These are great suspenders. They do what suspenders are supposed to do and they do it well. There isn't much to a suspenders outside of materials and craftsmanship and these suspenders are in no way lacking in those departments. They are velcro and are capable of snagging on thin base layers, but I typically do not have that problem. If it was something you are concerned with you could easily fashion some sort of sleeve to slip over the velcro to deny it access to your other articles of clothing. I would recommend these for anyone looking for an adaptable suspender that does not have any bulky or heavy hardware. 3 short bits of paracord and these suspenders and I can secure any part of pants with belt loops.

Works fine. Nothing to complain about. Could have an extension piece but not much of a complaint.

OR Suspenders are Awesome
If you are skinny and tall like I am then you probably don't fit quite right into Outdoor Research pants. They are either just right in the waist but too short or big in the waist and just right in the length. I went for correct length and these amazing suspenders hold them up comfortably for me. I have not put them to any rigorous use yet but they are well crafted from quality materials. The stitching looks to be quite secure as well. CAVEAT: If you are VERY tall, like over 6' 6", then these might not work the greatest as you will have to lengthen the velcro out to the max. I am 6' 4" and I have no problem. Just FYI.

Basic design and easy to adjust
Took it snowshoeing at Mt Ranier in a snowstorm with my Mountain Hardwear snowpants and it did its job of keeping the pants from sagging down thru the day of very deep snow. It doesnt stretch all that much, but its easy to adjust the velcro straps. I think the pant loops would break before the suspenders. Solid build.

So far so good
So far, so good....The suspenders do their job and hold my furio pants up when I need them to most, in the winter! They are relatively easy to adjust, although not as easy if your wearing your biggest winter gloves. One downfall, and this is being nit-picky, but the velcro on the suspenders attaches to everything. Especially if I'm wearing anything that uses high pile insulation.
