    Hello glaser,
    thanks for posting this extremely rare bag. I have never seen them before!
    Is it stamped? Do you have the iron sandals too?

    These iron sandals were also used on board without the diving suit only with the Kleintauchgerät.
    These photos were taken on U-178 on march 19th, 1945.
    Maschinenmaat Ohlheiser goes into the water to seal up the "Steuerbord Regelzelle".
    He wears a Kleintauchgerät, weight chains and iron sandals.

    Yes, the zip fastener are watertight, because there are two zip fasteners:
    one outside and one inside with rubber strips in between.
