Hauling tools to and from the shop or to and from your truck or van can be a real pain. The new Husky 22 inch Rolling Tote Pro can make that job a lot easier. If you are in the trades, such as HVAC, plumbing, electrical or construction, then you know what it’s like. To carry all those hand tools and personal power tools to and from the job site every day, it’s a real pain. Some service and maintenance may require you to do this multiple times each day.
With the Husky 22 inch Rolling Tote Pro, three wheels, a handle, and the many pockets, clips, and compartments, you not only get tool storage but mobility as well. Furthermore, the main compartment and pockets behind the main zipper are water resistant. This protects your valuables from dust and moisture while on the job site. Also, the Husky rolling tote is made from 1680 denier ballistic nylon, protecting from flying shrapnel and abrasions.
Husky 22 Inch Rolling Tote Pro Features
The main compartment of is probably the largest tool compartment that I’ve seen in a mobile tote bag. At 22 inches wide and 15 inches deep, the user can store a plethora of tools in here. Small pockets and pouches adorn the inside walls of the main compartment, 38 storage pockets in total. We fill ours with snips, pliers, adjustable wrenches and other hand tools. We also have plenty of room to fit a cordless impact wrench, hammer, and other power tools in the huge compartment.
An extending handle lifts high enough for me to comfortably move this Husky 22 Inch Rolling Tote, and I’m not short, at 6’2″. Once onsite or back in the shop, the handle is easily collapsed into the back of the bag, with very little protrusion. Three plastic wheels along the rear allow users to roll the tote for mobility. This is easy on hard surfaces, but the wheels are quite small. Rolling on soft grass or dirt is more like pulling a sled. At least the handle is sturdy enough and the bag is made from ballistic nylon.
If you’re more in the need for hard-cased tool storage and mobility, then take a look at the DeWalt Tough System Storage DS130 DS300 DS450 Review.
1680 Denier Ballistic Nylon
Ballistic nylon! Does this mean it’s bulletproof? Not hardly. Denier is a unit of measurement – mass (in grams) per 9,000 meters. One thread of silk, 9,000 meters long is 1 Denier. The higher the Denier count, the thicker and heavier the fiber. Don’t confuse this with thread count, which is the number of fibers in an inch. 9,000 meters of this ballistic nylon weights 1,680 Denier, hence 1680 Denier ballistic nylon.
Ballistic nylon was first developed by DuPont Corporation for flak jackets, worn by World War II airmen. These flak jackets didn’t stop bullets or bombs, but they were meant to protect them somewhat from flying debris, possibly shrapnel. “Laboratory tests have been run and the double weave 1050 denier fabric is the strongest and most durable fabric for its denier weight level. The 1680 denier is a good alternative that has a similar strength but lighter weight than the 1050 as it resists abrasion and tearing. Ballistic nylon is hard to dye, so it is often found in black or similar dark colors.” Source: Wikipedia.

Hauling tools to the job site one by one is a real pain. Furthermore, I loathe the 5-gallon bucket with the tool skirt – there are much better options. The Husky 22 Inch Rolling Tote Pro definitely provides ample storage for trades on the go. The pouches are easy to access on the inside, and the weather-resistant zipper and flap help to protect your tools when that afternoon shower rolls in. The wheels made it nice for rolling on the hard surfaces, but they weren’t sufficient for rolling off the beaten path.
We liked the integrated clips, meant for tape measures, but they work great for hanging power tools by their belt clips. 1680 Denier ballistic nylon suffices well to hold up against typical work abrasions and riding in trucks and vans. If you’re in the trades or anything else that requires you to carry a bunch of tools around, then we recommend you have a look at the Husky 22 Inch Rolling Tote. You can purchase it from your local Home Depot, or get it online here.
