My husband looked at every single tool organizing bag on the market before he chose this one. He is OVER THE MOON about this one. He just won’t stop smiling! He’s going to keep this in his truck so he doesn’t have to re-pack tools every time he has to go somewhere to work on something at our daughter’s house. I guess it’s the same as me carrying a little bag of makeup in my handbag…Anyway, this is a wonderful value and it came before they said it would. We are both very pleased! Thank you!
Pros: The inside of the bag is solidly built. the pockets and bays are still in good working order after 2 years of daily use.Cons:1.The shoulder strap is less than solid. It constantly fails to stay at the height i set it to. It slips to the bottom position whether or not there’s weight applied to it. it just slowly slides down merely while holding it aloft in the air.2. The zippers on the bag fell apart within the first year. I can only use 1 of the 2 zippers each pocket has to offer and i can only close either of them a bit over half way.Wishes:1. Klein, make a a better shoulder strap that stays in positioned height2. build in better quality zipper railsHope it helps
Bought it for my husband, and he loves it!He is a huge fan of the Klein brand, and is an electrical maintenance tech, so this is perfect to carry his work computer and gear in.I haven’t used it myself, but just from handling it I can tell that the material is thick and it is overall very well made.
I bought this bag to replace the one I have that is falling apart. Biggest issue I have is it’s really hard to balance the bag. Once you have all your stuff in, the base of it does not hold it up due to it having the medium zipper pocket on one side. If you put stuff in there it wants to lean and fall over. Other than that the only other issue I have so far is the stiffness. It’s hard to open and look inside. I’m sure that will slowly go away as I use it.

I do low-voltage (network) installs, with the occasional auto electronics install. I was stacking my cheap tool wallet to its absolute limits, and needed something larger and more robust. This bag definitely fits the bill. It is well-made, with thick material. The pockets are tight and hold objects securely. The long, thin top pocket is perfect for holding zip ties and a few pair of nitrile gloves. However, I am having to double stack many of the pockets, as there simply are not enough of them. That is my only beef with this product. The shoulder strap has a gel pad that is extremely comfortable. As another reviewer mentioned, balance can be an issue, but I usually carry the bag in my hand, without the shoulder strap, and it is very manageable. Overall, a fantastic bag that will last a lifetime!

I really really like this bag. I use it as my briefcase 7 days a week. I am a super busy superintendent for a certified general contractor. Admittedly I wanted something that says “contractor” when I show up. I also need something rugged. This bag does all that and more. I use a Panasonic toughbook which fits perfectly in the laptop slot, padding appreciated but not needed. My portable scanner sits neatly in the bottom of the bag. Pouches inside hold power cords, spare laptop battery and checkbook. Every other compartment is just what I needed. Very comfortable shoulder strap that has fantastic grip on the pad to stay on your shoulder. If you need a durable bag that makes it clear you are in the trades this bag will do it.

The tech bag is a good product. It’s solidly built and gets the job done. Unfortunately, it has some drawbacks and flaws that hold it back from fully meeting its potential.The first concern I have is with the zippers. The rails seem fine, but the handles are attached to the glider oddly. The hoop isn’t large enough to rotate properly unless the handle is in the perfect orientation, so it’s often hard to just grab the zipper and go. This is a weird issue I’ve never had on anything else.The second problem I have is that the bag is front-heavy. If I remove my laptop, the bag often falls over. It doesn’t help that I have such a light laptop. This is with a moderate load of tools throughout the various pockets. The feet on the bottom of the bag could have been designed to better handle different weight distributions, particularly by strengthening the one towards the front of the bag.Other than those two issues, I find the inner-most pockets to be somewhat useless if you intend to put anything in the compartment they’re in. My iFixIt kit sits inside, making two of the pockets unreachable. This isn’t really that big of a deal, but it looks odd. The only solutions would be to either remove the pockets or make the bag wider, which both seem like they’d make the product worse.I can look past these problems because the bag is built well and seems like it will hold up for a long time. The front pocket is nice and my laptop is well protected. I can carry plenty of tools for IT and electrical work with a bit of thought into organizing. The interior of the bag also makes it easy to find what I’m looking for, as it is orange.Overall, I am happy with this bag. It could be improved, but it is far from not being worth it.

I use this bag every day. I work as a field engineer and I am in and out of the bag for tools all day. It will hold pretty much everything I need. I took a star off because it lasted 2 years and the main zipper came apart. I know 2 years is a good time for something you use every day but it seems such a waste since the rest of the bag is in flawless shape. I am sure I can re-sew the zipper but who has the time.
