This is the carrying case for the M17 Gas Mask that was used in the US Military. The M17 Gas Mask was used from 1959 to the mid 1990’s. The bag is made of heavy duty cotton canvas and has plastic strips to reinforce the pouch and protect the gas mask when stored inside. The bag has two adjustable straps for wear. One is for around the waist and the other around the left thigh to keep the bag from moving around. The bag is intended for wear on the users left side. There are two exterior pockets on the bag for storing the straps and other accessories. The main compartment is closed by a button snap flap that keeps contents secure but easy to access.
