One pocket is lined with a plastic shield for safely holding blades and other sharp tools. A side pouch and the hammer holder are removable and have integral clips for belt attachment.
The vest can be worn alone or in combination with auxiliary tool and fastener bags or a drill holster. All are made from durable nylon and clip to steel D-rings along the lower edge of the vest.
