Dewalt are internationally renowned for their exceptional ranges of power tools, tool accessories and so much more.
Established in 1922 by Raymond DeWalt, the company has developed into an international powerhouse that have developed and maintained professional tools for the trade around the world.
Equally well established is the TOUGHSYSTEM and T-STAK storage systems.
However, in recent years, Dewalt have further developed a range of soft storage solutions. When we refer to soft storage, we mean backpack, tool bags, open totes….anything that doesn’t have solid sides.
As you would expect (and demand) from one of the worlds leading tool manufacturers, Dewalt’s range of tool bags not only provide efficient, durable design, but with some of their more recent products, have also delivered a high quality aesthetic product too.
I’ll be one of the first people to say that choosing a bag is quite a personal thing (I have never bought a bag for my wife, and don’t intend to in case ‘it’s the wrong kind/colour/size/brand’). Yet there are those who genuinely don’t have adequate storage for their tools, the respective accessories, as well as other bits.
We’ve seen them walking on to the train, bus or tube going to the job, with their power tools in a supermarket shopping bag (yes, we know every little helps, but still…). While it might be practical in the immediate short term, you will always need a good storage solution for your Dewalt tools to ensure they’re safe and protected from damage whilst in transport.
Here are my TOP TEN Dewalt Bags and Belts…
