Klim Deluxe Suspenders
Very stylish.... if suspenders are your thing
Ok, so maybe nobody actually finds suspenders all that stylish, they are more of a function and form over looks kinda thing. These do their function (holding up pants) very well. I use the clips, they use hold the fabric of my over-pants quite well. They will occasionally slip, Klim designed these so they wont damage whatever they are clamping and as a side-effect they don't hold quite as aggressively as a toothed clamp. Overall, I'd prefer these to toothed clamps. The straps are pretty comfortable, just don't clamp them too centrally in the front or they might bite into your neck a little, space them out more in front to avoid that. These can accentuate some shoulder/back pain if you have bad posture, as they do pull down on the shoulders.

they keep my pants up
Tough to find suspenders for women; these fill the bill although the adjusters sit next to my neck because I have a short torso. I bought them because I believe Klim produces a solid product - these suspenders reinforce that belief. I am a 5'5" woman (165 lbs) and these suspenders fit (on the highest adjustment), are somewhat comfortable (once I'm on the road I forget about the adjusters sitting next to my neck) and, most importantly, they never let go of my Rev'It pants!

Good quality, but perhaps best suited for Klim pants
I purchased these for use with one of my four zip-together two-piece leather riding suits, as I have lost some weight and the pants tend to droop, even though they are zipped to the jacket..
On one of my other suits, I have used generic snowboard suspenders in an H-pattern, and this worked well. Knowing Klim makes good riding gear, and wanting to try Y-pattern suspenders, I decided to give these a shot for use on another (identical model) set of leathers.
The sliders and elastic all seem to be of very high quality. The design is very good, providing comfort over the shoulders.
The suspenders are "universal" in that they have removable clips for normal pants, and dedicated hooks for Klim pants.
The only downside is that the "universal" clips are not quite aggressive enough to provide for a very secure hold. While there's no chance they can damage your pants (unlike the aforementioned snowboard suspenders with "jaw" clips) the Klim clips are just on the wrong side of gentle vs secure. Not a deal breaker, just a consideration.
Good product and recommended for those with the correct connectors.

It's nice the straps split halfway up my back because it helps keep them in place. Option to use the clamps or remove them to attach the tabs to loops in your pants. Elasticity gives for easy motion but is firm - nice balance.

Good quality, simple and strong. works perfect with the heavy rally-adventure pants.

even with something as simple as suspenders klim once again shows why they are the best. the construction is bomb proof. the clasps hold extremely well. however, I'm having loops sewn into my pants so I can use the integrated loop system.

Not so sure
I've tried these a couple times using the clasps and they seem to work ok at best. I think under and real stress like offroad riding which was my intension, the clasps will come undone.

Good but overpriced
I bought these because I wanted the versatility of both the clamp and loop connection for different pants. They are fine for this; but are pretty pricey. I could have likely found a more economical equivalent if I'd taken the time to shop around.
