As I was testing I came up with what I'm calling the "Stock Roll" for the Tool Roll and that's just how it arrives rolled 3 times and buckled. So I just wondered what this rolls capabilities were. Mainly I wanted to see how small I could roll it. I was thinking what if I wanted to use it without the zippered pockets and only had small thin tools to carry. What I found was really cool!!! The Tool Roll rolled smaller than most newspapers. This was more of I was inquisitive and inquiring minds wanted to know.
