    Hello,
    It is a M34 Tornister without fur fitted with saboted web Y-Straps. Quite unusual...

    I don't say that they are a copy, just a lot of backpacks was used after the war by scholars and due of that the support belts for ammopouches which was useful for the soldiers equipment, was cut as unnecessary for civil use.
    Usually soldiers use the Y-starps and there was special hooks for backpack, for fast attaching it to the Y-straps. The Y-straps is more useful combat equipment then backpack, which was a practically unused on the trenchlines
