Out of stock...


The strap of the ex- West German army (BRD, Bundesrepublik Deutschland). It's similar to the waist belt of the Wehrmacht in design, but wider (width is 5 cm as opposed to 4.5 in the Wehrmacht). So buckles are not interchangeable between them. The belt has a hook at the end, it clings to the buckle's bracket. Leather is smooth side on the inside (like the Wehrmacht) and the outer side is covered with smooth paint. This belt is waistbelt, it is hard enough to hold the weight of the equipment. It may be used as a belt for trousers. The buckle included!

It is theoretically possible to alter this belt to the belt of the Wehrmacht, to do so, cut neatly 2-3 mm along each side. Without alteration is a great leather belt in German style, but without the prohibited symbols on the buckle.

Large sizes are more expensive, small ones are cheaper.

All belts are used, in normal condition. There are signs of getting wet on the inner (light) the side of the belt (probably worn in the rain). The front (black) side is fine. Buckles are all standard, with teeth. There are no buckles with a clip.

The condition of all belts that are currently in stock can be seen in the photo below.
