Customer Reviews

Great, if used properly
Review by P

These are a definite improvement over the old-style M40/M42 leather Y-straps. These are lightweight webbing with aluminum (not steel) hardware. They have offset D-rings on the back to make anything attached there hang straight down (the old school ones splay out in the "Y" shape). Most important there are 4 tings on the front, the old M40s don't have any. Mine was in very good/excellent condition.
If you are wearing the load bearing belt at the proper height - Above the natural waist by several inches - these are long enough for most folks. They don't have any extra on me at 6' however. Really tall individuals over 6' should look for something longer.
Nice but too small for me

I'm 6 foot 1 and there is no way that these will fit me as they are. What I'm going to do is use the hardware from these and add my own material to make a set that will fit. At the price, they are worth it for the hardware alone.
Same boat on size

Extensions are required for maybe 5'5" and over. Old cotton weave in decent condition. My guess would be these metal buckles/ hooks looped behind and under a waist belt for a quick detach set up. Think "improvise here". They are surplus....
