I stumbled upon this interesting utility tote on Irwin’s website while I was looking for utility knives.  I like the unusual combination of bag and fixed handle; it looks very sturdy, and I imagine that the solid handle wouldn’t bunch up around your hand when you load the bag heavily like a standard soft handle would.

It’s 18″ long, and apparently the handle rotates from side to side to provide full access to the bag.  Like any good bag, it has lots of pockets as well.

Anyway, I thought I’d share.  I really hate the way a most tool bags cut off circulation in my hand when they’re full.  This might be a viable alternative.  Street pricing starts around $50.

    Can’t remember the brand, probably Husky, but Home Depot had a similar bag (I too admired the handle) on sale for about half that price when I was there last weekend. Almost bought one, but I’m a bit of a tool bag whore and didn’t really need it (but I wanted it oh so bad…).

    Yeah, I have the Husky bag and use it all the time, and it’s 15 bucks cheaper than this one.

    FYI: Home depot had a very similar bag for $10 during Black Friday 2006. It wasn’t the Husky version.

    Hi Fellas
    Greetings from Down Under! We finally made it and I’m all hooked up again on the intertubes. Had to chime in when I saw this bag. I’ve been spending a lot of my first week here at Bunnings, the local version of big orange, and they have this bag. The difference is the handle has a clip on each end, so it swivels down into the bag when set down. Same except for that… I’ll send you some of the wondrous tool finds from here when they happen. My first big purchase was a 240 volt garden compost shredder. Man, that thing cooks!

  5. As far as portable tool bags go, nothing, beats Country Comm’s Bail Out Bag. I take this thing everywhere with me, and it fits pretty much all the tools that I need. (Multimeter, wire, screwdrivers, knives, random parts, Icom radio)
