Yes could do it with 550 cord or throw line easily. Might want to add some padding if it’s gonna be supporting a big saw or ropes or whatever that adds more weight.
I just got a new pair of suspenders in the mail yesterday, 7$ for these Craftsman ones from Sears website I think. Haven’t tried em yet, I got a decent pair of suspenders already but screw it they were 7$ and look like they’re made ok.

The clips are definitely gonna go, i was thinking about little quick links, but first I’m gonna try 550 cord. Easy enough, pretty strong, and no added weight. Delta links would look good but the weight adds up.
I should just get a better buckle on the saddle. I never needed suspenders on my old Traverse and even older Master.
What I’ve been using lately are military pistol belt type load bearing suspenders, the H style but the Y style would probably work fine. Cheap knockoff but so far holding up fine, I only wear them with big saws or weight hanging off the saddle. Can probably find government issue for cheap but they’ll be olive drab green. There’s little spots that could become a tending point but I haven’t tried it. I don’t wear the suspenders unless I need to, usually spurs on spars, while I usually wear the Chestie for srt rope climbing. Sometimes I wear both Chestie and suspenders.
