Reviews & Rankings – Best Soft Tool Bags – 2018
Though several other soft-sided tool bags are also great buys, we chose the DEWALT Tradesman’s Tool Bag for several reasons. The bag has 14 interior pockets, which also includes a zippered pocket. The bag is also highly durable and strong as it is made from heavy duty poly and ballistic poly fabric. One of the best tool bags to be found on the market! PROS of the Dewalt DG5543 Tradesman Tool Bag are that its made with heavy duty construction material, it has 14 interior pockets + zippered pocket, 4 base pads (footers) and a non-slip adjustable padded shoulder strap. The CONS of the Dewalt DG5543 Tradesman Tool Bag are that moderately expensive compared to other brands (though it contains tools already!) and there are a few reports of stitching issues. We give the Dewalt DG5543 Tradesman Tool Bag our highest rating at FIVE STARS!
Though several other soft-sided tool bags are also great buys, we chose the FASTPRO F00651 36-Piece Basic Home Tool Set with 12-inch Tool Bag for several reasons. First, and most important, is that this soft bag already come loaded with tools! It includes slip joint pliers, groove joint pliers, adjustable wrench, long nose pliers, 7-in-1 magnetic screwdriver holder, screwdriver bits, utility knife and a tape measure. It is made from polyester fabric and has a wide opening. We give the FASTPRO F00651 36-Piece Basic Home Tool Set with 12-inch Tool Bag a good rating of THREE STARS!
The WORKPRO 16-inch Top Wide Mouth Tool Bag has 13 outside pockets and 8 belts. This is a bit more than most soft tool bags of comparable size and price. The pockets on the inside and outside of the polyester bag consist of 8 pockets inside with 3 on each side and two pockets on the two ends. In other words, plenty of pockets! And a large inside area as well measuring 16-inch lengthwise by 9-inch wide and 9.5-inch tall. We give the WORKPRO 16-inch Wide Mouth Tool Bag an excellent rating of FOUR STARS!
The Stanley STST70574 12-Inch Soft Sided Tool Bag is a basic but very good soft tool bag. What makes us give it our highest ranking of FIVE STARS? Well, out of all we reviewed, its adjustable strap and very comfortable cotton padded handle was by far the best. It also has something most do not, a rubber foam bottom that helps keep the soft tool bag sturdy and protects the contents from falls. We give the Stanley STST70574 12-Inch Soft Sided Tool Bag our highest ranking of FIVE STARS!
The Custom Leathercraft 15 Pocket 16 in. Center Tray Tool Bag is a different sort of soft tool bag. Its different in that it is open on the top. The soft tool box includes a 13-1/2 inch by 9 inch compartment plastic tray that fits within the bag. On the outside of the bag are 8 pockets with another 8 on the inside. We give the Custom Leathercraft 15 Pocket 16 in. Center Tray Tool Bag a good rating of THREE STARS.
Remember when reviewing soft tool bags, the most important things are not the price, but the quality of the bag. Review and compare the construction of the material, the compartments and the handles and straps. All can vary from bag to bag.
