Okay Gents you have to give me a pass on this one. Not my best work here all the way around. Been a long day and this was basically just a pure and simple test. These tools are not placed how I or any person would most likely lay them out. I got home and grabbed my Metric and SAE Wrench Sets from my toolbox. I have a handful of large wrenches that I made sure to throw in just to see if they'd work. I loaded wrenches into the Tool Roll and took some pics. I was pleasantly surprised how much room was still available. Like I said I basically threw them in. With some organization I could have fit more than double in and that does not include the zipper sections. I then rolled up to see if there would be any issues. None. I took some pics rolled. I could not really tell any measurement difference from unloaded to loaded, which was another pleasant surprise. My initial comment still holds true. Having two sets of wrenches in the roll and a whole lot of room left does not bode well for poor Mr. Handle. The handle does not feel like it will make it under full load. Granted the majority of users will never load it down to full capacity with max weight items, but since it is 1TG I'd rather see a bulkier more reliable, durable Handle put on. Other than that my OCD could have a field day playing with all of the little spaces and tool holders organizing things different ways to maximize both space and load. On another note. I seem to remember there being a question about balancing the roll. I think the way the roll gets packed would go a long way towards the end balance. Meaning the section directly behind the tie or pack connector should have the heaviest items as evenly dispersed length wise as possible. Keeping the majority of the heaviest items closest to the connection point with your pack/body should help the balance issue as well as make it more comfortable. At least those are my thoughts. I was even thinking you could identify the area directly behind the connection point on the interior of the roll and possibly even make it a different color to identify heavier load bearing area. I don't know, like I said long day and just a thought which could be complete garbage. If all else fails you always have my alternative of the counterweights that would attach to roll. Anyway hope these hope even just a little to show size and somewhat capabilities. I'm still intending full on testing. Just got screwed with the weather and now week of Dr appts. So testing is ongoing and expect better things to come.

Sorry man you did such a great job making & I made it look like a bomb went off. I'm going to spend some more quality time this week & weekend. I really likes the smaller nylon sleeves at the one end. Man my tiny like RC wrenches fit in there like a glove. Crazy. Can't wait to see what else I discover with some quality time. I really like, very versatile. I would have bet anything that sucker was not going to roll up once I got all those wrenches in there. Not only did I not have an issue rolling. I rolled it up with one hand. So easy to clean, just wipes right out. Most difficult part is deciding the optimum space to put each tool, which I didn't do. It was a tired thing, Dr's do that to me after playing hurry up & wait all day.

where is this heavy load area? Could you circle it out?

So a lot has been covered so far about this tool roll, so I'm going to do my best to not repeat anything already covered. Since Dean was looking into using this as a camp bag accessory I focused my attention on the tool side of things.
First off.... you guys knocked this out of the park! The changes you decided to make with the how things are secured and organized opened this thing up to amazing capacity!

I played around with various tools and load set ups and not once did I find a issue with not enough room. I decided to set up an emergency vehicle kit with the basic tools you may need on the go on or off road.

This is what I ended up having in this current configuration and I had plenty of room for more,screw drivers, wrenches, pliers, tire plug kit. I was absolutely amazed on how well I could get everything to fit. I know there was a comment on large tools not fitting, but my largest standard wrench fit fine, even a hammer fit well,

My next test was put it on a car seat organizer and and see how well it did. The weight I had in this had no issue's on my terrible back roads not once did the snaps come loose or did have any issue's.

I also found by having this mounted to the back seat of my truck, there was no need to undo the molle, I could lay the seat down unbuckle and unroll, and when done roll back up and re buckle worked out perfectly!​
So in the end the applications I used it for worked perfectly and was beyond what I expected, there was no balancing issue's I found or size issue's.
  • I do agree with @BigT handle probably could be beefed up a little just to insure longevity with max loads, If loaded with nothing but wrenches and or ratchet's and sockets it could get very heavy.
  • The only other improvement that could be made maybe add a line of velcro down the middle pf the pockets and extend the outer flaps in more toward the middle more and have velcro on them also, this may help with rolling it up and even help secure smaller items from sliding around to much. It does fine with out but could be something that could improve it.
  • And @Dean Cattell point of it being possibly too big for camp and pack applications I do see. There may be a market of two versions of this. This version being a tool roll (perfect for it) and another smaller compact version for hiking,camping and backpacking applications.
Other uses I do think this would work very well for would be a field gun cleaning kit or armor's kit, hobbyist tool kit for RC and remote aviators or drone pilots, atv/utv offroad tool kit....etc.
In the end everyone at Onetigris and to everyone that helped contribute to this GREAT JOB!! (y)

CommonFamilySurvival Great job man and nicely done pointing out the car molle application to not remove but lay seat down. Well thought out!

The way I see it, there is only ONE way to improve this bag and make it more multipurpose:
Make the inside into black and white squares so you can use it as a chess-board while waiting for thise spare-parts to arrive 😜
(Original idea stolen from a suggestion by Sergeant BigT.)
Haha! I thought what was said PM stayed in PM kind of like Vegas or Amsterdam! Haha!!! You forgot checkers too!

OK

where is this heavy load area? Could you circle it out?
This whole idea came about as I was thinking about the balancing and counter-weight solution. Basically why was the roll so unbalanced weight wise to be noticeable when attached to a pack. Anyway that led me to this line of thought. Feel free to light me up as this was just a thought that came to me & given my meds it's difficult for me to discern between a good and bad thought these days, which can be a good &/or bad thing depending upon what I'm doing. Haha!!!

So I focused on the Tool Roll Molle attachment point and what I'm calling the "Stock Roll". To me the stock roll is taking into account the use of the 2 zippered pockets at both ends. So wings in, pockets in, roll 1, roll 2, roll 3, buckle & that equals my stock roll.

Heavier the weight the further away from the attachment point acts as drag and we can feel it even as we just put a pack on. Moving that weight as close to the attachment point as we can provides a much more comfortable carrying experience. My suggestion was to add a colored section or two stripes, whatever to denote the load bearing area to remind the user when they go to load their tool roll.

The load bearing area is between the 2 pieces of tape. Heavy tools should be loaded in the area where the yellow level is. This area cannot expand higher to the left because we are taking into account the use of the zippered pocket. If pockets are not to be used some adjustments can be made.

I turned the roll over and taped off the same area just so you could see the attachment point within the load bearing area.

Like I said I could be completely wrong here. It was something that sounded good to me at the time. Please let me know what you think, especially if I'm dead wrong, &/or if you have any questions.
