The Occidental brand is synonymous with quality and durability. Their Leather Tool Bags, Belts and Tool Pouches are second to none. Not only are they a convenient storage bag but they also protect the valuable tools from damage, decay or other harm. Occidental saw the need for quality tool belts and launched their line of belts that are functional yet complement the modern trades person. Since 1980, Occidental has been providing the highest quality tool belts, bags and accessories to distributors, stores and end users. All of their bags are hand made in Sonoma County, USA from the finest materials. They even make a beltless bag system, such as the model 5093, when conditions do not permit a conventional system. This sense of innovation, along with their dedication to quality, is what sets them apart from the other manufacturers. If you are looking for a high quality leather belt system, trust Occidental with your storage needs.
All contents are brand new from the factory. The factory packaging may be damaged but otherwise these are brand new tools with brand new tool warranties.
"Open Box" Items originate for multiple reasons.
Sometimes during shipment from the manufacturer item packaging gets damaged but the contents are factory new
Sometimes in our own Distribution Center (DC) mis-handling occurs and damage to the packaging occurs. Especially in the cold months. Plastic wrapping gets cold, brittle and breaks away.
Within our DC, during "front line" replenishment from overstock locations, damage to packaging occurs and tags get pulled off.
Upon receipt of items into our distribution center, items are routinely opened to verify certain info to be the best they can at item web pages. For instance:
Contents of the package (What's in the box)
Description of items and contents
Specifications of items and contents
Images of items and contents
Also in order to maintain the highest levels of service to you the customer, we do periodic random checks of items for all of the above.
Open box items are not necessarily always in a "box". They also include items that are wrapped, bagged, etc. and who's packing has been opened.
Open box items have limited quantities on hand and we can't guarantee their availability. We sell these items on a first come, first order basis.
Generally we have quantity on hand if you see an order button. But because of website limitations we are not able to update these item pages up to the minute. You will be notified as soon as we download your order if we do not have availability.
