Best on-the-go tool tote bags

Carhartt bag

Sometimes, you just have to pack up tools and work in a location other than your shop. That’s when a generously sized tool bag comes in handy. Lots of pockets keep your tools organized and protected, and a large center compartment holds bigger tools. Most have shoulder straps to help you carry the load. Cushioned or rubber bottoms allow you to set the bags anywhere without scratching surfaces. We love these four bags.
