*Note* Some of the bags have small tears in them made by the pegs/poles. As far as we can tell, the whole set is unissued but this has been caused from years of storage & transfers. See last photo for an example
Chances are if you are reading this you already have or are planning on buying a 'Zeltbahn' shelter half (or several). These sets are what the East German Army issued along with their zeltbahn's to erect them into a shelter.
The set comes with 15 steel pegs, 10 poles, 5 cords and a neat rain camo bag to fit them in. Each pole locks together with each other to create a higher ceiling to mount on to (these are fairly wobbly but should stiffen with the right tensioning of cords, zeltbahn etc). The pegs are made from steel and have a curved shape allowing for more surface area grip in soft ground. Can't say the cords are anything exciting to write about but they will help straighten your shelter out all the same. A neat little set for those East German bloc fanboys & collectors out there!
