Very Compact, Light, Robust Tool Bag
on July 22, 2012
I see that some reviews are being shared inappropriately among different products. This is for the "Rothco G.I. Brass Zipper Mechanics Tool Bag" (in black in particular).
I bought this bag to replace the ad hoc collection of bags, tool boxes, and bins I used for working on computers. I am often going out to work on computers and always need a different set of items, including computer parts (drives, cables, etc), screw driver, software tool CD collection, flashlight, etc. All this stuff is often of a size which makes it too big to fit in a rigid tool box which would be the appropriate volume, or it would require bringing a tool box which is too big.
This tool bag seems to be the solution. It is small, light, and has this odd characteristic of having more room in it than one would think. It is thick and robust, but it is also light and one can collapse it. I think I should be able to put most stuff in this bag that I would want (all except a full sized keyboard) to bring. I put the things in it which I always bring and there is plenty room for whatever addition items I would want to bring to most places.
For the price and quality of this bag, I think it is worth getting at the price given here even if it turns out to be too small for most uses. It seems to be a very good thing to have if one has any use for something like this. I highly recommend it.
