Good Leather
Review by SomeGuy
Like other reviewers mentioned- good quality leather that needed some care and cleaning. Bit of storage stink- hoping a few days outside will help clear that out. Using it to store some 22LR ammo- able to store 2 50 round boxes of CCI with the plastic dividers for each round or 3 boxes of 50 round Win-X (loose packaging).

...from the flattened condition it arrived in. These have been stored a minimum of 30 years, and it looks like they were stored flat in bulk the whole time. The leather quality is fantastic, but condition is another story. Mine responded to saddle soap and multiple treatments with Bick 14 (saddle leather preservative - way better than any oil). The photos show about the color and random staining to expect. The stiffness initially was amazing, but htese are 8 to 10 oz. leather - very heavy duty. Downside was a bit of dry rot - both the closing tabs came right off at the first try. Had ro cut new ones and attach them myself.

Mine looked nice but....

The back and flaps were in fine shape. One of the belt loops appeared rotten and tore off and the same with one of pocket bottoms. Tore like wet cardboard.....

A Real Beauty
Review by Tracey
...the smaller pouches arrived sealed in plastic, "new surplus". The leather is dry, but I saw no dry rot. They need oiling, and I also used neats foot oil. It took several applications of oil, and I let them rest in between coats. So far, I've applied oil about 5 times, but might add a few more coats, but they are "beautiful" They smell like a saddle, and the leather is becoming very limber. I wanted the pouches to hold my 380 shells on my belt, and they're perfect. A= to the French.

Quality, utility pouch
Review by Greg
I bought a pair of these, complete with a tad of mil-surp smell. The two I received were quite stiff out of the packaging. I folded the flaps down and left them closed for 3 weeks and they will stay about half-way open un-fastened now. I bit more working of the leather ought to fix that. Great for what they are.

Great utility pouches
Review by Stephen
These are heavily stitched to last. my youngest uses a pair to hold slingshot ammo. I added a pair to my tool belt to hold odd tools and parts. They're great for costumes too.
