I noticed this item on Amazon yesterday. Being the oddball of the linguistics crowd, I immediately latched onto the wording of “DEWALT DG5101 Small Technician’s Pouch”.  I couldn’t help thinking that it was made with small technicians in mind.  I posed a fake question (you have to scroll down to see the questions):
