Anyone know what this is?

No markings that I can see on the pouch or belt. Inside of the snaps say DOT(?) Backside of the male snap say "United" something.

      US Army WWI or WWII medic pouch?

        That was kind of my guess too since it's insulated. I mean maybe not WW2, but for carrying vials of some medicine that needed to be somewhat temperature controlled.

          I think its WWII because its got that olive drab shade almost unique to the US Army WWII uniform.

            Has a strange latch, not really a surplus collector but Ive never seen one like this

              I've seen that on some kind of belts or pack straps on US equipment before. Also note the flat portion of the buckle (?) has an anchor stamp. I forget who made buckles, etc. with that stamp but someone more knowledgeable should know.

        May be for plasma? Just a guess.

          It's insulated or padded, but has holes for ventilation? I dont get it.

      >insulated
      maybe batteries
      maybe sensitive explosives
      maybe camera film

      measure the diameter of the compartments and assess how stretchy they are

        They fit a small 12oz energy drink can pretty well for diameter. 6inch tall can is too tall to close the lid/cover though. Guess it could be used to hold some type of grenade? Im not familiar with military grenades.

        "DOT" as in "Lift the Dot" fastener (snap). No clue about "United" but I assume it's referencing the company that owns the "Lift the Dot" name.

      Pretty sure it says "United" at the top and some marking at the bottom I cant make out on any of them.

    I don't think it's necessarily military surplus. I think it may an old mining/demolition blasting cap/priming charge bag. Lots of that old gear was drab colored canvas. It's padding, not insulation.

      I'm withdrawing my first guess posted here and changing it to this:

      Is it a bag for carrying flamethrower ignition cartridges? I think dudes who carried the M2 flamethrower carrier 3 cartridges at a time as their loadout.

      Could be, the main latch seems a little flimsy for something military

    That's an insulated battery pouch for the AN/PRS-4 mine detector, Korean War era.
    As people are rediscovering nowadays, batteries suck in cold weather and need to be kept from freezing.

      Very nice anon. Never thought about insulating my batteries before this thread; might have to watch for JoAnn sales and snag a yard or two of the wool felt and see what I can do before next winter. Hell, an insulated phone pocket might be nice too; those batteries get used hard and the cold only makes the battery life way worse. Also, funny you say that people are re-discovering the whole batteries dying quick in cold weather because back in ~2013-2015 I distinctly remember people rubber banding Hot Hands hand warmers to their GoPros so they could record snowboarding first person POV videos longer with their Hero 3s! Snowboarding is a very cold sport so everything you can do to keep a battery warm helps. Not only are you in the coldest season of the year, you go up on a mountain, which is windy, and go down it at 20+ mph. Also my resort uses reallly old water sprayer snow makers in some areas instead of the fancy modern blowers so you get covered in a ton of water droplets coat on certain lifts lol.
