    It's hard to tell from the photos, as you cannot see many details, but the bag looks to be from the early 60's era? William

    I all looks Vietnam era to me. That's a pretty good price for all of it.

    The pack looks like what we, US Army, were issued in the early 70's. We called it the "buttpack". It attached to our pistol belt, and web gear. I'm sure they were used in Vietnam, but I don't know how you could be positive this one was without provenance. The "fleece" cap you see was called the "cold weather" cap. It could be worn by itself, or under the helmet. You could roll up the sides, and use the velcro to fasten it in the front. Definitely not Vietnam issue, but was available at that time to other US troops around the globe, ie. Europe, Korea, etc. Can't help you with the helmet. Looks the same as the one I was issued, but I can't be sure.
