    Does anyone have a recommendation for a comfortable and heavy duty tool belt of sorts? I'm looking for something that can hold electrical screw drivers, amp probe, wire cutters, gaff tape (probably hanging off via a safety cable of sorts?), electrical tester, electrical tape, etc...

    My favorite place for tool belts and belt tool pouches is Duluth Trading. Quality stuff, and it lasts forever. I have a tool belt from them for when such a thing is necessary. Holds screwdrivers, pliers, multimeter, etc.

    I'll second the above, but with one caveat. They'll send you email advertisements 3-4 times a week unless you tell them to stop.

    I HIGHLY recommend this toolbelt:
    STAGEHAND TOOL BELTS

    I have it and I LOVE it, and all my friends are jealous of it. *grins*

    I also have a flashlight holster that i got from the same site, which is on there along with my leatherman's case. those two items are always on it. If I'm working any call whatsoever, I at least have my toolbelt with flashlight and Leatherman - even if it's a show call. It's black and is essentially invisible, blending in very nicely with my blacks.
    At other times, I have any combination up to and including all of the following on the belt: Gloves, hammer, wonderbar, safety glasses, measuring tape, kneepads, a couple of pencils, and anything else I need to clip onto something.

    It's comfortable and really handy. It has multiple size webbing for different size pouches.

    As a side note, buying from ToosForStagecraft.com was great. They answered all emails quickly, they shipped quickly, and I get no junk mail from them ;)

    Cheers

    I have one of these, but I usually only use one of the pockets.
    The lumbar support belt is kind of bulky and gets in the way if you're moving around, but it is removable.
