Features
  • After traipsing around in the jungles of Southeast Asia for about 5 minutes, the US military discovered that the gear we used was crap. Cotton gear rotted, the M14 was awful, and leather boots weren't gonna cut it.

    Out of this was born the M67 nylon field gear. Made of lightweight nylon that would not rot, and with plastic snaps that would not corrode. It was perhaps not as hard-wearing, but it wouldn't decay with normal use, which was HUGE.

    Most of this stuff got used up after Vietnam, so not much has survived in good condition like this. The US military isn't a bunch of collectors. They see a canteen pouch and issue a canteen pouch. Hell, the USMC was still issuing M67 stuff in the 90s.

    Anyway, these are neat little pouches and great for collectors, or for actually using.
