  • Alternative Duty Belts

    I work in my department's clothing & supply division and have been tasked with researching alternative duty belt designs and styles. For officers that may have back problems we are looking at the possibility of using a suspender duty belt system or any other options that are available. We currently issue a duty belt by Safariland model 87 / 2508. If anyone has any experience with a suspender system or another duty belt for officers with back problems you can reach me thru this site or direct at ajlewis@co.pg.md.us

    I use a pair of Orca Custom uspenders. They make a huge difference ans far as weight transferrence and load distribution.

    Even though I wear a nylon rig most days, the suspenders really shine ans make a fairly light rig even more comfortable.

    Another company, K&H, makes a good set of suspenders as weel. I believe that the Pierce County Sheriff's Office in WA issues them.

    The original trial proposal is available in pdf. format on the Orca site.

      The training officer for my department recommended this duty belt set up. It has extra support and a good weight distribution system without the use of suspenders. I just picked it up today so I don't have any in the field experience with it yet, however it felt good when I put all my gear on in the living room

        My sgt wears the same thing, says it really helps with his lower back pain.

          Perry Suspenders are excellent.
