Kerry Saw Pouch - Review

Trucks are a total mixed blessing. Great cargo space, but when it rains...not so great cargo space. Most tools can be kept dry either by their cases (if not out for too long) or by tossing them up in the front seat (which can be a real pain in the rear). But the table saw, cursed by its size, can only sit in the back and get soaked.

Well, not anymore. Kerry Woodworking, makers of all things pouchy, have just devised their most intriguing item to date, the Kerry Saw Pouch. The concept is about as basic as they come: a fitted tarp for your jobsite table saw. They sent us one so that we could get a look-see and here's what we thought...

The pouch is made out of heavy duty tarp material (UV resistant woven polyethylene) and has 'belt loops' at the bottom so you can cinch it tight with a bungee when you're on the road. The stitching is all tough and solid and all in all, the thing doesn't look like it's going to be falling apart anytime soon, if ever.

We see the benefits of this for when we cart our saw around from jobsite to jobsite, but the real plus that we experienced takes place at the jobsite. Because of its size and the added space needed to properly use the thing, the table saw is usually the lone tool that has to sit out in the driveway. On drizzly days, we usually plop a scrap of plywood on top of it to 'keep it dry.' Not terribly effective. We used the Kerry Pouch on a few nasty days and found it to be a much nicer alternative. It easily comes off and when it's on, it's fitted enough so the wind isn't going to blow it away and most importantly, it kept our saw perfectly dry. What more can you ask? That's what the item sets out to do.

The Saw Pouch is available in two sizes (28x24 and 38x24) and are priced at $30 to $35. On their website, Kerry says that custom sizes are also available if neither of these work.
