    Default paint/flag accessories

    What do you use to carry extra flags and paint?

    Any commercial products out there?

    Just wondering, since we have to typically mark 3 colors on all locates and can at times need 5 or 6 colors.

    When I'm doing a marathon locate I usually just fill up a backpack with supplies. If I didn't pay so much for mine, I'd use one of these

    The belt is similar to a back brace, and the pockets are designed for quick release with one hand. The elastic loops between the pockets can hold extra cans.

    I've tried those single can holders, and they are a pain in the arse to get used to. And if you are only going to use a single can...... you might as well toss it in the back pocket.

    Fox Valley makes four or five different styles of paint can holders that attatch to your belt or belt loop. I just got their flyer in the mail last week. I can't seem to find the flyer or the website right now. I know two of the paint can holders were only 2.95 each. When I find more info I'll add it here.

    Here is the new 2010 product catalog for Fox Valley. They do have quite a few different can carrying products. I want to order a few of the Carry-Can-Do's. We used to have something similar to this years ago and it was a real easy way to carry extra paint.

    I see they also have a paint stick now that is 6 inches longer than average. This would be great for us taller guys. I just wish Fox Valley paint sticks would work better for their competitions paint.
