One set of bags, oxy 7 bag pro framers, with suspenders and a hammed holder. Framing, siding, cornice, forming, trim, drywall (when I have to) all one set of bags.

I dont wear bags in finished houses and on punch. I use a tool box/bag and Paslodes then.

I have a set of oxy fatlips for framing, siding, etc. Pretty much outside or rough stuff. I have a dedicated electrical belt. When in trim/cabinet mode I have a tape pouch that holds a fat max 16', small chisel, nail set, utility knife, pencil, and sharpie. Then I have a clip on hammer loop.

Only one tool belt. When trimming I rarely use a tool belt. These days, with air nailers, I don't need to carry around very much.
Tape measure and pencil. For the times that a nail doesn't set all the way or I need to tap something into place, I just leave my tools nearby. Usually my tool belt is sitting close.
Starting out, it was taboo to not wear a tool bag all the time. Now I don't wear it nearly as much. Production is probably slightly slower, but I can move around easier and not carrying that weight makes it easier on me.

Same here one set of pouches, oxylight adjust to fit framer. Swap things in and out as needed. I can understand not using a pouch while trimming, however I like having everything on me, its just more efficient. Ill put a bunch of shims in my nail strip holder while setting doors and hang the nail gun off my belt hook.

I have multiple set ups. When I'm doing framing/carpentry I have my awp oil tan leather rig. I have a set of bags for doing drywall which consist of a box pouch to hold all my tools and drywall hatchet and a leather ten pocket pouch to hold screws and other fasteners. I have a set of bags and a drill holster for when I'm doing metal roofing and a set up with one nail bag and hammer holster for when I'm shingling. One day I will have to get them all out of the trailer and take a picture since everyone else is sharing theres. Same with my giant collection of utility knives. :clap: :thumbup:

I'm in the same boat here. One full tool belt for framing, one side pouch/belt for trim work, one pouch/belt for electrical, then a bag of tools for the punch lists, a tote of tools for more detailed electrical, then a heavy box of tools for the larger remodel jobs, and an even heaver set of tools for when I need to run plumbing.

And I read another good idea and now need to make myself a sheetrock tool belt -grrrr
