I really prefer using a soft sided tackle bag after trying a few different things over the years including hard tackle boxes and boxes with stacks of trays/boxes inside, and this is the first new one I have bought in a long time. My last bag was an old soft duffle bag I had re-purposed, this bag is actually designed for fishing. I looked at many bags at Amazon.com, auction sites and fishing gear sites before choosing this bag. For one thing, tackle boxes and bags have gotten very expensive, so price was one of my considerations in choosing a new tackle bag for fishing. For the price this bag was really affordable compared to other bags I looked at. Once I chose which bag I wanted, the best price was here at Amazon, especially with shipping. I fish with bait, lures, flies, and the fish I seek out are trout, bass, perch, kokanee salmon, catfish and bluegill. I wanted a tackle bag that would hold everything but my rod, net, and lunch. But with this bag I can still strap the net to the outside of the bag, and slip my lunch and thermos inside so it exceeded my expectations, without carrying a big monster bag. If I break my rod down, I can strap it to the top as well. I also looked at the type of bags that come with nice big Plano style tackle boxes for lures inside, but the boxes always fill the entire bag and they are too big for me. I already have plenty of boxes, prefer to handpick my boxes, and I use a variety of smaller Plano type boxes and fly boxes. Each box is dedicated to different varieties of fish or types of fishing that I can switch out before a trip as I need them. Another reason I do not like to use big tackle boxes, is that just one careless bump or kick from me when its open and my gear is dumped everywhere. I planned to buy a bag in a reasonable size because if I have a bigger one, it is too tempting for me to load too much stuff and then its gets heavy. I fish from both the shore and boat, so I needed a bag I could carry back and forth. I found this one to be very comfortable when its full in size and shape, and the padded strap and handles helps. It has a padded shoulder strap, and it still leaves my hands free. It also has 2 short handles for carrying by hand. This one is just the right size for me. It has a waterproof nylon interior, and a hard interior bottom to maintain the shape of the bag. The bag is waterproof, whichj does not mean you can fill it with water, it means if you splash it the inside stays dry and the water does not harm the bag. It seems to resist stains and tears very well. It still looks new after heavy use this year. FEATURES: It came with a bunch of adjustable velcro dividers for the main interior compartment that allow you to lay out the inside any way you like. I used about half of them. It has a clear pocket on the interior lid for papers and electronic devices. The exterior of the same lid has a cable net to hold your coat, gloves, hat, rod tube or a net. The strap D-rings have room to clip items on. It has nice exterior pockets all the way around, the back side is one long mesh pocket that runs down the whole bag. It has a tool pocket one the front that has 3 elastic mini compartments inside, a big area, and another zippered area, exterior bandolier type things, carabiner clips, and a small zippered pocket for your license. One side has a mesh water bottle pocket on the side with a strap, D-rings and a pocket with a velcro lid. The opposite side has a large pocket, that for me fits 8 bottles of bait. It has a comfortable padded shoulder strap that clips onto D-rings, it and the dividers were bundled inside and had to be installed, which takes a few seconds at most. SIZE: Measures 16 inches long x 12.7 inches wide x 16 x 11.2 inches tall. Very light, it weighs just under 1 pound. PICS: I added 4 pictures of my bag to this page in addition to the 1 picture Amazon has, so you can see the top and the back of the bag, interior, pockets, the handles and padded shoulder strap. I almost didn’t buy this bag for the previous lack of good pictures here. I posted my pics with the bag empty and also with my gear loaded in it, it was hard to get a realistic feel for the size and capacity with the sellers pic so I hope this helps you figure out if this is the type of bag for you or not. Everybody has different tastes in fishing gear, this one works great for me and was affordable compared to similar bags. UPDATE: December 2011. It is now two fishing seasons that I have used this bag. It has proved to be very durable, no problems with zippers, straps, or pockets, no tears. The material still looks new. It has proved very useful, and I am still impressed and glad I bought this bag. