ProFramer Package -- The Best Purchase Ever
I have used these bags 5, 6, sometimes 7 days a week since they were purchased. They have seen weather ranging from 100 degrees to 0, rain, snow, and many other harsh elements. I have to say without a doubt that they have been the best tool purchase I've ever made!

Proud to be Wearing Your Bags
The envy started when they realized things like hammers and fastenings don't fall out, there is a place for a speed square (which was also a novelty), and I didn't have to leave the roof every time I needed some odd tool - It was always in my bags.

22 Years with his 5080
I had sent my bags of 22 years in to be repaired, now mind you it took 22 years till they needed it! Not only did they take care in fixing them, they were beyond professional in all aspects of their customer service!!!!!

13 years and still going strong
In 1998 I purchased one of your green belt systems, and it has lasted 13 yrs of abuse!! I find that to be amazing. As I watch other carpenters around me buy belt after belt mine stayed strong.

An Email for Occidental Leather
I was appalled to pay the price I did for your tool bags. I swallowed hard and ordered them, hoping it would pay off. That was 15 years ago, and it has indeed paid off, many times over. ... I figured I have strapped on this tool belt about 3500 times since I bought it, and it has never let me down.

After picking up the 9596 for myself a couple months ago, my co-worker made a move on the 5590 last week. Your belts vastly improve our working rhythm as electricians.

5078 - Pro Carpenters™ Tool Belt Package
It is an unbelievable product line and one that is well worth the investment. The one vice my husband has that I fully support.
Rykene, Norway
Never wants to take them off!
The only way I can think of to describe them is, buttery smooth comfort and rock solid craftsmanship together for the first time in a real nice set of bags. Thanks for taking pride in your work and making it possible for us carpenters to look good while we do the same.

More than 40 years ago, disappointed with the awkwardness of his tool belt and unable to find a good alternative, Darryl Thurner took matters into his own hands. Based on his own on-the-job experience, he went to a saddle shop and had a high-quality, rugged belt built to organize his gear in a far more intuitive way.

Today that tradition continues for trades of all types. Whether you’re an electrician, a framer, or simply left-handed, Occidental Leather has the products you need to take your work to the next level, backed by our exceptional customer service and support.
