T-shirt and kidney belt, a very good and safe look?
I'm not sure, but maybe you're seeing people who are wearing back protectors? Some back protectors have a strap across the waist, as well as shoulder straps. Maybe you're seeing people who are wearing back protectors under their T-shirts, but with the waist strap exposed. Or maybe it's a German thing and not a North American thing and in that case, I'll just shut up.
