We take a look at the Stanley Fatmax Tool Bag and give it an honest review
Stanley Fatmax Tool Bag Review
Stanley Fatmax Tool Bag is designed for when you want a general storage bag to pop your tools into with little fuss.
The interior of the Stanley Fatmax Tool Bag is lined with non-slip rubber straps to keep smaller tools in their place. Specific tools also have specialised compartments, so you know you can rely on your drill bit holders, spirit levels, saws and measuring tape will always be on hand when you need them.
The bag is made from a very tough 600×600 denier fabric for durability. We chucked hammers, chisels, blades and lots more in the bag while we were testing and never came close to damaging the bag or tearing a hole in the side. This bag is clearly built to last.
Many of the seams are reinforced with a leather feel material and key points are riveted for extra strength. The handle is made from rubber coated metal – this is far better than the traditional cloth handle on older style bags as this won’t sag in the middle regardless of the weight of the tools. This allows you to carry the bag (and your tools) wherever they need to go in relative comfort.
The bottom of the bag is also reinforced and waterproofed – this is an excellent feature as it allows you to set your tools down in a damp environment without the worry of getting your tools or the bag wet. The rigid bottom also keeps the bag upright at all times so your tools won’t spill out.
The Stanley Fatmax Tool Bag has been available for a number of years now and the design hasn’t changed since 2008, this longevity also means that the price has nearly halved making this bad excellent value for money.
We think that the Stanley Fatmax Tool Bag is an excellent investment and one that will last for years.
