This is a fairly recent, but I don't think current pouch to carry rain gear. The straps on the back with the LTD fasteners are so it can be easily added or removed from the belt. It is not combat gear but rather used on fatigue details and police call around the garrison, they were issued as needed.

QED4, you think it is US gear then? Can you give a time period or any more info?

The only item I ever knew of to carry a poncho and liner was the nylon pouch used with the M1967 gear.

In case you didn't catch it, it is a pouch designed for a rain poncho that doubles as shelter, with buttons for connection with a mate or making makeshift sleeves.

Similar to the US army lightweight poncho of WWII.
