TOOLS I don't need no stinking tools. LOL
Actually carry multiple bags. I'm a tool whore and carry more than I probably should.
I try to prep my vehicles ahead of time so I don't have to work on them away from my shop. But that doesn't always work
I always buy quality tools for my shop but in my jeep/trucks/motorcycles I carry Harbor Freight. If you loose or someone steals them no tears. I haven't had a catastrophic tool failure yet to make me upgrade.

I'm in the process of buying old American made Craftsman/Snap-on/Mac stuff because the new Craftsman/Kobalt stuff is JUNK. Those squared off 10/12 point sockets will ruin your fasteners. I'm still debating on a box for assembling this collection, but since a theft I've been stuck with junk for my travel kit and that's about over.

i found a pelican style case from Harbor freight and separated the tools with pencil bags from Walmart in the school supply section. This setup had worked perfect for me!!!!

I just bought a Bucket Boss Super tool roll. It's been great so far. It holds all my regular hand tools. I also carry a separate duffel bag with all my recovery gear, extra fasteners, tape, wire, lubricants and such, lightweight jackstand and that sort of thing.

I am never organized enough to keep my tools in the box they come in. Bag is the way to go. Might have to pick through sockets to find that unicorn socket but a couple tool bags and your set!

I use a Stanley tool bag. It packs down small and prevents things from rattling. Everything in the picture fits in the bag except for the belts, hatchet, hammer, prybar, and black combination wrench.

I like the fact that you carry flare wrenches.

I have found with Flare Nut Wrenches I have had all brands , Snap-on was the best at breaking louse and not rounding off the nuts by far. This is were I would spent the extra for them, as to replace those things in the boonies is a big pain....

I run Toolpak backpacks.
I really love them because they have a ton of slots for your tools, and I've found that they are pretty easy to customize, using a stitch ripper.
Also, most of the compartments have a water resistant cover that lays over the tools, so you can lay it out on the roadside and kinda protect your tools a bit while you work. Screenshot_20190501-233729_eBay.jpg
