Hey JW: Isn't that a standard 5 Gallon bucket tote ? I thought you were talking about something a lot smaller, just for diagnostic essentials.

I am considering the Veto Pro Pac XLT so I can carry my laptop with my me. My concern is whether the neoprene pockets will hold up without getting stretched out. Does anyone have one with the neoprene? Any input?

Thanks!

I used an aluminum case for years and really liked it. As you get a feel for what tools you want to carry, there are some cases with more pallets and pockets. I seemed to wear out the handles. That shoulder strap will be nice.

There's a few guys I work with that use this bag:

http://www.kleintools.com/catalog/tradesman-pro-organizers/tradesman-pro-organizer-backpack

I've seen people have issues with the CLC and Craftsman backpacks, but I'm inclined to buy this guy unless I find a good recommendation for another bag. I know about the Pro Pac but it's way expensive. I'm looking particularly for a backpack because we typically carry parts to install and go to high rises and the such.

Any other suggestions of should I just go with the Klein bag?

I use a back pack style tool bag both hands free to carry parts and 1 arm isn't an inch longer at the end of the day
