I could just stop the review right there. But that would be pretty boring and not all that informative. Before experiencing the wonder of Treeforts, I was using a sketchy pair of suspenders purchased from a local logging outfitter. So far, I've had about 20 days on my pair, and they've been great. The velcro height adjustment is super dope and very easy to use. If you're doing a combo of pow and park in one day, it takes about 2 seconds to dial in your preferred sag for each endeavor. The velcro adjustment is pretty sick, but the chest strap is really where it's at. Losing a suspender into your sleeve sucks, especially mid jump line or filming the perfect T2B. The chest strap can be moved up and down to accommodate your preferred pant height as well.
Most people say that you get what you pay for, and when I'm paying $50 for suspenders they better be on point. I found that the back clips would occasionally pop off of my pants when bending over or grabbing nose. They are a bitch to clip back on totally blind, and if you get a friend to help people will look at you funny. I never had this problem with my old suspenders, but they were meant to hold up to the abuse of loggers so I may have set my expectations too high. And let's be real here, $50 for suspenders is pretty crazy in the first place. I fully support companies who produce their goods in the USA, but these cost way too much. The materials for these cost about $10-15, and the stitching is very simple. In the future, I would like to see the price of these go down a bit. For now, Treefort has a patent on the velcro suspender so we are stuck paying $50.
Overlooking the high price tag and questionable pant clips, these are the best suspenders out. If you have an extra $50, you may as well buy the best pant suspension system money can get. Plus all the pros use they and you will look hella core af.
