The charger/ handset stuff I’ve used breaks down at the crimp eventually, and those small red, green and yellow wires show up!

If you don't cover the crimp with shrink tube that will happen

If you do cover it with shrink tube, then it doesn't happen

Sudsy what belt are you using?

Bought it at Lowes, $18

Three parts, the 2 piece adjustable underneath part with back support, and then the belt itself.

I like it because it keeps the various belt attachments from wearing on the waders

I made my own. Plain ol cheap coiled lanyard with a paracord type covering that was rated at 200lbs. The cord was hollow with a material core. I removed the core and worked the cord over the lanyard. Cramps and shrink as needed. I can post pics later.

Older car cell phone charger cord makes the best bungee you can make

Aluminum crimps from home depot and some heat shrink tube, easy and cheap. 

I have lanyards that are well over 10 years old and still work great

Doesn't that belt get real heavy when wet?

All nylon, even whatever is inside the thick part (maybe polyester there?), sheds water right off

You can make your own from coiled extension cord (much heavier duty than phone cord) Loop it through your clip, whip finish with braid and shrink tube.
