Ideas for carrying a couple of bits?

If you would need to carry 2-3 screwdriver hex bits, what is the most smart way? I would want something taking as little space as possible.

I got this one. You could probably use different bits on it.

It's not like the image. You get 2 double-ended bits, for philips and regular.

Thanks!  Now I'm waiting for one to arrive. Then my pocket "tool box" will be complete.

Replace the ink cartridge in a ball point pen with the bits you want to carry.  (I've posted this earlier.)

I've been eying the Toolpen for a long time, if you want more bits. Just can't justify it.

From the Budget EDC, Upcycle thread

Detron suggested the use of RAM packages
That is probably for more bits than you need.


From the same thread... you probably could also use drill sleeves

Possably more than you want....
This kit is sold under several brands, this one is the ProSource??something or another that is Walmart generic tool brand. The compartment in the bit driver will hold 1 of the 6 bit holders, or if you ditch the holder you can stuff 18bits in it with a little shaking. Downside for US is it is mm.

As you can see the driver is about the same size as a 111mm SAK

The second pic is a smaller aluminum driver that holds 7 of the same 4mm bits, but unfortunately doesn't have hex so you would need to refill it from  another kit to fit your needs. These drivers are found branded under random names. Be careful and make sure the one you puck up has the magnet still in it as they ocasionaly dont and have no bit retention without.
