M1956 Suspenders

  • Specification
  • MIL-S-40160
The development of the H back design cotton M1956 suspenders began in 1954 with the Quarter Master Corps experimental EX-54 load carrying system. Like the experimental version both the front and rear straps of the suspenders were terminated with hooks, however, the front belt hooks featured integral loops for attaching the sleeping gear carrier rather than separate rings.

The bottom edge of each shoulder pad had a metal loop that connected to the supporting strap of an ammunition case, whilst the web keeper on top of the pad was often used to attach a first aid pouch. The suspenders were issued in 3 sizes in Vietnam: Regular, Long and X-Long.
