that looks:

1) expensive
2) too small to carry many tools...

A while back our main supply house had one come in, Even at our company discount it was still $175.

I like it, It looks like it would last forever and be a great bag, But its just too damn expensive.

For that price Id buy a veto.

I have one (in black). I should have got the regular leather one (hard to see into a black pocket).

I like it. No, it was not cheap. I bought it when the second latch on my metal toolbox looked like it was going to give way soon (the first one had broken almost a year earlier) I kinda figured I had earned it. This was also shortly after I started working the service division of my company and was taking my tools home every day or three.

It is definitely well made. I don't baby it and except for a little bit of fuzziness on the carrying strap, there is no real wear-and-tear to speak of after two years (I just took a good look at it and I am actually quite amazed at how good it looks - even the bottom).

You can't put every tool imaginable in it, but that's one of the things I like about it. Also, I know at the end of the day if something is missing since everything has a place and every place is full; with a toolbox I wouldn't notice I was missing a tool until I next needed to use it. The flipside of that is the issue of theft/borrowing. Last month I switched back to a toolbox for the job I am on now (new construction) so I can lock it at break/lunch but I will hopefully be switching back for the next job.

They are a very handy little bag for service type stuff but little and expensive are the two biggest problems. For less money you can get a Veto that will hold more in a better organizational style.
