|About The Specification of The Bosch Tool Bag|
The contractor bag comes as part of the Bosch 18V combo kit. When you first take a look at this bag, you will notice it has pockets on the outside. This is a nice feature as it allows the user easy access to the hand tools that are often used. On the front of the bag, there is a pull handle. We have all had this happen when we throw something in the truck, you take off to the next jobsite and now your tools are in the front of the truck bed because someone pulled out in front of you and you had to brake quickly causing the tools to slide forward. Well one nice feature of this bag is the pull hand in the front. All it does is allow the user to grab the front of the tool bag in order to help maneuver the bag more easily. The bag is made from nylon, so one thing we would recommend is buying some 3M Scotch Guard that has a water repellent feature and spray your bag.
There is not a lot to test for a tool bag expect for a couple small items such as weight capacity and usability. Now as we do with all our bags is take 2-50lb. salt bags and toss them in the bag. We did the same test with the Bosch bag. Now the odds of putting that much weight in a contractor bag is rare, it is nice to know that it will handle this with no problems. We put the bags in the Bosch bag, it was a tight fit. When we lifted the tool bag up, there were no problems. Nothing tore and didn’t hear any stitching popping out.The usability of the bag is one to take a closer look. As noted the pockets on the outside of the bag are great. The pockets are nice and tight, so you don’t have to worry about any of your tools falling out and getting lost. They seem to hold the tool, even skinny pliers, very tight. The bag as a whole is big enough to carry a lot of tools, even if it isn’t the Bosch combo kit. You can carry what ever tools you need for the day in this bag and have room left over.
The tool bag is very nice and offers lots of storage. The bag is made of nylon, so it does offer some water resistance and is durable. The bag is big enough to carry the Bosch 18V combo kit, plus some other tools needed for the job. We do wish it had a shoulder strap as it does make transporting easier.
