For those who don’t have buttons on their stalking trousers, and/or don’t like the brass clips that hold braces onto your waistband, Harkila’s Tech Braces are an ideal solution.
These sturdy, broad shoulder braces use flat, polymer hooks to attach the adjustable braces to your already present trouser belt loops. There are two hooks on your hips at the front and one positioned in the small of your back. They stay in place securely throughout whatever challenges you throw at them. The design seems to be an impossibly simple solution to an often minor, yet a still irritating factor, as the clasp-type braces can be uncomfortable and can snag the seats in your vehicle.
The 47% polyester, 15% nylon and 38% spandex construction is available in willow green/shadow brown or red/brown colour options and both show distinct woven Harkila log-os.
The braces are faster to attach and remove from one set of trousers to swap to another. They are comfortable throughout the day and you never notice the flat hooks, which have a 15mm width to spread the load without wrinkling up the belt loops. The 40mm band width means that they sit comfortably under tension over your shoulders, without digging in. The stitching is neat and durable with no loose threads and without any metallic components, they are totally silent too.
