margin comprising a first edge and a second edge, forming an opening to the interior space of the pocket;
a second exterior lengthwise margin spaced apart from the first exterior lengthwise margin, forming a closed bottom to the interior space of the pocket;
at least one pocket securing mechanism configured to releasably capture the first edge and the second edge, to at least partially close the opening to the interior space of the releasably closable pocket;
