Default Pant suspenders

I can't seem to keep my pants from slipping down over time, so I need some suspenders. I have searched around and found Hold-Ups, which are specifically designed for ski pants and won't damage them. But, I have not seen them sold locally here in Vancouver. Any other suggestions for suspenders?

You could try these:

Arrow Equipment and Pacific Arborist on the North Shore both sell saw pants and they may sell the suspenders separately or at least order them in for you.

I am trying to avoid anything with metal jaw clips, which could potentially dig in and rip the pants.

I replaced the metal clips with velcro sewn on the pants and to the suspender ends. Bomb proof and cuts weight.

That's definately a concern. I wasn't sure if you were talking more expensive rain pants or more durable hiking pants. If MacGyvering's an option, then the velcro sounds like a great idea, or you could PL-glue rubber pads to the insides of the metal clips (or rivet bike tubing). Or sew buttons onto the pants like saw pants have, and then use the style on the left.

Some good suggestions here. I might have a try with the button suspenders or velcro idea.

I've worn suspenders forever, never had issues that way. The jaws are smooth and rounded, I've tossed many a worn-out pair of pants with a perfect waistband.
They work great.

Been using suspenders for several years because of the same problems.


Always careful to note what effect the metal clips have on my hiking pants.

I sew two pieces of elasticized webbing to the front and back of the pants, and sew a tri-glide buckle to the back straps through which you put the front straps to adjust height. I use dental floss for the sewing as it's very strong. The trick is to wear the suspenders cris-cross so they don't slip off your shoulders. It's a rugged, light and low-tech solution that's worked for years.


Edit - this is only for winter (ski) pants. In summer I just wear a belt.
