5 Best Garden Tool Belts of 2024, Tested and Reviewed

I’m a big fan of anything that makes gardening more enjoyable and my OCD tendencies love any tool that simplifies and makes organisation a reality. The obverse is tearing my hair out when clutter and disarray rear their ugly heads. So, it’s no surprise that a tool belt would suit my lifestyle completely.

Yet tool belts that builders use aren’t practical for a gardener. Firstly, they sit in front of your stomach and bore into your flesh every time you squat down. Plus, they hardly have enough room to hold any of the tools that gardeners require.

1. Bucket Boss 10030 The Bucketeer Bucket Tool Organiser

Bucket Boss 10030 The Bucketeer Bucket Tool Organiser

This innovative tool belt does not actually go around your waist. It is designed to sit on a standard 5-gallon bucket, which offers tool storage as well as space to throw larger tools, or waste from around the garden.

There are a few of these selling online now, all for around the same price, but this one by Bucket Boss is the best we have found, and they are taking quality seriously.

Its elasticated top makes it a little more versatile, so it fits slightly different bucket sizes, and it is so easy to clean (machine or hand wash) that it can be treated pretty harshly out in the garden and still look good.

For pros and hobbyists alike, this is one of the most universally useful garden tool belts on the market.


  • Easy to use
  • Fits on a bucket for extra tool storage
  • Easy to clean
  • Well stitched
  • Tons of tool compartments
  • Additional loops for larger tools


  • Not wearable

2. Gaucha Designs Leather Garden Tool Belt for Women

Gaucha Designs Leather Garden Tool Belt for Women

This handmade leather tool belt is one of the most gorgeous garden accessories I have ever seen. It’s aimed at women, but let’s face it, any fashion-conscious gardener would look good in this belt.

It is hand cut, seamed, and riveted to provide the best quality finish possible, and is incredibly durable as a result. The tool pockets are generously spaced so you can really cram it full, and the looped belt itself makes it incredibly comfortable.

Whether it is around the garden, or for DIY jobs in the house, this is a tool belt that stands out.


  • Beautifully handcrafted
  • Quality materials
  • Generous pockets
  • Comfortable
  • Durable


  • Needs treating regularly to maintain the leather

3. Esschert Design GT04 Garden Tool Belt

Esschert Design GT04 Garden Tool Belt

These budget-friendly garden tool belts are a dream come true for most gardeners. They are not the best quality tool belts in the world, and they’re not that durable, but they make you feel like a pro.

I have one of the exact same belts from Esschert, and it’s a regular fixture while I’m out working in any garden because it is simple and convenient.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of the handmade, bespoke belts that pop up elsewhere in this guide, but when it comes to convenience, sometimes the simplest tool is all you need.

The wide pockets make it versatile and you can fit anything and everything you need in them, with a few specific holsters for pens and markers to make life easy. 


  • Great value
  • Simple design
  • Comfortable belt
  • Adjustable waist


  • Budget materials

4. KUNN GA01-Khaki Garden Tool Waist Belt

KUNN GA01-Khaki Garden Tool Waist Belt

If you want durability more than space, then this garden tool belt by KUNN is for you. 

It has limited storage pockets and just three clips and carabiners, so there are definitely better value garden belts out there in terms of practical uses, but… it looks good and it’s incredibly well made.

If you need something lightweight and affordable, manufactured to a standard you can really trust, then KUNN have got you covered.

What is pretty good with this tool belt though, is that it’s really comfortable and incredibly simple to adjust the belt size. Partly, that’s down to the clasp, but for the most part, it’s because it's smaller than most – meaning it's less in the way.

So don’t be put off by limited space. If what you really need is a comfortable, lightweight tool belt, this is probably perfect for you.


  • Well-constructed
  • Durable
  • Trusted brand
  • Good value
  • Nice looking tool belt


  • Small tool pockets and limited space

5. Garden Tool Belt by Truly Garden

Garden Tool Belt by Truly Garden

Truly Garden’s offering is not dissimilar to some of the other garden tool belts out there, but it does have a zipped compartment which is potentially very handy.

