Didn't we talk about these earlier pre SARVIP vests not long ago?  I know I posted some pics on here for someone.  They did have a PB label and it appears to also have a Army contract number.  There is actually a bunch of pics I saw online from Natick showing the development of these test vests.

I thought it was the same vest.  Previous topic:

And link showing the pics from Natick labs:

Clearly shows the PB label

There seems to be at least 2 or 3 variations of these between pocket setup and extraction harness.  All have that Point Blank label with a 80s Army contract number.   I recall one of the ALSE FMs from 1983 or 84 had mentioned developmental ALSE and this vest was mentioned in it.
