Odd USAAF parachute back,seat pad

Recommended Posts

It has 2 zippers starting at the top and running down to both bottom corners. Nothing inside. USAAF stencil on both sides and one small square ink stamped inspectors mark. Clearly the parachute harness goes under the small straps, and there are 4 loops, one in each corner, for the seat cushion. Anyone have any information about it?

The inspection stamp is illegible. And you're right that it's about 3 inches deep.

would agree for sure to be used as a back pack after the jump...as to what went inside.. sleeping bag is as good as anything, that and a survival kit...

 

possible that it was locally manufactured based on units requirements?
