I looked long and hard after my old leather tool belt wore out. It was the old style and the pockets were mounted high and tools would poke me in the stomach when bending over.
Out of all the ones I've seen, this one is one of the best for me. The belt is easy to use and separate from padding. The rings for the suspenders are on the belt, not the on bags, which gives you totally more flexibility arranging your bags. And they come on/off and can be moved. They are deep pockets, and hold themselves open. There is a slot behind one of the lower bags for a carpenters square. There is a small pocket on the belt and suspenders either which may hold a cell phone. I was hoping it had electrical pack with it, it does not, but I can add one easily enough if I need it. The supplied suspenders are well padded with gel, however as some noted the padded part is not all that long and you have to adjust to keep it on your shoulder. I'm 6' and mostly long torso and I had to tighten up the shoulder straps, so it should fit most tall folks. The waist band is nearly bottomed out at my 34" waist, but fits fine. There is also a chest clip to keep the front suspenders from separating. The excess belt is not that easily stored it seems, as I'm thin and have a lot hanging out - it does have velcro on it but not sure yet how to keep it from flopping - there is a loop but still a lot hangs out.
The ballistic nylon seems very durable, although I did note there were no rivits only heavy tacking, but with that material I guess its going to last, and that may weigh less. For what it is, unloaded it is pretty light.
True it will lighten your wallet a bunch, but for a very comfortable tool belt with tons of room for tools and cell phones, etc., this maybe an easy expense to justify.

I am a professional carpenter. I am very happy with the design, quality, and fit of this belt. I will mention that I am 6' 180 lbs, and the suspenders, adjusted to their shortest, fit me perfectly for how I like to belt set. If you are shorter, I would recommend you try one at the store if available. I will mention, that while this belt is advertised as a McGuire-Nicholas, the belt is not branded as such. It is made by The Brown Bag Co. Perhaps this company is a subsidiary of McGuire-Nicholas, I'm not sure. I originally made the purchase for the belt design, the reviews, and the Mcguire-Nicholas name (as I own many of their products, and have been pleased). As of this review, I have used the belt for about 3 weeks.

The combination of the padded waist band/belt with the padded shoulder straps makes the tool belt very comfortable. I find that the shoulder strap makes it so much easier to wear a tool belt over a winter coat. Plus, the tool belt is very easy to remove and put on.
No more putting ALL the weight of my tools on my hips.

I am in the process of building my new home and needed a set up just like this. It is very comfortable and is very handy especially when you're climbing up and down a ladder. Great investment. The only thing that this set up did not have is a drill holster, but I purchased one separate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aron Excellent product!
Very comfortable, sturdy and supports all my tools. No more running back and forth for something, everything is with me and my work gets done much faster. Lots of room for just about anything. I researched a lot, and this one had the best reviews, I highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mtwoodbutcher great belt long lasting
i have had this belt for 2 years of very abusive work and they are now showing there age but still have some life left in them I really like how I can use them for all types of construction I even use the tool pouch with my scaffolding setup and they hold my tools in place even when almost upside down my only complaint is that the speed square is not deep enough so I find I keep catching it on my sleeve or glove and knocking it out of the pouch but the large pouches are very nice for framing or roofing and I will be buying another set when these are truly dead
