Hey guys and gals! This post is going to be a special one and it consist of a wonderful gift idea for Father’s Day, especially if you have a dad in your life that is a do it yourselfer and has tons of tools he like or needs to transport. My father is a huge do it yourselfer and does literally everything himself when it comes to home repair and woodworking so naturally when it came to finding him the perfect Father’s Day gift this year we immediately decided to look for something to do with his passion of do it yourself projects. Once I discovered the incredible tool bags at Veto Pro Pac, I knew instantly that my dad would be thrilled to receive one of this for Father’s Day and when Jim was kind enough to send us one of their Closed Top LC tool bags for review and giveaway right here on The Cartoon Lovin’ Mama, I was beyond excited and couldn’t wait to give it to my dad!
About Veto Pro Pack (taken from website):
A tool bag should perform some basic functions: First, it should keep your tools where you can easily get to them. Secondly, it should protect them at the job site, on the way to the job site and everywhere in between. And finally, a tool bag should make carrying tools comfortable.
But first things first. Like anything that’s built to last, VETO PRO PAC tool bags start with a butt-kicking foundation. In this case, it’s a 3mm thick polypropylene base that is not only waterproof, but “drop from the second floor” proof. Next we oriented the storage system vertically using interior pockets made of PVC-impregnated 1800 denier, a waterproof nylon that can take whatever a flathead or Phillips head screwdriver can dish out.
While VETO PRO PAC tool bags could be considered “soft bags” they don’t wilt and lose their shape like canvas or other synthetic bags. That’s because every PRO PAC tool bag uses a patented integrated center panel that extends to the very bottom of the bag. This allows for easy access and balances your load distribution — effectively keeping you from becoming a regular at the chiropractor’s office. Speaking of pain, the place where your burly hand makes contact with the tool bag is typically where discomfort can put a damper on any quitting time. But we don’t do “typically” too well around here. The handle on VETO PRO PAC tool bags is unlike any you’ve experienced. It’s ergonomically designed for stiff hands and is hinged through the fabric for extra durability. It also collapses front or back depending on how you set it up. Bonus!
About the Closed Top LC Tool Bag (taken from website):
Where the XL is more of a generalist bag, the LC caters to the more job-specific crowd. Don't misunderstand, it still offers transport-plane-like storage with 57 pockets capable of handling 75 hand tools. If you're any kind of technician, you're going to love the bag's layout. It's perfect for all sorts of meters and butt-sets. Specs: 19" H X 13.5" L X 9.5"W (13" H with handle folded down)

As I mentioned above we were sent one of the Closed Top LC Tool Bags from Veto Pro Pack to review and give to my dad for Father’s Day! I was super surprised and happy with the speed of shipping for our tool bag, it arrived very quickly and was packaged very nicely so that the bag itself did not get damaged in any way.
Once our tool bag arrived, “Bug” and I immediately opened it up and gave it a complete once over and upon my inspection I was simply amazed at how durable this bag feels and the appearance of the bag is also very appealing if you ask me…I love it, it has a very masculine look! I also love all the pockets that will allow my dad to keep all of his most must have tools organized so that he will be able to easily find them and best of all it can hold up to 75 of those tools. I also really like the fact that the handle folds down for easy access to the tools while you are in the middle of a job.
After we had a little bit to check the bag out for ourselves and made me have second thoughts about giving it to my dad, not because I didn’t want dad to have it but because I myself do a lot of do it yourself projects and I fell in love with the bag!! But, I knew that my dad would love it so “Bug” and I took it to him that afternoon and just as I had expected my dad was really excited about his new tool bag. He has one, but it’s like 25 years old and doesn’t have all the pockets to organize his tools and to be honest it’s falling apart and has no strap left for dad to carry it comfortably.
Here is a picture of dad with his new tool bag, he was happy about the bag just not having to take the picture LOL!
After he sat down and started inspecting the bag it seemed like he got even that much more excited and he immediately went to transferring his must have tools from his old tool bag to the Closed Top LC Tool Bag. I have to say the both of us were simply amazed at how much this bag actually held, after putting all the contents of his other bag into the Closed Top LC, dad had even more room for other tools that he needs almost daily but didn’t have room for in his other bag!
Dad has been carrying the Closed Top LC for a couple of days now to and from his lawn mower shop and he said it has really made it easy for him to take the tools he needs to work and to bring them home where he uses them in his woodworking shop. Now he said he wont have to buy two of everything because he can keep all he needs in one simple and organized bag!
As if you didn’t know already the Closed Top LC is awesome!!! We love it and best of all dad loves it! I’m so glad we were able to find such an awesome gift for him this year and I have a feeling by the quality of this bag that it’s a gift that will continue to give for years to come!
If you or your dad is a do it yourselfer, the Closed Top LC Tool Bag is a must have for sure and score some brownie points this Father’s Day by giving your dad a gift that will keep on giving….the Closed Top LC…the possibilities of the tools that he will be able to carry around is endless and well…..best of all organized!
