    Here's a couple of Vietnam War Magazine vests , the vests where first used by ARVN Forces and then copied and adopted by American Forces , they where made in many styles and patterns , camo patterns used where Tiger , ERDL and Leopard/Duck Hunter , many where also made in the regular OG107 fabric used for fatigues.

    I own an OG107 model

    I've never saw or heard of these! What American units used them? How would you wear your LBE with one of these?
    You don't show any markings on the OD one, but the erdl one is a civilian made item, Not military issue! Soumds like a post war fantasy item to me.

    You could wear LBE under it or over it , depended on the type of vest.

    A few units used them as trial versions .

    The OG107 model has no markings as most of them didn't have them.

    Not a fantasy item at all , CHIEF Sporting manufacture made a few of the vests in ERDL and Tiger.
