Default Recommendation on a good pouch?

What do you all use or recommend for a pouch for storing finds and your tools? Currently I have a small sling bag that works OK, but is not really the best solution for me. It works, but I'd rather have something that gives me quick access to place finds in and to hold tools (Pinpointer, brushes, trowel, etc.)

Check out Omegamill pouches Tony . They only sell on Ebay , they have a facebook page with more info on it . Their pouches are very nice and made extremely well . I have their Relic Elite . Here is a link to their ebay store . I'm not affiliated , just a satisfied customer .

I'm currently use a tool pouch. I removed it from the belt that it came which and hooked it to backpack type harness. A lot of people like the coin/relic Elite Metal Detector Pouch. I just like one that doesn't move around or slide down.

My first pouch was a tool pouch I got at the thrift store. Worked ok. Got a Garrett pouch and liked the internal zipper pocket, and it had a bigger zipper area that held a lot of trash, which was good - plus I could attach my pinpointer sheath to it. No where really for my lesche digger. Bought the Omega Relic Elite with solid bottom. To me, itís a huge pouch but has a pinpointer loop on the left and a built in digger sheath which is just plain awesome. I may buy their Coin Elite pouch someday too, itís smaller.

I've been very pleased with the Bucket Boss Handyman's Holster.

It's got what I need (big pouch for junk, smaller one for good stuff, pinpointer sheath, tool loop, and belt hook) and nothing I don't. You can wear it centered like an apron or off one hip, and it's under $15!

EXACTLY what I use also, got it from my local farm supply store. I wore out the stitching that holds the pouch to the belt but it took me 2 years of serious abuse and non-stop hunting. In my mind itís the PERFECT thing for what I do, and ALOT of people ďdo what I doĒ. Cheapo nailed it!

I've been using a Cabela's skeet shooters pouch, the last 2 years.
it has nice deep pockets, made of cordura fabric, with an adjustable belt.
Plenty of room for my trash finds, coin jar, pin pointer, spritzer spray bottle, an hand digger lasche

You have to be careful choosing a pouch or the next thing you know it weighs more than your detector and shovel combined and you get tired of packing all that weight around.

I think I could have overhauled a 4 barrel carburetor with all the stuff I was carrying around.

I've tried a couple of nice ones but ended up using a 2 dollar painters apron you get at Lowes and I've ordered one of Buzz Wilson's digger/pin pointer combo sheaths to fit a Leshe digger. Simple is easier...and cheaper.

I've been using a pouch like this one for about a year. Works great, has room for a few tools and plenty of space for finds.
Colonial metal detectors has many colors available. Very durable materials, mine shows no wear after over 100 hunts!

Google: Dead On HD54017 Utility pouch

I got mine from Amazon for $20. I cut off the carry handle. It is super rugged, has a big pouch for finds, lots of space for a digger and PP, but not too big.
I got an army surplus nylon pistol belt for it for $6. Quick on/off clip, makes for a serious rig.

I just use an old fanny pack from back in the day. It long enough to hold my digger and my pinpointer. I put coins in the outside zip pouch, the interior holds a lot of trash and has a little inner pocked in the main area for 'oddities' I don't want to get lost in the trash.

You may find something suitable here. I did.
