Solid Bag Review by CJH

CJH 4/7/2015

My dad gave me one of these - which I thought was goofy looking, but... It meets carry-on standards & fits my wading gear perfectly. Great design & quality - as expected. When it dies, I'll buy another.

Handy and Functional Bag Review by Coastal Outdoorsman

Coastal Outdoorsman 2/10/2015

This bag is a must out in the field when changing in and out of waders. First, it protects your wader booties from damage on rocky or rough ground while allowing you to stay out of the mud when changing into shoes. It also allows for breathable storage of your waders and boots on the way home. A great idea from Simms!

Keep your ride safe from your lifestyle Review by Fish4lyfe

Fish4lyfe 12/26/2014

This is hands down the one thing that keeps my car free from smelly mud and river muck. Contains the mess and smell. Makes for a great area to take waders off and keep your feet from hitting the wet ground. Cuts down on the mess of your gear by 90%

Incredible idea! Review by Jonathan

Jonathan 11/5/2014

One of the best things I have for fly fishing. Carries waders and boots, provides a changing mat and then serves as a carrier to get it all home again when wet. I need to order another one just to put away in case its ever discontinued!

Simply Fantastic Review by Catsailor

Catsailor 10/9/2014

It's so simple, useful and practical, a quality bag once tried I can never do with out it. Changing into and out of waders and boots made easy. Transport of muddy gear, with no mess, never so easy. Hose it off and good as new. Love it!

Simple and useful Review by Kaleun

Kaleun 8/7/2014

My wife got one of these and then gave me one.
I thought at first that it was a dumb idea but once I started using it I changed my mind 100%
My boots and waders fit comfortably in the bag as does my sling bag. Once at riverside, I can open the bag and use it as a clean, gravel free spot to put on waders and boots without getting the foot of my waders dirty with all kinds of schmutz. My shoes stay clean inside the bag.
Once I'm done, open the bag, remove shoes and I can remove boots and waders inside the bag area, and put on my shoes without picking up riverside debris.
The bag is ventilated so your boots and waders begin drying as soon as you get them into your trunk although I would not leave them in the taco bag for drying.

Simple but useful bag. Review by skip

skip 5/2/2014

This is a simple but logical bag. I use in conjunction with my Headwaters Gear Bag and when traveling it stuffs inside very easily. Once I am at my destination, I transfer the boots and waders to this bag when driving to different streams. Price is very affordable.

Great bag!!! Review by Rogerover

Rogerover 3/4/2014

Another super, practical item from Simms I hope won't be discontinued anytime soon. Works as advertised, however there is one tiny fault. If you don't drain out your boots thoroughly, a little bit of water will leak out from the little holes near the zipper ends where the bag folds. If the folding ends were stitched up about an inch or so, the problem would be solved without compromising the bag to open flat. And the water would stay in the bag, not seep out the sides. Otherwise, no other complaints; awesome bag.

Simply genious Review by Clayton

Clayton 1/21/2014

I loved the idea of having one of these taco bags, so my brother bought me one for my birthday 2-3 years back. I have been using this bag for my fly fishing AND duck hunting waders ever since and I can't imagine ever not having this thing on hand. Having a floor mat that I can change on, drop my waders onto, and zip up to store away is a beautiful thing to have, especially if there is any mud or debris on the waders. Just zip up the bag, keep your waders and boots separate from your other gear, and spray it all down when you get home. And like I said, I've been using this bag in muddy and sandy conditions year-round for 3 years and it still works like it just came out of the fly shop. Fantastic product.
