Additional Information

VETO PRO PAC TOOL BAGS PRODUCT CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Keep the Zippers Clean & Lubricated

Over time, dirt and grit will “clog” the zipper coils preventing them from staying closed. To keep this from happening, clean and lubricate your zippers twice a year (more often if you work on a job site with a high amount of airborne debris). To clean the coils: Scrub them with soapy water; a tooth brush works very well. After scrubbing the coils, blow them out with an air hose to dislodge any other fine grit that didn’t dislodge with the brush. To lubricate the coils: Apply a silicone spray, beeswax or a zipper lubricant.

Protect the Zippers From Sharp Objects and/or Excessive Heat

Any sharp object or heat source is capable of permanently damaging the zippers. Once a zipper coil is cut or singed the zipper will not function and in most cases is not repairable. Most of the cut zipper coils we see are the result of sharp tools stored inside the bag with the sharp side facing up. Make sure to keep the sharp edges of your tools facing down in your bag and away from the zipper coils.

Don’t Overstuff the Bag

Overstuffing your tool bag will very likely cause significant stress on the zippers that is above and beyond what the bag was built for and will eventually cause the zipper(s) to separate. If you have to work hard to close your zipper(s), your tool bag is most likely overstuffed… proceed with caution!

    This is a perfect “just enough” bag. It’s holds exactly the tools I need. This is my second Veto and I’m sure it won’t be my last. Quality construction to handle the wear and tear of the job site. Cant wait to see what Veto come out with next!

    ***I wanted to update my previous review now that I have spent more time with my Veto bag! I made a comment in previous review I want to correct! I had uncomfort with bottom of bag comming into contact with my back, mainly because I had the straps tightened up so tight I could barely get the bag off myself:) I loosened up the straps and let the bag be lower on my back. Not a problem anymore, and I can get the bag off of me quick!

    I have only come to love this bag more and more each day I use it. The bag never falls over, zippers are superb quality, and incredibly strong material. Again, this is my 14th Veto bag and I have never had any damage occur to my bags and I beat them up. I even drove over my TP-XL with my Van by accident and you could barely tell!! It also protected my tools in that event. Specifically my expensive Bluetooth Refrigerant Probes. Veto saved me some money there!

    So I’m an HVAC tech and decided it was time to upgrade from my Tech-MCT bag that I’ve had for about 10 years now(which is still in pretty good shape). I love this bag!!! The versatility of it is amazing and it fit everything I had in the MCT with room to spare. I took out the large inserts that come with this bag because at the moment I like my tool layout the way I have it. Best part about this bag is if I want to change it and add those inserts back in for more tool storage, there’s still plenty of space for that. I’ve switched back and forth between using it as a backpack and carrying like a regular tool bag as I also purchased the 50” shoulder strap. The outside velcro pockets are deeper than I thought they would’ve been, and the padded meter pockets are wide enough to fit a Fluke F116 multimeter with leads next to it and the taller 324 clamp meter. Don’t let the price scare you, I’ve been using this bag for a week and can tell you it’s worth every dollar. Well done Veto!!!!

    Im an electrician and this is the best tool bag ive ever had! It holds all my tools with so much extra room i even add space to put a 12volt drill in the front pocket the sides are helpful to put in extra tools you dont use very often and the side mini pouches are good for my drill tap set and other drill bits! Worth every penny and I highly recommend it

    Awesome backpack. Exactly what I’ve been looking for. I’m an hvac tech and the bag holds all my service tools, meters and probes. It’s not as heavy as the other backpacks when fully loaded.

    About time the smaller backpack bag came out. Ordered mine as soon as it was released. It’s exactly what I’ve been needing. Being an HVAC/R technician. On a lot of roofs. The smaller backpack bag is perfect. I’ve got everything I need. And no where near as heavy as the full size backpack bag. The perfect tool bag period!!!!!

    I “upgraded” from the TP-XXL (fantastic bag) because of the backpack straps. For me it was easier to carry tools while also leaving my hands free for other items or tools boxes. This bag fits it all, I’m an electrician and carry just about everything I need as an every day carry bag. The customization with v-swap gives this bag so many options in what you carry, and how you carry it. I couldn’t recommend this bag enough for anyone in the trades looking for a backpack that carries it all, but isn’t huge.

    I purchased the MB5B to replace my “Over-the-Shoulder” TP-XXL. Very similar design between the two which was great because I wanted the keep the same tool layout, and go to the “Back-Pack” style of the MB5B.

    No complaints. I noticed sometimes if I don’t pay attention and swing the bag (which is fully loaded with tools) on my back really quickly, the base CAN hit my back (not always) . A little bit of discomfort, however I put some cloths in the back compartment to create a little more space back there and it hasn’t happened again.

    Would be nice if there were a stiffer thin pad right above all the way along the base on the back side to prevent the base from coming into contact with your back by creating some more space between you and the bag. Like I said, I corrected the issue by simply inserting some rags (which I need with me anyway) into the rear compartment typically used for Tablet storage.

    Just be aware, it has an awesome sturdy waterproof base, and don’t get into a rush when throwing it on your back fully loaded with tools! You definitely don’t have to baby the bag, but like me, you may have to baby yourself sometimes. Haha!
