US ALICE first aid/compass pouch, usurplus
A small nylon pouch for a compass or first aid dressing. A really handy addition to any rucksack and shoulder bag, or just hang it on your belt.
The M-1956 first aid / compass pouch was more or less directly transferred over to the newer systems. The first improvement came in 1967 in the guise of a pouch of the same model, but made of nylon and with a plastic snap fastener, instead of the older canvas one which had a standard metal snap. Canvas and metal items don't play well in the moist jungle.
Later, in the 70's, these were redesigned slightly and the plastic snap - which ultimately proved too fiddly - was changed to a brass one. This is pretty much how things stayed up until the advent of MOLLE gear. This is a simple, envelope-like square pouch with one US keeper on the back and a metal snap in the front.

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
