Great Bags Zips are rubbish Review by Murray

Murray 10/5/2015

I have two of these bags, in which I can put salmon reels and flies and trout reels and flies. Everything about the bag layout is good.
The zips on both bags ave failed leaving me in effect with boxes which I have to carry horizontally in order not to spill the contents. This is not a great advert for the Simms brand

I find these cases to be very versatile with the moveable dividers and pockets. These cases have allowed me to load less gear in my vest, but still have the stuff I may need in the truck or boat. I am ordering yet another case (my fourth) as I use them for Reels and Spools, Sink Tips and Leaders, Fly Boxes, Sun Glasses etc. I don't take all of my Fly Boxes on every trip and these cases allow me to organize and select about 12 boxes that fit the type of fishing, time of year and one or two handed rod fishing, plus they fit perfectly in the boat. When you get your case put a little candle wax on the zipper to make them work better. Love these cases!

Great accessory bag! Review by JD

JD 3/19/2013

Purchased this bag to fill a niche...reels, spools, boxes and more! Great carrying this from house to my Subaru and back. Allows me to reset my essentials before I am back out the next day. I will say I like to minimalize what I carry but this has been a great purchase. I like the detachable panel; it works nicely as a small workstation I can carry spare leader building material, laces and boot studs. One again I say: "Well done Simms!" (Sorry not everyone has had the same experience however I recommend this to all with similar needs!!!!!)

Terrible zippers Review by Dan

Dan 1/7/2013

Unfortunately, the main zippers on the case have given way and I'm looking for a replacement. I've had the product 12 months. I don't misuse my gear but this is not what I'd expect from Simms. The bag itself is awesome, it's just a shame the zips are budget. Think carefully before buying.

Great - not only for reels though! Review by Yukon_fly - Yukon, Canada

Yukon_fly - Yukon, Canada 7/20/2012

I originally bought this case with the intent to use it to pad / protect my reels from damage in my larger duffel. I found however that this could be the greatest airline carry-on ever designed! I tend to prefer to travel light, so hate carrying a pack or small duffel into the airplane cabin. This briefcase is the ultimate solution. It fits perfectly in overhead compartments or under the seat on commercial flights while keeping all of the essentials and important travel documents organized and close at hand. I enjoy mine so much I'm going to buy a second as a spare! Great product!
