NVA Webbing belt, gray, surplus
East German grey field uniform belts with a grey-painted metal buckle. This is technically a combat belt, but it can be used equally well as a trouser belt. It is freely adjustable and 45 mm wide.
Strongly in the spirit of World War 2, the East German NVA based their combat webbing on the traditional system consisting of a belt and Y-straps. However, because we are talking about East Germany after all, they made it all from slippery nylon-like Dederon, making the usual "disintegration-when-donned" and "sailing pouch" problems of the WW2 kit even worse.
In conclusion: while the kit was quite tough, it was still a piece of shit. If you want to experience it, we occasionally have the components on sale.
Our sales pitch is that these are actually pretty good trouser belts. The buckle won't open on its own and the adjustments seem to hold well.
The lengths seem to vary a bit. Most seem to be around 110 cm long.
Most of these are unissued, some are used, some might be a bit dirty after decades of loving storage.

If you can't get your buckle to sit flat, try taking the belt off of it and reversing it.
