Which is the best finds pouch?

Post by Paulthespade » Sat Jul 23, 2016 11:23 pm

I am looking to get a lighter finds pouch as I currently use a shoulder bag. This is great for the days I need to carry stuff that bit further from the car and can't be bothered going back. Have seen drop leg and market trader style and wondered what people's thoughts were? I see some time ago there was a link but they have all gone out of date so thought I would bring back a similar thread. As I say this is for short trips and I will be near the car?

You'll probably get 101 different answers to that question, but I use this kind of thing, 151249120525 on a well know auction site, literally dozens to choose from and priced from as little as £3 delivered, mine simply hangs off my belt and does not get in the way.

Bit like buying a pair of shoes in many respects.

When you find the best run of the mill one thats lasted years they are no longer available.

I purchased a Austrian Army webbing belt from e-bay and attach my own pouches etc.

As a individual pouch gets past its sell by date, I just change it over with a replacement.

It depends whether you want it to hold your digger, pinpointer etc as well as finds.

Shoulder bag - great capacity, convenient, plenty about. Trouble is when you lean forward to approach the find spot, the bag swings directly in front of you.

Webbing belt then add your own scabbards / pouches. Versatile and practical. Looks great in the summer but in the winter on top of bulky clothes it makes you look like a sack tied in the middle. :D

Drop leg bag. Looks like a good thing, probably try one next time.

At the moment I am using a webbing belt for tools but with a normal lightweight flat finds pouch on its own nylon belt.

Thanks for some ideas, quite like the idea of a leg pouch as it doesn't swing in front of you when you begin to dig. I saw a previous link that had had some good suggestions but the links seem out of date. Love the idea of the chalk bag as well,got one knocking about and so might give it a whirl first.

I have tried a shoulder bag. Find it better as it doesn't catch on my headphone wire like a bum bag in front of me.

Produce a list of items you would like to incorporate into the finds pouch - spade hanger, pin-pointer holder and securing lanyard etc...............and then just make one up!!

It's a simple task, no university degree required and relatively speaking, it costs nowt! ::g
