Hunting with a belt can often be simply frustrating. The weight on your hips can be especially uncomfortable and the constant adjustment can be maddening. But many hunters choose to tolerate them or hunt with nothing to hold their pants up.

Some hunters prefer to wear suspenders on their hunts instead of belts because they appreciate that the weight is placed on your shoulders, and they generally make carrying a pack more comfortable.

Some manufacturers of hunting pants create hunting pants with suspenders included in the design.

Pants held up with suspenders are quite comparable to hunting bibs, though suspenders benefit from being lighter and less bulky than hunting bibs.
