Default Gas flags and pouch- legit? Post war?

Are these gas flags legit? I don’t like the fact they appear to be thin nylon cloth. Yes nylon was around but I find it hard to believe it would be used for this kind of use as it’s really thin and easily torn. The flags are all wrinkled and wadded and don’t hang down as to be visible well if inserted in the ground. The pouch also seems really thin to me. I don’t see any makers markings notice the nylon fibers in first picture
