Wanting To Update Tool Belts, Recommendations?


I do basically remodeling projects, windows, doors, kitchens and baths. It seems that I never have enough pockets for fasteners and tools with my current bag, and I am wanting to update to a bigger and better bag. Basically I am wanting a ballistic nylon or leather bag that has pockets on the right hand side for a chalk box, utility knife, chisel, screwdriver, tape measure, and other misc, tools, and possible some fasteners. On the left side I like to carry my other chalk box, speed square, and several pockets for fasteners. I do prefer a shoulder harness/suspender system with or without a belt. I seen a cheapy at Home Depot that had a metal hook for a cordless drill that was incorporated into the belt which would be nice. Anybody got any recommendations??? I have been looking at the Tool Rider GSR by Brown Bag company, a Milwaukee tool belt and buying a suspender system, and Bucket Boss's Builder's Rig Airlift, and Mullet Buster tool belt, but just can't settle on one. I would like your thoughts and recommendations on this, and money doesn't have to be an issue ....

Take a look at Occidental Leather, they make some nice stuff. I swear by suspender rigs, but you have to find one that you are comfortable with.

look at the Occidental leather beltless bag system- that's what I have, and it works pretty good. if you don't like the bags that are offered with the beltless system, you can piece together something similar using any set of regular bags that you want to use, plus the converter from this thread:https://www.contractortalk.com/showthread.php?t=25969

I have the mullet busters and I like them a lot. Had them for 2.5 years now and they are holding up very well.
