Forge Steel Tool Belt with Holster & Pouch
Most comfortable belt around
Really great product. Comfortable to wear and very practical. All the pockets are great sizes and plenty of extras for bits and pencils. Really great value as well.

Good tool belt
Seems to be tough and well made. I'm a DIY'er so haven't used for long periods, but it feels comfortable.
There isn't that much storage space. The pockets in front of the drill holder are so tight they're unusable. Also the middle pocket narrows at the top so I can't get my hand into it - so it can't really be used for small things like screws, you can only really slot things in which protrude out the top.
The drill holder is open at the bottom, so it can't double as a bit pocket - which makes sense - if it had a bottom, you wouldn't get a drill with a bit into it! but it would have been nice if it could have had a couple of press studs at the bottom to seal it, so it could been used as a big pocket.
I have a Dewalt drill and an old cheap drill which tall and slim and a different shape to the Dewalt, both sit securely in the drill holder without the need for the strap - so if you're not moving/bending too much, you don't really need to strap the drill in - which is really good.
It looks good but is a touch bulky. The tape measure holder is great, but with a big tape measure on it, it sticks out quite far from my leg, but I'll get used to that - I have to walk through my narrow French door sideways!
The belt is a wee bit annoying in that it has both Velcro and a plastic clip. It feels very secure round my waist, but when putting it on, the plastic clips can slip back though the belt loops, so it can be a bit of a faf getting it on - but I'll get used to this - refining how I store it - so not a big problem.
So overall I'm please with it, but I'll be buying the electricians pouch for extra storage space and switch between this and drill holder depending on the job. Each of the 3 pouches slides on the belt and are removable, so I can take the drill pouch off and put a different pouch on.

What to use it for?
Let me start by saying that there is nothing wrong with this product. It has lots of useful compartments to put tools of all shapes and sizes in, as well as a drill/driver holder as the images show. You'll have room for all of your fixings too, and the belt is comfortable enough and easily adjustable.
Now, just imagine what it might feel like when you have all these tools in the belt, think of the weight, and how that weight might be distibuted when the drill/driver is in situe on one side. I certainly didn't think this through before I bought it and as a result it is rarely used because it doesn't suit my work. ie you're not going to walk very far with this thing fully laden! However, for ladder work, it's brilliant. Also came in handy when putting up a big run of fencing--everything nice and easy to hand.
