I've been wearing the carpenters combo 140 with a drill holster and suspenders, and replaced the right side electritian pouch for the stock one for 3 weeks and I was compelled to write this review. I work as a commercial carpenter with metal studs and acoustical ceilings, drywall and other products in my field. I just picked the tool belt up from the mail - 100 times better then the junk I looked at in the stores around town. Anyone with a small garage or basement shop has probably been confronted with this problem at some point. I used left over 2x2s, made a frame, and put a quarter inch perforated panel on both sides. Especially with some dimensions and list of bolt and screw sizes would be a great addition.
Would be fine with a clean bench, but when in the middle of a project, could get to be a pain in the butt. I purchased this toolbelt for the wide belt which is nice and for what i thought was large front pouches for screws and rivets.


I will be sure and tell evryone what a great product and what great service I received from Gatorback! I went with the black and white stitching over the normal green based on reviews saying the green nail pouches were very small and hard to get a hand in and I'm glad I did. If the green pouches are smaller than the black it would have been a problem but the black seem like the standard size and for me are perfect. I can't comfortably fit my hand in them and pull out screws or whatever else i need to put in them. I have been through the craftsman leather bags, always pulling loose at rivets near belt loops or wearing through at top of pouch at belt, bottoms wearing through. For 2 dollars a set, it saved time and money, and works just as well if not better than using nuts and bolts and fabricating. I have had the 140 combo belt for about 10 months, with a little wear, holds everything I need- pretty much, as I get older I try to work with less tools in the pouches- less weight to hump around all day. With this rig I have successfully carried (in order right-left) my hand tools in my right side electricians pouch, a tape on the tape clip, drill in holster, hammer, my speed square and gauges and pullers and other trim tools on my left pouch(glue, nails, etc.), and also a paslode nailer hanging from its clip and not been uncomfortable or weighed down. Not without a few draw backs though, they are a much wider setup than ordinary pouches, like squeezing through stud walls at 16 inches wide, and turning aroung in tighter spots, originally feels like you are a gunfighter from the old west- arms out to your sides, but have gotten used to them by now I guess.
Given the line drawings instead of photos, you have to wonder if the author has actually built one . This was originally made several years ago and had to be taken apart to remember how I originally made it.


But needless to say i sent back this toolbag combo and was very disappointed in the size and holding capacity of this product.
I have worn the bottom out or through the utility knife holder, due to the fact that I use a non-retracting knife- blade is always out. Couldn't imagine paying any more than the price I paid for an occidental or other high end brand. The belt-loop holding the extra belt after fastened has broken- a leather loop- only stapled together. I took off the hammer holder that comes in the back, by your rear end, just don't use it or need it.
The hammer holder on the back of the right bag is OK, took some getting used to after years of using leather bags with a loop at the front of the right bag- from Home Depot and Sears. You may wish to use a spacer between the peg boards so that the steel hooks for the peg board hangers have enough room against the opposite peg board. For under $100 - for the whole setup-delivered to your front door it is a good buy, by my standards. But definitely spend your well earned money on a well built product such as the Gatorback tool belt.
