Do people wear belts? - Page 2

post #31 of 52
Belts and suspenders worn together add that extra margin of safety. You can't be too careful out there.

I got myself a snazzy snowboarder belt with a chrome buckle...so the answer is yes.

I don't get the point of suspenders. Belts are easier, less lame and more secure. Just tighten your belt at the waist (or below) and your hip bones should keep your pants up

Really, the only excuse for suspenders is if you want to wear your pants so that the waist sits slightly below your butt cheeks--a belt wouldn't really work at that level. (Actually saw this on line at Whistler last year, with polka dot boxers).

Used to have pants with suspenders but they weren't bibbed, i liked them a lot b/c they were somewhat stylish yet kept snow outa my pants. out grew them though. now i have pants with a bet loop and just started using a belt. I use my nylon wading belt from fly fishing. It works real well/no issues when its wet (bleeding colors or anything) and its light weight.

I recently started wearing a belt after years of suspenders. I have alterior motives for wearing one. Besides being fashionably correct, mine is used to strap an insulin pump to.

My newest pants have "integrated" suspenders and no belt loops, so I don't wear a belt.
My older (the infamous pink ones) pants do have integrated suspenders and belt loops so I used to wear both (the belt was a modern imitation of military model)
My late 80 early 90 fluo pants had only belts loops but I wore suspenders as well for extra "safety"...



I just noticed...1910 posts...I'm in the "Belle Epoque" times!

I wear Marker ski pants.

The belt prevents an unfortunate pre-release situation.

My husband buckles me into a chastity belt when I hit the hill, since I look so freaking hot in my ski pants. . . he doesn't want to risk any sort of irresistible married cougar cheating situation.

Is that what you call those kids? Chastity and Belt?

No

Nope no belt for me. My Burtons have belt loops but also an elastic.. they fit fine and don't fall off. I hate belts.. one more thing to get in the way..

I wear a belt---, modest sliding style buckle, you cannot see it...

Why? Snaps do not work when you bend over 100000 times picking up kids who have fallen. To help with this, I took my pants to the drycleaner and had hooks installed, it helps. I wear the belt to give the hooks a hand--don't want them tearing out.


32" waist. No fat boy here. Belts invented because there is a need.

I just wear a basic leather belt like I do with jeans

I use one of those equipment straps you can buy at REI to fasten things to the bottom of your back pack. It cost about 3 bucks, you can cut to size, it is totally adjustable and it has a snap lock on the buckle just like on your back pack belt so it does not come undone. Also, since it is nylon and doesn't stretch, it doesn't matter if it gets wet. I got the idea from my backpacking clothing, most of which has similar belts sewn in to the waistband.
