East German UTV Combat Belt
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.
I can attest that these work very well with ALICE clips and probably anything else you can feed it through the loops of. Each end locks in a unique way where a top and bottom hook fits into your choice of a series of ribs along the inside of the belt in order to lock down the length. These ribs might also assist in keeping items on the belt in the same place instead of sliding back and forth like they would on a smooth leather belt. Appear to be brand new as well as built tough. Can't beat the price with a stick.
Super heavy duty
Review byIrina Verified Buyer
This belt is nearly indestructible- would be a great gun belt. One note. - for me at least it is too wide for regular jeans belt loops, but may fit tactical pants. Mine arrived in a new/nearly new condition. I especially love that the belt closure is not polymer but metal.
Inexpensive Pistol Belt
Review by53GR Verified Buyer
As a previous reviewer mentioned, it works well with ALICE Clips. However, I'm tempted to use it strictly as a pistol belt, in the way that some officers in Vietnam would have one pistol belt and one load-carrying belt, with the former hooked up to suspenders. There are no suspender rings on the belt and no way that I see to easily attach suspenders to it. However, you can attach mag pouches to the belt and then use the small grommets at the top to hook the LC-2 straps onto.
DONT HESITATE, JUST BUY IT.
Review byMichael Verified Buyer
This belt is beautiful, and totally old school bombproof construction. The quick release snap is made of metal and totally secure, much better than the plastic usgi gun belt clips.
Totally compatible with usgi alice clips.
Color is darker and better looking than the photo. The price is utterly insane.
The sizing can go up to over 45 inches.. So big folks can wear it too.
I still can't believe the price for the insane quality. Do yourself a favor and don't think twice. THIS BUY IS A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH.
