It all depends on the work you are doing. On Residential and Commercial jobs tool and part pouches are the way to go. If working with mc and emt it is nice to have the parts in a pouch to keep you more efficient. Industrial jobs you are most likely not going to need a bunch of different tools so just some bibs or a small pouch works great.

I've been doing electrical work for 20+ yrs. most of that has been service work, commercial and industrial, some residential.

My tool pouch is similar to this, leather belt and pouches, same setup with a parts pouch on one side and a tool pouch on the other. Years ago I tried the tough nylon type fabric (cordura?) pouches that Klein made, I hated them they were too floppy. I had the perfect excuse to go back to leather after I ruined the nylon set by working in a sewage treatment plant, yes, what you think happened, happened!

I also need suspenders to keep the whole rig from pulling my pants down, yeah I look like a dork but it works for me. Ive become so dependent on them that I feel "naked" without. My productivity slows down a lot without having everything I need right there on me. Except for break and lunch my "rig" stays on me all day. The suspenders keep most of the weight on the shoulders and so far I've avoided back issues.

The problem with having everything right there on you is that I always get new guys thinking Im some walking supply house. They try to bum straps, fasteners, connectors, etc. that they are too lazy to get. Their like dogs begging at the dinner table, if you never feed them in the first place they won't beg. Well, most dogs that is!
