    interesting, I was just going to a buddy who knows someone. My buddy works in the film industry and his buddy that works with them also does leather on the side and since those guys have heavy tool belts to fix anything on set i was going to go check out what they use.

    Mine is not any thing special, but it works for me.

    Ouch those look painful!!

    Haha yeah, at the time they worked for me, but at the end of the day, kinda have sore hips. Don’t really use them as much lately. With the tool bags and such, plus not doing as much renos lately.

    I went Cordura for a bit, but I’m back to leather. Getting older though, I wear them only for specific tasks nowadays, preferring to work out of a high-quality bag.

    Speaking of Occidental, I might treat myself to one of these at some point:

    do you find moving around and working on a project is it easier to remember to move the bag or keeping it attached literally at the hip is better?

    That’s a super looking bag, every thing is right there at a grab. Bit holders and every thing.

    That is a nice bag. I wonder if it would fit into an L-4 as an insert of sorts?

    no not spoiled. i wore them yesterday working on a form for a massive footing for a wharf were building. very comfortable and light weight. the only thing i dont like on them is the hammer loop thats really high on pouch.. im probably going to put a hammer loop on the belt

    For service work that would be awesome! For the little bit of electric work I do I still prefer a tool belt. That way I have wire nuts, staples, etc. along with my tools.

    How many commercial electricians wear tool belts here? My roommate is a commercial electrician and only ever works out of his tool bag.

    Ideal has made one for quite some time, but it’s a little more square than the Occidental one appears to be. I had a cordura one of similar dimensions years back, and it was prone to tipping over in truck. CLC makes a cheaper version, but it’s probably made in China and of lesser quality.

    Ideal:

    There’s someone who’s been selling custom-made ones on Ebay that looked pretty good, but he has no current listing.

    Found this at my local electrical supply house yesterday. Seems like a good concept.

    looks like a good option , instead of carrying a big tool belt or a bigger tool bag around, depending on the tasks at hand , be curious , two reviews and they said it was good.

    I thought about getting Occi’s vest system a couple years ago, then I ran into a guy who had one. He said they weren’t bad in the fall or the winter to wear over a flannel or a sweatshirt but that they were way to hot to wear in the summer.

    I had thought about a vest like that but the problem comes when you need to bend over and kneel. Wouldn’t work great for finishing.
