The French FAMAS Harness Suspenders are an integral part of the FAMAS combat set that is used by the French Army. With the design of these suspenders, you can easily use them for a variety of purposes other than their original use as the harness for the FAMAS combat set. You can also collect the other parts of the FAMAS combat set as the suspenders tend to be the most difficult to find in good condition.
French FAMAS Harness Suspenders
The French FAMAS combat set is still being used in many parts of the world by French overseas forces. Having made its debut in the 1980s along with the FAMAS rifle, this uniquely French combat set was designed to work in all of the areas where the French army operates. This would include every type of climate from arctic to tropical so the textiles and properties of this combat set needed to be tough. With the use of polymers instead of metal, corrosion resistance and strength was achieve and the lifespan of the entire combat system was extended.
Now that we have this harness suspender set, we have found it to be very versatile. Most combat suspenders are designed in a way that only allows them to be used with the combat set. With the way these suspenders attach, you can use them as traditional suspenders or you can match them up with the other FAMAS combat set accessories to complete your collection. Like all surplus, the possibilities are only limited to your imagination and patience.
It is like new, can't argue with that. Not sure how it works with what gear set the French are using, as it doesn't work with the FAMAS belts I have now. They are a pale green and this is darker olive color. Great if you have the right set.
Goes Well with FAMAS Belt
Review bySurvivalism is Freedom
This is a reasonably high quality item at a good price. Fits as one would expect on a French FAMAS belt. Not quite as good as ALICE suspenders, but quite good nonetheless.
For the price I will find a use for them.
NICE IF IT WORKS..
DOES NOT WORK WITH THE FAMAS PISTOL BELT BUT WILL MAYBE TRY TO WORK IT IN SOMEWHERE ELSE. O.K. A+++
Really Nice But..
These suspenders are brand new and only cost $4.95. They are well made but they aren't for tall people. I'm 6 foot 1 and they are just a bit too short for me unless I want to wear my pants like Steve Urkel. No biggie, I'll probably end up swapping someone for something equally as cool.
Five dollar support system
Good condition and a great repurpose item ...
I'll be able to lug my 20 liter water bag a little further more comfortably.
Similar to Nam issue H harness
Paired with Famas pistol belt good to go - plastic hardware to keep an eye on but not a deal breaker. More stable than current Y type US gear if packing 3Bs - Beans, Bullets& band aids and as always more ammo cause you can't eat if you're dead, as they say!!!
I ordered the belt with the Harness Suspenders. Combined with the Swiss Army Belt Pack, I can build a nice field/butt pack system with minimum weight and rain-proof. The Suspender is not for people with large body frame. I am a size "M" at 5'9" tall and it fits.
