Brought to you by the experience of how bad the M36 and M45 suspenders were! And also how the first pattern ones kept falling off the belt!
The M36 and M45 suspenders needed a slip-on set of felt pads to make them comfortable. When designing a new set of field gear after the Korean War, we decided to just... make the pads part of the new suspenders. The fact that they have a yoke design and are wider also helps the wight distribution.
The little square rings on the front are good for clipping things to. Like your compass pouch, the clips on your small arms case, a leash to a very small dog, or the sleeping bag carrier.
The second pattern here has real proper closing hooks on the back and comes in lengths. As it turns out, those midwestern boys tend to be pretty big, so we couldn't just issue them the same size as the short kings.
"Long" isn't really accurate any more. These are made for men between 5'9" and 6'2", that's pretty average these days.
You'll get a nice, usable set. These aren't trash, and everything will work. Some finish will be gone or lightly corroded, but we have pretty tight tollerances on things we send out.