I say potentially because there is one possible downside to the zip – it will almost certainly snag at some point. Not because it's badly made, or because it is made cheaply, but because that’s what happens with garden tools.

However, if you’re willing to overlook the inevitable and accept that the zipped compartment will eventually just be an open pocket, then there’s nothing wrong with this budget-friendly garden tool belt, which will give you years of joy.


  • Great value
  • Lots of storage space
  • Adjustable belt
  • Comfortable apron (moves easily when bending or kneeling)


  • Zipped pocket not suitable for long-term garden use

Bucket Boss 10030 The Bucketeer Bucket Tool Organiser

The Bucketeer Bucket Tool Organizer by Bucket Boss is one of the best garden tool cases I’ve ever come across. I realise it’s not necessarily a tool ‘belt’, but it has everything you could possibly need from one, and is just as transportable, with far more tool storage options as a result.

For the truly practical gardener who needs everything with them at once, this is the tool case for you.

If you’re out in the garden for hours on end, carting piles of weeds to the compost bin, save yourself a few trips, and make your life that little bit easier with this outstandingly well-made tool belt for the garden by Bucket Boss.

Handy Tools for Your Garden Tool Belt

Gardeners require a different styled tool belt compared to a carpenter's tool belt which is why I love these ones. They are designed to hang at your side rather than around your middle enabling freedom of movement and bigger pockets for all your tools.

But, what’s the point of having a mobile storage unit such as this if it too becomes just another source of clutter? Plant labels, leaf litter, bits of old plastic tie and possibly a few pre-loved tissues always find their way into our once neat and orderly tool bag. Maybe it’s time to reassess and restock?

Tools for Your Garden Tool Belt

Here’s a list of garden tools that I find most useful and would love to have on hand;

  • Secateurs - Which hand pruners? Your choice, but it should go without saying that these are incredibly important in your gardening arsenal. Most garden tool belts have a separate pouch that keeps your pruners close at hand and easy to slip into.
  • Wire-cutters - A very important tool if you grow veggies. Often we trellis our beans, peas and perhaps some of our fruit trees so it’s handy to have a pair of wire-cutters on hand for any makeshift repairs or installations.
  • String - A ball of twine or lengths of nylon pantyhose come in very helpful when you’re wanting to stake plants.
  • Gloves - For those who choose to use them, having a pair of gardening gloves is a great option. Even for those who are reticent to use them, having a pair available can make life a little easier if you ever come across a situation where your bare skin just shouldn’t go.
  • Planting Labels Plant labels are almost one of the most essential items when out in the garden. They certainly help out when you’re trying to keep a record of what’s going in your flower beds.
  • Felt-tip pen - ...and if you’re going to have plant labels on hand, then you might as well have something to write on them, right? Your felt-tip pen is also handy for marking pots and recording info on seed packets, if needed.
Garden Tool Belt
  • Trowel - What gardener could exist without a garden trowel? One of the most versatile tools you’ll keep in your belt, the trowel is essential.
  • Patio Knife - Great for scraping the weeds from between bricks and pavers this versatile tool can also aid in opening bags of potting mix, fertilisers, and manures. Plus, it’s a handy tool for forming drills for your vegetable seeds.
  • Hand Fork - Reliably a great tool when you’re trying to dig up bulbs or other small plants. It helps lift them without removing all the soil.
  • Hand Rake - The rake, as useful as the fork, is also fantastic for scarifying the soil around your plants and removing any surface weeds. Due to its compact size it makes cleaning around plants less intrusive and therefore much safer for your plants.
  • Weed Pullers Hand weeders are great for getting weeds out of lawns or lifting those weeds that have deep roots.
  • Dibber - The final tool you’ll need in your garden belt is the dibber. A must-have for planting seedlings and bulbs, this tool will make your gardening experience much easier and it will fit in compactly.

Pack your garden tool belt with all these goodies and you should be set to head off into your little piece of horticultural frontier.
