is this anything?

I picked up this old skool pod pack full of little pods. I don't know if its really that old or not but I thought it was cool. Will be perfect for my daughter if she wants to play when shes old enough.

The pod next to a standard 100rd and 140rd it holds about 50

It most likely holds 80. This should be a circa '91. When bulk loading systems first appeared, they were cobbled together from PVC pipe, and "Butler Creek" scope covers. Hoppers of the day rarely exceeded 90 round capacity. This appears to be one of the earlier "factory made" set-ups.
Is it anything?
Yeah, it's cool, old school and in good condition. Are there any markings on the lids? Perhaps a tag inside one of the pockets naming a manufaturer?
The camo could be "Fast Eddies" (USI).

Actually it looks like an old Viewloader Pod. I believe their capacity was around 55-60 rounds.

I have a few of them myself.

Old VL pods complete with the pack VL made for them.... the pack is rarer than the pods.
