    Default Soviet y-strap ?

    Guys could please tell me what exacly are those straps ? Looks like soviet Y-straps excepte the fact that are bit shortened and made of canvas ( similar to cloth used to make gasmask bags or ammo bags ) instead of webbing. Did anyone of you met with this kind of Y-straps made in this particular way ? Are those factoryClick image for larger version.

    Y-straps are still a great unknown. These appear to have started life as Vesch-Meshok Straps.

    Now I know why these straps looks so familiar to me ( thought that I have seen them somewhere ). Does it look like strap from wartime or postwar meshok ?

    On some Meshok, additional straps are not sewn to the main strap and can just be slipped off. These Y straps seem to be made from the main strap like this...
