    Found this at the flea market last fall. Got it for $10 No markings, straps are worn, and a few seams are split, but I'm happy!

    I've got one of those that I bought in a surpluss store in Kansas City in 1951, to use in the Boy Scouts. Mine is more green though.
    Still have it burried away some where.
    Very seldom see one these days.

    I found one in my grandfather's attic after he died. I don't know where he picked it up because he never actively served or showed interest in military gear. Last I checked (years ago) the price for a good condition one was around $200.

    Nice! I don't know why, but I've always had a fondness for these. Had one as kid and I wore it the frak out, along with some of the camo HBT trousers. Wish I woulda knew then what I do now Sad
