Anyone who has to carry tools around from place to place during the workday knows how important the right backpack is. Not only are they comfortable to carry, but they keep you organized so you have everything you need within easy reach. We looked at some of the best-selling products out there and put together this best tool backpack review to help you find the right one for you. Before we get started, let’s look at some key things to keep in mind.
Pockets: If you have a lot of tools, you need a lot of pockets. Some of these packs are designed to hold more than 50 tools while others give you room for other necessities, like a laptop or tablet.
Material: Most of these bags are made of polyester, though there are some made of nylon and even canvas, too. The material is important because they’re designed to carry a lot of tools which can be pretty heavy so you need something tough.
Color: Most of these bags come in standard colors like black or brown but only a few give you options to choose from. A few that are made by popular tool manufacturers like DeWalt and Milwaukee stick to the brands’ famous color schemes.
Rubber Base: A rubber base adds water resistance and durability to the bottom of the bag. That means you get a little extra support when you’re carrying it and you can put it down on damp or abrasive surfaces without damaging it.
Dimensions: Dimensions are particularly important if you’re going to be stashing this bag in a work truck or anywhere that space is somewhat limited. Plus, remember, the bigger the bag, the more it can hold.
Water Resistant: Most of these bags provide some water resistance so you don’t have to worry about a little bit of rain or splashing. Not that they’re not water resistant so you should still be cautious during heavy rain.
