when my life gets to be too much, I buy a new bag. for some reason putting all my life in order in a new bag gives me comfort. i have run the gamut of every kind of bag, now the only think that works for me is a tool bag from the hardware store. I have a 20" but it’s too much like luggage, it works great for large job sites. i needed this 14" for everyday. most of my other ‘field bags’ and rucksacks are deep rather than wide, and i am just sick of having to root around at the bottom for what i want. When i stick my hand in i want to come out with EXACTLY the item i went in for. BTW these tools bags are usually guaranteed for life and cost about 20 dollars- beat that.
