Im an Industrial Design student and I’m working on a project designing bags/backpack/carrying equipment. Im messing around with the idea of designing a bag that would be used to carry a simple mechanics tool set, torque wrench, pliers, and compartments for hardware and fittings and all sorts of things you would need at an event to work on your track vehicle. The goal of it would be to increase the convenience and comfort of carrying your stuff with you on site without having to lug around the tool boxes if there is no need. Im looking for some insight and experience with you and your tools on the track. This would be geared more towards the enthusiast rather than professional, because I feel that the pros have the means to carry their snazzy snap-on box with them and their set ups are higher complexity.
The concept would be a spin off of the conventional tool roll :
and a mechanics bag:
The concept would be worn like a backpack but open up like the tool roll. It would also contain space for various other items.
1. What are the most common tools used when not at home.
2. What other large items do they carry
3. if it is a backpack, what types of material have you had trouble with in the past as a backpack at the track?
