Europe’s leading hand tool brand, Facom launches a backpack with built-in tool, laptop and mobile phone storage.
For engineers and mechanics on the move, Facom has designed the BS.L30: a lightweight and fully adjustable backpack with a removable tool organiser, laptop compartment, mobile phone pocket and dedicated space for documents.

Measuring 355 mm x 225 mm x 460 mm, with 30 litres of storage space and 12 kg load capacity, the backpack has been designed to be as generous as possible while remaining light and portable. The Facom backpack is manufactured from a tough, 1200 x 1200 denier nylon fabric and features a rigid, waterproof base which allows it to stand freely. The non-aggressive surface profile ensures that delicate floors are not damaged.
A useful feature is the inclusion of a tool organiser, complete with carry-handle, which can be quickly removed from the backpack and transported to wherever it is needed. The handle also means that the organiser can be suspended nearer to the operator if required – on a ladder, for example.

Functionality is further increased with the inclusion of a padded laptop compartment, a protective mobile phone pocket incorporated into one of the shoulder straps and numerous outer and inner pockets.
The backpack has been designed to be as comfortable as possible. A padded panel on the rear protects the user’s back, while the soft carry-handle ensures that hands do not become sore when carrying heavier loads. Fully adjustable padded waist and shoulder straps allow the wearer to achieve a perfect fit and an adjustable sternum strap provides extra stability.

When carrying valuable items such as tools and laptops, security is a natural concern. For this reason Facom has designed the backpack to accommodate a padlock. Safety has also been addressed with the addition of reflective stripes to the outer shell.

Alison Howard, UK Marketing Manager for Facom, says, “We hope our new backpack will appeal to professional engineers and mechanics who need to carry a manageable inventory of tools, along with mobile office essentials, from job to job. We believe that it offers a great combination of comfort, flexibility and portability.”
