We are slowly uncovering items from an army surplus store that closed it's doors in the 1970s, and this is just a small sample of what is coming. These are made of HEAVY leather which has been flat for so long the roundness of where the canister should be will need to be re-trained to it's original shape. The metal rivets and loops are all intact but some are slightly rusty/green from age.The stitching is in great shape, some fraying here and there. This is OLD and is dusty from storage.
They measure approximately 18" long, 5.25" on the flat canister base, the opening for the round canister appears to be approximately 4-4.5", and the straps are 10.5" long. The round loop on the bottom corner is almost 1.5" across, and the smaller "D" ring clamps are just under 1" wide. The straps are mounted on a larger 1.25" "D ring clamp.
