FJ Y straps

Postby bigkie » Mon Sep 03, 2012 8:33 pm

Looking to get some sorted, but am in need of a heads up. As most of you who know me know i aint the smallst of builds so was wondering if anyone knows the height and chest size the y straps can fit up to? and if there is a place to get larger versions if i need to.
Thanks fellas :good:

I've got a set from Christian Paige -

these measure out at -
back strap, from o ring to hook - max 13"
front strap - max 23 1/2 "

not sure if that's any good for you. You do see some chinese e-bay sellers offering extra-long y straps, or you could use extra d-rings on your belt to make up the extra length...

Not uncommon to see a D ring added at the back even in wartime. It moves the yoke higher onto the shoulders.
That makes humping packs and A frames easier.
