    Eyes and ears first, and then I go straight for the Veto LC. Unless the job is downtown, most of the time I'm parked within 50' of where I'm working, so it's not really as big of a deal as if I was doing mall rooftops.

    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.

    too small, what are you wanting to carry?

    the Craftsman bag I got seems to be okay. only used it a couple days, but so far so good.

    Wimps!

    I carry my Veto XL everywhere.

    Ok, to be honest, it is a bit heavy, so I've been looking at downsizing a little to a Veto LC-Tech and setting my XL up as an install bag.

    On another note, I figured out what "fails" on the Veto zippers, and how to fix it so the zipper works like new.
    The repair takes less than 30 seconds!
    I'll make a thread and post a couple of pictures this weekend.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    SOB, tonight I was going to post a picture of how to fix the Veto bags zipper when it isn't closing right, but on my last call today one of my zippers flat out broke!

    2 year old bag, still in great shape, except now the tooth part of one of the zippers is broken, and it isn't even on the side I've done the repair to the slider on.

    Isn't there a 5 year warranty on the zipper?

    5 year warranty.

    just used their warranty process and it was as described, zero downtime.

    the zipper on one side became unstiched from the bag.

    Good to hear they are still on the Zero Downtime things.

    For a while, they had removed it from their website.

    My zippers are occasionally sticking or not completely zipping.

    You still going to post those pics, Mark?

    I got accused of abusing my Veto bag the last time I swapped it under warranty. They started making it sound like they couldn't replace it, etc, etc. I finally talked them into the replacement but when the zipper started failing two days after recieving the new one I figured "screw it" and used it about a year or so until the zippers just flat out wouldn't do anything anymore and threw it in the basement.

    I heard the reason they won't go to a nice brass zipper is because it would loose it's waterproof-ness. Well, big shocker, when the bag won't close, it doesn't have much waterproof-ness either.

    I won't even think about buying one until they figure out how to put a zipper that's worth a damned on it.

    so for a fairly new veto owner i should expect to have zipper issues i take it. it kinda defeats the purpose of why i bought it though. i was hoping to not have to replace my tool bag anymore. but you get the 5 year warranty so use it. p[aid good money for it make them stand behind it for the full term of warranty.
