Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by homebuilder Very durable but too heavy & too stiff
For the price 0f $19 I thought I'd give it a try but at 5'8", 170lbs the belt, even empty, is just too heavy & bulky. My be good for a 6'+ person

Great toolbelt for the price. Only complaint is the pencil pockets aren't deep enough

It looks huge on the picture but it isn't that bad when on. I picked this one because it comes with three pouches and I can remove the pouches and arrange them how I want, use only what I need or add on unlike some other belts where the bags were stitched to the belt. Also since it is nylon I can wash or get it wet. The belt is a belt buckle instead of a quick release snap with the sliding adjustment set up. The belt buckle is be better because you don't have to mess with tugging and playing with the strap to get it to fit. With the buckle and holes you can just move up or down a hole quickly for let's say you had it on with a coat and then decided to use it without your coat and had to adjust it again. This belt has both the belt buckle and sliding adjustment system. Remove the pouches from the belt and you will find the sliding adjustment buckle. Some people do not realize this and thought the belt buckle and holes was the only adjustment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LiemH Great tool belt for handy man around the house!
I bought this tool belt to do work around the house, especially when I am up on the ladder!
I used this to build my fence. Left pocket hold all the screws, right pocket hold the other tools, this and that. I added a Husky drill holster to the right for the Impact Driver. Screws on left, drill on the right, work flows smoothly, my brother didn't have a belt, he has to bend over get nails from the bucket slowing him down.
Another occasion I used this was when I was on the ladder installing the security lights, the pocket hold all the hardware nice and secure, I didn't have to make multiple trips and all my basic tools are right at hand! Drill, Screw driver, tape measure, hammer, etc...
This thing is not something a dedicated electrician would use as it doesn't have small pockets for all the tools, but for a handy man, it is the best choice!
TWO things I don't like, the belt! The belt is not heavy duty thick belt, after 2 time used, the fabric seem to bulled from the metal hole on the belt. I intend to replace the belt when it fails and get a heavy duty one to replace it, 20 dollars for the 2 big pouches is worth every penny already. Second, the belt is made for waist size 32 in plus! I am 32 and it fits just right, my brother size 29 waist and it sags when he tried it on

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AZCWGRL Not a good fit for petite people
I was really excited about getting a tool belt, I've needed one for a while because I build things and repair things around our home often, and it is a pain to not have my tools on me when I am on a ladder or trying to work quickly. I bought this one because it seemed to fit all of my needs for now. When I clipped the zipties at home and went to try it on it was huge. Even the smallest hole was 6inches too big. Wish husky would add more eyelets so that petite people can use it too, it wouldnt even cost them much more to add more and they would open themselves up to a wider consumer base.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AMCableInstaller Great tool for my job!
For what I do as an installer, this is one of the most important tools for me. Deep pockets, and room for additional attachments for my other tools I need to carry on the job site. Other than being a little bulky, this is great! I love it. The warranty is great, the craftsmanship is great, I can find no faults with this whats so ever! So far so good. I can say with as much as I 'abuse' this with being thrown in my truck, rolling around, and the beatings it takes with everywhere I go, it is still standing strong, and holding up nice. I may have to get a new one in about 2-3 years, but by then for the price I have already made my money out of it and will keep with the same brand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PhoTonn Right tool for the job makes work easier
I am replacing all the boards on a large deck. I kept running around to find the tools used. First I used a large under-bed tray, but everything got scrambled. Found this online and checked it out in person. It has made me at least 30% faster. I keep clips in one outside pocket, screws in the other; tape measure and notepad in smaller outside pocket; hammer, screw drive and stiff putty knife in large pocket; marking pens in small slot.
One weird thing is the size of the belt. This is made to fit HUGE waists - it literally could go around me twice (32" waist) and I almost didn't buy it for that reason. It took a while for me and store person to figure out how to adjust it. It might go an inch smaller but that's about all. So try it one before buying.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrMinnesota Very pleased
I bought this Husky 12 pocket fabric handyman rig after my 10 year old Bucket Boss Airlift Suspension Rig bags started to fail. It had the old style woven straps to hold the bag to the belt. Also the belt was the old style quick release belt that was plastic and broke over time as well. I liked the Husky because it had a 3" belt vs the Bucket Boss 2" belt. I do miss the removable padded suspenders of the Bucket Boss since it took and dispersed the weight on my shoulders and off of my waist. I have found that moving to the 3" belt has alleviated much of my discomfort in the waist and no longer seems to be an issue for me. I do like the versatility of the steel buckle belt with monster grommets that fits larger waists. So far no issues with the belt or bag system. I like how bags wrap around the belt for longevity. I also like how smooth the inside of the fabric bags are for easy clean out and metal shavings don't get stuck in from drywall screws. I always hated how I would blow out with compressed air or bang on the ground to get shavings out only to stick your hand back in and get shavings under the fingernails. Same would happen with slivers of wood. Never fun. I am usually using a ladder on the average 3 days a week and so far I have had no issues with the bag catching on the ladder which surprised me since I thought the tape pouch up front would catch. I find it doesn't have as many pockets as my last one however I just load up with the essentials and then whatever I will be working on that day. The reason I bought this versus getting another Bucket Boss was home depot stopped carrying Bucket Boss in the store and I needed a replacement that day and the price was fair. The cost to get a new belt and pouch was more expensive and to get a total replacement would have been and extra $40-50 more. Like I said, I love the wider belt and the grommet selection. I just miss my suspension part of the rig. I hope it holds up and last me for years to come.
