Smartphones, meters, and laptops belong in a deck builder’s tool kit, but they’re usually carried separately from the rest of the tools so they don’t get damaged. With one of Klein Tools’ Tradesman Pro Organizers, which have protection built in for electronic devices, tradespeople can carry them safely in the same bag with other tools.
The Tradesman Pro Tech Backpack and Tech Bag both have compartments for laptops as well as storage for adapters, cables, and other gear. The backpack has 25 pockets, a molded front pocket for safety glasses, and a molded bottom that protects contents from the elements. The Tech Bag has 22 pockets.
Also new to the Tradesman Pro line are two sizes of smartphone holders: a small one for the iPhone 4 and 5 and a larger one for the Samsung Galaxy 3 or 4. Each has a magnetic flap closure and a metal belt clip.
The Tech Bag retails for about $90, the backpack for $115, and the phone holder for $21.
