That looks like an A.L.I.C.E. (All Purpose Lightweight Individual Carrying Equipment) rucksack that came out in 1973 but was never used in South Vietnam.

it isn't VN era.

The early ALICE packs from 73 had different details. The one in the photos is later.

Also I think the shoulder straps aren't even "real" they look like the aftermarket ones made in Korea.

yes, I noticed, color kinda orange, very strange

I've seen web gear that got bleached that color by immersion in pools for drownproofing training

It appears to be a medium ALICE pack that as Linedoggie stated got bleached in a pool, or was over washed left out in the sun or something.  SKIP
