  1. My husband loves it

    By Becky February 15, 2018

    Purchased this as a gift for my husband who is an avid fisherman and he loves it. He has been using it every weekend.

  2. Wish it was bigger

    By Simon Bogdanov February 03, 2018

    This backpack is smaller than it looks in pictures, however it is very well made. I'll keep it and use it for quick trips to the river or when I know what I'm fishing for and don't need to carry too much tackle.

  3. Fantastic backpack!

    By Richard Wilkinson January 14, 2018

    The best fishin spots in my area are fairly remote and I typically have to park and walk to the water. This tackle backpack makes carrying all my gear much easier. The LED light is great if you fish after sunset like I do and need to see to tie a knot or change lures.
