Got the bag yesterday...loading er up today before turkey time. Tools, turkey and football today...I'm happier than a tick on a three legged dog. Gotta break out my love song to my sweetheart again for this awesome gift....ie If Tom T Hall was an appliantologist:

I love
Washers on the blink
Disposals in the sink
Fridges with all the frills
And drills

I love
Meters made by Fluke
Small flashlights , oh how cute!
Wrenches made by Sears
And gears
And I love you toooooooo. Thanks cutie!

but ...but...I still gotta feed my tool addiction....I love the bag, it's fabutabulous.. but I gotta have more.....give me more..I want....I want... I need.....THE DOCTOR!.......


feed me Seymore! It's so tool-y, I'm gonna die!

I've been looking at the veto-pro too, but I'm locked in indecision. I tend to carry way too much weight in my bag, so Im not sure what size I want. A smart move would be to pick a more moderate size and keep the load more manageable, but a realist would just get the bigger one and load her up. Plus, there is the choice between open and closed designs, so there is much to think about. At these prices, one must choose wisely.

I tried the open design and I'm still finding tools that fell out of it and into previously uncharted regions of my truck. I definitely need a closed design. Lately, I have been carrying a lot of tools. Many times I carry two tool boxes just so I wouldn't have to go back to the truck. Weight doesn't bother me (we move 'figeraders for goodness sake!) but I thought I could downsize and only carry one. The LC model isn't designed to carry many large items, particularly large screw or bit boxes . The LX model isn't designed for that neither. So, I spent the night figurin' how to carry my tools. Then, right before the L-tryptophan kicked in, I decided to use the veto to carry hand tools and the harbor freight case to carry corded light, bit boxes, steamer, gloves, messy silicone, oil, cloths, a few generic replacement parts etc. Until one of you guys loan me the $479 needed to buy The Doctor, I think I'll be quite happy. Now bring on the repairs!

ps: I will gladly pay you $480 next Thanksgiving for a $479 loan today.

Just ordered the Tech-LC bag tonight. I have been looking at different bags for a while now. It finally came down to Veto or the Backpack that the Samurai uses. I really like that also.

I have the Tech-LC and I love it. My tools have never been more organized. At first I was thinking I should have got the XL, but the Tech-LC I think is better for what we do. It carries the essentials, but forces me to be somewhat reasonable about what I bring into every job.. cripes it gets heavy quick. I would probably be in the hospital with a slipped disc if I had the XL.

I have had many different tool boxes and bags.Because I am mostly hvac I have a need for some different tools but I do have a Veto LC and it is a good bag.Easy to keep things organized but for me the CLC # 1526 is an ideal tool bag for many jobs.They also make a 1528 thats a little bigger.Most of the appliance guys around here use a husky open type carrier.I will admit I am a tool bag/box collector and I haven't ever found the perfect one ,just spent a lot of money.But thats what we do!The Samurai has a pretty neat bag, might try one of those.

I can't handle an open bag. I tried. My truck has worm holes in every corner that sucks tools in and transports them to God knows where.. Although the diagnostic bag for the veto is open, I use specific tools that wedge themselves in place. Even if it tips over, there are only a few tools in it.

The Samurai is a hiker and loves to backpack so it makes sense he has a backpack toolbag...he's also use to wearing a large sword on his back and sometimes has to walk long distances to get to customers houses. For the life of me I don't know why he doesn't get a horse. Now, me...well I'm used to carrying heavy things with a shoulder strap. Everytime we go shopping, my wife somehow tricks me into carrying her massive pocketbook while she's trying on clothes. I swear she has more things in it than Doctor Who's tardis. Hadn't had much time to look in it since I'm usually ducking my friends and those men who may all of a sudden want to be my "friend." And too many zippers and hidden compartments for me. I like to be able to quickly look at my bag and tell if the customer's little thieving tomato-head toddler has gotten hold of my knipex pliers and snapon driver before he tries to swallow one and stick the other in an electrical outlet. So ....whatever works best for one's particular style is the best bag.

Went back and forth many times between my big open (cheap) Husky contractors bag and the large Platt with the extra pallets.  The Platt was nice, plenty of pockets and room for everything, including iPad, door tags, mini manauls and so forth.  But it got heavy, no matter how many times I consolidated.  Now that I'm running very little calls in a much smaller area than I'm used to, I've gone back to the open contractors bag, lots of pockets and most tools and meters exposed, everything easy to feel for and grab.  Plus the old guy customers ohh and ahh over all the pretty, exposed tools.  It's all for the show, baby.  All for the show.
