The US military has utilized bandoleer's for well over a century. The primary purpose of a bandoleer is to provide extra lead quickly and in a relatively inexpensive or disposable fashion. This bandoleer in particular was designed during the Vietnam war to carry 6 x 5rnd 7.62mm stripper clips (12 clips if you double up). Made from thin cotton material these may not last forever but are extremely lightweight. It comes with a simple over the shoulder sling which troops would often use a single safety pin to adjust the length to fit better (pin not included). Alternatively you can tie a knot in the sling to shorten it in the field.
If your doing a Vietnam war impression for a collection, re-enactment or airsoft kit then these are the ticket. For transporting stripper clips en mass you cannot go past these for price!

Great little bag, as described in cheap feelin cotton with tahs ends from the sewing, but these will make great little tool pouch/rolls for my leatherworking tools, I will just sew more lines in the pocket parts to make more divided pockets. Ots a great conversation starter with the stamping of what its for and the date.
