I have recieved everything I ordered yesterday. I am very satisfied with KLMK, it is excellent, I went out in the woods today and gave it a field test. I love the Afganistan war cap. The belt and pouches etc. are all very nice.

The only thing I have problem with is suspenders. I'm not sure if I have them wrong or if they are too short, but I can't seem to adjust them to get anywhere near they seem they should be. I'd appreciate if maybe someone could post some pictures of how it should be so I'll know for sure.

The tie is great, I can't wait to use it. And your small gift I love, I will put my car keys on this.(pending me geting a car Laughing )

Sweet. I know how to get a couple of inches out of the back strap. I don't have a camera so we get to work with words, lol.

On the back strap at the bottom where the belt goes through there is a little leather loop that slides up and down, and then further up there is another little leather loop that doesn't slide. The one that doesn't slide is completely useless; all it does is limit the range of length for the back strap. So i undid the buckle bit, where you are suposto adjust the length, and then forced it through that leather loop that doesn't slide. At first it didn't seem like it would go but its a little strechy so it eventually worked through. Then you can do the buckle back up and you can use the rest of the leather that usually just hangs there.

Hope that helps. If it doesn't make sence somewhere i'll try to re-word it.

Do you know what these dealies are for?

This method seems to have worked, thanks! It is still seeming a little short, but at least now I don't look "special"!

No idea as to what those dealies do.

i wore this suspender as it was sent to me. I thought lowering it even more than the limit would make it block my lower pockets.

perhaps if you cut/removed the lower pockets and are playing a paratrooper then you might want it a bit lower.

I put the belt through the belt loops of my pants and then tucked in my shirt. So it doesn't block pockets that way. But i guess if you wore it like in this picture http://www.sovietarmystuff.com/detail.php?product_id=155 then you could wear it as is. I guess it is probably suposto be that way but i thought it was weird to have a belt up around your belly.
