Looking for a finds bag.

Post by Beany_bot » Tue Dec 06, 2011 3:01 pm

Hi,

I'm looking for a new finds bag, ideally inexpensive and with enough pockets (1 for junk, 1 for keepers, 1 small one for special finds etc).

I had been using a cheap bumbag as I liked the position and accessibility of it on my body and the fact I didn't have to worry about it slipping or falling off.

So something similar would be good.
The one thing I didn't like about the bumbag was traipsing about looking like a Floridian pensioner! =))

I have a couple, the Garett one is good to go on a belt, but when full it pulls down a bit, I also have a Joan Allen one that will also go over your shoulder and I now mainly use this one

I bought a belt and pouches from my local government surplus store. Enough room for everything slung behind me so not in the way. £15 well spent. Special finds still go in a little baggy in a zipped pocket. No way I'm gonna lose them! Cheers Alex

I got mine off eBay. It's very much like a market traders money pouch.

It clips on around the waist, and I pull it round to my right hip for depositing my finds easilly. I can also clip the pro-pointer holder to it.

It does the job for me, and cost about £5 + P&P :)

That's a belter, although the pro pointer looks a little loose in the pocket. I can just imagine kneeling down to retrieve something, and it dropping out. Is it secure?

Well i've got my new belt, and yet to try it in the field. It's quite small and compact but will carry most bits and bobs, that you're likely to need. Not able to carry rubbish, but i'd always used a plastic bag anyway. Here's a pic to give you some idea. All the pouches are zippered. Frank.
