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.

You may find something suitable here. I did.

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.

Total Coins as of 07/06/2020 $209.72
Running total for coins the past 7ish years on and off.

I still use a nail apron from Lowe's for my finds and a web belt for my pp and digger, I'm cheap but it works

I used all kinds of army pouches and tool pouches, then I bought a Relic Elite. I wish I would have just saved the money and bought that one works well and is exactly the right tools for the right job.

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 its the PERFECT thing for what I do, and ALOT of people do what I do. Cheapo nailed it!
