So given you didn't allocate any time to unpacking and filtering all your tools, I guess you didn't take any time to unpack the tools - you just took the box from the UPS driver and tossed it in you pannier. And I'm sure you find it real comforting have all those useless ratchets and their excess weight with you.
And how does your "tool kit" fit under the seat of your bike like the ADV Designs tool kit does? Not everyone wants to drive around with the big panniers attached.
Frankly, your comparison of "equivalency" is beyond ridiculous.
