Excellent4.8 Based on 29 reviews from review us onwade M. ★★★★★ I was in today to get fitted for a new pouch. After over 15 years of running the same pouch my biggest fear was having something completely different. Dustin was able to hook me up and get me exactly what I'm use to. Of course totally upgraded! Thank you again.Response from the ownerYou are most welcome. It was great to meet you, Wade! We love helping people find their way into a belt that makes their day to day better. It was great to hear a bit about you and your work. All the best to you, your business, and your crew. Cheers! Joshua D. ★★★★★ Such amazing service! The product quality is unsurpassed, a great experience overall!Response from the ownerIt was so great to meet you guys today! Thank you for coming in. Tanner J. ★★★★★ I purchased the B-max having never worn a front tape bag before based solely on the fact this it was the flag ship product.I’m very impressed with the layout of the bags and ease of access to my tape measure in the front position.I added the LSX bags instead of the standard which I wouldn’t do again and I now know I would have preferred the standard bag.Over all, great product and very well laid out.Response from the ownerThank you, Tanner, we really appreciate your review. So happy you’re loving your B-Max!!

Never been more comfortable on site.Response from the ownerThanks, Nicolai! It’s awesome to hear. Thank you for taking a minute to let people know. Kelson L. ★★★★★ If you think this is specifically for framers or carpenters only, then you can dismiss that thought. The customization at offer makes it possible for any trade to make something that works for the work they do.I really had a niche thought to finish out the setup I had in place and they had so much flexibility that I found exactly what I needed.Shockingly well priced for something hand made with quality leather materials.I cannot recommend it enough to check out what they have to offer if you're interested in something that will last you and serve you.Response from the ownerThank you, so much, for your review, Kelson. We're excited you found just what you were looking for. Thank you for your support! Quinn F. ★★★★★ This is build a bear, for trades workers. I went in and picked out every peice of my rig and it is by far the best and comfiest set up I have used. They set it up for me and helped me size it so i was comfy with support for my lower back, I have non stop compliments since owning it and that's just a small bonus. Thank you guys for helping me pick my new favorite set up!Response from the ownerQuinn! You are so welcome, man. It was awesome to meet you and to help you build what you needed. Thank you for taking the time to write us a review and share your experience. Steve B. ★★★★★ I've had my original rig for probably 15 years now and it was time for an upgrade. The quality of your products are phenomenal. After doing some research, and realizing you're located in BC as well, I wanted to support a local business. I received my B-Max last week, and it's amazing. I went with the diagonal hammer loop, and what a difference it makes. As a renovation carpenter, I feel like I need a little bit of everything in my rig, and the B-Max does the job. I feel like a million bucks wearing it! Thanks again Luke and the rest of the team!Response from the ownerYou are so welcome, Steve! Thank you for your support. We're thrilled that you're loving your B-Max. And we are so grateful for your efforts to support local. It means a lot. Thank you for taking the time to write us and share your excitement and encouragement.

Our Values.

  • 1Efficiency

    Efficiency is in our blood. It’s what can separate good from great. Our belts should help you become as efficient as possible or we’re not doing a good enough job. Our designs come from 20 years of refining workflow while building hundreds of structures and training tradespeople in the pursuit of ultimate efficiency. Our top priority is to deliver high performance features that suit specific needs. Efficiency, form and function.

  • 2Curiosity

    We’ve never stopped wondering "what if" and never will. Curiosity keeps us always wanting to know what’s around the corner. How can we get better? How can our designs serve someone better or in a way we’ve never thought of? We're always looking to see how we can pick up and learn from those who have gone before us. We stand on the shoulders of great craftsmen and seek to continue their legacy. We hope to one day be old dogs who still learn new tricks.

  • 3Respect

    Everyone deserves the highest level of respect. If you’re getting started or in pursuit of mastering your craft, we want to build products to suit your needs and give you a head start in what, for some, takes years to find. Part of respect is good communication. You can be sure that we are committed to communicating where we fall short, never over promising and giving you the quality and detail we promise when we promise. Period.

    Everything wears out over time but we are committed to constantly improving, strengthening and producing an extremely strong, high quality product that serves you well. We will always do everything in our power, in keeping with our priorities, to get you the best materials, to bring a smart approach, and offer quality craftsmanship.

Our Promise.

Akribis leather will never stop evolving and improving. It’s in our DNA to continue to refine the product with Luke at the helm. Every bag, belt and accessory will be handmade and scrutinized for quality. Feedback and improvements are always welcome.

Founder Story.

Luke started working in carpentry in 1996. He has gone on to build approximately 400 homes and has run his own concrete and framing company since 2005. He’s always been a perfectionist with a high value for hard work, accuracy, honesty, and relationship. He treats his employees the way he would want to be treated. After a frustrating 2 years of trying to find a leather tool belt that understood the needs of the trades he ended up making his own. This quickly started to get attention on every job site for its efficiency, quality and proper tool placement. He started making them for his crew and others in the local area. The expansion of this into other trades and modular set ups has grown the product line to serve most trades and ship tool belts around the world. They are still and will remain hand made in Canada to ensure that quality will never be sacrificed and that innovation can continue to happen on the shop floor every day.
