    Woodlands Survival Vest/Extraction Harness

    Post by filupe on Sat Feb 04, 2012 10:37 am

    This one has me at a loss - very well made with quality materials but no labels anywhere or stampings. I suspect some sort of USAF survival vest but doesn't tally up with anything I'm familiar with ...












    I'm assuming the heavy duty, spring loaded snap buckles prevalent on military type restraint harnesses would be employed at the end of these long straps





    Any further information on this vest would be appreciated ...
