AFAIK never used in a sentence.

KGT 58:  A skin belt ({qogh}) both held pants (yopwaH) in place and provided a place from which to hang weapons or weapon holders.

KGT 56:  The disruptor pistol, when not in use, may be carried in a holster, or {vaH}, worn on the side of the body and attached to the belt.

Okrand to Lieven L. Litaer (12/07/2010):

  The word {buq} could be bag, sack, pouch or even pocket.
  When clarity is needed, one could say, for example,
  {yopwaH buq} "pants pouch" or {wep buq} "coat pouch" for
  "pants pocket" or "coat pocket," but when the context is
  clear, {buq} alone would suffice for pocket.

Related vocabulary:

yopwaH bID 	shorts (n) (TNK)
yopwaH buq      	pants pocket (n)
