    Bib short pocket?

    I've got a couple pairs of bib shorts with a small pocket in the tee of the back between the shoulder blades. I find it handy for carrying the battery for my helmet light but I doubt that is the intended purpose.
    Does any one know what it is for and if it has a name.
    Cheers

    Radio pocket. Pro road racers all have team radios.

    I have put pockets on the bib shorts I have made, larger than the radio pockets. Work well for the small items you need to carry but do not really require quick access.

    Thanks Shiggy
    Since I'll never be pro, I'll stick with the battery.
