The Bundeswehr parade belt looks like a relic from the times when the German bootheels last clacked around Europe. Complete with a metal buckle with the national eagle and the motto of the Democratic Germany: "Links Zwei Drei Vier!" or something. These are getting harder and harder to acquire! If you want one, we suggest taking aktion pretty quickly, ja!
Apparently still used during the suspicious Zapfenstreich marches, the Bundeswehr parade belt is a proper thick & wide (5 cm / 2") indestructible item. We gotta love the German design - many other countries' combat belts aren't this sturdy!
Two different buckle adjustment types: two prongs inside the buckle into a suitable pair of holes in the tongue. Some belts have a simpler sliding adjustment, which is stepless and can be adjusted down as much as you like. We do not differentiate.
Sizes are the maximum lengths of the belts. These can be adjusted about 12 cm downwards (the two-prong-buckle types). Because Men of Girth have more money, larger sizes cost more. However it's still a good deal for a belt of such impeccable quality.
In used, but good serviceable condition. This will probably outlast the user. This lot was dug out from the deepest levels of our supplier's warehouse. It's very possible these won't be seen again once this batch is gone.

- jos tuo soljen kiiltävyys häiritsee, voi sitä värjätä varovasti "liekittämällä"

Jos suunnittelet tästä vyötä johonkin muuhun solkeen tulet pettymään.
Itsessään laadukas vyö.
The belt looks similar to the pre-ww2 military belts (Czech/Finnish/German) but is 5 mm wider, so you can't use other buckles. Just so you know.
Other than that, it's a good belt.

If not the best
- why a minus?
These belts have last (many) life times
Their original size
; mind you : a 1/4 mm difference would not pass DE MilSpec but these belts (all of those 100 cm i ordered online were almost all 70cm ... my waist was 90 cm so training was the only way to get the belt to fit. Again blame time and people who customized their belts, not Varust. In the original belt design of this BW Parade belt is a+5 cm / -5cm adjustement.

received one with the two prong buckle UNISSUED. Brand new and never used.
A 5cm large, thick piece of leather with an indestructible buckle.
Smart and Very sturdy.
Great belt !!

Omani soljessa oli jotain vihreää väriä, (tussin?) mikä kylläkin lähti juuresharjalla ja lämpimällä vedellä pois.
Täydet pisteet laadulle ja ulkonäölle, ja eikun polttamaan Rovaniem... siis eräilemään!

It is really wide (5cm), does not fit the BW flecktarn pants.
Buckle looks very nice though, after I'll get it cleaned up a bit.

It barely fits the Särmä Cargo Trousers, since it is really wide.
Ordered a second one for a friend, the 90cm one this time. It came in almost mint condition. 2 Prong system this time. Came with some corosion on the metal.
Thanks Varusteleka for providing us with belts that will last more than a lifetime.
Also, it says "Unity, Justice, Freedom" on the buckle.
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.
