    Had this belt and braces set up a few months now....works well enough, stops the tshirt being pulled up and shorts down which happened with just a belt....one issue I image.jpg had was the shoulder straps rubbing on my neck so I've sewn some towel over the pads....feels a lot better, see how it goes tomorrow....used a little strip of the towel on the boab to prevent the squeegee rubber chaffing as well, going to find out if it works better than duct tape.

    Great idea that! It is annoying having to hoist my belt up all the time.
    What are those Unger Ergotec belts like? Nearly bought one but was worried it would be too bulky.

    The belt is webbing type material, on its own it wouldn't be stiff enough but after a bit if adjusting today I've got the boab attached round the a bit that's padded so that should be better. The boab is also modded with a cable tie to raise it a few inches...the straps stop all the weight that's attached dragging down like it used to but they did chafe my neck. image.jpg

    Hmm so with a bit of jiggary pokery! Same as most things then, you may need too adjust to suit your preference. Thanks Danfire

    I put handlebar bike rubbers in my boab to stop the rubber nicking against the plastic. Works great.

    Looks a good idea that. Thing I hate about them is the constant banging against my knee.

    Thing is mate it's just the right height for quickness. I did try it higher but didn't have that pull out smooth movement lol.

    I'm with you there...I raised the belt by adapting the straps and shortened the boab strap...the belt has gone down a bit...will see if I'm quicker on the draw tomorrow.
