*Note* Some of these have stamp markings on the reverse side from film set use (see photo for an example). Some have more brown showing through the black polish than others
Original German WW2 Y-straps are hard to come by (and expensive!). Many other militaries roughly copied their design postwar and since then many of these have been used as 'German fakes' - that is exactly what these are. Original Czech Army suspenders, these have been shoe polished black and had the metal parts removed and replaced with D-rings and hooks a bit more similar to the original. Apart from the sharp reenactor/history buffs eyes, at a arms length these look right in place on a WW2 film set. That is where we believe a good number of these have been and made their way here!
Functionally, these work exactly the same as their German WW2 counterpart. Small differences such as some cuts of leather parts, stitching placement and 'fish scale' patterned leather are among the main visual differences. These will work with the likes of Tornister packs, A-frames or even a East German Sturmgepack. Ideal for film projects or 'close enough' WW2 airsoft kits without compromising build strength!
