The best tool bags are as essential as any tool in your shelf or drawer. These bags ensure everything is always in one place and on hand during your project, and that you don’t need to go back and forth your tool storage area and the jobsite just to retrieve something you forgot. They’re lightweight and compact, while some have plenty of compartments and pockets.

They are also versatile. Some have open tops and have handles that you can carry around like a caddy while you are doing some projects, such as basement remodeling or home addition. Some look like (and can double as) duffel bags, while others are designed to double as daypacks. But if you want something more minimalistic, then you can get one of those roll-up tool bags that can accommodate fewer tools but can save space.

Your old toolbox has been your constant companion over the years, but it has become so hopelessly disorganized that you’re planning on giving it up for good. You also have some tools that would not fit inside your good old toolbox. Maybe it’s high time to switch to a larger tool bag.

Before you say ‘sayonara’ to your old toolbox, let’s check out some of the things you need to consider before you buy a tool bag online.
