    As title suggests , what’s everyone’s opinion on them?
    May have to consider buying one as the company has supplied new ppe and although nice quality snickers trousers and tee shirts have been provided, the trousers have come without the flappy pockets as most of the lads have tool belts so didn’t want the extra pockets.
    I’m not a fan of the tool belt but may consider buying one as having no flappy pockets to store screws, tools and the like while say doing 1st and 2nd fixing etc will become annoying to me I’m sure.

    Oh and for the fans out there any recommendations?

    Don't the Yanks call them fanny belts or is that something else?

    I'm not a fan either. If I need to keep fixings to hand I'll either use the box they are supplied in or use a screw box, then when I've finished I can save the rest for later.
    If you put too many tools in a tool belt it puts a lot of strain on your back.

    I used to work with a guy who wore a tool belt like a costume accessory - he'd huff and puff around like a steam train with this empty leather tool belt slung over his shoulder as if to say "look at me, I'm a rufty tufty salt of the earth builder type" while everyone else thought he just looked a ****.

    They have there uses if say up a ladder so you can store on your hip various tools etc without going up and down. but can get heavy and in the way when working low and kneeling, I always remember when in the forces you would get the gucci GI's as we called them, mainly private contractor/mercenary sorts .. yanks with belts and leg holders for every type of weapon and shiny tool you could imagine. thought they were a one man army... funny thing was after a few contacts it soon went as it slowed them down and stopped them working aswell as they could have done if they were not weighed down. You can have all the weapons in the world but it doesnt make you invincible from a bullet or ied, likewise a new toolbelt full of tools dont make you a good tradesman either.
