These unisex, camouflage-colored mitts are not just an accessory but also a survival tool. Two “secret” inner pockets (3” and 4.5” respectively) blend in almost seamlessly on the underside of mitts and are perfect for storing water purification and anti-radiation tablets, weaponry, compasses, matches, or even a small phone. Inconspicuous snap buttons are sewn into the pockets to ensure nothing falls out. The mitts are interchangeable, and can be worn with pockets facing outwards or inwards. They are perfect for the scavenger on the go – never leave hovel without them!

Apocketmitts are knit from the wrist up, and as such the sleeves alone can be knitted and the hand portion left off if the knitter so chooses.
