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!

    Strongly constructed bag.
    Strongly constructed bag. This tool bag is sturdy and well made, however, I noticed a few things I disliked from the beginning. The outer bit holder pockets are so tight one can hardly pull a driver/bit out without needle nose pliers yet they are not deep enough to hold a bit/driver/pencil/marker, etc, etc. of any length without it snagging and falling out when shouldering the bad around the job site. The zipperred pockets have a similarly limited capacity as well. Any one who has a lot of drill bits and small items will certainly need a parts bag as these zipper pockets are essentially useless for frequently needed items. If the interior were a hi-viz color in the bottom of the bag and in any compartments it would be easier to find tools. Despite the price and the loose threads I’ve on the bag, overall all it’s pretty good. The shoulder strap is the best I’ve seen on any tool bag and the overall functionality of the bag is good too.

    Have owned and used the bag for over a year. Having been in and out from behind the back seat of the truck hundreds of times in the past year the bag looks as good today as it did in it’s first week of use.

    Because of the organizational capacity of the bag I have realized time savings on jobs – more than I anticipated.

    I’m a master plumber with 20+ years experience and would highly recommend this bag to any plumber.

    This is my third Veto bag.
    This is my third Veto bag. Bought the first XL bag as soon as I saw it. Wore out the handle and the zippers and bought a second one. Wore out the handle and the zippers and thought, “You know? you’re getting old. How about something smaller? (and lighter). Tried 4 different bags from other manufacturers and finally came back and bought this OT-XL. Down-sizing ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. I like this bag and expect it to perform like its two older siblings, but I miss the accessibility of the original XL. With the staggered rows in the larger bag, finding things is a wee bit quicker. And it carries more. And it’s heavier. I recommend either of these bags, but suggest careful consideration of the shape of the bags for best fit for your work and the number of tools you find necessary to carry in your “must-have-always” kit.

    I’ve bought a lot of tool
    I’ve bought a lot of tool bags over the years looking for the perfect bag, the OT-XL is pretty close. I carry a lot of hand tools in my job- wrenches, testers, etc. I install packaging machinery. The OT-XL is big enough that I don’t have to make trips back to the truck for additional tools. In conjunction with the TB3 I have most of my based covered. The carry handle is comfortable and makes carrying a heavy bag easy. The construction is first rate and the little attentions to details such as Velcro to secure the shoulder strap so it’s out of the way when not used is great. The only change I would make is put a little slack in the inner side pockets, they are too tight and you can’t load a tool in unless it’s a flat scrapper or file.

    Keep up the innovations and yhe good work.

    I went to this bag because the bag I have needed to be replaced often. My old bag always got holes worn in to bottom. I lost tools and always had issues with number of pockets and pocket size. I really like my new bag allot. Everything is organized and in view. Very happy customer.

    This bag is very well built.
    This bag is very well built. I have to carry a lot of tools and this bag has the room, and toughness needed. I have used many other brands of tool bags and boxes, and none compare. This is my second bag and now I use both.
    The other bag was given to me from another tradesman and I have had it 3yrs. Best bag in the industry!!

    I had my eye on this bag for over a year. When my local plumbing supply store had it on the shelf one day I picked it up. I do residential service plumbing and this is my main tool bag for my most common hand tools. A very heavy, but extremely well built bag. The fact that it is so heavy (10lbs empty) encourages me to keep it clean and organized. The shoulder strap is also very comfortable and bears the weight well. I’m very pleased. By far the most expensive tool bag on the market but you get what you pay for in quality. Thank you!

    I purchased the OT-XL after
    I purchased the OT-XL after looking around for a while at various tool bags that were available at a variety of retail stores. The problem that I was finding with my current bags and all the bags that I looked at in stores were that the pockets were not designed well for holding a variety of tools. They were often to shallow or loose and would not store tools well for ease of selection. The OT-XL addressed this well, I find that I can store a wide range of tools from screw drivers, pliers, shifters to files and chisels without having to have a big pile at the bottom of the bag to sort through to find things. I find that it also allows me to carry a small drill and charger as well as gloves and various things all without compromising the access to my tools. The only criticism that I have of this bag is that the few zip pockets that is has are quiet tight and there aren’t very many of them. I have found that I have a few items that I cant really fit anywhere that came out of big zip pockets on previous bags.
    All in all a great bag and I guess you get what you pay for.

    Having owned the Veto-Pac OT
    Having owned the Veto-Pac OT-XL for several years, I am a great fan. My bag was recently stolen and I immediately purchased another OT-XL. You can’t beat the vertical storage and organization. Veto even improved on the pockets by adding expansion gussets increasing the storage capacity even more. I put my last bag through extreme, heavy use and it never wore down. Save your money on those cheap bog box bags and invest in an OT-Xl

    One tough bag period! Small
    One tough bag period! Small enough to be portable, but big enough to hold all of the tools you need. I’m very glad I bought this bag.

    I’ve run my company out of a Veto Pro Pac OT-XL for four years now. I’ve replaced almost every tool EXCEPT the bag. This thing just keeps going. Name the job and I’ve used my OT-XL to get it done. The only thing I wish it had were slightly more room in the zipper pouches for UNIbits and such. After 4 years, I’ve managed to only break one zipper pull and trust me when I say that I have not been easy on it.

    Many thanks to a company with it’s customer needs in mind!

    I bought this bag at my local supply house. I was skeptical at first, due to the price. But, as I was thinking more and more about how many bags I go through in a years time. I spent at least half the cost of this bag in a year. So, I bit the bullet and bought one. And I must say, I am very impressed with the ruggedness and quality that this bag has and, it holds all of my tools. Great job constructing this bag for the everyday technician and field workers! Love it!

    Have owned this bag 4+ years. Absolutely the best made tool bag I’ve owned in 20+ years and the only bag that has lasted over 2 years, let alone, almost 5. Highly recommend for serious pros

    Only had this bag for a month
    Only had this bag for a month but so far I’m loving it! Over here in England I used a Stanley FatMax box for years buy they kept getting damaged and it was also too difficult locate tools without moving others. This OT-XL let’s me store all my electrical tools in areas where I can easily just reach in and pick one item at a time up. Even though it’s built in China it has an amazing quality feel to the build of this bag. The only down side I’ve seen so far is the price! But you’ll soon understand once you have one. This is a top quality tool bag for top quality tradesmen. As a side note I did have to UNFOLLOW Veto Pro Pac on social media sites due to them advertising these bags with guns in and a quote saying “always room for 1 more tool” straight away I thought “Guns destroy things and tools fix things” happy building guys you won’t be sorry.

    I’ve had my OT-XL for about 6 years now. This bag is worth every penny. My bag carries all of my essential tools that I need on a daily basis. The bottom zip pouches have started to rip a little, but the rest of the bag is in great shape.
