How well does the Emdom Battle suspender interface with the Blue Force Gear SOC-C Modular Padded Belt? Any personal experiences with these pieces of kit, and the Emdom company will be greatly appreciated also.

I don't have either of these particular pieces. My suspenders are made by HSGI, and my MOLLE belt is by BDS I believe. Most of the belts and suspenders seem to have a fairly universal attachment system. So long each is made to integrate with the other piece, the particular brand doesn't seem to make too much difference.

On EMDOM...I, personally, am a big fan. I have one of their baby shingles and at least one other of their pouches. Their construction is durable enough for anything I've tossed them thus far. I know I want some more of their unique items. They make a lot of stuff that I haven't found anyone else carrying something comparable. And though it isn't made in the US, they are made in Hong Kong which I consider at least a smidge nicer than mainland China.

Ok, you're from West Virginia, Served in the WVARNG, 156th MP Det.
Interests is Boating, your Occupation is a Clerk; and you open this thread and ask this question concerning: "Suspender Compatibility".
So my question is: How does a NG MP boating enthusiast get involved in the nuance of field gear?

I've been thinking about getting BFG pals belt, with Emdom's Hippie Panel for a holster, and an HSGI bridge panel for a dual mag pouch, to start buiulding a second line.

Also like the concept behind Emdom's Dragster Strap.

Penn-It's a passion/hobby. If I'm not welcome to post here, I shall go update the blotter, so to speak.

the EMDOM suspenders are compatible with the belt - either by using the attach points or wrapping completely around it.
i would not use the hippie panel as a holster platform - it wasn't designed as such and is not stable enough.

There are many people that utilize good kit to support their need to bear loads in functions such as 3-gun or multi-gun competition.

I've got many friends that have never served that have some of the best kit for shooting trooper class or other classes. It helps especially given the fact that you bear your total load of ammo for all stages from the start. And it sucks :D

Not saying that this is the case, but I've seen many a mall ninja too!

my $.02 for the day.

I don't have much experience, and am always looking to learn more. I'm about to go "backpacking in europe" as I call it, looking forward to letting someone come home. I am issued the Blackhawk Serpa thigh rig, but I honestly don't care for it much. I recently switched to a Serpa chest rig, and have started training with that, but it presented a problem of carrying the pistol when not wearing armor. I discovered this at Ft Bragg, and resorted to "Mexican IWB" carry when not wearing armor. I didn't purchase any of the products I was looking at, money troubles. To solve the problem I purchased the Blackhawk quick detach kit, and an belt slide platform. Now I can carry the pistol on my armor, then move the holster to the belt platform when not wearing armor. I haven't yet used this system, but I believe it will work for my needs.
