Review – Custom Leathercraft 1134 Carpenter’s Tool Backpack
So you’re out in the field and you use tools. You could carry a toolbox (NOT), or a gym style bag (NOT) and have back problems from lugging it around with one arm all the time, or you could check out tool backpacks.
It seemed inevitable that in time the incredibly useful backpack would find it’s way into service, and or construction type environments. I mean who wants to carry a toolbox from the truck to the actual work site?? (who knows how far away you have to park at some jobs)
So a tool backpack is really a no-brainer, it’s more about choosing which one fits your needs best and we are doing an entire article on comparing the Top 10 Tool Backpacks which can help you decide if you don’t already know which one you want.
But for now, let’s concentrate on this CLC 1134 which was designed for all types of installers, repair technicians and really anyone who needs to transport tools while having hands free. Think — from truck to work site, from ground up a ladder, etc…
This CLC 1134 is Super Popular for a reason!
This bad boy has 48 pockets of multiple sizes, more than enough to hold everything you use regularly PLUS a little extra for those other items (like a water bottle, maybe a sandwich–You KNOW what I’m talking about, heck I’ve heard of guys putting their uniforms in it! ). If you need more pockets, check out the CLC 1539 which has 50 pockets or the CLC 1132 which has 75 pockets.
Besides being designed for Carpenters, the CLC 1134 is used heavily by:
- HVAC techs
- Wind Turbine techs
- Telecom techs
- Network techs
- Satellite techs
- Stadium Lighting techs
- Fire Sprinkler fitters
- IT techs
- Optical Fiber techs
- Wheel Chair / Mobility Device Repair techs
- Industrial Electricians
- Appliance Repair techs
- General Maintenance tecks
One of the great things about this pack is that the tools you use are clearly visible, so you don’t have to fumble through you backpack to try and find the tool you need right at that moment. It also is made of heavy duty materials to it can take a beating and keep on performing, which in this case means, NOT dropping your tools, or the zipper breaking, or straps coming loose…etc.
A picture is worth a thousands words…
Do you want to see this bag live? Well, we can’t take the bag to you via teleportation, but we can show you a video which is almost as good and if a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth 10,000 words! Have a look below:
As you can see, this bag is rugged (lots of double stitching and reinforced stress points), has the perfect amount of pockets for most techs and best of all it is currently (on sale) the lowest price of all the tool backpack, tool organizers.
I know I sound more like a commercial than a review and I honestly don’t mean to sound so gleeful, but if you’ve ever carried around a gym bag full of tools, or worse, a tool box to do your repairs, maintenance or other work that requires tools, you would be gleeful too. I mean just because you CAN carry around a box or gym bag, duffle bag…ha hahha or any other kind of bag of tools, doesn’t mean you SHOULD.
Take my advice, do yourself a favor and pick up this bag or one like it and call it a day. You won’t regret it for even a second.
(P.S., if you’re a wife, brother, friend…etc., it’s a GREAT gift.)
