    What type finders bag/gear belt/gear rig do you guys use? Post some pictures!

    I've been curious how everybody else carries their pinpointers/shovels/finds/etc around while they are out detectecting. I always see guys carrying round shovels and stuffing stuff in their pockets but I couldn't imagine being that unsecured.

    I used to use waterproof canvas bags that attached to my belt loops using carabeaner clips.

    Now I have rigged up a "tactical" fanny pack. It works so much better and even carries my 22" handle wilcox trowel better than I carry my PR-24 baton on duty lol. It has molle straps so I was even able to attach my gp pointer (garrett carrot knockoff) and edge digger along with having enough pouches that I can separate the iron, clad, valuables, and be able to attach a separate canvas bag for trash so I don't get my New rig dirty.

    Here's mine:

    Very cool setup. I'm a beach hunter so any finds I put in my cargo shorts pocket.

    I have the Park Ranger custom made pouch from a fellow TNet member, Freeloader and it's fantastic. Check out the thread titled, "Custom Pouches for Sale" in the "Treasure Related Stuff for Sale Forum.

    When I took up the hobby, I already had a couple of leather carpenter nail bags. With a belt, they ride on your hips, so they don't dump out every time you bend over. But I found the weight kept pulling my pants down. Got a heavy duty set of work suspenders, and what a difference! I would never consider doing without those suspenders now. Takes the weight off of your hips, and the pressure away from your lower belly, if you have a belly. I do.

    I totally agree with SD51 on the Park Ranger finds bag by Freeloader. I love mine. There are several sizes available, and customization to fit your needs is not problem. Check him out!

    I'm also a beach hunter. But I dabble in dirt so I decided I needed to formalize a rig that would work for both sand and soil.

    Just bought two of "freeloader's" bags, Park Ranger and Pack Mule. Hope to have 'em soon. The bags will be nice for hikes into the woods when I want to take the water bottle, small camera, snake bite kit & misc. supplies. I may ask Matt "freeloader" to do a matching sheath for my Lesche Sampson shovel next.

    Presently using a Lowe's cloth nail apron, along with a Buzz Wilson "Bomb #2" sheath for my Lesche hand digger & pinpointer. It's a lightweight setup, but I can't take everything..

    My wife was so ticked. I just bought a minelab go find 60 and she thought that all I needed was a new detector... I needed to finally get a pinpointer, a long handled wilcox trowel, and a new rig for everything.

    She wasn't happy at all lol.

    But this bag really is worth every bit of 20 bucks. It extends to a 42" waistline, has like 5 pockets, molle straps (if I ever go detecting in a free state I am going to use this for open carry lol), 2 large pockets and 3 smaller ones all with zippers and the center one with a strap.

    It even has a Velcro spot for me to put my American flag, and either my Gadston flag or my III% logo.

    Love my new rig. I used it for an impromptu hunt today and it was perfect. Holds all of my tools and even has space for a water bottle and snacks LOL!

    I bought a Park Ranger, then I liked it so much I just got a Pack Mule.

    The Mule is big enough to throw in a small towel for dirt when digging plugs, plus I can put a water bottle on the rear pouch.

    Also a place for my keys and phone, Lesche in one pocket, brass coin probe in the other, and the Carrot in the slot up front.

    Park Ranger is perfect for a quick hunt when I am not putting in a big day.

    They look like they were made for metal detectorists, oh wait, they are.

    Heck, I put them on my signature!

    I have one of Freeloader's Park Ranger bags that I had customized a bit and love it! It is worth every penny and plan on adding another and waiting to see if he comes up with a bag for beach/water hunting, I'll get one of those too! Beerguy, good idea about adding to signature! As important as the detector, pinpointer and digger. As for Pinpointer I use a Kellyco Vulcan 360 and a Lesche Digger. I have backups for each.
