Milwaukee Packout Tool Bags

I love that Milwaukee started with open top tool bags as a new concept in modular storage. They’re taking it to the next level with zipper top tool bags. These go beyond just the standard duffel-style that you just throw a bunch of tools in, though you’re welcome to do that if you like.

Milwaukee Packout 15″ Tool Bag

 

The 15″ tool bag gives you bulk storage space for a variety of tools up to the size of a circular saw or Sawzall and you can fit a combination of smaller tools with their accessories. You get large outside pockets on both side and thin MOLLE-style straps to clip other gear on. This bag takes up a half-width area on your system, leaving you room for a second piece next to it.

Milwaukee Packout 20″ Tool Bag

Milwaukee Packout Expansion

The 20″ tool bag starts with the same feature set as the 15″ bag and extends the storage space. There enough room to fit a full 4-piece combo kit. You also add 5 interior pockets – a medium size that’s perfect for meters and 4 small pockets for hand tools and small meters like a voltage tester. This is a full-width item, so it will make up the top of your Packout stack.

Milwaukee Packout Low-Profile Organizer

Milwaukee Packout Expansion

The Low-Profile Organizer is essentially a shorter version of the standard Packout Organizers. If you’ve been filling your Organizers with washers or small fasteners, you know they start packing some weight pretty quickly. Both Low-Profile models give you a shallower way to store them while still keeping items from traveling between bins.

They also have dividers that can help you organize into even smaller areas. Be aware that these dividers don’t prevent travel from one part of the bin to another. If you’re thinking you found the perfect replacement for your tackle box, those hooks and small weights are still going to mingle.

Milwaukee Packout Expansion

One feature I really like is the long middle space. It’s perfect for storing Sawzall blades and is also on the original Organizers.

This one is a full-width Organizer and you can stack more Packout products on it.

  • Model Number: Milwaukee 48-22-8431
  • Slim Profile
  • 10 Removable Bins
  • IP65 Rated Weather Seal
  • No-Travel Bins Prevent Small Part Migration Between Bins
  • Length: 19.76″
  • Width: 16.38″
  • Height: 2.52″
  • Weight: 4.55 lbs.
  • MSRP: $39.00

Milwaukee Packout Compact Low-Profile Organizer

Milwaukee Packout Expansion

The half-width Compact Low-Profile Organizer has all the same features as the full-width version minus the long center storage area. It’s a half-width product that can lock another item on top of it.

  • Slim Profile
  • 5 Removable Bins
  • IP65 Rated Weather Seal
  • No-Travel Bins Prevent Small Part Migration Between Bins

Milwaukee Packout Tech Bag

58 pockets surround the Tech Bag with protection against the elements and abrasion. There’s a Hardshell pocket that gives your tablet or laptop some additional survivability as well. The pack has a pretty large volume with a variety of different spaces for those pockets to help you really organize your bag. The top zips closed to offer some protection against the dust and debris floating around on site.

  • Model Number: Milwaukee 48-22-8300
  • 58 pockets
  • Hardshell tech pocket, jab saw pocket, and daisy chain straps included

Milwaukee Packout Backpack

Packout’s backpack features 48 pockets to go along with the convenience of keeping both hands free to climb or carry other equipment. Like the Tech Bag, Milwaukee includes a Hardshell pouch to protect electronics and other tech. They take their backpack a step further than most with extra padding in the shoulder straps. There’s a sternum strap to help stabilize the load.

  • Model Number: Milwaukee 48-22-8301

Milwaukee Packout Cooler

At first glance, the Packout Cooler looks like Milwaukee’s job site cooler. That’s alright by me. The soft side design is one that I carry frequently and that friends who borrow it are reluctant to give back. It’s perfect for carrying your lunch and plenty of liquids while the exterior pockets keep other items where they can stay dry. Now you get the same benefits with Packout compatibility.

  • Model Number: Milwaukee 48-22-8302
  • 24-hour ice retention
  • Food-grade leakproof liner with no sweat exterior
  • 5 storage compartments
  • Tape measure clip/bottle opener

I ran all over town and finally found one left. I bought it only to find out the freakin handle fully collapsed is still to tall to fit in my truck with the cover closed. This is absolutely ridiculous. Its unfortunate Milwaukee designed a product for an industry full of people who mostly drive pickups and didnt take into consideration the fact that a lot of us have covers on our trucks.
