    This is an old EMT box. I used to do one of those Husky tool bags. They are nice but, I would have to hunt around the pockets for tools. This way just pop it open and you are ready to go

    I am an urban commuter and use a pelican 1510 and a back pack

    While not a carpenter or full on tradesman I often pack quite a bit for work in the television and film world.
    Meters some testers laptop tablet etc and some belt packs in the backpack
    Rest of the stuff is in the pelican case.
    Some days it's harness helmet and rope mist days it's various hand tools amd tool belt
    In cheap,husky or Klein bags and a small impact driver and screw gun.

    The carry strap attaches to the top of the bag with hook & loop. Nice feature.

    I gave up on large heavy tool boxes awhile ago. My 'mobile' setup lives in my truck toolbox and I have everything separated into different tool bags. I bought a bunch of Husky bags on sale from Home Depot and have bags labeled Metric, SAE, Ratchets, Screwdrivers, Electrical, Fabrication, Straps/Tiedowns, and some other misc units. If I need to work on a metric car, it gets the Metric and Ratchets bag which has everything I need in easy to carry bags and can easily get tools where I'm going rather than lugging big :censored: tool boxes that are heavy.

    Im curious about how you handle the sockets. Im sure i would end up dropping one end of the ball chain and spilling the sockets. Do you have a way to prevent that?

    I really want to try out a Veto. Question, the one thing that drives me crazy about all tool bags, the screwdriver slots on inside just NEVER seem to hold screwdrivers right. The pockets are either too narrow (and spaced right beside each other not taking account for the wider handles) or are too short & the screwdrivers fall out randomly.
    I plan on reviewing some load outs on these bags but what say you owners? Did Veto make this right?

    I didn't find them right?
    I wanted to love mine for a while but finally just use it now for storage of spare tools.
    Like you said the slots just did not work for me but more than that there is just way too much material and it gets in the way of fitting tools in slots for me.
    I have decided that of all things the Home Depot Tool Wall bags seem to get that the least wrong for me and so most of my bags right now are Huskys.'
    Wish it was not so but......

    I've been using this Rigid box for my EDDC (everyday drill carry ) for about 5ish months now. It's heavy but I love the side handles (actually they are interlocks for multiple boxes) but I lift it all the time with the handles cause it stands vertical in a narrow slot by the back door of my van.
    heavy heavy box but I like the features and it pretty much gets used multiple times a day[​IMG]
