The Diamondback 701 Vest is one of our hottest items.

Now in stock, the 701 is the lightest, most durable and adaptable construction tool belt vest on the market. A single layer of military-grade nylon mesh will stand up to any jobsite while keeping you cool and comfortable. We designed the 701 tool vest to provide coverage where you need it while maximizing breathability with open shoulders and under arms and a tapered back panel. Adjustable shoulder straps and a built-in waist belt will replace both your belt and suspenders to evenly distribute weight throughout your shoulders, waist and torso.

Attach any Diamondback pouch or accessory to the waist belt or torso attachment points for complete modularity. Two bands of heavy duty elastic at the top of the back provide shock absorption and access to safety harness connection points. The waist belt adjusts at the rear so there is no buckle to damage cabinets or other surfaces for trim carpenters and installers. The three adjustment straps under each arm allow our standard size to fit most users. There is a hanging strap at the top of the back for when you are ready to set your Vest aside at the end of the day.

Is the 701 Vest as strong as a leather?


All Diamondback products are made with 1000 Denier(a measure of thickness) Nylon. 1000D Nylon has an abrasion resistance(the ability to resist wear) and tear strength greater than leather. See this chart :

[Materials] [Pounds of force until it tears] [Abrasion cycles on pavement until fabric fails]
Jeans 4.5 lbs 50 cycles
Leather 80-110 lbs 1200-1700 cycles
1000D Nylon 110 lbs 1780 cycles
*source High Performance Textiles and Their Applications

1000D nylon is so strong that it:
  • Was used in tires in World War II
  • Replaced leather in light combat boots for the US Army in the 1990s
  • Is used in high performance mountain climbing gear
