Milwaukee® Introduces Ultimate and Low-Profile Backpacks
MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool continues to expand their Storage Solutions with the introduction of the Ultimate Jobsite Backpack and Low-Profile Backpack. Designed from the ground-up to address the needs of professionals who need a durable, mobile solution to transport tools, accessories, and other materials to and from the jobsite, the new Backpacks are up to 5X more durable than other backpacks on the market.
“These new offerings build upon the popularity of our flagship backpack solution, the Milwaukee® Jobsite Backpack, by providing users with even more options to better suit their specific storage and transportation needs,” said Matt Vargo, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “The Ultimate Jobsite Backpack is designed for tradesmen who often carry a wide variety of hand tools, power tools, and accessories with them, while the Low-Profile Backpack provides the functionality necessary for users who perform diagnostic or service work and need to carry a tablet or laptop as well as a variety of tools. These users will enjoy the low profile of this backpack because it will allow them to fit into tight spaces, such as caged ladders.”
Constructed with tear-resistant 1680D Ballistic Material and rugged metal zippers for extreme durability, the new backpacks have load-bearing harnesses with 2X more padding, as well as sternum straps that help evenly distribute weight for more ultimate comfort and jobsite performance. Vertical attachment straps also make it easy to mount the backpacks on the handles of rolling bags and dollies. The reinforced base of the Low-Profile Backpack provides extra protection in an area that frequently experiences damage due to jobsite conditions, and the impact-resistant base on the Ultimate Jobsite Backpack also allows the backpack to stand up on its own.
The new backpacks have been optimized to provide maximum storage capability and versatility. Each comes equipped with a large assortment of pockets to meet an array of tool and accessory storage needs – the Ultimate Jobsite Backpack with 48 and the Low-Profile Backpack with 22. The HARDSHELL™ electronics and equipment pockets on the Ultimate Jobsite Backpack are constructed of molded foam to provide protection for tablets and other personal items while on the jobsite. A padded laptop pocket on the Low-Profile Backpack allows protected storage for items like laptops, while a quick access front pocket has been designed for users who need to quickly reach for items like jackets or tablets. A dedicated puncture-resistant pocket on both backpacks provides a convenient storage area for sharp tools, such as jab saws, so they won’t cut up the interior of the bag. For added utility, each backpack also features a tape measure clip on the side for easy access.
Part of a growing line of storage solutions from Milwaukee, the new Ultimate Jobsite Backpack and Low-Profile Backpack will be available in October of 2017. Dedicated to delivering enhanced solutions to increase productivity, Milwaukee’s storage category will continue to grow and offer user-driven innovative solutions for the trades.
