    Toolpak backpack or klein backpack?

    Hey guys im looking to purchase a tool backpack. Ive been using a electrician's tool pouch to carry all my tools around but its just getting heavy for me especially when carrying multiple like parts or motors. Im looking to purchase either the klein backpack or the toolpack 4 pack backpack. just wondering how sturdy it holds as well as if its waterproof (alot of rooftop work). Also does anyone know if toolpak is sold locally in ontario, canada?

    Thanks

    If you work on the roof alot get a Veto, Plastic tub for a bottom, and throw the big shoulder strap over your back

    If you need a backpack, your carrying way to many tools.

    It isn't available yet, but Veto is coming out with a backpack.

    You can see pictures of the prototype unveiled at the AHR expo in this thread: http://hvac-talk.com/vbb/showthread....=veto+backpack
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Veto tech LC best out there I go through a bag every 3 months
    This has lasted about 9 months. And still looks good and no tears.
    I bought one for each of my techs, so they can't tease me about the price.

    I paid about $55 with tax for mine at the store. I've been happy with it. It actually held all of my tools. But it get a little heavy once I put my tools in it. I actually went back through and took out what I don't use daily.

    Anyone have luck with this backpack. I am losing alot of interest in craftsman bc of the quality but when I saw this in the store it seemed to be built well.

    I bought mine last year. That and plus the Canadian $ being stronger than the US $ probably explains the price difference.

    I have seen the AWP and Klein bag in person and would buy the AWP bag over the Klein one. It is a great price and looks very rugged. I bet with receipt and I little squawking lowes would replace it if any problems happend.

    I use my tool bag and a rope. If I wanna get all spider monkey I put some tools in a Dickie backpack and climb the ladder.
