Eh, I think it would have been smarter to give it less of a fuel can look so it's not ever mistaken for one. Paint it something other than red or yellow... Neat concept though.

Not my bag baby but like the color. I'd rather people think it's $25 in fuel rather than a couple hundred in tools.

If you are so limited in space that your only option is to carry a toolbox on the outside of the vehicle, like on a roof rack, then this is probably a smart idea. It's less likely to get poached than what is obviously a toolbox.

For any other purpose it wouldn't be that useful as the space is limited versus what you have to pay for it.

Yeah, I was thinking it would be more subtle in certain spots... however, with the price of a gallon of fuel, it is just as likely to get swiped!

Pretty ingenious, but years ago I switched away from hard metal tool boxes for wheeling. They tools clank around too much. I much prefer the soft bags that keep my tools quiet.
