Innovation Over Time

The construction of housing is becoming exponentially more complicated. The choice of materials is greater than ever before, safety has been emphasized more than it ever has been in the past, and precision is now the standard expectation. Just 20 years ago, most houses were built from exactly the same stuff. There was a consistent formula that was used everywhere: concrete or stacked-block foundations, lumber from mudsills to roof rafters, plywood sheathing, housewrap on the walls and fiberglass batts in the framing cavities. Today, there are countless variations to the formula with which to construct a house. Builder’s jobs are more complicated than ever before, and this trend is only likely to continue. As we’ve seen housing go through these drastic changes, we’ve seen trades such as remodeling needing to adapt along with it. 

Not only are houses’ constructs changing, but so are the tools that are used to build and remodel them. Technological advances have altered the way that remodeling is performed. Take one of the most common pieces of technology in the world for example, the cell phone. For better or for worse, the cell phone changed the way people work around the world. It is no different in the remodeling trade. While it was once necessary to carry numerous blueprints around the job site, the cell phone has changed this through easy access of PDFs. Another recent advancement that helped to shape remodeling was the dust collection/ extraction system. The progression of dust collecting systems in the 20th century has allowed tradespeople to finish their job at speeds that were previously unheard of. The trade is constantly evolving, as tools are continuing to do so with it. By examining different trends among the trade, we have been able to develop tool belts that adhere to the specific needs that remodelers have. 

Remodeling Today

Puzzling together all the tools that are needed to do work on a home can be difficult to say the least. So, it makes sense that no two tradesmen/women will perform their work in the same way. Everyone has their own personal preference on where they want their tools to be, and how they should be organized. So, what is the best possible pouch setup for remodeling? It all depends on your personal workflow. 

Through input given by tradesmen throughout the country, we’ve developed pouches that will adhere to your everyday needs in your specific trade. Whether you prefer to pack everything into your belt or prefer more mobility on the site, the Diamondback® pouches and systems will accommodate your everyday remodeling needs. Through our choice of complete systems, you will be able to find the tool belt that is designed for your specific workflow.

    “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.)”
  • “*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 wasn’t sure about this rig at first. I tried the Denali setup on the 701 vest. Turns out I absolutely love it. I hate trips back and forth to the truck or tool box. I have a specific framing rig setup, but I carry things I ALWAYS end up using throughout the day. I used occidental for a couple years but my back has been giving me fits- not because of the occidental bags but because (apparently) I’m not in my 20’s anymore. The vest takes a huge load off my hips and I keep the vest belt tight around my waist. The shoulder support coupled with the belt not sagging has been SUCH an improvement. I really like the hammer holster in the front, it gets in the way climbing through rafters so I just move the hammer to the back loop- so easy. I LOVE the dedicated spot for a screw gun. The one improvement over occidental is that the rear cats paw sleeve as well as the sleeve for your combo square are much more accessible. I had to contort myself to see where I was reaching on the occidentals. The wrangell pouch sits lower and allows me to easily turn my head and slide everything where it goes. It sounds petty but if you’re on a roof screwing around in a tight spot trying to put your tools away while your buddy is squawking at you- it IS a big deal. There is one buckle on the right side that won’t stop maladjusting in my side. It annoys me but I think it’s because I have a lot crammed in the Elías pouches. The other thing is, sometimes when I bend forward the bags flop forward, BUT, nothing has ever fallen out of the pouches. Ever. That is a huge bonus because stuff would fall out of my occidental rig if I leaned too far forward. Overall five stars. The pictures are from working on my house and helping a buddy on his project.”

    “I purchased the GRRande bags. Great fit and comfortable. I can have 12 racks of 16 gun nails and my impact hanging and my gun hanging on the opposite and I can bend down and pick up a 2x6 before I climb up a ladder. Very well built. Are they worth the money? Time will tell... that said I recommend you give them a shot. Most comfortable bags I’ve worn and can carry all the weight you need and weigh less than leather bags AAAaaaaand I can fit through spaces that other bags say “no chance friend””
