Review for Stanley Fatmax Tool Backpack
Replies for Stanley Fatmax Tool Backpack
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.

I had this back pack, to be honest I didn’t get on with it, I actually gave it away to my mates apprentice, it’s not that it was terrible, just I am old school and prefer bags and toats.

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.

Decent little bag for a few tools that need to be carried around sites Center section comes out which makes it handy for tight spaces not a bad little tool bag over all

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.

Love my bag. Easy to handle. Plenty of space to put all the tools I need to hand. Had it 2 years and would definitely buy another. Starting to show wear now after 2 years but it's paid for itself.

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.

Very good bag. Only complaint is that my grips and shifters tend to fall out the removable middle pouch

Ok for light use once loaded with tools the middle section can be a pain to put tools back in. Now relegated to gather dust in my garage and using a ck magna case now.

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

Had my one now for 2 1/2 years, held up really well, great for servicing / repair tools, plenty of space for individual tools & decent value for money.

Good bag but could do with larger pockets for larger tools.
Still I use it everyday and would still recommend.

I use one of these every day and am not a massive fan but seeing as i am still using it I guess its not that bad!
It's main issue is everythign ends up getting thrown in the bottom and filling the bag up. Keep it clean and it great

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 !

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!!
