Worn tool gags for 40 years and Occidental’s finally wore out. Bout the carpenter bags with suspenders and and belt and wonder why it took someone so long to come up with that belt. Half the time I don’t even buckle the belt. Sooooo comfortable. Good job Boulder bags! A little stiff but very durable.
I’ve had my bags for two weeks and they are by far the most comfortable bags I’ve worn to date. I love the organization and size of the pockets within the bags themselves. The pouch on the left hand side of the bags is super useful to hold my miscellaneous bits and also organize the ones I use frequently. Overall I love my Boulder Bags!
I really like my Boulder bags! I will definitely recommend these bags to my electrician buddies.
This tool belt really is tops! High quality, comfortable and efficient! What else could a gal ask for!?
I wanted to say I been using the boulderbags ultimate electrician puch with belt and it's the best bags I've had and owned and I've owned diamondback and occidental leather but this so far has been a great setup from the pouches organizations and on the fastener pouch all the room you have and can fit your hand in the pockets plus the best is very comfortable and great to use
I've used these bags and belts for close to 15 yrs and can say they are the bang for the buck, especially for American made! The suspenders make it even better as daily bag use wears on my hips. With suspenders, I can loosen my belt and let it hang comfortably.
This tool belt is the best purchase I’ve made in a while. The quality is great. The customer service is second to none and it’s made in the good ole USA. These people are the greatest. Thank you
I agonized for weeks about the decision between these and the ultimates. For me, I preferred having a little more of an open pouch design on my dominant side. The professionals did just that. They have the perfect blend of organization and bigger bulk storage on your tool side.
This space is great for those times when you have an odd sized tool like a stud finder or protractor. You can even toss some wire connectors down there for doing makeup. Fair play that it gets a little snug when wearing gloves though.
The tool loops inside the main pouch do a great job of holding a variety of tools, so if you prefer to hold your screw and nutdrivers in there, or if you prefer to hold your pliers there by the handles then you can do that as well.
The outer pockets hold strippers, lineman's pliers, diagonal cutters, and needle nose pliers equally well. The outer slots are a perfect fit for most single function screwdrivers, but are a little snug for insulated or multi bit drivers.
I love the dedicated inner pockets for the utility knife and pencil (or permanent marker), but they're versatile enough to be used by other similar sized items. I find that my work style suits having a utility knife and pencil with me at all times, and the placement of these items is right where I want them.
The large inner pocket is perfect for lineman's pliers or multi function pliers and the big pocket it lives in has enough space to provide a quick landing pad for odds and ends.
The seven tool pouch is a great balance between tool storage and material storage. The inner pockets on the main pouch are exactly where I prefer to hold my torpedo level and folding ruler. They're a great size for tongue and groove pliers if you run a lot of conduit and like to have a set on either side. The pockets are roomy and easy to access. The outer pockets have some folded material that can conceal smaller wire connectors and screws from time to time, especially with gloves, but otherwise still very functional. The tool slots on the outside hold cable jacket strippers and other shorter tools as well.
The tape clip is in a great spot and the belt is very comfortable. I opted for the the leather tipped, medium, and I'm using the last hole. I'm a 32" waist for size comparison. The hammer holder is strong and light. I moved it to the left of center position, which opened up a spot on my right side to hang an impact driver from. The belts supports it without issue and balances nicely.
If you're like me, and your work style is more about carrying only a few tools at a time, but with a wider variety, and you find that you prefer a little bit of bulk storage space on both sides then the professionals are a great choice. The fact that they don't hold as many tools is actually a good thing as it prevents you from carrying your whole tool box or tote on your hips.
I have occidentals, CLCs, and a shelf of mixed styles of huskies, and these by far are my favorite. The handles on the belt are a feature I have been missing in my other sets and the belt itself is wide, comfortable, and offers some good support for your lower back. It's nice and wide and distributes the weight very nicely. I opted to omit the suspenders as I work overhead most of the time. Keeping my load light and slick is how I like to work and these fit my style perfectly. The blue is a great color when you see it in person too!
Thanks Boulder, you guys are making a great product in the States and I love you for it!
Great quality , useful layout for both residential & commercial electricians. Made in USA as well
It’s nice to buy something that don’t have a Made in China tag !!! Best tool belt ever keep up the good work !!!!
Best purchase I’ve made. Great accessory to add to my day to day job. Makes working so much easier.
The customer service is as top notch as the bags themselves. Suspenders are very comfortable and work flawlessly.
I have been an electrician for almost 25 years and have owned several different tool belts and bags. By far, the most comfortable and durable are Boulder Bags. I don't waste my time looking anywhere else. I always end up with Boulder Bags and I am never disappointed.
I did get the wrong color bags, but Aaron was quick to address the issue and send me new bags as well as refunding my shipping. Great service!
I bought my first set of Boulder Bags in 2011 when I got into the electrical trade. They’re so comfortable, functional, and sturdy that I was still using them up until I bought my new set. My old ones got soaked in diesel when a fuel can tipped over and sadly I had to retire them, but I easily could have gotten a few more years out of them. If you treat these bags right they will outlast any other tool you own.
if you search amazon for tool belt on amazon you will find "American made" brand, but if you research that brand it's not made in America! These are, you can even find videos on youtube and google earth their shop. American MADE! Pay a fair price, and screw china!
