Recently found this rig and buttpack at a gunshow. I was hoping some of you could shed some light on it. This appears to be a VERY EARLY BHI float rig and special ops buttpack. If i read my BHI history correct, they started-up around 1993. The buckles on both pieces are dated 1992 and i know you can generally date the item within two years of the buckle dates. The other very odd thing about both items is the big yellow BHI labels. Ive never seen them in this style. A buddy of mine was thinking these might have been used originally as demo pieces to the different units or at BHI's headquarters. Eventually it saw some use downrange (or training).

The pack appears to be a copy of LBT's 0990 Special Ops Pack. The back straps are a little different but it has the side pouches and the pop flare elastic loops on the bottom.

If anyone can tell me a little more about these pieces id be greatly appreciative of it! Thanks in advance

I had the exact same float vest (same tag, etc), purchased direct from BHI in 94 or 95. I think that's just the tag they used at the time (I know, right LOL), as I have had several of there early items with that label. Cool stuff.
