Tool Roll Reviews

by Tested_to_Destruction

A tool roll is a handy, versatile hand tool accessory for both home and pro users. The five best tool rolls, reviewed and compared.

A tool roll is a popular form of tool organization, favoured by those that don't need to carry a large amount of tools around or as a means of keeping a select group of tools together in a larger tool bag or chest.

They're great for sets of hand tools, such as screwdrivers and socket wrench sets, as well as useful for containing a set of tools you're most likely to use in a given day. Rugged and hardwearing, they're generally manufactured out of nylon or leather and are available in a range of different sizes.

The five best tool rolls are featured below - each one is a current best selling product, highly rated, user friendly and made to a standard you'd expect from a hard-working tools accessory.

Arsenal 5870 Tool Roll-Up

This is the best selling tool roll and will serve as an organizational solution for a variety of hand tools. Like tool rolls in general, pretty versatile - you can use it to gather up favourite tools before dropping it into a larger tool bag or use it to store a collection of tools for the home, car or RV.

It's manufactured out of 6 ply heavy gauge nylon and the construction is ballistic poly - so it's built to withstand a lot of use and abuse. There's a variety of 25 pockets in all, plenty of room for storing screwdrivers, wrenches and so on. None of them struggled to contain the tools placed inside - but that's providing you don't over stuff the pockets. There are plenty to choose from so don't try fitting utility knife into a pocket that's best suited to a couple of hex keys. Good quality, under 15 bucks, one to buy.

Custom LeatherCraft 1173 32-Pocket Socket Tool Roll Pouch

Another cheap tool roll, this time from LeatherCraft. It's designed to hold socket sets but on testing it worked better with small hand tools - screwdrivers and similar. It's pretty rugged - the hook and loop closures do their job and the elastic strap is as heavy duty as the product info says it is, plus the quick release buckle unfastens in a hot second.

The pockets are plenty, spacious and the stitching between each one is strong enough to securely hold tools without loosening off. When it's fully loaded it rolls up neat enough and does do a great job of housing tools and keeping them right where you put them. Nice finishing touches, good solid construction, a decent all rounder  - don't buy it just for socket sets.

Arsenal 5782 Canvas Wrench Roll-Up

This one's the best canvas tool roll and it's made from the kind of canvas that feels as though it could sail a boat across an ocean - so saying it's manufactured from extremely tough stuff. The stitching detail is sturdy and the hard-wear and fastenings are a combination of nickel and leather.

Once you've filled the pockets with small hand tools - it's designed for wrenches but I filled it with a combination of wrenches and screwdrivers - it rolls up nice and tight, closes easily - and stays closed. It's well made and rugged enough to take from place to place, store in the RV or trunk. A nice quality small tool roll.

Bucket Boss 07004 CS06 25 Pocket Tool Roll Bucket Boss Tool Organizer

This is the best selling Bucket Boss tool roll and it retails at a price that's low enough to add to it's overall attraction as a good quality tool organizer. It's made from denier polyester, possesses a total of 25 different pockets - big enough to contain most small hand tools and rolls up nice and tight once filled.

The fastenings and straps are secure once in place and the nylon grab handle is a helpful aid when you're toting your tools around. It serves its purpose well enough, there's nothing lightweight about it and it keeps all the tools in place no matter how many times you open and close it. Cheap price tag, plenty of space - great for crafters, home use or for someone that wants some extra organization in their tool chest.

McGuire-Nicholas 22007 Canvas Tool Roll

This is a black canvas cheap tool roll - the cheapest around for its size and type. There's a total of 18 pockets, which are good for wrenches, sockets, screwdrivers etc. The canvas construction is heavy duty, strong stitching, secure straps and it rolls neatly up once you've got everything stored within its confines.

There's a couple of holes that you can use for hanging it up if you're wanting to place it in an accessible spot and the basic yet effective design does the job it was intended to do. Good quality manufacture, nice and rugged, big enough to store a variety of tools and way under 10 bucks.
