Belgian M-1971 suspenders, surplus
Copied rather directly from the well proven American M-1956 design, these suspenders are compatible with most of 20th century US made webbing.
Before the M-1971 kit came along the Belgians fielded WW2 vintage British Pattern 1937 kit, alongside domestically made copies of the same stuff. With the cold war hotting up even Belgium needed to update: the M-1971 webbing consisted of these suspenders, a US style belt with a British style bucke, ammo pouches, a US style entrenching tool etc. All pouches were made from rubber, as was the style at the time, to be easily decontaminated after the atom bombs would start falling.
Fully adjustable, with hooks for attaching to the belt, buttpack or magazine pouches. The upper back features an attachment point for US M1910 "wire hanger" pouches.
These are all in pretty damn nice shape, most seem to be unissued, but with the odd used ones in the mix we are selling these as used. Even the unissued ones have laid in storage for a looong time, which make them a bit grubby. All are still in top shape and ready for use!

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
