Well, my carpenters rig is getting pretty shot. I've been abusing her for about 10 years now.
I use the man-made nylon type but today I spent 30 minutes in the tool shop looking for a new rig. I couldn't decide so I just gave up and left.
What r your suggestions for a new set of bags? Manufacturers? Leather vs ballistic nylon?
I definitely want a WIDE belt - my back just isn't what it used to be.
And unlike some guys... i really love to load my bags! i dont mind carrying extra weight around just so i can have everything i need.
I am a framer / log builder / general carpenter. I always carry paw / titanium -w- wood / speed sq / loose 16s & 8s and screws / sticks of 8s & 16s / chalkbox / fat max / several nail sets / 1200 pencils / markers etc.
