Klein's Tradesman Pro Organizer Backpack is a little cramped. I store my hammer along the bottom of my bag and am wondering if I can fit a drill inside. I most likley can but it might be a tight fit.
The other day I stopped at a job site and saw an hvac technician wearing one. Looks like it would be a good thing if you were climbimg into an attic or any other secluded area. He had the Klein back pack.Does anyone own a tool backpack? Milwaukee, Klein tools, and veto pro pac seem to be the top ones. I saw the Milwaukee and Klein at HD. Thinking about picking one up. I like the veto but I can't afford it.
I rather stick with a company that only makes backpacks and not carry one that is just one item in their inventory of a thousand.I like the Milwaukee ultimate jobsite backpack. I used to have Klien but went through 2 of them in two years. The zippers are the weak part. Plus they don’t have enough pouch holders for tools. Not much innovation in them either. The Milwaukee folds down all the way. It has tons of storage for tools and can easily fit drills and small fastening boxes like dewalt. They also have water bottle holders on both sides. This is a really good backpack for work on roofs doing led retrofitt or Ac matinence. And who would think a back pack is used to replace a tool belt. Tool belts are for apprentice that do production work. Most foreman and people in charge don’t wear them. They carry the small tools like cutters and strippers in there back pocket for the immediate task at hand.
I refer you to this thread: https://www.electriciantalk.com/f14/backpacks-again-265420/Yeah. I have other tool bag too but I need something I can take up and down the ladder. Do u have any pics?
Looks like a decent set up.I have a dewalt pack that rigged with my goto hand stuff plus a m12 drill/driver. as a low volt guy its been a blessing. my packout has everything else and is a great companion. If i do any manhattan service work I pack a small tool roll with barebones and throw that in a traditional travel backpack with a laptop. My dewalt bag has,
1 ratchet with 3 deep sockets (mostly for rack work, occasional other things)
1 set dikes
1 set linemans
1 set needlenose
1 11 in 1 screwdriver
1 catspaw prybar

1 set hook and pick (awl, 45 and 90 degree and hook)
2 sets wire stripper for various gauges

1 coax crimper
