Re: Looking For New Tool Bags


Same here. I wore suspenders for years. Felt much better after getting rid of them.

Of course, now my ass isn't big enough and they want to fall down.

Yeah I've got that problem as well. I'm hoping this newly found hip hardware could remedy that. Lol

Still thinking about the Iron Dog setup for the versatility and multiple setups that I can swap out on a whim as needed. Only concerns are comfort as I can't try them on and if they are a company that's going to be around. Marketing is slim to none and hard to find any kind of current info out there.

Thought about a vest for interior work, but I hate the thought of wearing one. I run hot and just thinking about wearing one inside makes me start to sweat!

Gonna keep looking and listening to suggestions.

At one time I thought I was needing a hip replacement. Went to suspenders and that thought has not been back.

Re: Looking For New Tool Bags


I received a free set of bags when I bought a SCMS and they lasted 20 years.

Oddly enough, I don't frame anymore, but I wanted great bags....."just in case". I jumped into the 7-bag framer from Occidental.

Initially I tried to integrate my old LBV (Load Bearing Vest) as suspenders....that ended up as a fail.

Re: Looking For New Tool Bags


I struggle with tool bag setups as well, I've been wearing leather bags for years. I tried to go lighter and switched to Occi lights nylon bags, they looked great but I hated them, too big and puffy! Next I tried McRose nylons but they just hung flat and too floppy. I'm back to leather again, current setup is a Occi Pro Trimmer RH bag with leather hammer loop up front and high mount tape holder on my belt right behind it, and McRose left side 3 pocket fastener bag. The McRose bags are a little smaller and lighter than Occi full size framer bags but bigger than the Occi trimmer fasener bag. So I'm pretty happy with this setup but it still feels heavy by the end of the day...

Re: Looking For New Tool Bags


I just ordered new bags yesterday. Was willing to pay more for something better, but after the research, I just stuck with what I ordered last time. Bucket Boss lightweight, cheap, fragile setup. My current one wore out in 18 months, but with the suspenders and the lightweight, I can deal with replacing them every year if need be. My days of loading up on tools, nails, and such are long gone. I need to be able to layout stuff, nail a few things here and there, and jump in and out of the Lull quickly.
