Best Belt for Landscapers

with the constant struggle of using leather belts for work and having pruning shears, iphone, utility knife and fire dept pager on my side all day and having these ordinary belts droop i found a awesome alternative. with being a fire fighter we are assigned BDU uniforms which consists on a 5.11 brand belt used by police officers to carry all their gear on their waste all day. any guy still using a dress belt for work needs to reconsider!

I'm all about my cam lock (pressure lock) belts. I can get it cinched up correctly each time.

My wife gives me crap and calls them junior high belts. I don't mind though... Pfffffft

regular causal leather belt about 1.5" tall...i've been wearing one belt for the last 6 years....works fine with everything, cell phone stays in my truck so i don't break it or damage it, keys stay in the truck, pruning shears and utility knife can go on the ground when i'm not using them or my back pocket, this isn't rocket science no need to reinvent the wheel here. and my pants or shorts never fall down!!!! ever, crazy right...... i'm also not trying to conceal a pistol while working either.
