East German Load Bearing Combat Belt
East German Load Bearing Combat Belt
East German Load Bearing Combat Belt

A humble but necessary part of the East German load bearing system, complete with an embossed, powder-coated DDR buckle.

Sizing
To determine your belt size, measure the circumference of your waist. You'll want to choose a belt size that has a maximum size larger than your waist- it's much easier to tighten a belt than it is to add extra material to it.

Specs

  • Grey nylon/cotton webbing
  • Powder-coated metal buckle with simple latch
  • Fits over worn uniform and interfaces with the East German backpack system, canteens, bayonets, etc.

      It's not too big, I swear.

      This belt is the tiddies. Webbing is nice and soft, but not saggy. Buckle was a little scuffed. Perfect. As to the size, it is infinitely adjustable; so long as your waist is smaller than the stated size, you are GTG. Mine measures right at 1.75 inches wide so it will fit appropriately-sized belt loops, holster loops, clips, etc.

      On the downside, if you want the emblem right-side-up, it threads into your pants backwards. Functionally, though, there is no problem running it upside down.

      Great Cold-War relic

      This is actually a very practical belt, a great piece of history, and it tightens easily should one find oneself living under a government like the one that produced it.
