Can anyone recommend a good quality toolbag, there is so much choice out there, I really need advice about the ones that are up to the job and are good value for money.
All advice really appriciated, Paul.


large dewalt rigid bag had mine must be nearly 8 years now still in good nick ,just one pocket worn due to keeping my chisels in it!
best bag i ever had plenty of side pockets plenty of space inside good strong shoulder strap! cost about £60

Ditched the dewalt bag about a month ago and went for the ck magma large tote. Should have done it ages ago. Much better quality and suits the job better. Deeper, easier to find tools so far feels more hard wearing. Paid about £46+vat at CEF which was cheap but they are chasing me for my business.

The handle is breaking on my second Dewalt open tote tool bag, first one lasted just over a year. Total [email protected]

Yeah agree with handle, I just took it off leaving strap, still works good.

Always wanted one of them open tote bags, everything visable and close to hand. When I got one I realised everything was visable and easy to hand when left unattended.

Use technicians case CK as well....zips have lasted ok, mainly I suspect because I open it properly.

Quite envious of CK tote bag, flaps concealment and space for a battery drill

my boss has got himself a CK magma bag with the hard base....great bag and mines one of the older CK blue ones...same again great bag......

the straps broken on my bag....now its got a length of rope with a load of ducting tape wrapped around for a shoulder strap..lol......works ok though....


Another vote for the CK Magma Large Tote, 30 years of experimenting with various boxes and bags, before happily settling on the CK large tote.


A basic plumbers bass. You look like a real tradesman not a pox doctors clerk. Totally indestructible (until I set fire to it), will hold everything you’ll ever need.

OK I’m an animal!
