United States Marine Corps Field Equipment
During WWII the U.S. military used cotton webbing and canvas materials to produce personal equipment to be used in the field by it's personnel. The predominant color of the USMC equipment from that era was a mustard shade of khaki. As the war progressed and by the time the USMC landed at Okinawa the USMC started issuing their gear in a similar color to the U.S. Army's light OD #3. However, the USMC did not waste precious equipment and the use of mustard/khaki shade canvas gear continued will into the 1950s when the USMC landed at Inchon, Korea. Many Korean nationals termed the Marines "Yellow Legs" because of the mustard/khaki shade canvas leggings. The images below may at times not show an accurate representation of actual color shade of the item. Our USMC equipment is reproduced with quality and durability in mind with no sacrifice for historical accuracy.
