Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandyAndy2010 More like, Tool belt system
This by far the best concept I have seen in tool bag design. A system that allows the user to add or subtract bag(s) or items as needed and with the push of a button. The bags and other tool holders can be used on the pant's or with a common belt.
The larger bags have a kick stand that allow the user to use these set upon a table or work station. It's allows me to organize my tools per job and either take the bag I need or set my belt up for bigger or more involved jobs.
A 3 strand suspender set can be added and there a lot of bags and tool holder to choose from I am so happy to see a belt set with so much versatility. I will add to this and I am familiar with Toughbuilt. A responsible and knowledgeable tool maker. I really can't say enough about this system.

Very impressed with this tool belt. It is very comfortable to wear and has a variety of options that make it super convenient and easy to use. The materials the belt is made up of are superior to many others on the market. I love how easy it is to remove a pouch or add a pouch. The pouches have a built in kickstand so its easy to stand them up when detached from the belt. Pockets are durable and hold items securely. Awesome belt!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by lilrabbit Comfortable, but way too big. Designed to carry everything, which is far more than anyone should carry.
On the plus side, the belt is really comfortable and provides good lumbar support and there are apparently a series of accessory bags available that might make this set customizable for a particular trade. They also apparently have a rail system so that you can take the bags from this belt and mount them to the wall of your garage. I suppose the theory is that you would equip different bags for different tasks and switch out the bags depending on the job you were going to do. Some marketing genius came up with this. I doubt there were any tradesmen involved in the design.
The bags are well constructed so they probably will last a long time...but I doubt anyone who is serious about making a living with tools will want to wear these out on the job. They have lots of little extra plastic bits sewn on to...I don't know, look "cool" I guess. Great for superheros, kinda silly for serious craftsmen.
They seem to be designed to handle the needs of all trades at once. There are lots of pockets, pouches and slots, but none of them seem to fit the common framing, finish carpentry tools or electrical tools I carry, and when you load it down, all the tools get in each other's way, or snag on other "features" of the bags and you end up spilling stuff everywhere.
I tooled up with the kit for a framing job, framing hammer, a pouch each of 8d and 16d and a couple of clips of pneumatic nails, tape, speed square...not really any good place for the speed square, pencil, utility knife, nail set, beater chisel, linesman's pliers. Everything felt loose, like it was about to fall out, so I packed in a few other things to try to keep things from rattling around so much.
There is no good place for a cell phone. It is awkward to pull your hammer out of either of the provided loops. There is not a secure place where you can easily reach your tape measure. Lots of little pockets, but none of them right for a nail set. Not a good place for a utility knife, chisel, flat bar, cat's paw or the aforementioned speed square.
Bottom line is that these are big and made to carry lots of "stuff" but nothing in particular and consequently, they don't carry much very well. They look "cool", but they are not very utilitarian.
