Looked OK, but I stopped reading at bottle opener. Professional my ass. Drinking aside, you're not much of a mechanic if you can't get a cap off easily with pretty much anything else in that box.

The topeak accessories are good, and the basket is pretty good too for what it costs, but a $15 rack well installed will carry more than you think. I've regularly loaded one with 50-75lbs.
