    the kind to hold up my riding pants.
    Any recomendations? i prefer hot pink or polka dot but black would suffice.
    Thanks in advance,

    Big +1

    I bought a pair from them for my Klim Traverse pants. I like that they clip to the side and are kind of hidden when your jacket is unzipped. They do a great job.

    Just be aware that if you wear red suspenders other riders will assume you ride a Guzzi. Red suspenders + white beard and you must ride something Guzzi from the 70's.

    Me too. Side mounts are more comfortable and don't catch on things. The down side is they really bring out the moobs if you're so inclined.

    Just an FYI in case you're looking for these from overseas vendors, lots of the rest of the English-speaking world refers to these as "Braces" (like the things you put on your teeth). They generally seem popular with older riders who wear heavy leather trousers and want something that'll hold the weight of them up, without needing to be so tight around the stomach.

    Ditto. They are overkill for jeans, but they are great for heavy over pants.

    I have BMW Street Guard 3 pants and the BMW suspenders work great on them.
    The whale foreskin material is just a bonus.

    Hey Miguelitro

    :thumb+1 on these Klim suspenders. I was having some "pants on the ground" issues with my RP3 pants(they are heavy). Looked at Walmart and every other cheap option but nothing was the right quality. These Klim suspenders are a quality, heavy duty product and solved the issue.

    Carhartt makes excellent heavy duty, long lasting, suspenders. About $12.
