    Tool Kit to fit around waist

    Hello,

    Anybody know of a useful tool kit to fit around the waist - something that we can wear with us all day allowing us to carry bits and pieces - such as cable snips, screwdrivers, cable ties, the odd network lead and possible a mouse or two etc?

    Thanks,

    Rob

    How about Workmans trousers - http://search.stores.ebay.co.uk/Cord...054732QQsofpZ2 They are smart trousers, fine not Suit and Tie type, but out of most of the workwear brands they look the smartest and come in 2 sorts with differing numbers of pockets.

    You could just get a tool belt and put some pouches on it, like a nail pouch for mice etc

    I have an electrician's Leatherman and that normally gets me by. I keep a cache of bits and pieces around the school (mice, cables, keyboards etc)

    I use my handbag! It's big and roomy enough for screwdrivers, discs, etc although may not be the thing you're looking for! :P

    I got a Leatherman that has the interchangable pieces. Is enough for random jobs as I find them. Became so useful the NM bought a departmental one as well for him!

    Buy a Gerber - much better than a LeatherMan. Broke three LM's. Present Gerber 6 years old and still going strong.

    Agree with the Gerber being better.

    Not tried a Gerber but not had any problems with the Leatherman and this is from 5 years use in Scouting, climbing, work use and random tooling around.
    This is the all sing and dancing one though, don't know about the smaller ones though.

    Leatherman is all you need
    I work with stage light and sound on the weekends, and used to be my parttime job before I had to do a placement year so I use my Leatherman from then

    Always worries me using it when kids are about, s'long as the blade doesnt get seen I suppose it's ok though.
