If you’re looking to take some weight off your hips and save your lower back from strain, a suspension system is the way to go. Three options from Occidental fit the style and requirements of your rig, and all are made in the USA with American-made materials.
Leather Work Suspenders
Hand-crafted from thick bridle leather, these suspenders work beautifully with a full-leather tool belt, with large shoulder pads and a quick-release sternum strap for stability. Fully adjustable, these suspenders include the attachment loops that snap onto any 3” tool belt with heavy-duty spring clips. For the Adjust-to-Fit systems, D-rings are already installed and the suspenders clip right on. The rich oxblood tone of this leather will age handsomely.
Combining traditional elements with engineered comfort, the Stronghold Suspenders add a comfortably padded and contoured yoke to the strength and durability of leather belting. The yoke is lined with a wicking fabric to keep sweat from building up on your back and shoulders.
The Stronghold Suspenders are highly stable and distribute weight evenly across the shoulders and upper back. A spring clip on the sternum strap makes suiting up a quick process, and the D-ring at the back is handy for hanging up the rig at the end of the day (not to be used as a safety connection). Chest-level front pockets are for stashing pencils or clipping on attachments.
An excellent combination of hand-worked leather, heavy-duty hardware, and technical materials. Leather loop connecters for a 3” belt are included.
Stronghold Light Suspenders
The Stronghold Light Suspenders are the ultra-light option, made with industrial nylon and plastic hardware for when ounces count. If your rig is already weighing you down, there’s no sense adding bulk for much-needed comfort. The yoke distributes weight evenly, is lined with moisture-wicking fabric, and has two front pockets for stashing pencils or clipping on attachments. The nylon webbing has bartacks a-plenty, and leather attachment loops slide on to any 3” tool belt.
