The best buttpack ever, I will not hear dissenting opinions on this
100% cotton construction. Brass, steel, or aluminum hardware.
So in 1961 we updated the M56 gear but kept calling it the M56 gear. Except the buttpack, for some reason. We called that the M61. Its special, I guess.
The original idea was this was where you could keep your field rations, but the M56 was too small. The M61 is larger, has more attachment capabilities, and has a proper lid, not just a flap.
And it is special! It helps balance your belt out, and you can put a genuinely unreasonable amount of crap on and in it. you can put a woobie
a poncho on the bottom, two canteens on the sides,
a bayonet using the M1910 hanger hook system on the lid. Just think of all the family-size bags of skittles you can carry!
These are overall good usable condition. They will have signs of repairs on them, they might be a little musty, and the poncho material may be deteriorated. But there will be no unrepaired holes, all eyelets will be present, and the clips will function as they should.
