    Where to find a "finds" bag?

    Need something to hang from my belt. What section of stores would I find something suitable. Not hip on ordering on the web. Would like to find something common/suitable I can use and buy local.

    Try Lowes or Home depot for a carpenters tool belt. That should work pretty good.

    The Lowes and Depot ideas are good. They are also VERY simple to make using discarded clothing. TTC

    see my post a few down , Great Propointer holster. Best finds bag I've found because its light, small and deep with plenty of pockets. And it can also hold a pinpointer. And it was cheap

    don't neglect good "dollar" stores. i found one selling minolta fanny packs & bought 6 of them. i cut off 2 of the fanny packs & attached them to my weight belt with cable ties (i used a hole punch to make the holes) i've used this in the water for 2 years already & it is still going strong.

    I use an old gas mask bag from a surplus store. I redid the strap so it hangs up and down,not sideways and its last for years, Been using it since early 80's. It's heavy canvas and I don't think I will ever wear it out.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Been using the same old cloth nail pouch since I started back in the early 80's. Trash on one side, treasure in the other. Pockets wide enough to put glasses in and other small accessories. Pinpointer fits in it now too although it does stick out a tad. Don't even feel it's weight.

    I think...therefore I am.
