    Been looking about for a belt, bag/pouch, BOAB etc.
    The WinSpray looks like a good belt, but can you fit other makes of pouches, bags etc on the belt as the WinSpray is wider than other belts.
    Some of these bags look huge, do they hinder/get in the way while working?

    What does everyone use/prefer.........do I need a pouch AND a bag?
    Would a BOAB be better than just a holster for squeegy's......(BOAB looks a bit clumsy to me, but what do I know :wacko:).

    I don't want to end up looking like that guy in the Unger advert for the 'Ergo Tec Belt System' thingy :D :D :D .

    I got an old belt and put on my own clasps, made my own pockets out of old denim and lined both with waterproofing (old nightclub banner lol). Also made a holster for my litre bottle. Works for me and added bonus I can make em exact size I like.

    I wear these scruffs trousers when I work - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Scruffs-Trade-Trousers-Graphite-Cordura-Work-Pants-NEW-/170669932547?pt=UK_Men_s_Trousers&var=470034026464&hash=item27bcb88003&_uhb=1 - and I just put an unger microfibre in my right pocket and an unger sill cloth microfibre in the other, clip on an ettore BOAB and away I go, that's it. Nice and simple. Used to use all the pouches and etc etc but have managed to cut it all back and this is all I need now..

    Cheers guys.

    With all these things hanging off a belt, does anyone find that they get in the way while working....or do you just get used to it.
    I think I'd feel a bit clumsy with so much attached to me working in confined spaces :huh: .
