Default Brown bag company electricians rig

I'm thinking about buying this Brown Bag Company Electricians Rig it really looks nice and comfy and just wondered if anyone had one and what they think about it. Is it worth the $129 asking price or not.

I guess it would be fine if you wanted to carry all the tools you own at one time. I think it would wear me out just having that much weight strapped to me let alone trying to actually work (not that I do anymore)

Guess I've just never seen the time where I had to carry that many tools at once.

Looks like it would hold a six pack comfortably......

If you need shoulder straps to hold up your tools, you're carrying too much.

Thing looks like it weighs more than the crap you'll be filling it with.

Think 10 years down the line and protect your back. If you have that much space you will carry too many tools.

I got a belt from Rack a Tiers. I already have pouches, so I didn't replace them, and I don't like the suspender setups. Anyway, the Rack a Tiers belt (you can have it with pouches, with suspenders, or plain) is one of those wide padded belts. It feels great, I told my helper it was like being molested by angels.

I have to wear suspenders since any tool belt I have seen doesn't fit my girlish 31 inch waist They just slide right off.
