Winner: The extremely low-tech Perry suspenders have been the big winner so far this hunting season. I am plagued by hunting pants that don't stay up, or, perhaps, by anatomy that will not hold up pants. Suspenders are the answer, but the clip-on kind come undone in the field and are a distraction, and I'm not sewing suspender buttons onto all my hunting pants. Enter the Perry suspenders, which have sturdy plastic clips that hook onto your belt and remain attached as they as supposed to, while performing the vital task of holding your pants up. I saw them on one of the old guys at my gun club, and though you should never take fashion cues from old guys at gun clubs, I saw right away that the Perrys were the solution to my problem. My pants stay up, my suspenders stay hooked, and it's all good, except that my younger son, who is a sharp dresser, is deeply offended by them. "Those hook onto your belt," he said, outraged. "Suspenders don't work that way."
