Hi everyone,

I would like a new finds bag, and who else to ask but all of your wonderful experts.

The issue is that a lot of bags seem to be for men who are larger than me. No offence meant I’m that description, it’s just that most people in our hobby are men, and most people are a little larger than me.
I’m pretty slim.

Can anyone recommend a bag that pulls in small around the waist and maybe a leg for stability?? I’m really struggling to find something.

Help!! Thank you. 🥰🥰
Live long and prospect

I bought this one earlier this year, pretty compact and pockets on the side one I put pinpointer in the other a very slim trowel. Main pocket I use for scrap and a clam shell type box for the good stuff. Can’t knock it for the money , been great so far. Doesn’t come with a belt but I had one anyway. Haven’t got a clue how to post a link so here’s a screenshot, came from an eBay seller.

Or you can buy the same thing with "Deus" and pay about £25! :lol:

Aldi is selling a joiners nail bag type pouch at the moment for not a lot of money...it's possibly a little on the small side, but might suit you?

B&M Bargains also sell Rolson tool pouches for £9.99 which are a touch bigger...

I use one of these, but cut the small flappy little pocket off the front as it seemed a bit pointless..

I have a drop leg pouch I got from ebay a good few years ago which has a large section for rubbish, a smaller front pouch for good finds and has a couple of side pockets, one big enough for a pointer. If you look for drop leg pouches there are a ton of options. Just a case of getting one that you think will suit your needs.

Couple more pics. Main pocket has inner that can be turned inside out which is quite handy for getting all the mud etc out!

I have a Protector Tech bag - off Amazon - £20ish - lots of pockets and adjustable. I also have an old Garrett pouch for rubbish.

I recommend the Dunlop work trousers from Sports Direct https://www.sportsdirect.com/dunlop-on- ... e=63400404
I have worn a pair for about 4 years, still going strong. A pocket each side, one for bronze and one for lead. If you can get a pair that fits...

The Searcher finds pouches look to be well designed and in several variations. :thumbsup:
