I was designed without much of a butt so I almost have to use suspenders if I'm going to wear a belt for any length of time. I'm impressed with the Occidental belt and suspenders. I prefer leather but I know a lot of guys like the nylon stuff. I'm still using my Klein pouch but the next one will be Occidental. It might be a while though because the Klein is a fairly rugged pouch! I do have a smaller Greenlee pouch that works fine for resi rough-in work.
