The East German Army at its peak was one of the largest military forces in the world. With a constantly growing force there were changes and enhancements made to field gear, uniforms, and weapons on a consistent basis.

One of the very last enhancements to the East German Army was the issuance of the UTV combat set. Depending upon which reference material you use the UTV set was either an experimental or third generation set. We don't have a definitive answer so let's agree that it was simply the last combat set ever released by the East German Army prior to reunification.

sturdy belt
Review by Lazy Glenn
Adjusts to size easily, i quickly set up two belts to hold gear / mags , for two different rifles for under $6 ! Appears brand new. Only down side, fits my 34" waist with room to spare, but a 42" as stated might require some modifications. I am glad I bought these.

A great price for a great belt
Review by Ross
"New Old Stock" is the best way to describe the belt I received. The colors on the fabric are bright and crisp, and the thick green paint on the metal reflects only minor storage wear. This belt is of the British and Belgian 'hook and slot' style of adjustment, rather than the American 'hook and eyelet' style, making for a much more accurate size adjustment. You really can't beat this price for a heavy duty belt!

Typical commie stuff
Review by ben
Primitive, tough and ugly. Like most commie gear. Not for big boys. The only concerns in the function of this belt are the cotton-ish belt rotting, and the buckle is sorta thin metal- don't use it as a pry bar. Good value for the price.

Standard P37 style belt at 1/8 the price!
Review by seth
Works fantastically with british ww2 and belgian postwar gear! Though not historically accurate, if you want to use it for airsoft it should be fine. Save yourself $20 and buy this instead of an original!

East German UTV Belt
Review by Customer
As with other East German surplus items, this is extremely well made and cheap - about the best quality to value available. Will work great as a stand alone belt &/or with the East German backpack sold here & elsewhere. Like most East German surplus, this is in brand new condition despite its age. No signs of prior use. I'd have bought two, but probably won't wear out even one of these belts.

Durable cool vintage top quality!
Review by Joe
Ordered 2 and was pleasantly surprised at the many uses this Sturdy belt offors. Suspenders, where?? Would be cool to find someday, fit my Belgian Combat trousers beautify without hurting buttons on pants, can expand to about Max to fit over outer light coat/parka etc, can't wait to get more commie gear, stamped sheet metal buckle basic but reliable a plus. No grommets but nylon high tensile strength can stand up to all camp/bugout needs. Only wished I found this site sooner.

Eastern Block Quality lives on
Review by Edwin
I've had the chance to have these fine belts in my hands and I have to say I am impressed. The East Germans, though they copied a lot of kit from the fallen Wehrmacht, did something pretty original, at least compared to the rest of the Eastern Block in making their harness and belt system. This was the modern equivalent to the ALICE gear (the US was making and performs pretty much the same (including pouch adaptability but you want Strichtarn pouches to go on this, it just makes sense). But I say you MUST look for the suspenders that go with it.

Definitely the cheapest you'll find around.

Good Buy
Review by daniel
Well made, never issued not even chipped paint on the buckle. Well worth picking a couple up. As others said it will accept any alice gear.

The only bummer for me was it is not possible to fit the buckles through loops of my leather makarov holster. I like wearing the flap holster when out busting brush on my property. So my old grey East German belt will soldier on. By no means a knock on this belt. Would love to find the rain drop makarov holster to go with this belt.
