Ja, zehr gut.
Seems brand new, some minor storage wear, but not too shabby for 73' dated straps. Grey-coated aluminum hardware is light and sturdy. Intended to support an Urkel-style belt hanging somewhere between the chest and spare tire. Review by John (Posted on 9/27/2016)
A good price for Y-Straps
The Y-Straps I received were undated. By in large, the harness was in very good shape. There war some wear and 'crinkling' on the outward-facing side of the rear leather strap and some black polish 'overspray' on the forward metal clips, but the leather itself seemed to be quite solid. There's some stiffness to the material from storage, but nothing some Saddle Soap and TLC can't fix. Not a bad price for vintage BGS field gear! Review by Ross (Posted on 9/14/2016)
Basic Y-Strap Suspenders.
Upon inspection it's clear these indeed did see use but were taken care of. The one pair shows an old repair to the right-hand front strap and the rear back strap but the repair is one of quality. The second pair was in better shape and dated 1954 with nice thick leather and lots of room for adjustment. The Aluminum Hardware was a tad tarnished but in very good shape. Ready for attachment to a Belt and Ammo Pouches. These are an excellent buy in my humble opinion. Review by Bo (Posted on 6/1/2015)
BGS suspenders
I ordered these to complete my basic BGS field gear set, and overall they are very good, albeit not perfect condition at a fair price. Review by Andrew (Posted on 7/11/2014)
