7174 TUFF Tactical 4 Point Duty Suspenders
Great Under LBV
Satisfied with the suspenders. They are low profile so I don’t notice them under my LBV. I had the back defense type before and liked those but they were way too bulky (especially with the chest strap) when we switched to the LBV and I could no longer wear them over the soft body armor. I gave those away to a friend in a dept. that still wore traditional shirts. Even if you don’t wear LBVs I’m sure these will get the job done.
As a paramedic,, I was tired of regular suspenders "popping" at inconvenient times and even more frustrated with them breaking at even less ideal times. TUFF suspenders have eliminated the weak points and created a positive locking system that works. The belt keepers are sturdy nylon with two, strong buttons holding each down. While the suspenders themselves are not elastic, adjusting the size is so easy that it can be done on the fly. Even though they're easy to resize when you want to, the system holds it's size in every other situation I have come across, including getting snagged when squeezing through a tight space, or when tampered with by mischievous co-workers. They have held up well, the only issue I have is that they aren't available in other colors. Highly recommend. Would suggest using a sturdy, nylon belt for best results.
Works great. Takes all the weight off my hips so I can loosen my belt and I’m not having to pull up my pants all of the time. Only drawback is that they don’t come in gray.
