    should I splash the cash and buy a veto? At the moment I ve got a Stanley large open tote bag. Which is fine but weighs a tonne. Also I only regularly use about a third of the tools that are in it. So my thinking is keep that in the van then get a smaller bag to carry in. Veto bags look great but pricey are they worth it and which one would you recommend ?

    Far to expensive, but if you are a Tool Tart then carry on and get one, you only live once Mate.

    I have a Veto Pro Pac XL. It's a great job. If weight of bag + tools is an issue, get something else. It's a heavy bag even before the tools go in it.

    Love mine and wouldn't go back to anything else, would recommend the Tech LC with a tool pouch (TP4B). Had both for a couple of years now and still no issues, was previously going through 1 x of the CK bags every 6 months!

    I m not much of a tool tart but I m up for anything that makes my work day easier. At the moment I tend to take my bag to one central location then wander back and forth .

    If the tool bag isn't failing and lasting a good time, I don't see how a Veto Pro Pac is going to change things. Could buy another of what you have and split the tools up, but as is often the case you'll end up bringing both into most jobs after getting fed up of running back to the van to get something from the other bag.

    I m thinking about one of the smaller bags, like the tp4b as a carry in bag. Or the pro pac mc. I probably only use half a dozen tools 90% of the time so I don't see the point of carrying the bulk of the other tools which are only occasional use, like a pry bar or large adjustable etc.

    Well I went for it and got the tp4b to start with. So far so good. Having a pouch that holds a lot of stuff but is light enough to move round with me has been a revaluation . I ve even had it up in a loft which I something I could of never done with my old tool box. Expensive yes, worth it ? Well yes I think so. It's a good quality bit of kit and will probably save me an hour a week . So should pay for itself.

    I bought one when I was traipsing across fields, up hills etc, also hauling it up a hoop ladder, it was the most comfortable way to carry c.30kg tools to site. Cracking piece of kit if you need or want something as that. If you don't need or want something so well designed or manufactured, ( and heavy), get something else. Probs wont last as long or be as comfortable.

    Really happy with my XL, keeps everything organised with handy pockets. Comfortable to carry even if it is a bit heavy. Wouldn’t go back to an open tote bag

    I have had the veto pro pac XL for about 6 months, no problems so far and it is certainly very well made and well thought out.

    I'm not sure if it is worth the crazy price if you are just looking for a good bag, however if you are looking to treat yourself then this will definitely put a smile on your face.

    I only use the rucksack type of tool bags.
    Not really been able to find a perfect (for me) tool bag.
    Tried a couple of CKs and a couple of Stanleys, one Makita (returned almost immediately) and a no name brand from Homebase that I use for drills and drivers.
    Zips wear out, stitching fails, lack of flaps over pockets, not enough pockets, too many slots for screwdrivers, bags start sagging, net pocket gets holes in it, shoulder straps are not adjustable (Makita), etc.
    Found the Stanley bags to be the best compromise.

    I have klein tool tote. Big enough to hold the basic things I need and really good quality. Also considerably cheaper than veto
