Since the 1940s, the U.S. Army have used suspender and belt systems to allow soldiers easy access and to also help take the weight carrying various equipment. In 1956, the U.S. Army developed the M-1956 Load-Carrying Equipment (LCE), which was also known as the Individual Load-Carrying Equipment (ILCE). It was issued in the early 1960s, and was used throughout the Vietnam war.
The Rubberized, Pouch is a semi water repellent companion piece for our Suspenders, Field Pack which can be attached to the suspenders in multiple ways e.g. on the chest, hung on the metal O ring or whichever way that suits the wearer. Inside the pouch is separate flat compartment for easy division of valuables.
The Rubberized pouch features a mini MOLLE (modular light-weight load-carrying equipment) system on the front. These cotton wave tapes allow attachments for clipping smaller items for easy access.