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (22) Reply 79 of 80 people found the following review helpful Great Features, Bang for the Buck and NOT Just a Tackle Bag, January 8, 2013 By Pete Lim (Rockville, MD United States) – This review is from: Ready 2 Fish Soft Sided Tackle Bag (Sports) ~BACKGROUND~I have been fishing for over 30 years and have owned numerous types of tackle boxes ranging from single-tray, 2-tray, 3 tray and tackle systems. This is the first soft “sport” style fishing bag I have owned. ~PROS~– Definitely not just a tackle bag as it can used for other hobbies or general use due to all the features.– Great value at ~$20! =Exterior=– Waterproof/weather resistant which is great when you are out in light rain or oceanside with mist.– Adjustable shoulder strap is padded and great for slinging the bag over your shoulder– Shoulder strap is on swivel style clips and can be easily removed– 2 small handles that velcro together allow for carrying by hand– water bottle holder– backside of bag has a full length and almost full height mesh pocket which is great for storing items you need quick access to such as pliers, hook remover, etc.– top of bag has a cargo net which is great for holding larger items that don’t fit in the bag such as a rod holder, net.– numerous exterior pockets– zippered front pocket has small pouches which is great for organizing– bottom of bag is solid and rugged =Interior=– clear interior lid pocket is great for storing papers, keys, wallet, license or electronic devices.– velcro divider system inside allows customization to suit your style/needs. There are two large left to right dividers and 3 smaller top to bottom dividers.– easy to clean interior. Just use a mild cleaner and paper towels to wipe everything down. ~CONS~– The outside front pocket has carabiner clips which I do not have a use for. I’ve tried clipping things such as a clippable water bottle but it swings around too much and when I put the bag down it gets dirty/banged up. I’ve also tried scissors and pliers, but found the backside mesh compartment easier/faster to access/use. I think this space could have been better designed. ~TIPS~– Use smaller boxes such as Plano Pocket Stowaway 5 Compartment Utility Box orPlano Pocket Stowaway 6 Compartment Utility Box to keep organized inside the bag.– Use something like the Plano 2-3601-00 Thin Stowaway with Adjustable Dividers to use in the cargo net on top for added storage.– NOTE THE SIZE! Measures 18″W x 10″H x 14″D ~CONCLUSION~This is a fantastic replacement/alternative to a traditional hard tackle box which you have to carry by hand. The shoulder strap frees up your hands to carry other items. I used to need to carry an additional bag to carry other items such as sunscreen, bug spray, camera, wallet, keys, a drink, etc. Now I use just this bag and am much more organized. I’m not sure why some people are complaining that it doesn’t come with utility boxes inside for tackle. This would increase the cost for one and secondly I prefer to use/purchase my own. One of the best fishing-related purchases I have made. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 65 of 68 people found the following review helpful Really nice tackle bag for the money, May 3, 2011 By MysteryShopper – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Ready 2 Fish Soft Sided Tackle Bag (Sports) This is a really nice tackle bag for the money. I paid $25 here on Amazon for it, and I very rarely buy bags online since they are hard to know what it’s really going to be like when you get it delivered, but thanks to the photos from one of the other reviewers, I decided to take a chance. The construction is of decent quality. It probably won’t last forever, but it is also not shoddy. There are lots of pockets on the bag. Under the top lid there’s a clear plastic pocket, on the front side there’s a large pocket that when opened has a number of smaller pockets inside (without zippers) and the front pocket’s lid also has a zipper pocket inside, plus a small one on the outside that you can see in the photos. There’s a mesh pocket on one side for a water bottle or can of beer, plus another pocket with a flap over it that I haven’t decided what to use it for. Perhaps beer in that one and water in the mesh pocket. On the other side there’s yet another pocket. Inside the main compartment you will have 2 large dividers that velcro to the sides horizontally across the bag, and 3 small ones that are about 3″ to use for vertical separation between the larger dividiers, or between the edge of the bag and the dividers. I would buy again for $25 in a heartbeat. I think this is way better than a plastic tote as it is much more comfortable to haul around, and seems every bit as useful. It does not come with any organizers, so expect to spend a little bit finding ones that fit your needs and the size of the bag. I have two of my own for about $7 each. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
