    You get nifty backpack style laptop bags with room for basic tools, screwdriver's tip will stick out between the zippers but its easy to you pull it out.
    I am still using the old heavy bag but i'm going to get one soon.

    I picked up one of these a while back: www.techni-tool.com/758CA820 There's a flap on the bottom that's secured with velcro, a zipper on each side, and then you could slide a small laptop under the top portion of the bag. My 15" thinkpad wouldn't quite fit, though. Also - and maybe more important, this one doesn't have ANY inside pockets.

    I went ahead and took the plunge. I'm switching to a backpack. I ordered one from tecra today. I will post back if I can fit my tools and​ a laptop... and paperwork folder. And my rags and bottles. And all that good stuff.

    Re: toolbags

    I should probably convert. My case exceeds 38# without the laptop. Maybe the answer is to create bags for specific purposes, i.e.: Networking, Sharp specific, Toshiba specific, soldering kit, infrequent usage tools, etc.

    I'm a collector of-a-sort of tools. I can never seem to remove a tool once I've added to the kit. I'm sure my back will rebel eventually, but for now I can still carry it.

    If you're looking for recommendations, my recommendation is " ... not like me". =^..^=
    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    I do the same. I even have a bit of first aid in there.

    Re: toolbags

    Here's the thing. When this thread first came up, I thought, "I'm carrying too much. I should lighten my load. I don't need half this sh$t. Like these snap ring pliers. When's the last time I used these? I could leave these home."

    Then, yesterday, guess what I needed. They're staying in the kit.
