    Whats your preferred method of carrying your tools when boarding? I have a bit of a thing for tool belts, you see these guys in America who carry everything including the kitchen sink, that looks draining!

    I've done that, maybe the tool belts remind me of webbing pouches, spent ages making it personal/comfortable

    I guess I'm probably one of those guys in America who carry the kitchen sink but believe it or not this is slimmed down from what I used to use. I've had a lot of different setups through the years and my current one is by far my favorite. Its durable but don't let the bulk fool you. With the suspenders its VERY comfortable and I can go all day with no back pain. I'm right handed so if you're a south paw this would be changed up for you.

    My Belt setup:

    Right side tools:

    Here they are individually:

    Left side tools: (I carry screws on this side. 2 pouches for different lengths if necessary)

    Here they are individually: (The paper is important if you have complicated cuts and need to draw it out or so you can take several measurments at once. A scrap piece of board works too but this is cleaner and lighter.

    Yes they are Oxy bags. After replacing my bags every few years I decided to only cry onece and bought these. I'm betting they'll last longer than me so over their lifetime it's worth it. I think this setup cost around $350. If you hang a lot it's totally worth it though.

    What's that pencil holder thing for - holding pencils?

    Have you no ear?

    It's called pencil armor made by Johnson. Makes it so you don't lose your pencil in your bag even when it gets whittled down. (and the clip on it is handy) Carpenter pencils don't stay behind the ear very well, especially when you have to throw sheets over your head.

    I spent £2.75 on my tool belt expecting it to last a year.... still going strong and used a lot more than most would imagine :D

    Picked this up today, got to say first impression after loading my tools in it is good, super comfy and looking forward to a bit of boarding now which I normally hate , the nail/screw pouch is massive and solid and the drill pouch is tight , also has a safety strap quick release and the hammer hoop is nice at the back out of the way

    I got this last year but with screw gun holder and knife holder.
    Love it. All detachable so you can chop and change.
