Forge Steel Zip Bags Pack of 3
Good range of storage options.
Needed something to organise and store my growing collection of woodworking bits for easy access. Would have preferred to have purchased a number of the smaller cases which would have suited my needs better but I am happy with the 3 sizes and storage formats supplied. Good quality and value for money and have been fully utilized by a variety of carpentry tools. Elastic straps hold each tool securely. Functionality might be improved by use of hook and loop fasteners, rather than elastic, which would enable some degree of customization.

forge steel zip bags x3
Excellent product, exceeded my expectations.No more digging about in toolbag searching for tools, jjust take out zip pouch, open, there it is! All 3 fit in standard rucksack so if i don't need full tool kit just pack these. Only small gripe is bigger 2 could maybe have more varied sizes of retaining straps.

zip bag 4 pliers set & driver
Sizes and recommendations are not given prior to sale. I had to buy all three Forge Steel bags to attempt a suitable zip bag for the Forge Steel long nose pliers, the side-cut pliers and the adjustable wire stripper, together with an small tester screw driver.
It would be much better if these products were sold in a suitable fitted bag.
I am worried that the elastic retainer straps are not the correct size, shape & strength to last.
After a test period I will probably throw away two of the bags because they are either too big or too small.

not bad at the price
I purchased these because I needed a small tool wallet to keep precision screwdrivers, tweezers etc all together and a larger one to keep basic basic screwdrivers, pliers, cutters etc.
The overall design is similar in all 3 bags, a rigid spine, with stiffening in both sides and zip fastening.
The small wallet has 12 elastic straps to hold small items , the medium one has 9 different size elastic straps on one side and a net pocket on the other for loose items or documents.
The large bag is similar in size and shape to an A4 document folio, it has 8 elastic straps on each side.
As regards durability, the bags are fabric covered with stitched edging which looks quite durable, I suspect that the weak point may be the zips, particularly if you tend to just cram in as much in as you can as they are not rugged.
For the price these seem a good buy and hopefully will last well.
