Can any one recommend a set of tool bags


Hi,
I've been searching the web looking for a new set of tool bags and have found many to choose from, but figured I'd see what the actual contractors who are using them say.

Any recommendations on a new set of tool bags?

Thanks

That’s a tough one. It depends on what you’re doing. I’ve had the set I have now for five years or so and haven’t destroyed them yet. Probably paid $70 or so, don’t have a clue on the brand. I like the nylon over leather. Leather gets to heavy when wet.

It’s all about comfort for me. I don’t know if I’d choose online. Go check them out at local stores, try them on, find something comfortable that suits your needs. Then if you want to shop price online for that item, have at it.

Good idea!!

I think nylon is a better choice too there lighter as you mentioned.

Are nylon bags durable? I'd prefer one with stiff sides.

What type of belt does your bags have?

I'm a roofer so I only need a single bag and a new belt.

My belt is nylon too it came with the bags. The nylon bags are very durable and that probably has much or more to do with the stitching than the material itself.

The nylon belts are kind of stiff maybe too stiff you might be better off with a leather belt. There stiff at first but soften up nicely over time.

Like anything else, you only get what you pay for.

That's a nice looking belt/bag combo, and pretty reasonably priced. I think I might be looking more for a belt and bag that are seperate, just in case I decide to rearrange.. I'm assuming its a bag permanently attached to the belt?

Thanks

I think I'm sold on a nylon bag.

So you don't prefer a stiff belt? Just curious why? Must be uncomfortable?

Itís all personal preference. My bags probably weigh 15 lbs. loaded up on a ďdry dayĒ and after 8+ hrs of anything cutting into you itís not what you would call comfortable. The best part of the day is getting rid of them things.

But obviously youíre a young and soon to be roofing star so none of that will bother you like some of us old guys.

Like I said go down to the roofing supply, lumber yard, or box store and check them out. Whatís the rest of the crew wearing? Seems like the first set of bags I bought was what the everyone else had.

You defiantly donít want to show up and be the guy with the goofy bags on.

Yea I see your point, I've been looking around the web for different types of belts and bags and came across this belt, just curious if any one here has ever used it or is aware of it. It looks completely different than any belt I've ever seen. It appears there are a few different models!!

Just curious what any one here thinks about it?

Had a guy on the job site with one. The belt broke while he was on the scaffold and the tools nearly killed the guy underneath him.
