It is a seldom seen piece of equipment, congrats for its condition and thanks for sharing.
If i'm not mistaking, the markings BA in the small octogon indicates a Luftwaffe item.

Thanks! It is in superb condition. I will post photos of the pack itself. I intend to have these straps reproduced to complete my other packs. NH
I often wonder why the roller buckle was used on some items and not others.....
these straps, zelt straps, feldflasches but NOT helmets or gamaschens......it was a better friction-less system that did not stress the leather as much as non-roller buckles...
