    Default Rucksack - straps ?

    Here is my "new" rucksack. Has some wear and tear, but it I like the used combat look.
    My question is - how common were the rucksack straps that look liked modified y-straps ?

    Thanks !

    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    I may be mistaken, but I always thought that this style attached directly to the Y-Straps, I didn't know there were special straps provided for these...
    Nice representative example, well done!

    They are pretty common IMHO. As Glenn said they are for the Y-straps, unless this is a variant i don't know about. Nice pack. It's a tropical pack. Price range 100-200$.

    +1 on the Y-straps. For mountain troops?

    Hi,

    Thanks for all replies. I know the rucksack will "work" with y-straps and a-frame.
    The straps I am thinking about are like the ones pictured.


    Thanks.

    Hello,
    You need a pair of leather or web Y-straps for this Rucksack.
    It is not a mountain troops Rucksack. The Mountain troops Rucksack has attached carrying straps as mountain troops were not issued with Y-straps, design is also slightly different.
    Thanks
