  • FSN
  • 8465-823-7622
  • Specification
  • MIL-F-40165
The M1961 butt pack improved upon the original M1956 design with the addition of a rubberized waterproof throat lining to a larger storage compartment. Each new pack was supplied with a load carrying equipment instruction pamphlet or sheet. Like its predecessor, the pack was typically worn on the pistol belt, but could be worn on the back with the use of M1956 adapter straps, or clipped directly to the shoulder snap hooks on the M1967 suspenders.
