Well-established or perfectionist Toolmongers may not find satisfactory tool kits on the shelf at the big box. Or maybe you just want a neat package to wrap up some of your tools for a specific use — motorcycle, bicycle, auto, and boat kits all spring to mind as good examples, and an office kit could come in handy, too. Cruz Tools sells their tool-kit pouches separately for about $30 each, but if you look around you might find the right kit pouch for your needs at the right price.

Searching through Google Products you’ll come across hits as low as $10 depending on the design and size you’re looking for.  Beware: Although I tried for nice search results, the links I included are cluttered at best.  But the results are interesting…  If you find better search criteria, feel free to add them in comments — otherwise you may have to research these the old-fashioned way.

    I’ve been looking for an inexpensive “Roll Up Pouch” for my most commonly used subset of my Wiha and similar screwdrivers, haven’t found any reasonably priced products that appear to be reasonably well made.

    Anybody tried the Grizzly tool roll, as seen on Amazon.com?

    The best little self-made tool kit bag I’ve found is the Nantucket Diddy Bagg http://www.nantucketbagg.com/ I’m not an advertiser or sales rep, just a VERY satisfied customer. I actually just bought another one to make tool kit for my little brother now that he’s out of college and moving into an apartment in NYC. Easily customizable, easily carried, and easily stored. My girlfriend uses one to carry her knitting/sewing stuff, I’ve got three, one for the emergency kit in the car, one for a homemade first aid kit, and one for hand tools. Very useful little bag.

    Go to the leather shop. Get some off cuts, rems, or blems. Then get a Stitch-Awl and Voila! Custom made tool rolls. Then you can move on to a welding apron, repair the tent trailer, customize or add a carrying strap to just about anything. The list goes on.
