    I have been using my dewalt tote bag for the last few years. I liked it but I did find it a nuisance having to take everything out to get something at the bottom. I'm looking at the following 3 hard cases but the jet and jumbo are pretty steep in price, but they look great!

    1. JUMBO 6700 – B&W International - http://www.b-w-international.com/product/jumbo-6700/

    2. JET 6000 – B&W International - http://www.b-w-international.com/product/jet-6000/

    3. DeWalt TSTAK Combination Tools & Fixings Storage Set - https://www.screwfix.com/p/dewalt-tstak-combination-tools-fixings-storage-set/4744f#product_additional_details_container

    Anyone used any of those 3 or any other cases you'd recommend?

    Cheers.

    Why do you want a solid case? Wouldn't a soft case be a better bet with places to put hand tools neatly?

    I've had lots of different cases and bags over the years including hard cases. Problem is hard cases are quite heavy to start with. Ok if your in one place but a real bind climbing stairs etc.
    Ive used a Stanley fat max bag for a couple of years now. Almost perfect and still good. Not too heavy even full of stuff.
    You have to be disciplined to put tools back in the right place but that's no bad thing...

    You need a grab bag as well with the essentials in it and that it doesn't feel like you are carrying an Elephant up Mount Kilimanjaro.

    The larger the bag/box you just fill it with more shite, my chore today is to empty the tool bag out and sort the carp out, I bet you any money I will ditch 3 screws and an old stanley knife I have just found that hasn't been used in 5 years...... and god only knows why I have a tap wrench still in the bag.
