I'm a renter and do the walk from my car to my apartment after 'work, never tools in my car overnight. It's really not a big deal because I plan ahead and don't carry all my tools.

Was wondering if folks have used tent pole bags or if there's a company that makes specialty bags for tools over "48 and have girth for shovels, rakes and or a hoe?

As always thank you for replies! smile.gif

Hmm, wonder if you could find replacement "stuff sacks" for those EZ Up shelters?

Also, I've heard that this mom & pop company will do custom work.  They do some good work on their durable mesh bags.   Tuff River Stuff

Sounds like a sea bag might work. Some sea bags have shoulder straps too. You tools will probably still stick out the top...maybe 2 seabags together? I am not sure anything will accomodate a mattock very well unless you can knock the head off each time you move it.

If you are a DIY type,  Seattle Fabrics sells all the materials  needed to fabricate a bag exactly to you needs.  They are open for online ordering.

If you don't have a sewing machine,  their dry bag fabrics can be heat bonded.   Other fabrics can be bonded using barge cement for the long seams.  A sewing awl is useful for attaching carrying straps.

I have a couple “chair” bags.  4+ ft long, 28” in diameter at open end (narrower at bottom).  Have a long shoulder strap.   These were for carrying chairs to games.  A bit scuzzy, free if you want them?  Issaquah area.  Oh, they’re lime green with Seahawks logo.

Thanks for the good ideas everyone!

Maybe it isn't the bag I should be looking at, maybe tools that get smaller? I have an "rv" rake that collapses and fits into my mountain bike pack that's kinda cool. And used canvas shopping bags as buckets....

Instead of a bag, consider carrying straps, something like:

I'm looking for more of a bag to protect both my car and the building where I live. I live on the third floor so I'm carrying tools on the elevator and down carpeted halls....

Maybe when it's safe again I go back to WTA and Evergreen work parties to get my fix. smile.gif

Check out second hand stores for something similar. I picked up one of these with wheels for about $10 at a Goodwill store.
