I’m looking for a tool belt I can use while doing tree trimming from the ground. I need to be able to attach hand saws & pruners but I don’t always want to wear my climbing harness. Has anyone seen a product like this?

hmmm

cheap tool belt from home depot or lowes? just a few pockets to shove a saw and pruning shears, what all do you typically use when pruning? ive got a scabbard style silky, large folding silky and pruning shears + loppers, works for me, although the 194T gets more use lol

I use a Notch hand saw with scabbard. I want to be able to clip it to the belt. Hand pruners can probably work with most any belt. My big concern is finding something that has places to clip a scabbard to

ohh ok, I think I know what your saying
kinda hard without pics
a boat snap on the scabbard?

I was mistaken. It has a D-Ring that I would attach a carabiner to actually.

Hanging the saw and pruners on my regular belt gets unwieldy and starts to pull my pants down. Just looking for a more rugged option

ok, HERE is a belt I use and love for a fallers belt, will work good for you
supposedly comes with a clip, although I have not bought this exact one, I use the same thing rebranded and sold without the clip
id suggest heating a screwdriver with a torch, and melting a hole in the belt where you want the saw to hang, then get a DMM XSRE carabiner to clip the saw onto the belt through the hole
for the pruners, pruning shear pouch

Thanks. I’m falling down a rabbit hole of belts on Amazon but I’m finding better results than my previous searches

No, and you never will, because that doesn't make sense. Put your 2 handsaws, 1 bowsaw, and 1 folding coarse saw, and your single pair of Felco's, in a Klein bag. Why would a tool belt be more convenient? How much trimming from the ground, will you do? once out of reach, its a pole pruner? Its all about looking professional.....

I often have to walk for blocks at a time trimming trees. I want to be able to carry my pole saw and have my hand saw scabbard and hand pruners attached to a belt of some sort. If my hands are full of poles and a saw head I don’t want to also carry a bag

I clip my felcos on the outside of my hip pocket. I use one of these to clip my handsaw to my normal belt that I wear everyday anyhow.

If that pulls your pants down, just get a second "regular belt" and put that one above your waist line.

I don't care how I "look" - I care that we do a good job above all else...and do it efficiently.

I spent way too much time today researching tactical belts for this purpose. [emoji23]

EVERY pole saw is telecopic, so its 5' long with the blade, and goes over your shoulder....the small tools go in a bag. When you are done walking "blocks"?? to simply do ground pruning, you are carrying a single pole, and a tool bag

OR you can wear a belt with 3 simple tools hanging from it, and appear to all rather an odd fellow. I presume once the pruning is done, you won't be back til next year, so unless you are a wandering pruner, keep it simple. Hands full of poles??
