By Ellen Cools
September 14, 2017 — Milwaukee Tool has expanded their storage solutions with the Ultimate Jobsite Backpack and Low-Profile Backpack.
The company says the Ultimate Jobsite Backpack is designed for tradesmen who carry a variety of hand tools, power tools and accessories, while the Low-Profile Backpack is designed for users who perform diagnostic or service work, and carry a tablet or laptop as well as tools.
The new backpacks are constructed with tear-resistant 1680D Ballistic Material and metal zippers for durability, and feature load-bearing harnesses with 2 times more padding, sternum straps that help distribute weight and vertical attachment straps to mount the backpacks on the handles of rolling bags and dollies.
The Ultimate Jobsite Backpack features 48 pockets, as well as Hardshell electronics and equipment pockets constructed of molded foam “to provide protection for tablets and other personal items.” Meanwhile, the Low-Profile Backpack features 22 pockets, a padded laptop pocket and a quick access front pocket to quickly reach items. Both backpacks also feature a puncture-resistant pocket that stores sharp tools without cutting the interior, the company says.
The new backpacks will be available in October 2017.
