Do the weight pockets move on the belt or are they permanently fixed?I am wondering if the suspenders leisurepro sells with the loops at the bottom will work with this belt.
The weight pockets are fixed and are divided to hold a single weight. You can shift weights to different pocket positions if needed.
Works fine for me.
I don't use suspenders with it, I just wrap it around my waste over
my wet or dry suit and the weights stay in tact.
It is durable and has never slipped open on me.
No the weight pouches do not move
I cannot say whether the suspenders would work
I like the belt, it stays in position even with 30 pounds of weight, sticks in position because back side is rubbery an does not slip down
Ken: The pockets are fixed with a stiched seam that seperates the five sections. A single zipper closes the top of the compartments. The sections can hold four pounds of weight in each section. I do not think a five solid will fit. I use 16 pounds so for me it is not a problem (4 four pounders work just fine). I am not sure what you mean by suspenders, but there is a clip on the left side and a loop on the right side that I have never used, but you could attach items to the belt (i quess if you like). My belt is showing some age and I will replace it with the same unit. I find it more confortable than a standard dive belt and easier to fine on the boat among the other weight belts. I hope this helps. Jeff
the pockets don't move. suspenders become a personal option. I think the suspenders helps weights from falling down but caked droping your weights a problem
They do not move, but you can adjust weight by adding two weights to some pockets and zero weights to other pockets. Gives you the same effect as moveable pockets. It's a good belt, I have 500 dives on it.
The weight pockets are fixed on the belt and do not move. More importantly, I do not recommend this belt. The pouches are not made well and after a month or so, I had 2 or 3 pouches wrapped in duct tape to keep the weights from falling out of the holes in the bottom of each pouch. It got very frustrating and I ended up going back to an old school weight belt with hard weights.
The pockets are permanently fixed. Not sure you can use this belt with suspenders. Clips work well if you want to attach other things to carry underqter.
