    AOR 1 Pouch - Need Positive Manufacturer ID

    Post by MyZone on Mon Dec 31, 2012 11:27 pm

    Hello,

    I have an AOR1 pouch (one of many) that came with an AOR1 LBT chest rack. I need a positive ID on the manufacture. Is it LBT or another manufacturer?

    All input is welcome.

    Thanks in advance,
    MZ~

    Looks to be eagle industries to me although i cant be certain. I've never seen an LBT pouch without a tag before.

    Looks LBT to me..I'm pretty certain about that (99.99999999%). LBT typically uses the tan snaps with tan items, green with green, or black with green or black. Eagle seems to use black with everything. Not sure about Eagle using only black with everything but that pouch looks LBT to me.

    As fas as the tags, probably 50% of what I see in the wild and at the factory does not have tags. Most of LBT production goes to the military and the government doesn't care about the tags. Leaving off the tags saves a step in production which equals a few cents in $ savings.

    Also, the SEALs in the past have specifically requested that their gear does not have tags. They don't like to leave gear on the beach or at some other extract point that says "Made in the USA" on it. That ID's the guys who left it there.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Is the cover made of regular cordura nylon or is it like a 3.5 inch wide webbing material because the AOR2 LBT mag pouches I've seen have had that.

    All the EI AOR1 stuff I have seen has been very thin. 330D I think. Hope that helps.

    if its pre EAGLE MLCS theres a good chance its an LBT. i've had a couple of rigs by LBT without tags given to me by the LBT reps in the past so i wouldnt be surprised if its in fact LBT.

    EAGLE does use Tan snaps on their MLCS line and so on and so forth. all MLCS kit now, will have a TAG identifying product model and date. (i know for a fact, i have the AOR1/2 as well as khaki MLCS/PCU kit in my garage)
