"I felt compelled to write a review about this tool vest after having seen the negative (and grossly unfair) comments submitted by another reviewer.
The tool vest can be purchased in two different materials. The first being Cordura which is a very strong material commonly used in motorcycle clothing and is probably not the ideal material. The other option is a cotton/polyester mix which is what I bought from Screwfix and it feels and looks as if it will last for years.
The cotton/polyester material feels great and the back is made out of a strong mesh material which will help to keep you cool. It also has a front zip extender that is held in place (and out of sight) by velcro, this means that if required you can extend the size of the vest by simply undoing the velcro straps which lets you wear it over a jacket.
There are plenty of different sized usable pockets and loops, plus you can also buy (although not from Screwfix) additional tool pockets that can be mounted onto the waist of the tool vest by using the very strong velcro straps. The holder for the hammer holds my 20oz Estwing hammer and if you don't like it you can remove it as it is also held on by the velcro straps. If you are a tradesman or tradeswoman and value quality you will not be disappointed by this tool vest.
All in all it is an excellent tool vest at the top end of the market as far as tool vests go. I am an Electrician and have tried various cheaper tool vests over the years but none compare to the Snickers vest. Mind you if you do buy one, be warned, if you leave it lying around it will get knicked.
For the benefit of those who read the other review. If you use a toffee hammer please note that it will fall through the hammer holder, and if you are on a ladder and bend down (for whatever reason) then stuff will fall out of your pockets, but honestly, what do you expect."

Review 2 for Snickers Flexi Toolvest Black X Large 49" Chest
This review is from Snickers Flexi Toolvest Black Medium 41" Chest.
"Great for finding your tools because you know where they are and there close at hand. say you have to go up a ladder- this is what you will need. I would also recommend an additional toolbelt and holster for your drill/bucket holder for screws e.t.c. I would not use this product in attics or in locations where you're liable to bend down because you could lose your tools and you have restricted movement whilst wearing one."

Review 3 for Snickers Flexi Toolvest Black X Large 49" Chest
This review is from Snickers Flexi Toolvest Black Large 44" Chest.
"Bought this as I thought that it would be a great addition to my kit and help me when I was up a ladder. Oh how wrong! You bend forward everything falls out the hammer loop doesn't hold a hammer properly and it is made from the worst material I have ever seen! It is certainly not worth the price. Don't buy it!!!!"
