Motorcycle Tool Tube.

https://www.webbikeworld.com/motorcy...-tube-storage/

At time , when I go on long tours, I have all my tools in these Tool tube and save some space and I know where to look for my tools.
Light weight and easy to install, just beside the hard case and its away for sight, so some security there.

I did not get one from the purpose made ones , but made one from the shipping container document tubes and there are many in the scrap yard , same standard thou.

I mounted a pair to my sw motech racks since I donít have factory hard cases. One for tools and one for the first aid kit and camping basics. They are great to have if not a little fiddly to open/close

welding rod storage containers work good. Plastic, waterproof, and many different colors available. Cost about $10 each new.

For some reason the farm equip store wouldn't ship to California, so I just got my pair from eBay (China shipped).

My buddy had one of those tubes attached vertically on his pannier. He unscrewed the top to get his tools out and looked through an empty tube to the ground below. Even though he had the tools wrapped in a case the pounding over washboard gravel roads was enough to break through the bottom of the tube and 'bye bye' everything that was in there.

As stated by others... an MSR fuel bottle fits perfectly in the tool-tube.

A nice bottle of 10 y/0 Laphroaig fits nicely in there too.
