Excellent4.9 Based on 41 reviews from review us onAlan T ★★★★★ If you’re looking for a new set of bags i highly recommend Akribis Leather. Great quality and design. Have had for over 6 months they’ve held up great. I will be ordering a custom set soon!Response from the ownerThanks, Alan! We appreciate your support. Carlo D. ★★★★★ Exceeded any and all expectations I had for their products, the tape holder on the SLT Max took about a week to break in nicely, I carry a 35’ Milwaukee and I have no issues whatsoever taking it in and out, the pencil holders on the R1HBD+ also took about a week to break in nicely and the diagonal hammer sheath is super convenient. As if they weren’t light enough already, matched up with their suspenders the rig feels super light and comfy. Another thing I love is the capability of being able to swap/replace the fastener bag on their left side bags incase your needs at work change or if in the DISTANT future you need to swap it due to wear and tear. All around amazing product, super comfy, efficient tool placement all around, will definitely buy another set if the need ever comes due to how well built they are!Response from the ownerSo good to hear, Carlo! Thank you for your review and for your support, it means a lot. Mitchell E. ★★★★★ Love my tool belt. Got all the bells and whistles on it and use it every dayResponse from the ownerThanks, Mitchell!

Thank you for your support. Bedford HVAC Solutions L. ★★★★★ I bought the B mini front worn for sheet metal work (HVAC) and this thing is by far the nicest belt for what I need/want on the job. I’ve tried so many different pouch setups before trusting a standard off the shelf setup From Akribis and this thing is honestly the perfect tool belt for what I need. The options available make Akribis the best place for any trade to buy a tool belt.Response from the ownerJon! Thank you for your review and for your support. We're so pumped to hear that the B-Mini is just what you were looking for. Garrett D. ★★★★☆ I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality and build of these bags. I've purchased several pairs and each has had a unique experience. Some things could be better by improving variety and placement of various pockets and tools. However, they've been some of the best pairs I own, especially for the price. It's been awesome.Response from the ownerThank you, Garrett, for your support and feedback! Wil. P ★★★★★ After being on the fence for a while because of the price, I took the leap and got an Akribis setup and I’m SO happy I did. Went in to the storefront location in Summerland to get fitted for a new framing setup and much needed upgrade from my old Dewalt pouch. From the moment I walked in I was kindly greeted and helped all the way through the process. The people in that shop are the best! Super kind, helpful and professional and at the same time they didn’t push any products on me. Bought a full kit and have been framing with it for just about a week and without a doubt worth every penny. Would absolutely recommend their product, the quality is so top notch. When the time comes for another, you can bet I’ll be buying Akribis again! 10/10Response from the ownerWil! Thank you for coming in. It was great to meet you. Thank you, so much, for your support and for taking the time to write us a review. Cheers! wade 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!! Josue H. ★★★★★ Compré una SLT Max y es la mejor bolsa de herramientas que he tenido...se ve hermoso y se siente muy suave la textura del cuero tiene un diseño perfecto, la calidad del cuero es increíble 👌 Akribis Leather lo mejorResponse from the ownerThank you, so much.

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.
