“I really like the organization available with these bags. They are very comfortable to carry. I do a lot of remodel/finish work and end up carrying a lot of miscellaneous handy tools and fasteners all day. The belt sizing is a little weird- I measured, as recommended, and ordered a Medium belt, I’m 6’0” 180’lbs, and it was TOO big. I returned the belt for a small and had to eat the shipping charges. The SMALL fits but the buckle is far off center and the bags sit behind my hip bones. I understand the design and really appreciate the construction of waist belt, but I think there needs to be a S/M size worked into the sizing specs.
I built a custom set with the Miter bag on my dominate side, and the Wrangle on my off side. I REALLY like this set up. It will give me a lot of versatility for a large scope of work. I have found that some of the small sleeves for pencils, nail punches, etc are hard to access because of how the side pouch over laps them. That being said, I am really excited for these bags. I love how modular they are!”
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.
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 had researched several brands before deciding on Diamondbacks. With so many options and not knowing what was best, I settled on the Chopo setup based on the minimal setup. Big enough bag on non dominant side to hold what I need for framing, and small bag on dominant side to reduce carrying too much. Added the suspenders to take some pressure off my hips throughout the day (not a spring chicken anymore). Without a doubt, noticeable difference in weight, distribution and comfort day one. I went 2 weeks without breaking them in (as directed by Diamondback) and still was flexible enough not struggle. Since, have stretch them and enjoy putting my belt on and going to work everyday. Great customer service. Great product. Great craftsmanship. Hope to retire from this profession and walk away still wearing this rig in the way out. Thanks Diamondback!”
“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.)”
