Unidentified nylon pouch for...Mines? Mags?


Recommended Posts

This pouch was found inside of an early 1990s CFP90 patrol pack. At first I thought it may be for holding a large amount of M14 mags; but the more I pondered, it seemed as though maybe anti-personnel mines might be the better guess. It's got two separate flaps, with a divider down the middle of the inside. There are heavy duty belt loops on the back. No markings anywhere. Anyone know for sure what it was used for?

I agree, they look more like pouches for claymore mines rather than mags.

Definately not for a claymore. Claymore has one flap and on the inside of the flap are sewn on printed instructions for using the mine. Claymore bag has a long strap to wear over your shoulder.

 

Hard to tell how big those pouches are from the pics..

Maybe grenade pouches?

Looks like it has belt loops on the back, probably for a 2" tall belt so I'd guess maybe 4" tall, 3" wide and 2" deep.

 

I feel like I've seen it before but I cant dredge up where.
