Hello, recently I got this vest. It looks like standart M69. Has normal nylon filler with stiffeners. 

 

Covering is a bit worse quality. I would say non-military grade nylon fabric. And there is this odd label.

Back is standart. Vest never been used. It has some minor storage marks. It's quite known manufacturer. Probably, vest was made in 70s or 80s as the label is quite from the era but it's not an M69 vest's label (M69 is the only one model with velcro and has big green label and pocket for instructions).

What dou you think about? Is it worth keeping? Is this a movie prop? Do you recall any Vietnam War movie where they used extensively M69 vests with velcros?

I must watch Full metal jacket once again....

 

 

 

Or maybe it is an experimental item?
