I was showing off the assembly shop at ComTime today to a friend when I noticed that one of the engineers had left his toolkit on the workbench. He had a Chicago Case Co unit, well-filled and well-abused. It looked like a sturdy construction and a clever deign; plenty of pockets for those pesky pencils, markers, screw and bolt drivers, maintenance tools and flashlights, but also room for a slate, camera reports, follow focus, and eyebrows or filters not being used. Quite a handy deal for a 1st, perhaps.

Has anyone ever used one of these? Any anecdotes or reccommendations? They're not cheap.

Which one of those did he have? I looked through a few but saw nothing that sounds like what you're talking about and I'm too sleepy to keep looking. ;)

I think it was the Magnum, with the add-on Wing Pallet.
