Rated 4 out of 5 Heavy duty but stiff
There is no question that these suspenders are red and heavy duty. The clasps are strong and do not slip out of the jeans I wear. The main issue I have with them is they are very stiff and had been folded when shipped. They don't seem to form to the shoulders as easily as I expected. I have hung them up with heavy jeans and with some weight in the pockets. I hope this will straighten them out.

Great quality. Strong enough to hold up a pair of jeans with full pockets. I only wish they came in more colors.

These suspenders do their job well, keeping the pants up. The only reason they don't get an excellent is that the metal clasps have to be angled very precisely to catch.

Theses suspenders are fine. I purchased the X and they barely fit. They need to be available in an XXL size. I am 6 feet tall and that is not excessively tall by current standards.

The first pair I received were defective--straps were much too short, making the suspenders unfit to wear. (I should not be charge for returning this pair!). The replacements were fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by edXMe Good with reservations
I read the reviews for this item and went ahead and bought it but, with reservations. For some, there would be a problem with no elasticity in these suspenders so, during the day, I am constantly pulling them back onto one shoulder or the other. If only LLB could get the same quality but with elasticity.
It is certainly better than having the back clip(s) come loose and hitting you in back of the head.
Because of the quality of which I have had experience, I bought them anyhow from LLB because of their reliability and their return policy. But, until I find better, I am OK with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Swampstumbler Keeps my game bag up and me in the game
I have a belted game bag that I carry water bottles for my dogs and game that I shoot. Slogging through the woods and alder swamps for grouse requires a lot of twisting and turning. I attached the suspenders to the belt and now carry weight around my shoulders and don't have the game bag sagging down any longer. I also like the snap feature which will pop open when the suspender snags a limb. I simply re-snap and keep on treking which is far better than being tangled in the brush. I have used them on my britches too and they keep my legs from chaffing as well when I walk 10 or more miles a day in the woods looking for grouse. My britches stay up and I can concentrate on listening for flushes instead of stopping to adjust my pants.

I have been a Bean customer for fifty-one years. I keep coming back because your goods have quality. I have suspenders from you that are old enough to vote. However, in recent times the snap-on gadget that allows the suspender's length to be altered has failed after a short time. (current ones OK) I think high quality requires continued attention on the part of your quality control staff. it seems to me the firm has moved a bit in the direction of general advertising and multiple sales points and a bit away from letting your products tell their own story. I remember well the days when there was one store, (24/7), one flyer, and more outfitter's material. more to my liking

Rated 4 out of 5 by ProfSW Heavier and stiffer than expected
Well made but very stiff and bulky. No instructions on care, cleaning, etc, Metal clasps are very rugged, but the paint chips off easily, and I have no idea what the metal is or if it will rust.
