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!

    Veto Pro Pack thankfully,
    Veto Pro Pack thankfully, does honor their no downtime, 5 year warranty without hassle. Unfortunately, I had to replace my XXL-F four times due to zipper issues. Hey Veto… better zippers would make this tool bag a 5 star! I’m a 30 year service tech and these tool bags are the best I’ve seen on the market so far.

    This bag was my answer for
    This bag was my answer for “how do i grab all the tools i need in a hurry?” i did a google search for best tool tote and veto pro pac was #1 on the un-sponsored list. after reviewing the details and reviews on amazon, i pulled the trigger.

    woodworker,electrician, plumber, carpenter, hvac tech & “the guy with tools” are the hats I wear mostly.
    on any given day, i am fixing a plumbing leak, making a custom dining table, or maybe even hanging chandeliers in a tree. our operation works between new jersey farm country and new york city so i need a tight, compact rig that can pack up in a moments notice.

    this bag has given me the confidence to pull away from my shop knowing that i can tackle any problem or emergency with my tools. this bag has not only expanded my arsenal but reduced the footprint in client homes for more walking/ working surface area during an installation. now, my helpers don’t need to bring their own bags, we bring one that serves all.

    finally a shoulder strap that HOLDS!!! first thing that always went on my old bags was the strap. the strap is such a key element of a tool bag especially in nyc when space is limited and time is of the essence.

    I have left this bag out over night in the pouring rain with my hand tools inside and everything was dry the next morning. that said, i’ve only had one time out of thirty where my tools did have a slight amount of moisture on them and thats because the bag was submersed partially.

    two things i would like to note is the safety glasses pouch. and the open pockets closest to the center.I found that my safety glasses are a bit larger for the pouch so i use the pouch for my headlamp and keep my safety glasses in a sunglasses case. as for the pockets, i first thought that my biggest tools should be in the back and smaller tools in the front, however i saw the larger tools putting added stress onto the zipper area and so i took my largest tools to the lower pockets.
    bought my bag on april 2012 and its now september 2013

    Great Bag. Holds almost everything and very organized.

    This bag has been great. Im
    This bag has been great. Im now buying my 2nd xxl-f. The first one has now reached its lifes end. The zippers are not really working on the front any more and the bag bulgest towards the side that has all the tools. Its hard to get into the exterior pockets because its bulging. Even the handle is curved towards the side with the tools. A lil plastic in the A frame portion of the bag would vastly increase life.

    That being said ill still give 5 stars. Whatever this bag lacked it was still the best bag ive had or seen. As an HVAC installer id have to do install work and service work. And the smaller bags didnt really carry enough for me. This bag was the one. It holds my 18v and 12v drill and all my hand tools.

    Like i said it did degrade but ive had it for about 6 years now. And im buying another because it was 6 years of hard use. And i had this thing loaded down with tools. Everyone who ever picked it up would complain. With both my drills in it fully loaded it came to 61 lbs. So the thick padded strap comes in very handy.

    Great bag. Its pricey but for me as long as it lasts for 5 years of daily hard abuse its good for me. I mean im setting it in the mud and sliding it around all over the place. I really abused this thing for years. So it definitely pays for itself. No question.

    Also keeps your work area neat. Everyone i work with has tools scattered everywhere and im constantly reaching for tools without even looking into the bag. And able to put it back without looking too.

    Anyway bottom line is dont let the price scare you away. AFter another 5-6 years ill probably be buying another one. (hopefully with slighlty better zippers maybe and a little plastic to rigidify the structure so the bag doesnt sag towards the tool side so much.) But if not ill still get another one. lol

