    USMC pouch identification

    Hey guys, I've seen this bag in some footage and pictures and don't know what it is. Has it been made in 1/6?


    Almost looks like the M6 gas mask bag that came with the ss bastogne figure but I only see one button/ fastener.

    Here you will see it on the man moving out of the hole at :35

    That's an interesting one. There were single closing strap aid bags, tho they look smaller in pics of examples. Also, more like this size were WW1 musette bags. Single closing strap, and apparently much in demand. Many seem to have had the lower third reinforced with leather.

    Still, I wonder if these in the pic and footage are something else.

    Grateful for the intel, LOLUSMC. Now that you've ID'd it, I've found quite a bit of information online. It's hard to pick out sharp details from the pic and video, but after seeing the M6 bag,
    those must be LTD buttons, rather than straps.
