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.


Pro Framer Tool Belt Set

Our Pro Framer Set has been the benchmark by which all other tool belts have been measured. Now available in Green and Ultra Black.
