How do you don't tuck?

Question as it is. I bought cheap set of snowwiS 996 C/A and pants and as the C/A is a bit too long on torso I thought why the hell not and start trying out without tucking the C/A.

So give me some insight on how you do it, any special tricks or things to notice? I'll gather up my own style at the end of it but need a good heads up to start from.

I'd prefer to not use suspenders which I do have available and use the C/A as suspenders.

It's Simmons 😁  I'll show pics of my untucked 995 c/a and Warrior X2 pants after work.

 

I rock lots of Snowwis gear!

 

Sewed in strap to the c/a for small carabiner which attaches to small elastic loop on the front of the pants.  Rear attachment has support (think I got that idea from you?) to accommodate larger carabiner which attaches to small elastic loop tied to the rear of the c/a.  No inner belt, but 230 lbs. and wearing a small, I snug the outside belt and they are tight enough.  The whole thing floats together in my mind.

Me? I wear suspenders under the C/A and let the C/A move around freely. Nothing too complex/

Same for me. 

I used to play without suspenders but after switch to 2X Pro chest sides of C/A was getting caught on my pants (Warrior) so I tried with suspenders under C/A and no problems ever since.

never tucked

pants with suspenders under the chest. the chest is as relaxed as possible and not tied to the pants. accustomed, nothing interferes with anything. the reason is high sensitivity to overheating. I have recently been wearing Warrior pants with an inner belt and fitted. they allowed you to give up suspenders, but when they are tightened around the waist it gets very hot

@ArdeFIN I'm in a similar situation in that I ordered my current C/A with velcro belly extensions which I've never removed. Tried playing with them on and felt fine so while the unit is a bit longer than I'd typically wear it worked out well. Pants are pro stock CCM HPG 14A with no internal belt... so I do wear suspenders like @coopaloop1234 with the C/A over them. Spec'd the chest piece with a clip to feed through a loop on the back of my pants... but not overly sure it really does anything.

A few of you have mentioned tying pants and C/A using the loop, that is on the outside of C/A belly area?? How do you do that, as while I tuck my C/A with my Warrior pants I cannot figure out how I could go untucked and still use the outside loop. Ofcourse if you use the lowest eyelets on pants then maybe but I would still see it restricting someway.

But alltogether every reply says that keep it simple, and that is what I am aiming to.

I was actually planning to add a loop inside the C/A to tie with pants with some elastic rope etc just the way I do now while tucking things. Back side I would probably go with the same elastic as I have now as it just feels so good.

But I'll have to try the pants on before I exclude the suspenders as I am 140lbs /180cm and the pants are size L there might be some struggle to get them snug. I don't really like the pants or C/A to be tight, even snug might be at the limit. Difficult to say now that I think of it.

This will definitely be an interesting journey.

@dreadlocked1 Can you take a bit wider picture of whole composition, makes it easier to understand the locations of the loops and the setup that way. 👍

Surely!

Let me know if you need anything else.  No suspenders needed, hard to tell in the last pic, but I'm holding the whole setup a couple feet off the ground.  The two attachment points hold all the weight evenly.  You can have your pants as tight or loose as you want.  I replace the elastic cords probably once a year.  Also recommend bungee for the arms on the c/a (last pic).

@dreadlocked1 Well that's about exact setup I had in my mind, direct transition from my tucked-in setup.

I'll have a "service" routine for the C/A and pants before I'll take them into use. Just to wash them through as previous owner hadn't lately, and also add a few mods like the belly loop inside, check all the elastics and what else.

No suspenders, and I don't tie the pants and chest together. Internal and external belt on the pants are kept tight, chest straps up snug around the ribs, and that's it.

This is what I do too. 

As long as my pants are tight with the internal belt (thanks CCM) and just toss on my C/A and I'm good to go. I've always gone untucked.

Since I have lost 40+ pounds, I tuck once again. 
 
But for the days of yore when I didn’t tuck: braces under chesty, tie the breezers and chesty together. 

Amen. Take 20 or 30 more years in net you start moving in the opposite direction. Things don't fit as loose as they used to 🙂. Untuck. Brown suspenders rule though. Not sponsored !
