What is the cost for this new? I can never seem to find it on here but hear people talking about it.

I bought one and love it. Works great for hauling gear on your wheeler or sled. Can't go wrong.

Great gear system for all year really.

I use mine for many things, canoe trips, hike in fishing, pack rods, lots of stuff.

Well worth the investment!

And I used to swear by the round Frabill 10-inch tip-ups, but with "the bag" I can fit four or five rods in the center compartment, three tackle boxes in one side compartment and three HT Polar tip-ups in the other side compartment. Good-bye Frabills, hellow Polar, and the whole thing is self contained.

Great deal. Really great deal at early ice, when you're on foot and can strap the Crox on your back and only have to carry a hand auger and a bucket with some bait to boot. Love those hands free.

Lots of room but I still cant get the ice scoop in one the way I would like. Im woried it will snap a rod. Also the zippers should be 2 ways. They always seem to be on the end your not.
Overall its a good bag and like stfcatfish said great at 1st. ice.
I would like to see a hard side model made just a bit bigger.

Very nice for those of us who fish outside and like to hike in to a spot. Carries all of my goodies and more. I wouldn't go without it now.

I made a Small 8" folding scoop, fits in the Croxton tote bag easy. I also have a Gremlin minnow scoop with my Vex, half the time that is all I ever need to keep the hole slush free.

I have not dragged around a full size scoop since my last Jiffy Scoop went down a hole on DL, 3 years back.

I've got the big bag, and will never go back to a bucket for my rods and tackle. I can fit all my tackle on one side compartment, and 12 cans on the other, with several rods, a dipper, rattle reels, etc in the main compartment. My wife bought the bag from this site for me grin.gif
One improvement suggestion - I wish there were two zippers on each side compartment so I could open it on the top, and not have to open it all the way.

GET ONE THEY ARE THE BEST I HAVE HAD 8 RODS IN THE MAIN COMPARTMENT AND I AM TALKING 30" WALLEYE RODS WITH BIGGER REELS. I ALSO HAVE MY JIFFY DIPPER IN THERE AS WELL AS ROD HOLDERS AND THE OLD CRIBBAGE BOARD. IN THE ONE SIDE POCKET I HAVE 5 TACKLE BOXES AND THE OTHER SIDE I HAVE ALL THE SURGICAL TOOLS THE PLIERS, SCISSORS, MOUTH SPREADER, DIGITAL SCALE, PROPANE TORCH FOR THE STOVE, CAMERA, AND INFLATIBLE SEAT CUSION. I NEVER THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD BE POSSIBLE TO PUT THAT MUCH STUFF IN IT BUT I HAVE IT ALL IN THERE RIGHT KNOW. I AGREE THE ONE THING THAT THEY NEED TO FIX IS TO PUT TWO WAY ZIPPERS ON THE SIDE POCKETS BUT IT ISN'T TO BAD WITH OUT THEM. THE BACKPACK STRAP ARE AWESOME. REALLY COOL PRODUCT IT IS THE BEST THING I BOUGHT THIS LAST YEAR.

Hey Stfcatfish you don't like those Fragil tip-ups either eh. I heard of 20# pike railroading them and still not setting er off. They just get hung.

Just got mine in the mail last night. Two days from the time I ordered it till the time it arrived on my doorstep. Pretty good service! This looks like it will be a good deal. I was getting so tired of the mess and tangle from the 5 gal buckets. I had already broken one rod as well so from a protection standpoint they look like a good deal.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
