the wears suspenders crowd
See...I assume you're talking about what I would call 'braces'...not what I would call suspenders.
So what do you call the lacy thing that a lady uses to hold up her stockings? That's what I would call suspenders!

This has got me to ask here about carrying a monopod. I can see where they're coming from. I use a light carbon monopod with a quick release plate, frequently, but have never thought about supporting it from my weight. I'll give that a try. I'll look at the fishing/waist supports.

What this kickstarter project does do is solve my ongoing issue with how to carry my monopod ...I tend to use it when I'm in towns/cities and occasionally on walks. If I have a large rucksac then there's no problem, but often I have a small travel bag, so I can't attach, thus I have to hand hold. So anyone got any usual ideas about how to carry it - possibly, via shoulder or waist ? It would need to be a simple,light arrangement that doesn't restrict movement, or become a burden, especially in hot countries.

Many thanks
