My web page, all about US Nylon Field Gear 1967 to 2005

I have been trying to collect pictures of M1967,Alice, or IIFS field gear for some time. Basically I am trying to get pictures of every Nylon item made from 1967 to 2005 that has Alice clips on it, or is made to work with items that have Alice clips from that period. I have tried to make it as complete as I can. Have a look and see what you think. There are a couple M14 specific items on there too.

Thanks from DVS and High Hat

I had some of it, lol. But I could not stand the smell some of the Canvas gave off LOL. Besides the Nylon looks a little better with my Woodland BDUs

I'll let you in on one you can put on your "search for" list. In the 1960's the Marine Corps continued to use the M1 rifle in ITR and issued some well used M1 10 pocket cartridge belts for use with it. There came a point at which there was a shortage of canteen covers with M1910 belt hooks and the only ones available were M1956 covers which cannot be used with the M1 rifle cartridge belt. So someone at Camp Pendleton had made an adapter that had two slots in it for the M1956 belt slides and a M1910 hook on it to attach to the M1 cartridge belt. I assume they were fabricated at one of the textile repair shops on the base, and I'm certain they were made in small quantity. It is an interesting little item that is likely lost to history.

Thanks for the work on the nylon gear. I've already bookmarked your site for my library.
Now I have to go thru some of my piles. I've still got at least a few nylon pouches that were supposed to be made for the M14 magazine. I know that one of them matches a pouch that Bill Ricca provided for the Book "Last Steel Warrior".

Sorry, I don't have one of them. As I said, they are likely lost to history.
