Hi all

A while ago when I was on the tools, we used to use Flight hard shell cases for the team.  These were pretty robust and I remember they did cost a fortune (circa 300ish), what are people using now days for lugging tools?
I have been searching around for something NZ based and am not having a lot of luck with finding something similar, closest is
http://www.calvert-plastics.com/wp-content/uploads/Flight-Cases.pdf (The LM1 model)

Interested to see what others are using.

I love my Veto Propack. I believe I have the Contractor XL and it suits my electricianing needs amazingly well.

I did have to import it, which cost as much as the bag, so @ $300 total (6 years ago). Totally worth every cent IMO

They're built and laid out really well. An old workmate got one before me, He was carrying more than 30kg of tools in it for a while. The bag handled it perfectly, he didn't.

Have a talk with Ron Enright in Auckland. Thier facebook page shows some Platt toolcases from the USA. RS compeonets should have suitable tool cases too for haul around your gear. Remember always go for the gas struts in the case.
