Re: Dewalt Tool Belts


well their not actually dewalt.. kunys / clc makes them for dewalt

the suspenders are nice because of the cell phone pocket built in and more comfortable than the normal suspenders, other than that.. your paying extra for the dewalt logo put on the nail bags.. just buy kunys if your not up for buying occis

Re: Dewalt Tool Belts


If i do cave for the oxys, what model should it be?? Now i dont carry a lot, just the basics,(hammer, tape, knife, chalk box, flat bar, speed square, linesmens bla bla bla)

I do a wide range of things like im sure most contractors do, one day framing, next day roofing, next day trim bla bla bla.

How big are the pouches? I dont mean how much stuff i can fit in them, i mean how wide are they when you wear them.

Re: Dewalt Tool Belts


I have the 5191 model, the Pro Carpenter 5 bag leather assembly
http://www.bestbelt.com/product.php?sku=5191&type=

I sometimes wish it had at least one more pocket one the left side, especially when I frame because I like to keep 10d's, 16d's, and 10d stubbies. Since I'm right handed I fish out nails from my left side pouches. Other than that, this belt is easily the most comfortable I've ever used.

If I was strictly doing production trim work, I probably would have gone with the Pro Trimmer, except it doesn't have a slot for your speed square.

This one also looks pretty good for just general construction. It's adjustable if you live in an area with more climate change than FL (where I live).

I wear the fat lips. They are big and wide. I don't wear a tool belt for trim work so it's only worn for framing, siding, windows, etc. I love them. They are fairly light when empty. If you are looking for one to use inside for trim as well that isn't as big look at the oxy lights.

I dont wear my bags doin trim. I actually wear that single husky maitence pouch from home depot. Clips right onto my pocket, small enough to not damage anything and big enough to carry just about everything

Re: Dewalt Tool Belts


Haha. I know what you mean. When I install cabinets, I take it off. I scratched the crude out of a pantry door on a job with the rear hammer loop! I do wear it for trim though.

Re: Dewalt Tool Belts


the thing that irks me about those bags brutus posted is how they pockets are padded wtf???? why would they not only add to the weight of the toolbelt but at the same time reduce the amount of space in the pockets by doing so....... good thing kunys put the dewalt name on em.. they sure as hell dont do that on the true kunys bags
