I found these at a site called www.keepshooting.com. They look like they might be plausible "close enough for airsoft" German suspenders at a very reasonable price. ($7.95 and $9.95) The Y straps appear to be fabric. The border guard suspenders are leather, but are much simpler than the army strap.
I have a few sets of the First offering you shared and found the materials in the webbing to be a light grey NYLON material. I dyed mine black using a spray paint designed for plastics and they have held their color quite well. Though far from ideal they work fine for MY purposes. Over a smock with addition load bearing items and caked in dirt they enhance the fleeting at a glance through the forest realization that the person you have spotted is a German. For close up encampment interaction they are probably unacceptable for most. The leather ones probably show more promise but nothing you could do to them would appease the stitch Nazis.
Thanks for sharing. For those of us tasked with clothing a dozen folks plus these costume quality items are absolutely worth knowing about.

Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
