Very Well Made Bags!
June 6, 2014
Being an avid user of Shimano Reels, rods, and apparel, it was only natural that I give this bag a shot. And I am glad I did. If you use Shimano Reels and Rods, then you know how well made, durable, and reliable, they are. Same holds true for these bags. Very well made, laid out, and practical. As well as durable, and well thought out. I actually started with the small bag. Using it for a couple of years, until my lure arsenal became larger. I then bought the medium bag, giving the small one to my Brother in Law. After 3 seasons with the small bag, in the surf, he thought I bought him a new bag! The main differences between the small and medium bag is; 2 extra vertical plug holders(divided in half by black dividers), medium bag has a larger side pouch to hold a small box(small one has a pouch to hold 2 jars of pork), and a larger area in order to store more tins, bucktails and diamond jigs. Both bags have a pliers sheath secured with a Velcro strap on the narrow side, tin, bucktail and jig holders, and vertical plug tubes divided in half with black dividers. Both have a large D ring on the back side of the bag with a large carabiner so you can clip it onto a D ring on your wader belt, taking pressure and weight off of your neck from the strap. They also have a large D ring on side near where the strap is secured, above the pliers sheath to secure your pliers lanyard or anything you may have. And 2 drain holes in the bottom of the bag. The bag closes with commercial grade heavy duty Velcro. And the material the bag is made out of is also heavy duty. And the strap is included with both bags. And lastly, the price of both is great and affordable. I could not find a bag, made of such high quality as these, for under $100. And then the quality of some of the bags for over $100 were questionable. And you have to purchase the shoulder strap separately for some of the others! I am very happy with this bag. And I am sure you will be as well. Be well!
Pros:High Quality, durable, practical, well though out, large enough to hold a great many plugs, tins, bucktails and jigs, affordable, comes with an attached carabiner to secure bag to your belt, shoulder strap is included
