Tool Storage Reviews & Buying Guides

Tool storage takes many different forms. We’ve reviewed the best tool box and the best tool chest. Possibly the hottest new tool storage solution includes the likes of Milwaukee Packout and DeWalt ToughSystem 2.0. You can’t, however, forget to factor in garage storage solutions. Those include the Ryobi Link Modular Storage System and Milwaukee Packout Shop Storage. Our favorite tool storage solutions include gigantic tool chests from the likes of Husky and Craftsman. Even customizable, pre-filled boxes from Sonic Tools really capture our attention. We love features like soft close drawers, locking casters, power and USB options, and the over-the-top build quality. Tool storage has gone from blad to “wow” in just a few scant years.
