1967 "PONCHO W / HOOD INDIGENOUS"- EVER SEEN ONE?

Recommended Posts

I got this lightweight, unissued poncho from estate of an early VN army advisor. can't find another. I assume they were for the montenards and other peoples the u.s. trained. any help appreciated, maybe from the specs which I cant 'translate' other than the date and maker's name. thanks s lot.

further on this: plastic snaps one side white, other black. and size vs. normal in really small, just 3'6" x 6' and light, 6 ounces! also, no corner grommets just button holes

 

is this maybe like the experimental early bladder canteen - tried but found wanting? (except to collectors!) here are more fotos if they help by the way note it has a drawstring neck and the true color is a light green and hardly reflective
