I'm about to pull the trigger on a set of occidental bags with my biden bucks. Your opinion fellow carpenters?
I just repair mine w/carpet needle & cat gut fishing line as needed. And of course add ons as needed. Ain’t out there for no look what I got contest, I’m out there to fatten the bank roll
That looks like a well thought out system. Have you used it long term? Do you have different pouches you use for different stages of framing?I know you old school guys are going to hate on this, but I’ve gone through many pouch set ups and I could never find the right set up or configuration until I saw this at Lowe’s. Tough built system. One belt with suspension and unlimited configuration. Left/right rear whatever. 10 pouch options, pouch for tape, driver, hammer etc... even can be removed via a clip to be swapped out with another or pull back out and pouch will stand by itself when your belt is in your way but you need a way to hold tape, screws, nails etc...
Bench mode we’ll call it. Check it

I mean if that's what works for you, that's totally fine. I tried that route when I was younger, not only were tools in awkward spots for me, the bags never really lasted longer than 4-6 months (I know, it is well established I am incredibly hard on things). I went through 2 sets of cheap, box store nylons, then upgraded to a premium leather belt made by Task that lasted me over 8 years (much better ROI). Then to help my body out, I invested in a set of custom made Badgers. You get what you pay for, and tools are an investment, so are bags. Again, whatever works for you.My vote is for a pair of inexpensive Husky bags. They were like $50.00 with suspendies and a bra, but I digress.
They fit fine, are easy to adjust and when I blow through them I can pick up another set for about...wait for it...$50.00.
