I NOTICED THAT THE NUMBER OF TOOLS IN MY GARAGE HAS GROWN TREMENDOUSLY OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS.
SO I FIGURED, I NEEDED A TOOL BAG.
Many people think that a tool bag is only for professionals like electricians, plumbers, or carpenters.I beg to disagree.
Even DIYers like me should invest in a tool bag. After all, tools are rather expensive so it makes sense to protect them. A tool bag also allows me to organize my tools. And I can always bring my tools just in case my mother-in-law calls up to ask for my help in repairing something in her home.
Tool bags are important for DIYers. Here’s a list of some of the best tool bags today:
CROP IN STYLE ROLLING TOTE
For around $100, you can get your hands on this sturdy tote. It is made from Cordura nylon which is known for its durability. It measures 20 inches wide, 20 inches long and 16 inches deep. There are adjustable and removable dividers inside so you can stash your tools easily. And there are inline skates with ball bearings that make transport of this tote a breeze.
BUCKET BOSS SOFT TOTE
This is actually a multi-purpose bag which you can use as a tool bag. An open top-type bag, it is made from tough 600 D poly fabric. There are 23 pockets for storing your tools here.
CLC CUSTOM LEATHERCRAFT 1539 TOOL BAG
The main selling proposition of this tool bag is the number of pockets–50. Yes, this is more of a tool bag for professionals given the number of pockets for storage. It is also quite big at 18 inches (length), 7 inches (width), and 14 inches (height). It is spill-proof and made from heavy-duty poly fabric.
DEWALT DD597 OPEN TOP
Dewalt is a known brand so expect it to come up with high quality products like this 18-inch tool bag. It has plenty of space inside with 16 exterior pockets and six pockets inside. The shoulder strap is also fully padded so you should be comfy when carrying this bag.
DEWALT DGL523 LIGHTED TOOL BAG
This is what I am using right now. It is a lighted tool bag that looks like an ordinary backpack on the outside. But it has plenty of room for my tools with 57 pockets, 48 of which are inside the bag. I also love the LED light inside that makes it easier for me to see where my tools are.
