Bought on strength of reviews and good product description and photos: While these braces are not cheap, they are more than worth the money.
Well packed, well presented, the quality instantly makes itself known on removal from the card packing. As a big bloke, I had to run the straps out to their limit but after a whole days wearing ( around 12 hours ), not once did I have a ping-off were a clip gave way, and I was quite mobile,including getting into and out of a smallish car which is the primary place I usually ping one clip off swinging my not inconsiderable bulk behind the wheel.
In black they look quite cool and are a country mile more comfortable than the range of work braces where 90% of the strap is 1000 denier Cordura.
In short, I am going to immediately buy another pair of these and lay them away in the sock drawer for later: they are THAT good.
Delighted, smashing piece of kit.
