The black Leather Y-straps (Koppeltragegestell) were used by the Luftwaffe troops to support the weight of ammo pouches and the field gear on the belt. The same design was also used by light infantry if the German army and also some kriegsmarine units. Later in the war, after the production of brown leather equipment was discontinued, these were issued to the frontline troops.
Only the highest quality vegetable tanned leather offer strength and comfort when using these y-straps. With steel metal hardware, and the correct features and cut of the leather parts, the exact replica has Been added to the “Christian von Wohl” brand.
Perfect to finish off a late war Fallschirmjager or a Luftwaffe field division impression.
