Derrick, the item of clothing is indeed a Bundeswehr "Snow smock" as Ade as stated, ...as for the straps, unless marked, I have no idea..they do seem to have "roller" style buckles, which hint to a German military style....so they could be either BW or DDR.
Prost ! Steve.
"The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)
the official term is schneetarn...
variations of the Bundeswehr camo
