ST. PAUL (May 20, 2010) – Ergodyne today announced the issuance of a new patent on the Arsenal® 5565 Hydration Padded Tool Rig Suspenders.

The uniquely designed Arsenal® 5565 suspenders conveniently attach to any of Ergodyne’s Arsenal® Tool Belts, allowing workers to keep water at the ready while on the job. Featuring 1680D Ballistic Polyester; thick, vented foam padding; and gel at key ride points, the Arsenal® 5565 suspenders deliver optimal comfort and, most importantly, provide fast access to hydration.
