Belt Free Systems


Occidental Leather Belt Free Systems

If you are wearing a traditional tool belt system and are suffering from lower back or hip pain, an Occidental Leather Belt Free System or Tool Vest is a must-try. The belt free systems focus on a shoulder worn method of carrying tools, resulting in an equal weight distribution of the load to the upper body and torso instead of the lower back. The ergonomic design ensures maximum on-the-job comfort, less fatigue and of course no more lower back pain. Most systems come with padded shoulder support with a specially lined fabric that wicks away moisture to keep you dry even on the hottest days. We even offer tool vests with open backs to keep you cool and allow for maximum airflow. These beltless tool systems are backed by Occidental's two year limited warranty and lifetime repair service (stitch and riverts).

Even load distribution throughout the upper torso unlike tradition tool belts that put all the stress on the lower back and hips. Say goodbye to lower back pain.

These belt free systems and vest are hand made in the USA with the finest materials and to the highest production standards. Occidental Leather is quality you can trust that will last for years to come.

How to Care for your beltless tool system

All leather used in the production of Occidental's belt free and vest systems is custom tanned to meet the demands of heavy, outdoor use, and requires little maintenance. About once a year, we do recommend using a leather cleaner, saddle soap, or simply warm soap and water to clean the leather portion of the product. You should follow this with a light application of a non-oil based leather conditioner or a light coating of petroleum jelly (some oils and oil based conditioners may decompose threads and shorten the life of the leather). It is important to remember to always wash mud, concrete, and other job-site debris from leather surfaces with a damp cloth before it drys and draws out the natural oils in the leather. This can be done as needed depending on your working environment.
