Review – Veto Pro Pac TECH PAC Service Technician 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 PAC 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 PAC is probably THE BEST Tech Pack on the market today…
This ground breaking pack has 56 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 waterproof fabric (sounds trivial until your electronic testing equipment goes for a soak). Has a pocket for manifold gauges and hoses. Everything about this pack is high quality.
Besides being designed for HVAC techs, the Veto Pro Pac TECH is used extensively 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
One of the great things about this pack is that it makes use of every square inch of space, for example, when you zip down the outer zip compartments, there is an attachment strap that allows you to use the partially opened flap as a tool table (you can see it demonstrated in the video below). It also has a nice aluminum hook at the top so if you need to hang it on a ladder or grate you can while you move up to another level or through a small opening where you couldn’t go through with your pack on and wouldn’t want to let go with even one hand. The comparable product for this pack is the CLC 1134 and while we have reviewed that pack already and it is really a great pack, this Veto Pro Pack Tech Pack is probably the only pack out there with higher quality.
A picture is worth a thousands words…
Do you want to see this bag live?
As you can see, this bag is sexy and rugged, has a pocket for all your testers, gauges, hand tools and even room for your ipad or laptop. This is the Ferrari of tool backpacks. High quality, great design, sexy good looks and very comfortable.
The bottom line with this pack when compared to others like the CLC 1134 or the Klein 5542 is the quality and the price that goes with it. If you want a pack that will last for 5 years guaranteed (it has a 5 year defect warranty that has a zero downtime guarantee – They ship you a loaner bag while they fix yours.) then this is the pack for you.
However, if your budget just can’t squeeze it out (we all know that feeling) then the CLC 1134 or the Klein 5542 is probably your go-to pack.
(P.S., As always if you’re a wife, brother, friend…etc., it’s a REALLY nice gift.)
