I have the Veto and it IS excellent.
The zippers work smoothly
It's rugged
There's lots of holders to keep stuff organized.

The only downside is that it can hold SO MUCH stuff that the bag gets real heavy.

WOW they're expensive. I'm way too cheap for something like that. When I was making my living as a machinist I used only top of the line tools, so I understand if something like this was used in a trade.
I'm currently a Harbor Freight type shopper.

I can easily justify the high initial cost of a bag like that---If it does what you need without fail for many years--it will be the cheapest in the long run---

A service man needs to have his tools organized--protected--and easy to get---if that bag does all those things--(and it looks like it will) then the high initial cost will be paid back quickly.

Your tools are your efficiency--your unpaid helpers--your pay check---investing in that efficiency is always money well spent.-----Mike---

You don't need a bag like that.

Not to carry a hammer, and a BIGGER hammer. LOL...


I don't have one, but I have heard a lot of good things about them.

I was running through a cheap bag about every year (side pockets would wear out and I would drop tools).

I've had my Veto for 3 or 4 years now and it is in excellent condition. I have a small closed top bag. Cost me about $100 ($112 with shipping). So, compared to the $40 cheapies, I have broke even and now I'm reaping the savings.

I got the closed top because I get caught in the rain/wet weather too often and the tools were getting wet. This way I can close them up inside. Been thinking about getting an open top for the sunny days because I really like an open top bag but would have to duplicate my tool set.

I just noticed all the open top units are out of stock. I wonder if they a ceasing to make the open top bags.

I met one other guy with a Veto. He had quite similar feelings about that bag as I do; it's worth the money.
