Sleeping Bag Carrier
The sleeping bag carrier is designed so that the sleeping bag and other sleeping equipment can be carried on the back above the field pack. By means of a quick-release system, sleeping equipment can be dropped quickly in case of emergency.
The sleeping bag carrier is of olive drab cotton webbing. Two securing straps, with buckles, are provided to attach the sleeping bag to the carrier. Two attaching straps, with "lift-the-dot" fasteners, and two tie down straps, with glove-type fasteners, are provided for attaching the carrier to the suspenders. The carrier also has a handle so that it can be carried by hand.
