The Austrians long continued using a 'Germanic' style of web harness long after the Second World War. These ones in particular were still being made right up into the 1970's! Although mostly functionally similar, the Austrians made a few improvements. The chief one is a badly needed bit of padding in the shoulders. Although leather webbing tends to last for ages, it isn't know for being comfortable! The rear strap and shape of the rings differ from the German versions, but otherwise function the same. So much so these will work with a Tornister pack, A-frame or even a East German Sturmgepack.
