Great Shoulder Strap

Another quality surplus item from these guys. I bought it to replace the original strap on my Finnish Gas Mask bag which is half as wide. I’m gonna sew it on with #12 bank line after separating the twisted strands with my #14 sail needle from self reliance outfitters. Great price for a great item

General Purpose Straps Canvas

Excellent, just what I was looking for to improve the strap on my havor sack.

Nothing beats US surplus

I wanted a canvas General Purpose Strap for a piece of my gear. McGuire Army Navy had it. Received it super quick. Best of all, nothing beats the quality of US Surplus. I have heard people say that it was made by the lowest bidder. They forgot the most important point that from the Highest Bidder to the Lowest Bidder, all have to provide a product that meets the same strict Government Specifications!

The real deal!

Just great reliable equipment that can be easily adapted to many applications - and it's made in the USA at an affordable price.

Great for use as sling

Showed up in good condition. Buzzed off the metal hooks, added a little 550 cord to each end and makes a cool retro sling.
