  Tan painted 40mm grenade carrier vest.  This one has a contract date of 1997.

 

  Obviously, this vest has seen heavy use in the field and has been used in a desert environment.  What is of interest on this vest is that the chest straps and buckles have been taped with military duct tape.  This taping renders the straps and buckles useless to the wearer.
