British Army Experimental Pattern 1972 Ammo Pouch Pair

Trialled by the British Army it was never put in to general issue.

The two front pouches are manufactured from two layers of PU-nylon material for rigidity and abrasion resistance, mounted on a double-thickness backing section. A broad nylon strap with two eyelets and a plastic quick-release buckle on a tape tab is stitched to this material. Each pouch could hold three, 20 round 7.62mmL1A1 Self-Loading Rifle magazines.

Left hand pouch: Good used and complete.

Right Hand: The right hand pouch is the rarer item to find. This one had been user modified with the addition of a QR buckle and side straps removed.
