Mil-Tec M1950 hook suspenders
These are a good pair of suspenders, a direct copy of the US Army M-1950 suspenders. These go with any trousers, and as a specialty, you do not have take the suspenders off to remove them from your trousers - which means you can, for example, take a quick shit without taking your jacket off. Vulgar as this might seem, it's pretty golden when the temperature drops under - 20 ºC.
These are made of elastic webbing, cross at the back and attach to trousers via hooks on sides. US M65 field trousers have loops for these, but those are not necessary - belt loops will do just fine.
These are adjustable, but there are a certain things to remember; these are meant to be used with high-waisted field trousers, not jeans. With this in mind, the suspenders should work with up to 190 cm tall people.

Eivätkä muuten tipu enää henkselit olkapäiltä villapaidan alla.
Jää nähtäväksi hiertävätkö pitkässä marssissa tai miten repun kanssa toimivat...

I have two of these, the genuine article and this copy. In the genuine article, the hooks are intended to be placed with the open side outward, the small flappy thing protects clothing from catching on the hook, and any excess elastic is hidden against the body. In the copy, the hooks are the wrong side out and the button hole allows the hook to come through and chafe on clothing. But once you reverse the hooks (ie. rethread the elastic through the buckles the other way around) and sew the button holes shut, these are great.
EDIT joulukuu-17/Dec-17: Ostin toiset tämmöiset, ja niistä oli edellä mainitut ongelmakohdat korjattu: 4/5 tähteä. I bought another set, and the previously mentioned drawbacks have been fixed: 4/5 stars.
