Default Pit hauler bags

I need you opinion on this.......
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Inner-Boxesed
I have been using Home depot Stanley boxes and tackle boxes for a while now, but they are cunbersome and not really fit for the hobby, to the ones that use this haulers are they worth it and if so wich do you recomend? As this are not that popular here where I race.
Thank you

I use racers edge bag. I think is the same price on a main and I know someone that has had one for a couple years now and still together strong just dirty. Trinity looks like might be just a good tho

There not cheap, but once you take in acoumt how much we all spend on this hobby, hust to have some weekend fun...and properly protect your gear. I think they might be a wise investment. Till recently I did not really have much gear, but as you get more in to the hobby and start carring spares with you, running 2 classes the tackle boxes and tool boxes don't cut it anymore. Thats why I am asking the opinion of the ones that used them, do they make your life easier or are they just bling?

I picked up the Ofna bag (the one that comes w/transmitter and tool bag) and am pretty happy with it. The tx bag is too large, I dont care for it much. I really like the tool binder. The hauler bag itself has worked quite well, the only thing I'd want would for it to be a bit wider so it would hold the car with the tires on. I have it loaded down, gotta be around 80+ pounds and is holding up thus far (only a couple months old).

Yes they make it easier specially unloading at a race to the pit tables if u cant pit right beside your truck. Less trips to the trunk plus everything can be placed in a specific place which makes wrenching easier. But depends on you or whoever buys one if they will like it.

Right now I have everything with the exception of fuel in my bag, I'm only piloting one vehicle though (grabbing a truck soon). It is heavy but it's nice to have everything right there.

A friend of mine has the Trinity T-8 and it's a very nice bag. I have the Pro Tech bag on the way, should arrive today. It's the exact same as the Trinity, just a different color. It will be a lot easier than the plastic tote I have been using.
