I'm looking to purchase a new ditty bag for all my tools and stuff I bring for doing G&E work on set. I often find myself traveling or walking with this bag on some shoots so I thought it might be handy (and easier on my arm) to have a backpack tool bag instead, but I've been having a hard time finding an appropriate one. I'd appreciate hearing from anyone that has products to suggest.
Go to Filmtools.com. They have a great selection of belts and pouches for your tools. I also find fabulous supplies at army/navy stores and police supply stores.
You don't want to put too much on your belt either because not only will it weigh you down and cause eventual back and hip pain. It also ups the chance of getting caught on equipment when you're walking by. Everyone has a preference with what they keep on or off them. When I work I always have my C-wrench, speed hex key, leatherman and flashlight. Than I'll add to that if necessary. I keep everything else in my tool bag and the onset crate. Some guys like to have a roll of tape on their belt, some a hammer, some a producer etc. To each his own.
Belt and onset tools also vary when you're gripping, keying, besting, rigging, dollying....
Have a great shoot! =)
