Is this an issued canteen carrier?

This one is a little odd to me.  From the front it looks like a first pattern USMC, but is lined and has a reinforced hangar sewn in the center back with a standard type hangar.  It also looks to be made of multiple pieces.  It came with a matched SM Co. ‘44 canteen and cup-  It doesn’t have the look or feel of the Japanese-made repros, but I couldn’t find anything similar in the reference section.  Any leads appreciated!

Looks like one of the knock off surplus specials from post WW2 seen im surplus stores and often I find them in boy scout gear lots with GI canteens or JAPAN marked canteens.

Thanks, Gents - It was different enough from ones I had seen to ask - I appreciate your thoughts