    When I first started off as
    When I first started off as an electrician I would buy every tool I saw that would make my job easier. Unfortunately I had more tools than I could hold in my ‘nail bags’. Well one day browsing online I happen to come across these guys when they first started out and bought this bad from Chadstoolbox.com and I became instantly professional overnight. I have spots for every electrical tool, low volt tool, all my power tools including my charger, saw zaw, drill, three batteries, 3 cases of bits, crescent wrenches, channel locks, all my main hand snips, meters EVERYTHING! Every thing you could possible every need electrician-wise. It weighs a ton if your a girly-man but if your me its super minor especially with the shoulder strap. When I get to a job I have the bag all put together and have my tool-less ‘nail bags’ through the grabber part of the veto bag than stage the veto bag in a spot on the ob than pull out whatever tools i need and put those into my ‘nailbags’. The bag is basically a mobile toolbox is the best way to describe its use. But when I show up to a job with that thing and expose my vast array of tools to the owner or workers on the job site they pee their pants because they know I know what the hell im doin just by looking at that thing. In fact I’ve been hired to electrical companies just by showing them my bag. The second I showed them my bag and opened it up, the bossmans would beg me to work for them. Beg me! Haha. Well anyway my bag is about 6 years old now or whatever and I need a new one because my zippers are wack now, but i’m gonna get another one real soon. Unless veto wants to sponsor me a new one ;).

    Ok. Yes $225 for a bag holy
    Ok. Yes $225 for a bag holy sh*t. I will say if you buy one you will consider another. It is not water proof or anything, but this thing is built to last for the long haul. The zippers,the materials, the handle, the pockets all great- no superior to any others I had had seen or considered. This is for the serious at heart. I know a bucket works fine, but if you want some organization to your madness, this or consider any other of their bags. This particular one you can load the crap out of it. It will weigh a ton and 3/4 , but the thing does not flinch and handles it perfectly.

    I saw this bag in a local
    I saw this bag in a local hardware store thought it was a little spendy, went home looked online and nothing out there even compared to how well it would function for how I needed to use it. Now that I have it, it goes every where I do that is why I call it my favorite man purse. It has been well worth the money and I would by another one in a second if I ever needed to. Very well made the customer service is fantastic I have had mine for over 5 years and the shoulder strap just broke, and my bag is heavy. Made a phone call to Veto and they had a new strap to me in no time.

    Purchased this bag and it it
    Purchased this bag and it it great. The only reason not five stars is there are no pockets on the outside of the bag where you could put a couple of sharpies or pencils on the side. Grab the tape , grab the pad, grab the….what the….where is the pencil? Still a great bad and I like the velcro on the strap and not the clip like my Tech-XL.

    What can I say that isn’t
    What can I say that isn’t already in the description. The bag was threaded by the hairs of Chuck Norris’s beard. Its toughness can only be matched by a 2 ton hydrogen bomb and even then it will show little sign of wear. The structural integrity of this bag defies the laws of science.

    However for there to be Pros there has to be some Cons. I think Veto did a good job at having as few “cons” as possible and it really comes down to personal taste. Mine are…..

    -full the bag is heavy, for the size they could probably get away with adding some wheels and a drag handle. Its hard to navigate through door ways without hitting anything

    -it has a lot of pockets which is a plus but depending on which pockets you fill you won’t be able to use them all

    That’s about it! Personally I wanted a smaller tool bag but this was the only closed top model that had a big empty compartment for power tools (drill, grinder, reciprocating saw). Id like to see that option with smaller bags. Also it would be nice if you could customize the inside tool pockets. Maybe a beefy velcro with different pocket options. Over all I LOVE this bag. I cuddled it for the 1st week of owning it

    I’ve been using the XXL-F for
    I’ve been using the XXL-F for some years now after decades of being frustrated by other alternatives. It’s astonishing how much fits easily into this bag, and even more so because all of it remains easily accessible…no digging around to find something. Best of all, the bag is tough as heck, much tougher than solid material tool boxes…whether wood, metal or plastic. I suppose there could never be a tool bag that fit everyone’s needs perfectly, but I can’t imagine how the thing could be improved. Sadly, mine just got stolen and as much as losing tools I’ve acquired over the years hurt, losing the Veto was just as bad! I can’t go back to carrying tools around the old way because the Veto has spoiled me forever!

    There really is no way to
    There really is no way to find fault with the XXL-F. It’s ridiculously tough, beautifully laid-out for organizing all your tools so that they can all be seen and grabbed easily and has a low-profile that doesn’t tend to flip over in the bed of my truck the way tool “boxes” can. It’s even easy to carry with a full load, as opposed to square/rectangular hard boxes. It’s clear that this thing was designed by someone who’s been there/done that and best of all…made in the good old USA. I’m on my second one, not because my first wore out, but because it was stolen. Now…if Veto made tool belts…I’d be all over that!

