'Nam gear


Recommended Posts

I got my hands on some web gear and was wondering if it would be appropriate for a '67 to '69 impersonation? I'll try to rustle up a photo, but it's nylon, and I saw a picture that said it was the 67 pattern.

It could be nasty alice gear however, beware, that's a No No for Vietnam era!

This is what it kinda what it looks like.

1970's through 1990's, sorry.

 

If the canteen don't have the NBC Cover they'd work.

 

Don't bother putting the knife on the upper webgear- that isn't practical. I tried it as a Pvt and found out the hard way.

don't worry, my knives stay on my belt. Plus that's only kinda what my web gear looks like.

67 pattern was scarce in 'Nam. The first pieces were canteen covers and first aid kits, then the rest trickled in. It really didn't become widespread until Nixon had already started pulling us out. Which pieces do you have?

the photo shows all the post 73-74 ALICE gear, nothing would be acceptable for Nam unless you were doing a Marine in saigon in 1975

 

yea you'll never see the M1967 gear as a complete set ever, no more than 3 pieces ever.

 

as for the knife placement Ive seen plenty of high speed operators wearing their knives on the shoulder strap, it all depends on how you like it :)
