So I know a lot of people don't like the idea of the backpack tool bag. I however think its the best option for me. I've got 10 floors and about 2 miles worth of belt that I work on. So to the question, has anyone had both? Perfer one over the other? I really like the veto, just can't make myself spend that kind of money on a bag right now. Pictures are always helpful lol. Thanks in advance!

I looked at the Klein, not very impressive. The material is thin and feels more like a jacket than a toolbag.
The CLC is at the very least, heavier material.

The klein has lasted me almost 2 years now.

I beat the **** out of it too. Both indoors, and out doors, and thousands of miles on the back of my motorcycle

Have any pics of it loaded? Do the tools fit in the pouches decent?

I think I like the look of the clc better, but looks play no role in this decision. Just looking for good functionality and durability

I work at a large amusement park and have to walk around with my tools while we are open. I use the Klien backpack and i love it! I am able to load all my hand tools, and some safety gear and walk around comfortably. They put some thought into it and the pouches fit all my tools good. I will try and snap some pics of it tomorrow.

Have had it for 8 months now and minimal signs of wear.

here's what I carry daily




This is an earlier pic from a cleaning of all the loose parts, wire nuts, etc...

Good lookin setup! I pulled the trigger on the clc 1134 this morning. Went with it over the Klein for 3 reasons..1- it has the sternum strap, 2-has 2 large zipped compartments compared to the 1 on the Klein and 3-it was only $53.xx with free shipping on eBay lol. I'll get pics put here and the tool bag thread as soon as I get it.

Did you guys check out the clc 1132?
I did check out the 1132, just didn't really care for it. I got the 1134 in today, shipping got delayed due to the weather. Hopefully I'll have time this evening to get it loaded up. I'll get pictures up asap.

I have the Klein bag and I've been happy with it. Carries what I need and I've beat it up pretty good for about two years and if the material wasn't dirty you would think its new. It's held up great. It's nice to have your hands free and be able to carry other things. I would recommend it. Half the people in my shop have one.

These backpacks interested me til I tried fitting my longer shank tools in them. Six incn nut drivers and 8 inch Klein cushion grips flop around like crazy because the handle is an inch and a half above the pocket opening. And I don't like the three inch wide pockets for the same reasons. I like the pack idea. I just wish for a tool tote 20 inches tall they could put a row of narrow pockets across the top row for holding the longer tools. Otherwise, pretty good solution storing tools.
