    Best Tool Bag

    I am not just a tool fanatic...but also a fanatic about what I put my tools in. I really love canvas open tool bags where I can see everything. What do you all prefer and like? I cant afford the real nice canvas or leather ones so I have to replace mine at least once a year from. Any suggestions?? Would love to find an old linemans canvas or leather bag.

    I bought a Veto Pro LC but hated lugging it around cause it was so heavy (mainly cause of all the space that I filled with things I don't usually need) ... so I switched to an electricians tool pouch ... canvas with an open top (that can be zipped up) it's smaller and lighter and still fits pretty much everything I use on a regular basis. My supervisor introduced it to me ... and now half the crew uses them :P

    All I can say is, I've had the same leather linesman bag for over thirty years now. Wish I knew the brand name. Not that I'd buy a new one though. They don't grow cows like that anymore.

    I have a co-worker who has one of these and it looks durable enough with a molded bottom.

    This will be my next tool bag purchase.

    Veto,period. I never look for anything long and it protects my tools and instruments.
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.

    Veto LC, you don't need anything else. If it's to heavy then either buff up or take some of the tools you don't need out.
    I'm not tolerating Political Correctness anymore, from now on it's tell it like it is.

    Have a Veto OT-XL coming that I ordered online. I was going to go for the bigger bag, but I'm not buff enough for it I guess. This will be my first Veto bag.
    Not as lean, not as mean, but I'm still a hardcore, ass-kicking, hard charging Marine! Oohrah!

    That is being penny wise and pound foolish, I have a Veto XL, you can get it for $100 to $120. It has a 5 year warranty with all shipping to and from included, actually they send you a brand new bag with a tag to return your old one. So it is like only $20 per year for a tool bag you will love, and any thing past 5 years that you get out of it is a bonus.

    I had a Veto Pro until the truck was stolen. After the first week, it stayed on the truck, because I have to take almost everything up a ladder or through a hatch, and although very nice, I'd only use one again to hand carry tools in a residential situation. It felt like it started at 30 lbs empty. I am very buff for my age, and I can match guys half my age for lifting pound-for-pound, but by the time I put the tools into the bag, it weighed almost as much as a compressor.
