Tips For Adjusting Oxy Belt


I bought these 9550 adjust to fit Pro Framers a year and a half ago but really love using my Pro Vest for anything inside, but it is time.

What are the considerations when letting the bags out so that they become closer in the front? The video from Oxy shows the bags more rearward, would they bang on your legs if more forward?

Any tips for relieving the stiffness of new bags?

Those are nice bags. I dont have any tips on those, mine are the 7 bag framers. Those look comfortable though.

Fill your sink with hot water. Put them in for a few minutes. When you take them out dry them off with a rag. Then put all your tools in them and let them air dry. Then oil them

Honestly, just work in them for a few days, the sweat and body movement will form them to you. They'll still be stiff for a while, but far more comfortable

Re: Tips For Adjusting Oxy Belt


they feel great-can't wait to shorten the belt...or put on some weight.

I don't have a convenient place to put a utility knife Really like the bags though!

I have the same bags. I drench them in leather conditioner often. Year and a half later still not broke in.

Mine are similar, but not the adjust to fit. Took about two months to get them broke in, never oiled em or anything. They seem to get more comfortable each day.
