Waist Size (Maximum)
Condition

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

As a belt for your pants it's absolute overkill. A testament to the soviet way of doing things it's not lightweight or wieldy in any respect of the words but by god it will never let you down.

It's borderline ratchet-strap nylon will keep even the heaviest-loaded boomer cargo shorts as upheld as their guaranteed social security checks that the next generation will never know the taste of. It's buckle although commie-symbol-adorned can be easily hidden if you roll with your shirt untucked.

Alternatively, if you're a crazy person who ACTUALLY wants to use the belt for it's original purpose as a load bearing belt with the combat pack, It's an essential piece that really brings the whole thing together. 


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.

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.

Condition

Unissued: Belt is in factory new, unissued condition.

Great:
Belt has definite signs of use, but is ready for plenty more. May have scratches, small patches of surface corrosion, but otherwise belt is fully functional and ready to be worn.

    Not bad

    A little dusty and the buckle is a little dinged, if you were wanting to put it in a museum or something. But it works fine in it's intended role- as a belt. Sizing is pretty darned close, so that's good too...

    "Communism Fell, but my pants will not"

    It's a pretty good bely, docent turn to put it on. Easy to trim to size.

    Great belt

    This thing is built to last. The belt itself was sturdy and had good rigidity. Buckle feels well made as well. Going to definitely be using it a lot. Got delivered pretty fast as well which was a nice bonus!
