    I used to be a die-hard Veto guy.

    Then I tried this bag out:

    Best tool bag i've owned so far, more organized storage than you can shake a stick at. And the zippers haven't failed me yet which I can't say about any of the Veto bags i've had over the years.

    Eaallred,

    It is interesting that you say that. I bought that very bag last week and so far I haven't been impressed with it. I know that it can take a while to get the arrangment worked out, so I will stick with this bag for a least another month. Maybe it will grow on me by then. One question, do you use the shoulder strap that came with it ?

    My diagnostic tool bag is my back pocket. I clip a hook on my belt for my drill & meter. My veto doesn't even have much stuff compared to some & weighs a ton

    I just bought a Craftsman electricians bag because my LC is too heavy to tote all the time.

    The TP3 looks interesting. Looks like it stands up too!!

    Someone here posted about a CLC(?) bag they bought at JS and made a cpvc stand setup.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

    I use the shoulder strap. It did take a bit to finally get it all squared away how I like it. It's dialed in pretty good now and I love it!

    I use a Husky too. Similar to yours but doesnt have the fold out side. Good bag and inexpensive.
