Task Tools T77265 Carpenter’s Apron, Oil-Tanned Split with Leather Belt, 12-Pocket  ★★★★★

The Task Tools Carpenters Apron is a great buy with 2-Inch-wide heavy-duty saddle leather belt. It’s made from oil-tanned split leather and has 12 various-sized pockets. The PROS of the Task Tools T77265 Leather Tool Belt are that it’s made from leather, has 12 various sized pockets, is a 45″-50″ belt size (though specs show 32″) and is light-weight. The CONS of the Task Tools T77265 Leather Tool Belt  are that it is moderately expensive and has a larger belt size (excess belt for smaller waists). This leather tool belt is different from the others in the group because; it’s leather, it has more pockets than most, and it’s long enough to fit almost any size waist.

NOTE: Many online reviews, while stating the belt is excellent, of good quality, etc., give the Task Tools T77265 tool belt a few less stars than they normally would due to its overall length. We, however, believe that to be a plus – not a negative. In researching other tool belts, we discovered that many are not long enough!
