There are several reasons that I wish I’d had something like this recently while working on a “little” project, including the convenience of having all the things I need in one place rather than scattered throughout my pants pockets, and the potential prevention of “jean sag” because of all the stuff in those pockets. The 9-¾” × 5-¾” Bucket Boss 54045 Rear Guard tool pouch has four front pockets for tools, pencils, wallets, penlights, and so on, plus a rear padded and reinforced pouch and a clip loop for tape or keys. A snap loop secures it to your belt or tool bag.
Most of reviews for the 54045 on Amazons are positive. Online prices for this pouch are in the $8 to $9 range.
What do you Toolmongers think? Are tool pouches such as this worthwhile, or are there better alternatives when you need to carry just a few tools?
