Here's my rig, oxy 7bag image-564774214.jpg 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.

Looking for a set of Occidental bags if anyone is looking to part with them. Doesn't need to be new....decent shape/broken in is what I'm looking for. Let me know what you have, I'm open to anything.

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

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.

I love leather but I'm all about Oxy nylon. And the adjustafit platform is bar none for comfort. When these wear out I'm getting the Finisher bags in the adjustafit platform because they're smaller and more square.
