I like both the large and small one like these.
AWP 18" Pro Tool Tote | Water Resistant Tool Bag with Rotating Handle, Removable Shoulder Strap and 15 Tool Storage Pockets

or I should say I like the looks and the price. I have the small one already but it鈥檚 old and the inside isn鈥檛 green, it鈥檚 black and it鈥檚 hard to see stuff in the bottom without a light.

I use one bag mainly for most service and construction needs.

I also have the 18鈥 awp. It鈥檚 pretty good but it should be more like the husky and have pockets on both sides. The straps break on the awps I learned from the smaller bag, so ive supplement the swivel with a caribiner so it doesn鈥檛 let loose going down stairs. The smaller tote lasted about a year and a half.

Husky鈥檚 18鈥 tote is sturdier but twice the price.
I find that the main reason I get new bags is that they start to look like crap.

I like to present a clean overall appearance and that includes the tools and bags I take into some but not all homes. Some jobs it doesn鈥檛 matter.

Im considering have two complete tool bags.

Terry kicked this guys ass because he stole plumbing valor, claimed he was a licensed plumber and Terry鈥檚 second cousin/ex-girlfriend works as a waitress at the Chuckie cheese this clown is the maintenance 鈥 tech 鈥 for so Terry knew he was lying.

Now, watch the video.

Empty weight is a concern for me. I want a lightweight bag that y stuff gooder鈥︹.馃槵

Craftsmsn use to be my go to brand but they closed sears and I don鈥檛 even know if they trade the tools in at the stores that do sell craftsman now. I believe that Ace Hardware and Lowes. There鈥檚 no shame in using craftsmsn to Terry. @jakewilcox

I said this is a no Veto thread but honestly I watched a few videos and the Veto bags are nice鈥︹.real nice. @Pipe Rat.

I might end up with one.

I like that I can clip the smaller pack out part organizers to the bottom of it when I carry it in
That seems like it would be real handy as long as it all didn鈥檛 get too heavy. I like the concept. I like the Milwaukee storage boxes. I hate they stopped making the $25 regular organizers, the non packout organizers.

I agree that the center divider in bags suck. I have the Husky 16鈥 bag. It鈥檚 held up solid for at least 3 years maybe more. I鈥檒l probably go Husky again when it looks too rough. They last a long time. View attachment 136334 View attachment 136335
I need you to clean that bag out and quit taking company parts home. In fact bring all the company parts on your dresser back. Take those roach clips out you bag gangster鈥︹erry be looking.

I just bought the Milwaukee pack out bag. I have tried a lot of bags. I prefer having a smaller bag to take into the home and a larger bag in the van that I can swap tools for the job I am doing. Some of my smaller bags seem to tip over when I am driving. I like the electricians style of husky or even Lowe's. https://a.co/d/6Y5X449
I like how those screwdrivers line up like that on the side. The spots are deep enough that they won鈥檛 fall out.

I can鈥檛 have stuff falling out on peoples floors.

I probably should only use closed top bags because things sticking out could potentially rip a couch or gouge a wall. You know how people like to make little trails in their house to walk through.

My wife鈥檚 like that. We could have a 20,000 sq ft house and eventually she鈥檇 put enough furniture in it that you couldn鈥檛 walk.

Im constantly taking stuff and throwing it out or to goodwill and she鈥檚 steady bringing in new stuff.

Terry don鈥檛 have it so bad though. My friends wife is addicted to remodeling. By the time she鈥檚 done with the whole house it鈥檚 time to start again. They constantly are remodeling.
