Excellent collection. Quite fascinating to see so many variations, and I’m sure this is something that has not been widely documented elsewhere. This is possibly “groundbreaking research!”

Interesting to see , I note you have missing the Action Man thick material Special opps Bag though . I loved these as a kid and still do , they were good value with all the kit you got in them .

In my opinion, the kit bag was the accessory with the highest play value, and yes, I loved it as a kid.
When I see my son Aloïs playing, it confirms that opinion.

Would you mind picturing your version please ?
I didn't know there was an ealier issue with thicker material.

Very educational... I like the Action Man one with the French writing... I only have a 40th repro of the early MP kit bag, which looks to be slightly thicker material than the original.

Thanks Didier for sharing and showing us some of the different variations of kit bags. I think a fully packed kit bag is what ever vam should be carrying around with him Wink.

Thanks a lot Chip.
Very interesting.
Another one to hunt for...

Could you tell me if the thick one has a cloth handle on the other side ? (like the 1st issue MP one)
