    I can do most jobs out of my EDC/Work Bag, a Rush 24. However sometimes I need to go out with more than that. Does anyone have any good ideas for a good durable bag with quite a bit of space but still organizable.

    Here are some of the bigger things I would like to carry;
    2 Cordless Drills
    1 Cordless Rotozip
    Soilering Iron Kit (which I would like to find a small case for independently, Iron is around 12")
    Allen Keys
    Smallish Socket Set
    Drill bits
    Enough space for a small box of hardware.

    I appreciate your time and thanks for your thoughts!
    Not top on my list to buy so ill be keeping my eye out for one for a while.

    I've had a couple of the bucket boss gate mouth bags for many years, they seem to hold up around the house and back and for to the ranch on weekends. Lot's of sizes and they're not expensive.

    I would say SOE, like stated above. Or go to Home Depot/Lowes and look through their selection.

    If you're carrying more tools than the 24 can hold, it's going to be heavy. If it's not on wheels, it should have backpack straps. What about the Rush 72? It has even more organization than the 24 does.

    My rush 24 is my EDC bag so I don't need straps on the tool bag, as i would pretty much always be carrying it with the Rush. Not that the rush 24 wouldn't fit all of the tools (not a bad idea just didn't think about it) I already have mine filled with other gear. A messenger style strap would probably be ideal. Yes it will be heavy but hey not much to do about that, most rolling tool boxed i have seen dont seem like they would last. As well as I like the size flexibility of a bag.

    I'll have to look closer at the rush 72

    I am surprised the huskies have held up, I'll take a closer look at them.

    Those Vetos look NICE.

    So many options!

    My Huskies don't hold up at all?
    Some part is always tearing or falling off every time I look.

    I have a Veto Pro Pac ad it is not as useful to my work as I had hoped it would be either.

    The buckets always seem like a better idea than they end up being for me and if I carry parts in them they will always end up spilled and all of it mixed together sooner or later.

    I can't really imagine using any backpack not made for tools to carry tools and don't know why I would try?

    I have been using a small LA Police gear BOB for a few weeks to carry cordless drills and bots,etc and it is pretty handy so far. I ordered 2 of the bigger version last night and will see how they work out to let them get heavier?

    For me multiple smaller bags seem to be easier to handle than bigger ones as the weight gets out of control too quickly. Plus I can organize things by the bag which solves the always bigger problem of needing too many different loadouts depending on the jobs at hand.

    I am just resigned to any tool carrier I find not being ideal for me and I expect to be on the search for new ones all the time as I wear through the ones I already have.

    The only tool box I have that has held up is the Sprinter but it is too big to bring into most jobs!

    Take a look through the Bucket Boss catalog.

    A sampling of their offerings...

    I've got 4 years of serious hard use so for out of my Veto LC and it's still going strong. I've never had another bag or box make it without falling apart. I'm in the event rental business and during my busy season it takes a real beating. I'll post a pic tomorrow.

    I've had my Veto Pro Pac XL for probably 7 years. I don't use it full time anymore but nothing compares for quality hand tool storage. It has a super comfortable handle and a thick plastic bottom that wont fray, every other bag that I have is frayed at the bottom. (except for my klien tool tote) Its by far the most heavy duty bag made.

    I figured since I said I'd post a pic this would be a great time to clean out and organize my bag. I was shocked at the amount of crap I had stuffed in their. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    No wonder my laborers always complain about how heavy it is. It always seems like if I take something out I need it the next day, so I carry a lot.
