Not your everyday work pouches.

Pros

  • Quality Materials

Cons

  • Too big for everyday use.

Best Uses

  • Big Jobs

COMMENTS:

They are great if you are doing any framing or building a deck, etc as they will hold a large volume of nails and/or screws but they are too big and bulky for everyday use. I prefer the Ultimate Tool Pouches for everyday use as they have more pockets and hang closer to your body.

      COMMENTS:

      While I can't give a long term durability review, the materials seem well assembled and fairly durable. Let's break it down into the different pieces.

      The belt: Fairly strong band with a sturdy enough locking mechanism to stand up the even the most filling lunch break. When it comes to putting on the tool pouches, it's just a bit too soft to comfortably hold the weight. Grab a belt with some kind of solid core, and get nailing.

      The knee pads: Nothing much to say here. The neoprene pads are great, the thick foam ones are maybe just a smidge too thick or stiff, but that may break in.

      The hammer loop: It works. The rubber coating grabs onto wooden handles a bit, and can be a little annoying.

      The tool pouches: This is where I get the most mixed emotions. Overall they perform the tasks I need them to, but I see room for improvement. The option for a belt, or the Velcro loop attachments on the Duluth pants is a great thought, and it works well in practice. I believe one of the pockets is designed to fit a 6" speed square, and it does fairly well, but I worry about the durability of the pocket, and if it's not in the right position there's a little struggle to get the square in all the way. The biggest change I'd like to see, which I may buy a new bag for, would simply be the movement or addition of pencil/ marking tool pockets. With the current pockets, pencils can hang out and get snagged on something as simple as a doorway. Moving the pockets to the inside or both sides of the bags would allow for easier access depending on where the bags are, as well as better line of sight, and protection from pencil snags.

      I'm conflicted as to whether I'd recommend this whole kit to a friend, but I lean toward yes.
