STABO rig, Special Operations Extraction Devise. Rare 2nd issue improved harness that does not have pistol belt sewn into the harness. Purchased in Okinawa. Possibly 1 of 500 manufactured by the 2nd Logistical Command in 1970 during the war.

UDT/NAVY SEAL Flotation Life Vest. Ultra-rare Flotation Life Vest used by US Navy SEAL and UDT teams in Vietnam. The vest inflates by Co2 or an oral inflation tube to keep the users head above water when wearing a heavy combat load in emergency conditions. This vest is dated Nov 1971, mint condition, and comes with a spare Co2 firing actuator (one is attached to the vest, the other is separate wrapped in a yellow, waterproof cloth). This vest is NOT a repro item or post-war and was actually found in Vietnam! Vest shows absolutely no sign of wear or tear inside or out. Serial number 500149 I have tested this vest which inflates, and holds air perfectly. Box is marked "Life Preserver, Yoke, 1 EA. DSA700-71-C-8939, MFD. 11/71, Serial No. 500151". This vest is extremely rare, very hard to find.

Canteen, Collapsible 2 quart (1st Issue).

US NAVY EXPERIMENTAL SEAL FLOATCOAT. Tag reads Experimental Garment Property of US Navy Clothing & Textile Research Unit Natick, Mass. Size Med-short No. Grenadier, Contract No. W00298-70-C 0406. This coat is named to Don Barnes, who served with Victor Platoon 1970 -1971. This garment is in very good, used condition. There is a tear that was period repaired with zig-zag sewing, and a khaki patch on the inside. This jacket was modified by removing some of the ammo pockets as was typical at the time. Don was a radioman, and probably removed some of the pockets that weren't needed, or in the way.
