It seems over priced at $60 and seems very small at 10″ x 6″ x 3″….. (This makes it smaller then my colorful Klein Tools 5539CPAK 3 Pack bags I believe are to small.) It just seems like an expensive wallet? (Actually a cheap Woman’s wallet! LOL 🙂 ) But there were no reviews on this item…. I do like the fact there was no plastic or mesh though. 🙂
I saw a new product from veto…. the PB4 small tool bag. I read some of the reviews and they were funny. I can not say if the product is good or not…. but one side has a see through mesh panel? Sizes below:
Veto Pro Pac PB4 is 9″ x 5.5″ x 2″
Klein Tools 5139 is 12.5″ x 7″ x 1″ I really like this size…. I have a couple different brands like this one.
Klein Tools 5539CPAK 3 Pack is 10″ x 8″ x 3.5″ The opening is too small…. but the zipper is very nice. (My hand might be too big?) The grommet is also nice…. to attach to items…. which also causes the problems with the opening.
I will purchase almost any bag…. and I love my Veto real tool bags. But really mesh…. is it 1980? Also a plastic side! Is this a tool bag or what? Also the reviews on amazon! I really rather see no reviews then housewives reviewing tool bags. LOL 🙂 That is actually why I did not purchase the 1980 throwback bags. Sure I use one of my colorful weird Klein Tool bags as a compact flash drive case in my office (nerd stuff bag). But these Klein bags are pretty worthless when you are doing manly things! LOL 🙂 Plus I do not need a $10 Veto pencil case…. unless “I receive the product at a discount to write an honest, unbiased review.” LOL 🙂 Search “discount” in the reviews…. 23/ 48 reviews got a discount. Just saying.
Well this is my other Veto Pro Pac bag…. it actually weighs more. This is like my junk bag for all my big stuff. I like this bag also but usually leave this bag in my truck.
Well it is technically 54.98 pounds…. I think after 5-6 months I can come up with my first complaint. I started using my nut drivers more lately (for some reason)? Unless I rearrange my bag my location for them is not going to work. It is to hard to slide them in and out…. They end up all in a bunch and then I need to read the label each time. Instead of exchanging for the bigger size. Also I might have be carrying too many wrenches! But I did get rid of some of them. 🙂
This is a link to the Veto Pro Pac Tech XL Tool Bag by the way.
My setup has changed (it has been over 5 months now)…. When I could actually see my tools in my Veto XL Tool Bag it made a huge productivity difference for me. I really love this “organization” concept my Wife talks about. Get this…. when I need a tool I can find it!?! 🙂 I use to just use my Knipex pliers (which are not a bad choice) but using the correct tool is nice.
The only problem I can see is the weight! Which I am pretty sure each of my bags have gotten heavier. I also purchased another bag for my power tools…. a Custom LeatherCraft Tote Bag (which is pretty nice for a bucket bag.) My Veto XL Tool Bag weighs over 45 pounds and my Veto XL Tote weighs over 28 pounds. I will need to post what my bag actually has in it now! 🙂
- Each bag is using the same base…. to cut cost I assume in China? 🙂
- Each bag is really the same size…. except one obviously has more structure! 🙂
- One cost around $100 more….
- But each has their own unique uses.
- If you were purchasing just one I would purchase the Tool Bag no questions asked.
- I would personal purchase both? (Well because I did. 🙂 ) Why not? The bags USE TO BE made in the USA! (Actually a reason not to purchase the Bag to be honest.) The owner of the company use to be/or is a carpenter. Which means he really should know better then to make stuff in China. I know I try and purchase USA made hand tools! 🙂

This is a whole bunch of pictures before I put all my crap in my Veto Pro Pac Bag! 🙂
Well I purchased the Veto Pro Pac Tech XL Tool Bag after purchasing their Tote. I really like both bags. This is a picture review of my new Veto Pro Pac Tech XL Tool Bag…. I have actually owned this bag for over 4 months and I forgot about reviewing it. But I talked to Greg the other day…. this has got to be the best purchase I have purchased to date!
The problem with every bag except this one…. can really be summed up with my wrench collecting photo. I was carrying around (picture above) way to maybe wrenches. They really do have different uses…. but I could never find any of them in my BucketBoss. I would away use my Knipex pliers which is not a bad choice. 🙂 I also have purchased way over the cost of this bag because I could not find the tools I needed.
Well my Bucket Boss GateMouth Jr. Tool Bag started to rip and more importantly…. I was loading it with to many tool. (Maybe this was the reason for the ripping? 🙂 ) So I started looking for a replacement bag. I was looking at a Klein Tools canvas bag…. But I didn’t like the “moisture-resistant” wording used. So I am going to use this as my tool bag temporarily.
But I am also planing on purchasing the Veto Pro Pac Tech XL or the Veto Pro Pac TECH-LC Tool Bag? For my actual “tool bag”…. Then use this beach bag for large crap. I could not decide which tech bag…. That is why I only have the cargo bag now. Tell me what you use! It is a lot of trouble trying to purchase a bag! Now I know how Women feel! JUST KIDDING! LOL! I have no clue what their issues are? 🙂 Maybe if all Women had to purchase this bag they would never have to get another one? 🙂
BTW I never really cared for the bucketboss tool bag….. when you loaded it with some tools you really could never zip it unless you were very determined. So the bag always stayed open…. which allow crap to fall out.
I also apparently support China like our US government and Veto…. but apparently Veto bags use to be made in the USA?
This is all the stuff I had in my Bucket Boss GateMouth Jr. Tool Bag….. I am also showing all the wear damage. I tried zipping the bag with nothing in it and I think the hinges are the problem also? But the bag was really over stuffed at all times and not used correctly. 🙂
This is my VETO PRO PAC CT-XL Large Cargo Tote loaded up…. note I left the tag on. I also leave my tags on all my hats, shirts and pants! Yes of course I do not wash my clothing! I have to keep the stickers and tags looking fly! (When I use to wear baseball hats (when I had hair)…. I thought I washed them? Fitted hats start to stink…. I thought? 🙂 )
Also let me know what tool bag you use before I purchase another China bag.
