Lightweight Load Carrying Equipment (M1967)

Components of the Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment are similar in design to components of the standard M1956 individual load-carrying equipment. Because nylon materials and aluminium hardware are lightweight, they are used where possible in lieu of cotton materials and brass or steel hardware. The nylon materials are water resistant, retain less moisture and dry faster.
