Veto Pro Pac LX - Review

vpp_XL_hero.JPG

We recently reviewed (and gave exceptionally high marks to) Veto Pro Pac's LC and LC-OT tool bags. We liked them for their easy tool organization and their durable construction. At the time of the reviews we were pretty convinced that they were the greatest thing out there in tool transportation. Well, at the time, we hadn't yet put our hands on the LX which is a size larger than the other two. Well, now we can say that this one is the best tool bag ever. Really. It is.

We've been wailing on this thing for well over a month now and it hardly shows any wear. Better still, our tools have remained in their originally designated pouch. As we said in our review of the LC, the VPPs make it nearly impossible to be a slob with your tools.

The XL has 67 pockets of varying sizes. Some small for pencils and nail sets, some larger for pliers and nail pullers. It even has a few small zippered ones that are perfect for wire ties and our collection of koralath shims. In the big compartments there is enough space to tuck a hammer, our chisel pouch, and our file pouch and still close the zipper. Even loaded up with tools, the big handle makes the bag easy to carry and the shoulder strap is great too.

Size is the only real differentiator between this bag and the LC. The LX fits pretty much all of our day to day tools and still has a little room left over.

The XL costs close to $150 and we know that's a ton of money for a tool bag, but seriously, this thing is amazing. If you've been thinking about getting one, just go ahead and do it. You won't be disappointed. You'd have to be insane to be disappointed with this bag. It will change the way you work.

I'll vouch for the XL as well. Mine is about a year old and is still going strong. It has developed a few frays in the small pockets due to my carrying both my cats paw and wonder bar which both have sharp ends and don't really fit well in the bottoms of the side that I keep them on.
I really appreciate the tub bottom as I often put my bag down on wet ground. The carrying strap is a very comfortable way to carry it around, especially with all the tools I carry around in mine.
If I would change one thing, it would be the back row of pockets. I would rather have two larger back pockets on each side, rather than just the one, and I would increase the size of the smaller pockets even if it meant eliminating some, as a lot of my screwdrivers are ergonomic handled and don't fit in these pockets.
