Husky makes some of the most innovative and attractive tool bags out. Every time I see a new bag my first thought is this it’s well thought out and then I see another one. I have owned about 5 Huskey tote/tool bags this one may be the biggest yet! It’s not as sexy as some of the other ones I have owned but it is roomy and comes with a tool organizer. That could have been helpful when I was a technician! Introducing the Husky 19in. Pro Hybrid Tote with Tool Organizer, Not only can you load it down with stuff, but it’s the bag you want at the end of the day and you need to clean up your tools. I was pretty good for making a mess in my tool bag during the week, then spending a few hours on the weekend organizing things for the upcoming week. I do not miss those days at all. Let’s take a look at this tool tote and some additional other items I have I received.
This is one tote that could be used across the board the various trades. Not only is it a heavy duty but it has a lot of room to pack all kinds of stuff in it. It also comes with a tool organizer. Picture having this huge bag loaded with stuff and you don’t want to lug it around, the organizer is then a great grab and go option. The tote is made of heavy-duty 1680D fabric with full reinforced edges for durability and 5 heavy-duty feet protect the base. The edges are reinforced to offer protection against wear.
On the outside of the tote, there are 6 storage pockets and an easy to access measuring tape clip. Inside the tote, there are 18 pocket and a lot of space. Just one thing to keep in mind, there no straps included so weighing this down too much is something to consider. The tote is also open with nowhere to store things you may not like everyone to see. The organizer could solve this issue if you keep the two together the majority of the time.
Maybe the most significant thing about this tote, at first I thought it was a laptop case until I opened it. Working on a construction site for over ten years, there were a lot of other trades involved. Initially, you would expect everyone on a job site to be respectful of other belongings; the reality is that was not the case. I have had things taken from me while using and left it for a split second. In most case, people would not risk going through a close tool bag. However, if your bag is open and exposing what you have, then it is possible that someone could walk by grab and keep walking. I know I kind of went away from the point, but it’s something to keep in mind. Just a past experience. The organizer if the perfect place to have a few things and organize your most used tools. This is a great addition to the tool tote.
This tote comes in at a very competitive price at only $59.99 you can find these over at the Home Depot site.
It’s really hard to find a comfortable need pad. Some have multiple straps and like this one “Soft Cap Gel Knee Pads” from Husky, some have a single strap. There are a couple of things I like about this one other than its cool design. They are soft gel knee pad, this allows you to be on your knees for an extended time. I really like the single strap that wraps around the back of the knee, with the ones I have had in the past the strap got really annoying after a while. The strap uses the hook and loop design to secure and remove the pad. The material feels tough, its make from nylon and design to take an impact. Look forward to seeing how this holds up over time.
Husky 2.875 in. Steel Straight Edge Clip Point Folding Knife
I am not the biggest knife fan, but I have to admit this Wood handle sporting knife from Husky is a great looking knife. I am looking for a reason to carry it with me. The knife blade is just over 2.8in. long, when it folded it measures at 4.5in. If you are into metal specs the knife has a 7Cr17 Stainless-steel blade. This blade is designed to be tough and holds a good cutting edge. No matter if you are right-handed or left-handed you can use the thumb studs to open the know with one hand. As long as you don’t lose it, this knife comes with lifetime Warranty with no questions, no receipt required.
This Milwaukee 550-Lumen LED Rechargeable Pivoting Flood Light is a great and handy light to have. If you happen to like lights, then you will enjoy this one. No battery to replace due to its built-in rechargeable battery. With the press of the power button, you can cycle through three light output modes 550 lumens, 250 lumens to 100 lumens. Depending out the output setting you can enjoy 2.5 hours at maximum brightness, 4.5 hours in medium and 11.5 hours in low power output mode. It is resistant to dust and water with an IP54 rating. The light has a magnet in the base which is very strong, simply stick it to a metal surface and you have a nice flood light. This will work out great on a bandsaw that doesn’t have a light. The light head rotates so you can position the light to your work surface.
Last but not least the Milwaukee 100ft chalk line. I didn’t even think chalk lines come this large. I see so many uses for this in the near future from some of my shop projects to some of the outdoor projects. Not only does the chalk reel has a big body but it has a planetary gear system, for the longest life spans. You can stretch the line out to its maximum length and with a 4 to 1 ratio you will have the line retracted back in no time. The metal handle not only retract but it can also lock the line.
