Task Tools, Sheep Skin Lined Suspenders?


so I've been feeding me tool belt addiction by cruising the web. i stumbled upon TASK TOOLS. They offer some rather cool looking options with sheepskin linings. The one that jumped out at me were their suspenders. Task tools, sheep skin lined suspenders?-t77581.jpg
has anyone tried these and got any feed back? also was eyeing up the occidentals, but I'm leaning towards these...

Been wearing both the lined and unlined ones for a few years now.
Comfy enough, make sure you get your adjustments dialed in just right... They're a PITA to readjust on the fly.
Worth the money, they've served me well and saved me some discomfort.

Re: Task Tools, Sheep Skin Lined Suspenders?


i have had suspenders on bags since 1976.

could not live without them.

my current bags are the occidental beltless system.

had them since 2002. my other occidentals i had for about 25 years.

the sheepskin suspenders are great until they get sweaty, dirty and get pitch on them. same with the padded belts.

all the guys that had sheepskin eventually got rid of them.

best suspenders i had were a set of VERY soft pig skin. had them for over 20 years.

They look like Santa's tool belt suspenders.

Re: Task Tools, Sheep Skin Lined Suspenders?


wow, thanks for all the feed back guys. i currently have the occidental sheep skin belt liner and it doesn't ever make me too warm. my hope is that these suspenders will do much the same. I'll keep everyone posted! still waiting for KMS tools to call me back, they'd have to special order them for me, so i have no clue what they are even worth at this point.
