Not what I thought I would receive
From the illustration I was lead to believe that I would receive a complete unit. Suspenders, clips to hold it to the belt along with the belt. A complete system. Yet all I received was the suspenders. So it appears that I have to purchase items in order to use this product. Not at all what I thought.
ConsNot a complete System

Good for the money
Decent set of suspenders for the cost. I'm using them without the armorskin outer vest (but still an external carrier) and they still work just fine. My only gripe is the fronts like to wander out from under my vest. Passing them through my shirt epaulets helps a little but I still gotta push them back under my vest from time to time.

A Back saver!!
Takes all the weight of your duty belt and gear off your hips. No more hip flexor issues. Your posture fixes itself and you stand up nice and straight. Shouldn't have waited 15 years for these. A must for all.
ProsComfortable helps save the hips and back.
ConsNot all departments allow you to wear them. Not sure why you'd want your troops comfortable.

A true back saver
I ordered the Blauer suspenders to help with the lower back and hip pain that comes from the duty belt. After one shift of wearing them, I had no back or hip pain. I rated it four stars due to the loops included. They are thin plastic, and don't fit leather belt keepers good. I had to fold the keepers a little to get them in. Blauer sends a total of eight loops, six small, and two lager ones. They should have the larger ones as an option for those who can't use nylon keepers.
ProsFit good, works as advertised with the armor skin uniform system.
ConsKeeper loops are too small and don't look too strong

Far from the best.
The benefits are quickly outweighed by the flaws. I purchased this particular pair of suspenders as it was designed to work with the rest of the Armorskin system, that seems to give it no added benefit, as the carrier could easily accommodate just about any set of suspenders with similar strap positioning, and anything else could just be worn underneath without running them through he carrier at all.
ProsQuick release clips
ConsQuick release clips break easily Shoulder pads have no means of staying in place, even when utilized with the armor skin ballistic carrier.

Armorskin suspension system
I have seen a few of these in the past but didn't really consider them as viable. I finally thought I'll try one. Price is cheap enough that if it don't work I'm not out much and I'll just resell it. All I can say is they work and work well. The biggest issue with LE officers is lower back problems. Due to all the weight on our waists the hips just don't Handle weight like that very well and over time go out of alignment which causes massive back pain on our part. Well I tell you, I've been using this for about 3 weeks now and other than having a little time to get used to them the weight is off my waist and on my shoulders now. I haven't had any back pain in the last couple weeks. The belt sits a little different. Just a bit higher but no more Weight on my hips. Any of you LE that have an external carrier should try them. Definitely worth the money.
ProsEasy to wear Very low profile Almost undetectable with armor on Affordable Well built Durable
ConsOnly comes in 1 color so may not work with uniforms other than Dark blue or black.

They work great
The suspenders work great. After getting past the learning curve of not having worn suspenders in so long, they are a nice addition to my kit. Thanks.

No more hip pain...
A buddy of mine mentioned these after I was complaining about hip pain. I went to the chiropractor and got adjusted then threw these puppies on. No more hip or back pain. It's like my belt floats now. It's great! I will say it took a couple shifts to get used to the new weight distribution but it's was really no big deal. I recommend them for sure.

Shop around, better options out there
Quick release clips are VERY cheap plastic, don't hold their form well and come apart easily. After unclipping them once, I had to rig them to hold. Also, does not include keepers, it's a struggle to get my current keepers to close with the harness clips in place. Aside from this, works well for its intended purpose. Cut my back pain in half. Just wish id have gone with a different brand
ProsReduces back/hip pain. Cushioned pads for shoulders
ConsVery cheap "quick release" clips- thin plastic does not secure Does not include keepers designed for extra space, difficult to use standard keepers

Good for 10 days...
Worked well for 10 days until one of the clasps broke. One side broke off but still could be used until the other part snapped. Activity level - working in the courts. If it doesn't hold up here I don't trust it working patrol.
ProsHeld belt in place, easy to set up and felt comfortable under the outer armor.
ConsCheap, fragile clasps which holds everything together.

You should order the regular height. I am just under 6'2" and ordered the tall and they are a little too long for my torso! But when you get the system you are absolutely going to love it.... no weight on your hips, your shirt stays tucked in... Fantastic system!

I wondered the same when I ordered. I'm only 5'9 and got the regular size. Works just fine, very comfortable and a game changer for the duty belt.

Get the regular size. The tall in the past was too large for me and I'm 6 foot. The regular is fine with plenty of room for adjustment as needed.

If by outer carrier you mean plate carrier only, then yes, as long as your carrier can be adjusted to properly fit over the soft armor.

from Southside, Alabama
Yes. They are designed to be worn under the outer carrier. They un-clip where they attach to the keepers. There are U tube videos from Blauer that show how they work with vest carrier.

You stated that with some effort this would work with smaller belts. I plan on having it on a 1.75 tacbelt. What would make this not work with that? I plan on having this under a vest, is there a reason not to?
This rig will attach to your belt keepers on your belt. So as long as you have the correct size for your belt, the rig will attach without problem.

What belt is meant to work with this system? The description makes it seem like it comes with the harness and belt, but from other Q&A answers, it seems that this is not the case.
This system can work with any full size duty belt. This would connect to your belt via belt keepers on your duty belt.

What size belt will it fit, will it fit the 2.25 duty belt ?
This is designed to work with a full size duty belt but we feel with a bit of effort you could get it to work on smaller size belts as well.

Is it just the suspenders for sale ? why does it talk about a vest carrier ? The description leads you to believe you are getting some type body armor carrier
i do apologize but the description is off on this item. this is part of the armorskin system which does have a vest that can work in conjunction with the suspenders but the vest is not included with this item.
