I Love my Veto Tec LC, let's get that out of the way. I am doing a lot of service work and the shouldering of my bag takes its toll on my back. Walking around a lot and climbing ladders is making the LC a pain sometimes. Does anyone have some real-world time with the Tec Pac? Can you offer any insight and experience with it? For $250 I want to be damn sure about it. Thanks in advance.

I've got one and love it. I've had it since it was first available, so I've used it A LOT.

For the money, the CLC 1132 is the better bang for the buck, but the Veto is much more heavy duty and will definitely last a lot longer. Plus, and this is a big plus, it stands up and will not fall over.

The CLC has more usable pockets. With the Veto I transferred my wrenches and nut drivers to a canvas bag, which is ok with me but not as convenient as having the extra tool panel like the CLC.

I still like the Veto better. It's a beast, and built to last.

How annoying are the straps when you are in tool bag mode?

I got one yesterday (Christmas Eve, early gift for myself) and am pretty impressed. Doesn't look nearly as big as most photos posted on here though & can fit nearly half the tools I was carrying in my previous shoulder bag, but I guess it is a good thing cutting down on the weight. I just hope the bag itself & pockets stretch out a little bit with some use.

Other than that, I am really happy with it. Very well made (apart from 'China' written on the tag) and I love the fact that it will stand upright when full of tools.

Couldn't believe I spent that much money on one, but I immediately forgot about it once I started using it. It's heavy, but so is everything else you put tools in. The straps and that metal hook that holds the back to the top handle is not annoying at all. It'll translate into the bag lasting longer. So the people who complain about it are trolls. I question durability with these kinds of things... time will tell. When the warranty is up you're going to be ready for something new at that point anyway.

I found it a bit awkward with that kind of weight on your back for the first couple of minutes but you'll quickly get used to it. It's comfortable... lots of padding.

Buy it. you live once.

That's good. Nothing worse that having the straps getting in the way when you fully deploy the bag. I think I am getting closer to pulling the trigger. I know my back will thank me. As long as my M12 Fuel Impact fits, along with my M12 sticklight and meters, I will be set. Am I correct assuming the larger area for power tools is directly behind the straps?




Thanks for the input!

Depending on how you load up the bag you can fit power tools in the front or back of the bag.

How do you like it so far?

I had to return the bag due to lack of space. My tech LC actually held quite a bit more than the backpack. When I transferred everything from the tech LC I found that I was actually short on room and my M12 impact wouldn't fit. The bag is almost too tall and two narrow and with all of my meters and equipment there just wasn't room for any power tools to fit comfortably.

I bout the XL nearly 5 years ago, way before the tech series. The only wear is very next to none. I bought another one about 3 months ago just for doing Service and small scale work. between the two i find that i'll augment my smaller one with tools from the other bag. Never tried to put Power tools in either one as i might use a screw gun maybe once a week.
