    +2 on what RC said above!

    All are good comments, but one thing was over looked. :eek: They are a pain in the azz when you have to do a poo poo. :fire: Especially in a public facility with cover garments. :mad:

    Just unhook the clips, do your business and hook em' back to the belt.

    I've used the Perry suspenders for years and HIGHLY RECOMMEND them. They are the only thing that prevents the embarrassment of my IWB holster from becoming an ankle holster.

    The thin material lets me wear them under a sweater. I have the "executive black," which looks nearly new after three years of wear.

    Suspenders are great for those of us with lower back problems. Of course, I wore suspenders in the 80s, in my teens, before I ever had back problems.
    I'm probably going to get some Perry suspenders to wear at work, and with a gun belt.

    Ok, suspender report... as I mentioned earlier in the thread, I ordered a pair of black Perry suspenders from workingperson.com (thanks RCModel) and received them shortly thereafter. I'm a deployed soldier in Afghanistan who wears a Beretta M9 on my belt everyday. The suspenders have worked great with the uniform. I wear them under the multicam blouse so I'm still "within regs" and it makes a huge difference.

    It's not just the M9 on my belt but also the stuff in my cargo pockets which want to help out gravity & which makes the constant belt-cinching annoying. With the suspenders, the pants staying up and comfortable problem is completely gone.

    I wear the Wilderness Instructor belt, by the way. I should have started wearing suspenders a long time ago. Now, I'll have to find a way of incorporating it into my civilian attire back home for CCW in a way that doesn't embarrass the wife :)

    Good to hear some positive reviews about the Mission belts used as gun belts. I needed to replace my old belts and ordered a Mission belt in black and one in brown. They're the 35mm and I am hoping they'll be heavy-duty enough. I'll have to look into some suspenders too, now. I did send them an e-mail asking where their belts are made and they gave me a vague answer about the components being made in "other countries," and assembled in the US, but they replied to my e-mail in about 3 minutes.

    My years in the Army left the discs in my back like a train wreck. Surgery helped some, but belts often either cause pain, make me lose the feeling in my legs, make it feel like my feet are burning, make it feel like bugs are crawling up and down my legs or a combination of these.

    When I wore my cellphone on my belt, I could not tell if it was on vibrate or my back was in a spasm. I had to touch the phone with my hand to tell.

    I was in a mild earth quake and thought it was my back spasms, but my wife in the other room felt it.

    Anyway, something to remove external pressure on my messed up spine may help.

    I have not tried suspenders, but I will now.

    For IWB try gluing a layer of suede to the side of the holster against your body. It give the holster some traction against your body so the belt and your pants aren't holding 100% of the weight. of you could try a crossbreed style holster. The larger surface area also helps support the weight of the weapon.
