I am looking to build a grip belt kit and was wondering where's the cheapest place around LA to pick up some gear. Thanks!

Filmtools is a good place if you're in the valley, although for your purposes I would go to Mole Studio Depot on La Brea-- they have a huge selection of belts and pouches. The new Filmtools location might be just as good, but I haven't seen the new digs yet.

Go Home Depot...or another hardware store
And buy a regular tool-belt, and buy a strong pouch that can hold your tools.

A grip's belt doesn't have to be a spealized accessory, it just needs to hold your tools.
So save yourself the money--most of those Setwear and Filmtools accesories are overpriced.
