Review – VETO PRO PAC TECH-MCT Tool Backpack
So you’re out in the field and you use tools. You could carry a toolbox (NOT), or a gym style bag (a lot of guys do) 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 Veto Pro Pac TECH MCT which was designed for HVAC techs, 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 Veto Pro Pac TECH MCT is the little brother of the Pro Pac Tech Pack…
This pack has 44 pockets of multiple sizes, more than enough to hold everything you use regularly. It has a super stable deck so you can stand up your pack and work from your pack without trying to get it to balance (you know you have done this!). It has two sides basically. One side for hand tools and one side for meters and the like. It has waterproof fabric (sounds trivial until your electronic testing equipment goes for a soak). . Everything about this pack is high quality.
Besides being designed for HVAC techs, the Veto Pro Pac MCT is also used by:
- 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
To be honest, I’ll have to say there is nothing extraordinary about this bag except it’s quality. I mean when you compare it to some of the others in it’s class, say the CLC 1134, the Klein 5542, or even it’s direct competitor, the DEWALT DGL573 lighted tool bag, it’s main stand out feature is it’s quality. When compared directly with the DEWALT, it has backpack straps, whereas this MCT does and yet are straps worth almost $120 more?? For me personally it is not.
A picture is worth a thousands words…
Do you want to see this bag live?
This is a very high quality pack and a lot of techs really like it, but when you talk to them and ask them why they like it over one of the competitors, quality is the only thing they really claim is why they bought it. So if quality is ULTRA important to you, well then maybe it’s worth it. However, for this guy, I’ll take the extra money, and by a CLC which is also very good quality (not as good as the Pro Pac MCT) and does the job just fine for me.
This pac is more for the tool bag collector who has everything… perfect gift for that guy!
