Bear in mind, though, that the online photos of this product are wrong. They did away with the socket rail and put in three small velcro-flapped pouches. Also, instead of elastic bands with plastic clips, there are nylon straps. However, while this means that your bundle of tools will be held very securely, unrolling and rolling up the pouch takes more time than throwing a tool into a bucket, bag, or chest.”
Stuey, you’re in good company. My father was always a big believer in roll bags for car tool kits, and I can’t fault ’em myself. They generally don’t rattle like a box or bag will, and it’s far easier to find a specific tool in a roll than in the bowels of a dark bag at night on the side of the road.
This one looks nice, and at around $15, it’s definitely in the range of most discretionary spending. Froogle turned up a few other variants including a wrench roll from the same manufacturer. It might be time to replace my $5 black-as-in-can’t-be-seen-in-the-dark Harbor Freight tool bag for the car after all.
Has anyone found good brick-and-mortar sources for these?
