Equipment Strap, 20 mm, Reproduction


Category: Tag:


Reproduction of the Finnish 20 mm leather equipment strap that saw wide use during the Winter War and Continuation War.

This strap is meant primarily for pre-war backpacks, like the m/28 or m/37. It is wider and a bit thicker than the 16 mm strap, so it might be harder to get through some wartime strap loops, like the ones on the model Ulvila backpack.

The strap is 20 mm wide and 90 cm long with a nickel plated steel roller buckle and plenty of holes for adjustment. Handstitched with white waxed linen thread. The strap is cowhide with two color options.

Leather straps were one of the most useful items a soldier could have. They were used for attaching the blanket, mess tin, boots, overcoat or other things to the backpack, but also for attaching things onto a bicycle, fixing shoes, or just making items pack tightly.
