Of all field equipment and particularly that related to that of the tropical environment, any item of the Luftwaffe blue/grey equipment must rank amongst the rarest. This is a pair of field worn, heavy weight canvas Y straps with D ring attachments. The overall fade, pattination remains consistent throughout. These at some time have been a little modified by having the front hook elements cut away. This has clearly been done at the time by the soldier who preferred to use them in this style. These would look outstanding in conjunction with a luftwaffe field equipment or tropical soldier display. The first pair we have ever owned and only the second pair we have ever encountered. The other pair being illustrated upon page 40-41 of the excellent book of Ausrustung Volume 1.