    We bought this for my dad
    We bought this for my dad somewhere around 10 years ago. As a high end historical remodeler and now a commercial contractor these bags go through a lot. He has to tote it in and out every day. It’s loaded with around 150 lbs of tools, gadgets, odds/ends, and essentials. We jokingly call it his purse. He loves it and we are now working to get him the smaller bag he is lusting for. Worth every penny spent and more!

    I’m a gas engineer and this
    I’m a gas engineer and this bag is brilliant. I can have all my tools in one place. It’s nice and comfortable to carry even fully loaded. Great bag A+

    I was hesitant to buy this
    I was hesitant to buy this tool bag, because I thought it would be too big and too heavy to tote around. It filled up quickly, and now I’m wishing I hadn’t hesitated to buy it. All my things are in one place, and neatly stowed where I can grab them quickly. Originally, I had two smaller bags to carry everything, but all fits into this one. I keep it on my boat just in case something is needed on the water. Great tool-bag that I highly recommend.

  18. Plumberman

    I’m a plumber. I need a tool
    I’m a plumber. I need a tool bag that is tough and durable. This is it. I have it for a few weeks now and I wish I hadn’t wasted money on cheaper tool bags. I’ve been well pleased with this one. I’ve even had some customers comment on it on how heavy duty and well it’s made. Last bag I’ll have to buy. Keep up the good work and high quality of these tool bags.

    This bag is stupidly well
    This bag is stupidly well constructed! The internal pockets work well and it has been well thought out.

    I understand that it has been designed to be carried onto site, but I want a bigger one! I have one side stuffed with and tools, the other is split between meters, soldering kit and a few other pouches all vertically stacked then my longer tools lying horizontally. This all works great, but I need somewhere for a few cordless tools. If only this bag had a central section with zippable ‘lid’ I would need only one bag and not two!

    Best all around bag. One side
    Best all around bag. One side for hand tools, hole saws and extensions, protein bars. Other side fits a full size sawzall and a couple drill and impact bit boxes. Well made, with durable materials. Great to work out of with everything being clearly visible and organized.

    This tool bag is great. It holds all of the tools I use on a general basis and we’ll worth the money. My co-workers complain that it is heavy. Wimps. The only issue is when I shoulder carry the bag it sits a little long and I find it bumping into door jams and such, but that’s easily dealt with. Being way up north often I am working in the snow and damn, my tools aren’t soaking wet and rusted just sitting in the bag. I would say this is the best tool bag out there.

    This is now the 3rd tool bag
    This is now the 3rd tool bag I’ve had from veto pro Pac. The 1st is the laptop bag which was purchased second hand from eBay. I still own it, but replaced with the xxl-f and was glad I did. The xxl is a very long bag but it does allow me to organise my tools very well. The build quality is so good compared to other brands.

    I also purchased a smaller bag as a terminal bag and it’s now about 3 years old

    If you are thinking that the bags are expensive then think of it as a long term investment because these bags will out last any other bag by years.

    These bags should see me to my retirement and I’m only 53…

    The xxlf is hands down best
    The xxlf is hands down best bad I’ve ever owned! And the warranty is second to none. At 4 years at 10 months my zippers failed… Upon inspection veto decided to replace the bag. The whole process was like a week. They sent me a new loaner bag, and basically told me to keep it.

    The bag itself is great… But be cautious it will hold anything you can true at it… It gets heavy af! Only down sides if I must… The safety glasses pouch… Doesn’t hold any of the glasses I’ve tried to put in it… Great pocket for other parts tho. And the new tape strap (compared to the first xxlf model I had) is significantly shorter… Like annoying shorter. Veto, please fix this! And lastly if there had to be another improvement, make it a bit taller. I can’t stand up 12″ channellock pliers, and actually downsized to 10″ just so it fit in the bag. Oh, and wheels would be a definite welcome addition.

    All in all, if your looking for 1 bag to carry it all, this thing is a beast! I rate it a solid 4.5 out of 5
