this is very collectable Vietnam war gear item nowaday. 

The First production STABO was supplied by the CISO ( Counter Insurgency Support Office) for Special Force in 1969. It was developed by SF instructors ( Maj Robert L Stevens, Cpt .John . D. H Knabb and FC Clifford L. Roberts )at the MAC V SOG recondo school in the Republic of Vietnam in the fall of 1968.

the harness was made from type -13 nylon and formed an X across the back , in order to be extracted the SOG team memebers simply snapped the helicoptor’s extraction line bridle to the two shoulder mounted ” D “ rings

It was prefered over the McGuire rig because there was no chance of falling out of the STABO if you were wounded or unconscious,

and it allowed hands free return of fire at the enemy while being extracted.

It was also used as an LBE, allowing the soldier to attach his individual equipment. It is identical to the older one issued during the Vietnam war but upgraded to a nylon belt and webbing verses the older canvas , the harness was also designed in part to replace the M1956 / M1967 load Carrying Suspenders.

This is a nice piece of gear and saved the lives of many SOG team members during the Vietnam war.
