My hand tool tote is a basic McGuire Nichols without a bunch of pockets. I use a block of foam board in the bottom and basically stab in the tools. This allows more flexibility than a series of pouches, I think, and makes it easier to see the tools.

I have one of those 5 gallon bucket organizers. I've been using it a few years now and I really like it. I can just toss garbage and stuff into it while I'm in the customers home (small stuff of course).

I have a 18" tool tote from Husky that I bought on sale this past black Friday. Looking at it I just can't see it being better than my bucket....

I used to use a bucket, and loved it for awhile. Akward to carry and then it was a pain to dig stuff out of the bottom, especially when the inside pockets were full.

I then went to the Stanely workstation on wheels. Really loved that thing. The draw back was that it fit too much stuff in it and became way too heavy to lug around up and down stairs. I loved the setup and access it afforded.

So I had to return to a good old tool bag. So I have this one for a year or so now.

I'm happy with my Veto LC. It's not too heavy when loaded which is a common complaint with the bigger versions. If you put some thought into reducing the weight of the tools that you put in your bag, that helps too.

Nice set up,I would rather a bunch of small totes set up like than one huge one.

I use the Veto Pro XXL-OT big and heavy, but fits my drill, driver, light, PPE and a good assortment of hand tools. I can go in with one trip to most places and have all that and a two stack of sortainers on wheels under it. With that I have all those tools plus screws and bits for most occasions. Works for me.

I use the same one. Heavy as hell but keeps me from going to the van constantly. I usually just put on my small Rubbermaid flat cart . I'm gonna set it on a scale one of these days.
