The classic Vietnam gear belt
100% cotton construction with brass hardware.
Remember how after the Korean War we discovered that we had bad field gear? And how we spent years making a new pattern of gear?
Well we accidentally made a new but still not great set. The M56 gear was a
leap forward, but it needed refinements. Starting in 1961, we started rolling out the second pattern of belts. The only real difference was the weave direction was now vertical. This new weave stiffened the belt and reduced stretch.
The basic design of the M56 belt would remain in service clear into the 21st century in the guise of the LC3 ALICE belt.
Adjustable in length, with a minimum length of of 26 inches out to 41 inches maximum.
