    You could buy the bag local at an electrical supply shop that is a Ideal dealer. They run about $210 to $220 for the premium life time warrenty. Or check out online and search Ideal tool tote and they will be priced from $185 and up. Grainger sells one like it for $100.(NOT IDEAL)
    My first bag lasted over five years and they replaced it no questions asked. I will never have to buy another tool bag again.

    Looks like it needs to be dragged through a few crawl spaces.

    $220 for a tool bag. No wonder they offer a lifetime warranty. Thats enough to pay for 6 of them. I have a CLC tote very similar to that one and it even has the tray for electrical connectors. Only payed $35 dollars for it and I have had it for 2 years now and its been through hell and is holding up very well.

    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    I ordered one of these after seeing this post a while back and it is great. was bigger then I thought it would be ,but, I like them being covered also. plenty of room to stuff stuff like drill or other extras I need when hauling it up on a roof.

    I got myself one of them (the middle sized version), Kinda wish I woulda got the biggest one... but no matter what it never seems like the tool bag is big enough.... but it's always heavy enough.

    I don't have a huge preferance towards covered vs not, but those flaps aren't near as much of a pain as I though they'd be.

    Been looking for one of those. Is the Ideal one US made?
    Proper Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance

    "There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only are this man's lawful prey. It's unwise to pay too little.
    When you pay too much, you lose a little money -- that is all. When you pay too little, you may lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do.

    The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot -- it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better."

    John, I think the tote was made in Canada or America. It is very well made with high quality cow. (leather) I just ordered the Ideal black leather shoulder bag to carry meters. I will look to cool with a leather jacket on walking in with my tool bags.LOL
