Klein Tools has come out with high visibility zippered tool bags, model 55599. The combo comes with 2 sizes – a 12-1/2″ x 7″ bag, and a 10″ x 5-1/2″ bag.
The zippered pouches are made from 1680D ballistic wave material, and there are reflective strips on both sides.
The interiors are also also brightly colored, in high-viz yellow-green. I suppose that’ll come in handy if you’re tired of hunting down black-finish screwdriver bits in an all-black tool bag in poor lighting.
The bags can be coupled together, and also come with a single accessory-sized carabiner clip.
Is there a need for something like this? If you’re working in certain spaces, especially low-lighting conditions, something like a small zippered tool pouch can get lost in the environment. One could argue that a bright colored tool pouch might be a good alternative, but I can see the benefit of high-viz stripes.
In a busy workspace, or dimly-lit environment, this bag will likely stand out well, especially if you do a quick scan with a flashlight.
It’s nice to have more options.
These do look different than Klein’s traditional canvas zippered bags; I wonder how they compare.
