Bought this on Fleabay a while back, apparently It's a small protective pouch for an assembly of some sort on an unknown ejection seat. Anybody care to take a shot ar what It's for, and what seat ?image.jpeg

I can't read what is printed on the bag.

I would guess it would be for the stowage of ejection seat safe pins when the pins were removed from the seat.

I believe that I remember seeing a pouch like this on F-100 Super Sabre and possibly RA-5C Vigilante ejection seats?  Could possibly be used with a ballistically spread parachute system or possibly a force deployed system?  I will have to do more research.

the red tag states "explosive cutter installed, do not use static line to open parachute"

 

there is a hole in the pouch for a static line I guess.
