I took the belt clip off my tape , easier fit. I have a 35' footer in the door of my pick em up for estimating.
Here's my rig, oxy 7bag View attachment 107986 Had it since November of 2006. Probably get another 5 years out of it easily I took mine to a saddle shop and had the tape measure holder switched to the left side Now they fit like an extension of my body Get them, you'll have no regrets.
I've got the trim carpenter leather set for trimming inside. Love them too. Can't imagine a better set unless occidental starts making custom order sets.
Fiebings Neatsfoot oil will help break them in like a glove the first week :thumbsup: Soak them from the backside and they will be soft.The only thing I hate about about my Occi Belt is took damn near 6 months to break in.
If a smaller guy like me get the hip buddies. I am 5'10 155 so not a big guy.
After that 6 month's they fit like a glove. Wont want to wear another pair of pouch's/bags
I did still weren't the most comfortable thing for about 6 months. after that they are a glove lol. 3 years into them only time I know I am wearing them is when I am carring a drill in a holster.Fiebings Neatsfoot oil will help break them in like a glove the first week :thumbsup: Soak them from the backside and they will be soft.
