    Any thoughts about this gents,another item recently dug out out of long term storage.

    Looks to be made of some form of cloth covered rubberised fabric,a poncho maybe?

    Not sure either if Vietnam period or later?

    Thanks

    Only just dawned on me now whilst taking the pics that it is made in the BDU style so guessing now Post Vietnam.

    Your right about the BDU patch pocket set up. The pocket style would say to me RDF (75-81) period because the lower cargo pockets are to one side and not central to upper pockets.

    I know this is an old post, but wanted to comment that I had one sort of like this that I bought in a ville in 1968 or 1969 in III Corps, Vietnam: at some point after I got back to the US I threw it out because the material had dried out. My suspicion, based on that experience, was that these were not made with official issue poncho material on the inside, but some type of cheap plastic.
