How to choose a good bag for welding
Ideally, a good welding bag is made of durable and tough material. Also, it provides enough space for your jacket, gloves, grinder and tools. A helmet catch is also very helpful. Moreover, a good welding bag has a sufficient number of smaller pockets which allow you to organize your smaller pieces of equipment like welding rods and small hand tools or pencils.
It is also likely that you will need a designated space for your water bottle and some food.
Also, consider if you prefer a real backpack or rather a carry bag with a shoulder strap. I prefer backpacks, because in my eyes a backpack is more convenient to carry around.
