I've had one of these for quite a while now (into my second season with it)and I have to say that it's a really well thought out bit of luggage, I can get rollers and accessories into the top compartments and bait into the base... the base is thermally lined so it keeps your bait nice and cool with a couple of blocks, you can fill the thing with loads of gear which brings me onto it's only problem.... the only downside is the size, and that's not really a problem other than the temptation to fill it to the brim which in turn makes it a tad heavy... I like the velcro flap at the back, which you can tuck the shoulder strap into so it doesn't lay on a muddy bank... like I said... well thought out... I paid 58 for mine with a club discount from Angling Direct

Nice piece of luggage, I have one and I like it, though it wont hold most new pole rollers, like most of that range of luggage it isn't too waterproof (hence why a lot of companies now use eva materials).



Would love to say I'm a 'top class all-rounder'......but I would not be telling the whole truth!!

The XL Rollers don't fit, they are too long, I bought it without measuring, so bought the dedicated maver roller bag, and since I have the preston roller bag which is very good.

I've had mine for 2 or 3 years now and it's still going strong - it's robust, durable and was very reasonably priced.

I don't have any complaints at all, but like the poster above, I did buy an XL Roller which is just too long for the side pockets (my own fault for not measuring it beforehand).

it is good, had mine for 3 years which is quite a while for a carryall. The zips have now bust though so time to change. However I am going back to a traditional carryall, as one thing that did irritate me is because it is so organised you cannot just dip you hand in and grab things if that makes sense. concur with the above, XL rollers do not fit in, preston have now brought out a roller bag....

I agree totally with your comments. It's a superb piece of luggage. However it weighs a bloody ton.



It's better to be a fool for 5 minutes of your life by asking a question than to be a fool for the rest of your life by not knowing the answer.

The holdall and net bag is the same. Super bit of kit but very heavy. On the holdall it has a thick moulded solid plastic base which is heavy enough on its own.
