Atlas 46 Vests
« on: November 22, 2017, 02:06 AM »
Hey folks

Looking at the atlas vests (atlas46.com) instead of a tool belt. Just wondering if anyone has one. If so, do you like it and which vest do you have

They look like the festool shop apron but on steroids!  Ok with more pockets and padded shoulders.

I have the Saratoga with various accessories. I transitioned to this from a CLC typical leather rig with suspenders. While the vest does hang on my shoulders as did the CLC, I find that if one cinches the vest tight, the weight is more evenly distributed across my upper body.

One thing I can note from personal experience is if you do place an order, buy the preassembled kit that most closely meets your needs.  I bought mine ala carte and for what I spent I could have gotten more pouches/accessories.

I am a carpenter who frames about 30% of the time and finishes about 70% of the time. If I were to do it again, I would buy this one and simply interchange accessories to suit the needs of my particular work assignment:

Good luck.
