A kangaroo pocket is like a pouch on the front of a sweatshirt. A pocket sewn completely on the outside is a patch pocket. Ones in the side seam are set-in pockets. Patch pockets that have pleats for fullness and usually have some type of closure are cargo pockets.

Look in a good sewing text for pockets and how to sew them.
