The 1931 model field bottle strap is made in the best traditions of pre-war German industry. Gorgeous glossy leather, aluminum hook and buckle, brand new shiny cap with pink rubber gasket. There are options for the standard infantry flask of the Heer and the SS (volume of 0.8 liters) and the jäger (mountain) flask (with a volume of 1 liter). All nuances are observed. The skin itself is vegetable-tanned, gently beige, painted black on the outside (along with cuts). Original aluminum buckle, painted black, as on earlier products. The hook is also original, a batch of these hooks was bought by us from a warehouse in Germany. On the inside of the strap is an inkmark. there is an additional piece of leather in the hook fastener (reinforcement pad), as it was on the originals.

The strap is ready to use, no additional straps are needed. To get a complete field bottle, you need this strap, the aluminium bottle itself in a felt case and an aluminum mug.

This is a strap of the highest (museum) quality, which can even be put on the original field bottle. We know that copies are cheaper - but they are worse. You yourself choose what is more important to you: the price or quality of the product.



The flask, cap and other items in the photo are shown to better demonstrate the main product: only the strap described below is sold.

The strap for a field bottle of the 1931 model is made in the best traditions of the pre-war German industry. Magnificent glossy leather, aluminum hook and buckle, brand new shiny cap with a pink rubber gasket. Made specifically for the Jaeger (mountain) flask (1 liter capacity).

All the nuances are observed. The leather itself is vegetable tanned, soft beige, painted black on the outside (the cuts are not painted, but varnished). The aluminum buckle is original, painted black, like on early products. The hook is also original with traces of repair, various brands. In the hook fastening part there is an additional piece of leather (reinforcement gasket), as it was on the originals.

The belt is ready for use, no additional straps are needed. To get a complete flask, you need this strap, the flask itself in a felt case and a plastic or aluminum cup.

There are no stamps on the strap. We can put an ink stamp MN or ESB on the leather (+140 euro). We do not put stamps on the caps. There are no straps without caps. You can replace it with your original cap (+160 euro).

Why such a price?

This is a strap of the highest (museum) quality, which can be put even on the original flask. We know that there are cheaper copies - but they are worse. You decide what is more important to you: price or quality of the product.

Original straps, of course, can be used in the reenactment, but they do not last long, believe me. Even an outwardly perfect original strap will tear or at least crack on the glossy side as soon as you wet it a couple of times during the game and try to tighten it on the buckle. It is also important to remember that the Wehrmacht soldiers used new equipment that was issued to them when they were formed into units. Using dug leather soaked in softeners - all black and shrunk in width - is quite strange in a reenactment. A new strap is needed.
