    I get the cult reference, I see guys on instagram posting pictures of the bags filled with cheap tools and bragging about how it’s the holy grail of toolbags.

    Yep, and then there’s the guys that are getting them for free, in exchange for posting them on there and then basically telling you that any else is just junk in comparison. I’m pretty sure they are made in China, like everything else.

    https://m.kmstools.com/milwaukee-48-pocket-ultimate-jobsite-backpack-138343. That’s the one I was looking at

    At that price, have you compared it to a VETO Pro Pac? Their awesome from everything I’ve read, but pricey. But they may have a type that would suite your needs better.

    I thought about the veto, the backpack version is more than double the price of the Milwaukee. I’ll see how the milwaukee holds up for now. I can’t really justify spending $450+ on a tool bag unfortunately

    Didn’t realize the unit was a backpack style and the comparible Veto would have been priced astronomically higher. Sorry bout that.

    What about this one from Milwaukee Kyle. The model number is not identical, but it may be more or less the same.

    Some guys on my jobsites would ruin my good tools, I leave most of those back in my workspace. Though it’s all about what one is most comfortable with, some cheap tools have a place.

    Seen a few guys with the Veto Pro when I do rigging, the bags seem alright. Think they are 2X the price of Bucket Boss bags which I prefer. Again it’s all what you’re comfortable with, organization does aid workflow.

    Looks like it will hold a lot and be easier to carry than a traditional bag.

    It will definitely make a difference when I have to haul everything up the stairs. Also a lot of the places I’m working at have areas that are only accessible by ladder entry so it helps with that as well.

    It seems pretty solid but we’ll see how it holds up for me

    It’s the weight that will kill a bag typically. Looks like you got a lot of heavy pieces you need to lug around.

    Saw some new bolt cutters on instagram. Two of the models have extendable arms for better leverage.

    It’s definitely a nice bag, but be really curious to see how it holds up to Kyle’s heavy weight and use. Mine’ll only see incidental use.

    I’ve got the bag loaded up pretty heavy for sure. It definitely helps having the weight evenly distributed though. I had a really hard time carrying around tools in my old bag with just a single shoulder strap. Today I walked up 8 floors with the bag fully loaded and it actually wasn’t too bad, definitely easier walking on flat ground though. I’ll have to try to take a few tools out to cut down on weight but so far the straps and zippers seem to be very solid. I don’t know exactly how much it weighs with all my tools inside but I’d estimate around 40-50 pounds. I’ll get a proper measurement on weight when I get back home and throw it on the scale.

    I like the idea about having extendable arms for more leverage. Nice idea.

    Do love my Milwaukee 18V Caulk Gun it’s saved me bundles of cash on expensive Marine Adhesives.

    How has the 18V caulk gun saved you bundles of cash on expensive marine adhesives?

    Probably due to the automatic stop/reversal feature. Definitely saves a lot of product when you don’t have anything oozing out the end.

    Yes the Milwaukee 18V Caulk Gun has an anti-drip reverse suction. When the adhesive cost over 15 Bucks a tube you don’t want half of it in a rag or paper towel.

    Saw that Milwaukee has announced they will be making their own saw blades. I will definately be giving them a try when they come out in April.
