    I'm stickin' with a Homer Bucket and a Huskey wrap. I hate walking back to the truck and can't imagine how all my stuff will fit in a neat little bag.

    It's heating season...I need my meter, digital manometer, amp clamp, digital thermometer, Husky compartment bags with 3 amp fuses, popper, wire nuts, jumpers, probes, spade connectors etc. And all the usual hand tools. And a bunch of stuff you guys would probably laugh at. Back off about the doll, man. She makes me feel better.

    I use a tool pouch with attached side bags and I'm able to carry 90% of what I need all the time, but I do use a bag for installing tools- it weights about 45 lbs full- it's a Husky and has been doing fine for a few years.

    Tool pouch is getting heavy though at about 15 lbs.?

    I just use an electricians stye tool pouch. I carry it in a metal pail. Same tools stay in the pouch. The pails contents change depending on job. Like today for make up air heaters the pail has pipe dope, scotch pad, rags, wire brush, and a tuning hammer. Good thing about the pail is it doesn't break when roping,

    Veto LC for about two years now. Best tool bag I have owned yet! Worth every penny, and I'd be hard-pressed to even think about trying another brand. I don't overload the bag, I'm very gentle with the zippers, and I spray 'em down with a little bit of WD-40 every couple months. Haven't had any issues.

    Nobody sells veto bags or clc bags around here but I bought the clc for $50.00. Theres only one veto tech listing on eBay(where this one was purchased) and it's going for $156.00. I'm disappointed that for 3x as much money you still get a bag made in china.

    There are two things that aren't good on the clc, no biggie because i also do sheet metal work but the bottom where the tray slides in is poorly structured and starting sagging within a week causing the bag to fall over but I built the box and all was good.

    The other problem is the side that has one large zippered pocket is just barely big enough to slide your fingers in, it should have had been stitched with sides that allowed one to easily put there hand in.Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1348337352.089235.jpg

    I've had this bag for 1 1/2 yrs with daily use and it's starting to show wear on the bottom

    Something to keep in mind, if this bag only makes it two years that would still take 2 more purchases and 4 more years to equal the veto tech. From the looks of things it will make it more than 2 years.

    Overall I would say this is a great bag for someone starting out in residential and some light commercial. I have taken this bag up and down ladders and that's it biggest downfall, with the open top design it makes it easy to catch tools on things and or dump your entire bag. I dumped the bag a few times when heading to or from a unit and in transit in which case the veto would be zipped up and you would only need to pick the bag and maybe a couple things up.

    I haven't run any calls with it yet but the veto held everything I already use and a little more, the bottom looks more durable than any other bag designs I've seen, this is the first place most wear so that's good. If you look in the picks there are holes next to the handle that look like a good spot for rags. I still find it hard to believe we should be paying $156.00 for a tool bag made in china but maybe after a couple years I'll be a big believer : ).

    I'll do an update in about a month or two if anyone is interested.
