    [​IMG][/IMG] I've been window cleaning now for 5/6 months and been busy the last two with it been our summer and getting more work from recommendations, my problem is my boab belt, it is very uncomfortable. I never know whether to tighten it or slacken it. I find it pushes down on my shorts and makes it all a bit uncomfortable. I have a separate belt in shorts then my Ettore pouch and belt. I basically have my boab with scrubber, I don't always have squeegee in it as usually have them in bucket, i have my soap in a pouch on the belt and my cloths so not as much as others carry. Anyone else have issues or how tight they have theirs.

    I haven't worn a belt for 4 months now
    I have a boab cable tied on my wfp trolley
    Feels so good to finally not need to have a belt weighing me down and boab bashing my leg
    Microfibre in my pocket
    Squeegee and applicator in boat (bucket on a trolley lol)
    Bottle of solution on trolley
    Wet applicator and do bottoms no hassle

    It's Ettore mate, it doesn't exactly dig in it just weighs down and when i bend to do a lower window then get up it's all hunched around the waist of my shorts. It's a shame as it's a good belt and pouch. WagtailMat has text me a belt he's got which looks good, i need to get more info from him. [​IMG]

    Hate them, never wear them. Just take what I need before I go up the ladder and carry it.

    Ive got a joiners tool belt, which I use with the BOAB and pockets for cloths etc I still have to watch when jumping gates though as the squeegees can fall out.
