    This first canteen set is definitely IDF, and I suspect so is the second one:

    While I am here, here are a few other pieces. Has anyone ever come across an Israeli etool and/or carrier?




    I am not sure if the suspenders are made from recycled ME Co parts, of if they are actually made for the IDF by Mills. After all, there is no sign of a broad arrow.

    Great stuff - the markings on your small pack seem to confirm that Mills made this stuff directly for the IDF. I had never seen the correct shoulder straps before.

    Thank you. That were my thoughts too, as I see this Pack.

    To answer your quesetion on a etool Carrier: I have never see one. I have a Photo wehre you can See one. Maybe it is an US Carrier. But I am Not sure.

    I'm curious as to what the earliest dated webbing part anyone here has of the webbing like in Wolverine's pics.
    The normal British type stuff (either reissued and/or made for them) was used before this type, along with some US and other WW2 stuff, like reworked German bayonets etc.
