Strap on the Right Roofing Pouch Tool Carrier for You

When a roofer is told he should consider dropping a little weight around his waist, he (or she) has to chuckle. Wielding heavy tools with grace and dexterity is a roofer’s specialty and to help them keep everything they need within arms’ reach, they strap that ingenious invention called a tool belt around their haunches. The only weight problem a roofer has is having too little in their roofing tool belt! Instead, they load up to avoid unnecessary trips up and down a roofing ladder.  There are many brands out there and we sought out a few of the best tool belts to share with you. So, buckle up and check out these fine roofing belts.
Boulder roofing Tool Belt
It’s nice to know that in a world full of brands that try to be all things to all people, there are a few that are dedicated to perfecting a very specific accessory for roofers – roofing tool belts! With the Boulder Bag Carpenter, the tools you use will always be within a quick, easy reach.
Occidental Leather roofing Tool Belt
Constructed of premium top-grain, tanned cowhides, leather tool belts by Occidental meet the demands of use under any elements. Copper rivets reinforce this roofing belt and resist rust. Perfectly-placed tool holders keep roofers working strong. Here’s a leather roofing pouch tool holder that’s truly engineered for the modern builder.
Diamondback Roofing Tool Belt

A master carpenter and a chiropractor came up with Diamond Tool Belts in the early 1990s in order to reduce the chance of back injury. Diamondback’s GRRand model is specially designed for framers and roofers. When you’re on a roof, there’s more to focus on than just swinging a hammer or pushing a shingle scraper. You’re thinking about safety and balance. Keep your eyes on the job while you reach instinctively into the roofing tool belt’s big open pouches – no button or clips to distract and occupy your attention unnecessarily.

BucketBoss roofing Tool Belt

The folks behind Bucket Boss use brains over brawn when it comes to carrying tools around. They got their start with the smart idea of modifying the basic 5-gallon bucket by creating a multi-pocket canvas lining to hold tools and get to them easily! Today BucketBoss makes equally sensible tool belts. Thick steel grommets make adjusting the belt securely and with ease. pouches can be detached and relocated on the belt if needed. There’s one steel hammer holder and an additional loop for other tools with handles.

Taurus roofing Tool Belt

From the roof climbing Kiwis over in New Zealand comes the Super Yankee for right-handers and the Super Yankee for…. you guessed it, left-handers! Both belts are made of thick, indestructible leather and are designed for convenient access to your most important roofing tool – your roofing hammer. Southpaws rejoice, finally there is a piece of roofing equipment made for you, not just those all-to-common righties.
