    Toolbag recommendation

    I don't normally brag on things I've purchased, but this toolbag is an exception. I went to a softside case a few years ago, and I still really like this one. It has been tossed, dropped, and generally treated rough since I got it. It has no rips or tears, and the zippers work good as new.. It is so heavy with all the crap I carry in it I would have thought the shoulder strap and/or the strap eyelets would have failed by now, but not so. Good techy product, well worth $55.

    I've given up on them all. Constantly break. I now use a tool roll and it's last years without a single bust stitch or bit of damage.

    Nice 1. Thanks for the heads up.

    I've personally used a Christensens toolbag for over 15 years now. Everything still works 100%

    I have been using a medium size ABS case from Crawford Tool for decades. After several years the handle wore through, and they supplied me with a replacement. A few years later, one latch wore out. Although they don't list them on their website, it took one phone call to obtain replacements.

    Here in South Africa we used to support Christensen Tools who sold the CK line of tools can cases.

    Well made things, but the exchange rate is a real bugger.

    We switched to Stanley Fat Max tool backpacks and use Mastercraft tools -which seem to take the beating well, especially the phillips heads being used in dev covered units all day, are holding up well. Best of all is, they don't cost half of CK!

    Also Mastercraft is sold by all the big box stores in the Wallmart group, so if you break or lose one, you can always replace it cheaply and easily!

    This bag really impressed me and even the supplier. Showed them the condition of my bag when i went to get a new one after 3 years it looked rough but zips and stitching held up real well. Its been said that i am hard on things.

    Very practical layout, having it on your back frees you up to lug more boxes around with you.
