In the field? Whats that LOL......Thas not a shop either, thats just my garage.....
However, if I do need to carry some tools out somewhere, the sockets stay pretty well in place on the racks so they just go into a small tool box.

As evidence by my field bag, there's no good way to organize sockets. I like the 1/4 turn lock rail the best, but it's not practical for 1/2 or larger sockets. The standard clip rails suck, and I won't buy them for Mobil use again. This pack just has the bare necessities in it to get through an on call break down and get the ride back to the station to off load.

Those socket racks are great, keeps everything tight and orderly. I have metal ones which stick to a magnetic tray which makes working on chippers, trucks, stumpers etc easier. One tray for tools, one for parts

I use magnetic socket trays that orient the sockets vertically.

I like to flip the sockets I use most upside down, so that if I'm looking for, say a 12mm, there's no confusion as to whether I'm going for a 12mm or a 13mm.

I mainly work on Asian cars, so I have 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, & 17mm flipped upside down.
