Tool Review – Husky 22″ Rolling Tool Bag

This Husky 22″ Rolling Tool Bag is a beast!  I was fortunate enough to have Husky send it to me to try out, and I’m really in love with it.  It’s a bit larger than I was anticipating, but the capacity it has to reduce several bags down to one is impressive.

I’ve used other brands of rolling tool bags in the past and have been impressed with most of them.  I’ve found however that pockets and pouches have always been an afterthought with other brands.  Most brands use their rolling bags as a sort of “catch-all” 

First Impression

This 22″ bag has so much storage that I was able to reduce my 3 bags I normally carry around into this one bag.  Plus when you pull the handle up it’s large enough to hold more bags on top of it if you also had a technician backpack or any other bags to carry.

The downside to this large of a bag is that it is extremely heavy when loaded up with tools.  Trying to pick it up and get it in and out of the truck is a pain in the ass, plus it is so bulky that it doesn’t fit well in the back seat of my Titan.  It goes just fine in the bed of the truck, but I don’t like storing tools back there because people steal things.

The Inside

As far as WHAT this bag can hold, I’d say it holds virtually everything you’d need it to.  I got my sawzall in it, as well as a 24oz hammer and pry bar, along with 2 drills, a charger, all of my hand tools, levels, tape measures, extra bags of bits, a set of T-handle allen wrenches, multimeters, flashlights, the list keeps going.  I actually didn’t have enough tools to fill the pouches without just stuffing random stuff in that I don’t use.

Oddly, but conveniently, there are 4 places to clip a tape-measure on this bag.  Two spots on the back exterior, and two spots on the inside of the bag.  There’s one large velcro pouch that could probably fit a laptop in it, or maybe some large channel locks.  There are 4 other medium small slot-type pouches along the inside walls of the bag.  There’s even two small pouches that can fit small terminating screwdrivers, pens, pencils, markers, or drill bits on the top flaps.

The Outside

The outside of this bag is packed with pouches.  There are side pockets designed to hold hand tools, flashlights, multimeters, or anything that you’d want to have quick access to.  The front pouches are great for sliding in any miscellaneous bits, pads of paper, hand tools, multimeters, etc.  Lastly there’s one large zippable pouch in the front center that is large enough to fit every color of electrical tape you’ve got in your truck.  Or you could use it to store wirenuts, screws, or even a laser level.

Summary

In summary this bag rocks if you have the space for it and don’t mind the weight.  It’s a little big for everyday use.  Once you start rolling it around though the weight disappears; it’s really only an issue when lifting.  There’s not much you can’t carry in this tote, the amount of storage room in it is outstanding.  I give this bag a 4.5 out of 5 stars.  There are small nylon straps on the inside that inhibit easy sliding in and out of hand tools into the pockets, that I would probably cut out to make it easier to use.  Other than the nylon straps and the massive size of this bag, it is incredibly well designed and the functionality and capacity of this rolling tote is on point.

The long inside flap pouch is a good place to keep your NEC code book. Keeps it away from tools and protected.

That’s not a bad idea! I downloaded the NEC 2017 app on my phone though, so I don’t have to lug the book around. I still keep one at the house and one in the truck though.
