    you like them better than an occidental system? by the looks of them they dont seem to be as high quality but we all know looks can be decieving.. and im not crazy about nylon bags.

    The stats are pretty impressive I admit. Occidental is made in the usa too, I used to use fabric but I dont trust them anymore, I use fixed blade utility knives and they used to cut them all the time. and occidental bags look quite nice :)

    I have been told that MTM is reorganizing their company. They have not answered the phone in a month. I'm still baffeled that I cannot find anyone online or elsewhere that sells them. I have an Occidential setup now which has foam between the nylon layers and they never break in. The Mtm bag that I've seen softens up but still holds the stuff in the bags. Their website is great at showing the large selection they have. (www.mtmbags.com)

    I used a MTM bag for about 4 years or so. I liked the three bags - one for fasteners, one for tools, and one for miscellaneous stuff. However, when the plastic belt latch and the velcro started to wear, the bags began to droop. I spent way too much time trying to cinch the belt tight. I thought that replacing the plastic latching belt with a leather belt would help, but I found that that was really uncomfortable.

    I recently got the Occidental Pro Framer bags (5080?) and I love them, even though it has one less bag than the MTM rig. Even though I can't carry as many fasteners, I find that I can still carry the same amount of hand tools.

    Frankly, I was kind of disappointed in the MTM bags. I used them during summer breaks home from college and a couple of Saturdays over the course of a semester during that time, and then full time for about a year and a half. I figured they would last a lot longer, especially since I take good care of my gear.
