If you know someone who has to haul around a lot of tools to, from and between jobs and jobsites, a backpack tool bag might make the perfect gift. We’ve got two options for you to take a look at.
First up is the Destroyer Tech Pack from Dead-On. This pack features 34 pockets and has a 50-pound capacity (though the company recommends for safety purposes you do not exceed 35 pounds).
Along with tools, this pack has a rear tech-compartment with three pockets and can hold up to a 17-inch laptop, tablet and files. The separate designated cellphone holders on the front and side come in handy.
The 19-pocket main tool compartment has a pocket large enough for a drill and smaller pockets for organizing drill bits. A front tool compartment has seven pockets and can hold screwdrivers up to 8 inches long.
Dead-On gave the pack breathable straps with a moisture-wicking lining. Other features include front anchors for clip-on carabiners.
The pack is $140 on Amazon.
If you don’t need space for a laptop and you’re looking for a bit more tool capacity, check out the Veto Pro Pac Tech-MCT Tool bag.
It’s slightly more expensive at $180 on Amazon, but from the looks of it, you get more pockets for tools and a slightly larger hard bottom structure that should provide a bit more stability for the pack when you put it on the ground.
