The bag I had done the job, I never over loaded it but I found that my shoulder straps where starting to burst also the zips aren’t too great the often get stuck and break, I did improvise though with a frying pan!

Just recently got one of these. So far really great value for money. However I’m not sure if it will be my every day tool bag. I need a little more space.

This is a really good quality bag and will last forever if looked after. The problem is, I just don’t get on with it. I use it for jobs where I have to walk a lot, its great for that, but I can never pack it so my tools are easily accessible. I find myself pulling everything out every time, even the pull out section doesn’t help that much as it collapses in on itself when tools are inserted! The laptop section isn’t fully enclosed so be careful if that’s why you want this bag.

I bought one of these eight years ago and it is still going strong. It's been on and off my van, indoors and outdoor sites and generally chucked about. The lift out insert is flexible and strong, the pockets are rugged and (so far) tear proof. Great for slinging over a shoulder when carrying two toolboxes.

Superb product. I thought I’d give this bag a go as got sick of dragging around my service bag from house to house servicing boilers. I was a little apprehensive about buying this bag but I am well Impressed. It is very comfortable to wear, has great build quality and features, and is great value for money too. Would highly recommend and intact I am planing to by a second one for my installation tools!

This is the best sto rage item I ever decided to purchase. So many pockets and pouches with an unlimited way to arrange your tools. As a plumbing, heating and gas engineer. I need alot of different tools to hand at any one time. So this is the ideal solution to tool storage without tipping a hard box all over the floor to find that one tool you need. Very hard wearing and a good price.

this is a good tool bag, but could do better, the tool pockets could be a better range of sizes to fit tools, I find that tools do not stay in position for long and you end up with a pile of tools in the bottom, I like the weight and the shape, adjustable pockets will make this a great tool bag

Great bag for the price. Plenty of room to fit tools for servicing and repairs of boilers and heating systems. Lots of pockets to fit screw drivers and spanners.

Love this bag. Fits in plenty of tools with a good amount of pockets. Straps are chunky as well as the zips. Good waterproof base to keep the bottom dry.

Handy bag for small jobs or transporting small tools, i like the pull out insert,alot of pockets, could do with pull cord on the top of the side pockets to tighten up on tools in them to prevent losing / falling out. I found the zip poor quality and lasted five minutes.

Pretty expensive for what it is, the idea is much better than using it in reality. Can only store a handful of tools/a few other bits and pieces.

Purcahrdc ghis from Screwfix however once it was loaded with a few tools I noticed the stitching was coming away took it back and Screwfix replaced it with no issues however the second one the zip went within 3 weeks again replaced no issues only for 6 months on the stitching to come away again. Wouldn't class it as a hardwesring day to day toolbag. Disappointed

I've been using this bag for about a week now, I've used Stanley tote bags for years now and was sick of people boring tools and just piling them back in. So far I love this, everything has its place and if it doesn't go in it's rightful place it won't shut. It is a bit limited in size but I get everything I need including a small cordless drill and stops you putting all random bits of rubbish that always seem to accumulate in larger bags. So far so good!

Hi guys, it's Matt here from Tools2trust. I actually bought a Stanley backpack for my work on a building site in Hayes. I was on this site for 4 months and found within that short space of time the actual strap had snapped ! My tools aren't that heavy but for some reason it had given away. Therefore I feel it's quite poorly constructed and not worth buying. Maybe the other version is better ! Or I may bust open the piggyback and try a veto pro pac....we will see !

17th November 2016

Well where to start. The bag showed lots of promise, bought the bag to house a small selection of servicing tools (screwdrivers etc) as i was getting tired of taking out tools i needed from my main tool box. Loaded a few tools in, put it in the van, took it out and the bottom plastic has cracked and pulled the stitching out of the material. Absolute waste of time. An aldi bag for life priced at £0.15p would of lasted longer!!

I got one from my misses for a birthday present and I thought, sweet a mini belt Sander.... god was I wrong. This thing was crap. The belt kept on falling off every time I put it on some wood, and it was after I had adjusted the belt etc.... so it wasn’t operator error. The on way to stop the belt slipping is seems to apply some pressure but too much pressure it applied, stops the belt. Unless they’ve updated newer models (mines about 5 years old and I’ve used it twice) I would not recommend it.

This is the first time I’ve used Zinsser paint and only used it because of the radio advert I heard. Done a bit of research and needed to cover a outdoor fence and gate. I had to use 2 coats to cover the fence and used 2 tins in total. I think ideally I should have used primer on the wood and maybe 1 coat would have done. This paint seems to have an additive to make it thicker and it does run if you load your brush. I would use the paint again but maybe primer first and then I think 1 coat would do.

Before I became a handyman, I worked in the offshore industry building tools for offshore and we used a range of bahco tools from files to spanner to hex keys set. I’ve for a hex key set of my own and even though it’s £17.49 for it, the hex keys seem to be a better fit and I love it as it has a button to raise the keys from being flush. I know a few other sets do this, but this seems to do it better and feels better quality.
