A proper Finnish parade belt. A very patriotic design, with an aluminium lion buckle, made of white & blue fabric. 

The clasp and adjustment is a traditional German type: the belt and a separate adjustment strap is pushed through the buckle, then the prongs are used to set the buckle to a suitable setting. The belt is about 5 cm wide.

Size info

The actual sizes are 5 cm shorter than the army markings, i.e. a "size 100" belt is only 95 cm long. The belt can be adjusted about 10 cm downwards from the actual size. The cause of this is probably good old military bureaucracy, which, at least in Finland, is traditionally performed by barely-literate and uneducated "officers".

Condition

Some used, all in good serviceable condition.

This belt is very good looking. Mine came in the original box it seemed a bit used with a few tiny scratches on the buckle but that wasn't a problem. The material used on the belt feels somewhat soft and that makes it really comfortable.

This is basically an aluminum M-22 buckle with a woven fabric belt. Mine was brand new, in the original box, and dated 1960. The detail on the buckle is amazing! If you wanted, you could put the buckle on a leather belt, and have yourself a lightweight M-22 replica (that is actually a real issue buckle!). You won't be disappointed!

I ordered two. The buckle is finely detailed, with a few scratches at worst. As the the time of my writing of this, it’s 4USD (on clearance from 8USD), which is a good deal for a piece of history.
