Atomic Shop Update

ShopRoll Tool Roll

I gotta thing for tool rolls. Most “late model” tool rolls seem to be lacking in both style and substance, but I own a ton of military tool rolls from WWII and Vietnam eras. I use them in my mobile tool boxes that I keep in my old cars and trucks. Today, however, I was racking my brain for a post and stumbled upon the Adventure Tool Company and their canvas offering. I dig it for three reasons:

1. It’s canvas… and has the look of the older rolls that I love so much.

2. It’s got a ton of accessory pockets which most older rolls don’t have. They are great for things like an extra points set, maybe some hardware, etc..

3. It’s made in the USA.

Check it out.

I’m in love…
