  • “*update 3/13/21* Changed my review from 3 star -> 5star! Reason: My gripe about the shipping cost still remains valid but was heard by the company. I contacted them and asked if they would help cover the return and exchange for the right size belt and they did! So thank you diamondback for standing behind your product and caring about your customer. I now have the BEST tool belt money can buy. Stellar product and service. You earned the 5 star and my lifetime support. —— (Previous review) —— The products are 5 stars but the shipping and return policy is awful. Cost $25 to ship a belt and a pouch. Used the belt guide on the website and it’s to small. Need to order the next size up, now I have to shell out more money to send it back and pay even more to have the right size shipped back. Almost $50 just in shipping to finally get what I need. Be warned of shipping policy! You’re going to be disappointed like I am if you don’t get the right size on the first order. Otherwise great products, highly recommend.”

    “I measured very precisely and followed the directions for fit And I still have to tighten the belt as far as it can possibly go for it to fit. Not so bad when it’s cold out with heavy sweaters on but with just a T-shirt, I hope I don’t lose any weight. I’m 6 ft 185 lbs I definitely like it a lot but the medium should have fit fine. Seems odd. Wish the magnet was stronger. And wish there was just one more pouch on the maestro style for nails so I don’t have to go spend another fortune customizing this. Yes I now realize I should have just gone with the artisan, but I’m still happy”

    “Decided to pull the trigger on a set of the Denali 2.0. Once received (yes it takes a few days to get them) my hands on impressions match my research on the material quality, design, ingenuity, and craftsmanship. I've yet to actually use them but I'm close! I was accidently sent an XL belt last week but I ordered an Large. (no stars removed for a mistake because mistakes happen) The new belt showed up today and I promptly put my bags on it and realized I needed a Medium. You see, they tell you to follow their "Belt Sizing Guide" so you will be able to tighten your belt in the summer. I thought they don't know what they are talking about so I'll be safe and order a size up. NOPE! You can see I have it at the minimum adjustment and it's still too big. I just sheepishly ordered a Medium Belt and even paid for expedited shipping to make it sting a little more. You have to pay to send back your returns and exchanges. This is fair. from what I can tell shipping costs are not washed into product pricing. (I will update this review when I actually start using the bags.)”
  • “Purchased the Diamondback Utility Sheath XL to hold a 14”x 1 1/2” all steel chisel. The sheath clips on easily to my Saratoga tool vest. Sheath is very well made and durable. Great job Diamondback!”
