Bass Pro Shops® XPS® Stalker™ Backpack Tackle Bag or System
don't like unsealed cooling part
i just bought this but i will return it because i do not like the fact that the top cooler section that is suppose to keep things cold is unsealed in its four bottom corners. i bought it in store and noticed it but decided to buy it anyways but you know what...it is something i can't accept. don't know why they did it that way. i wish someone would say if there is a valid reason. cooling areas are supposed to be sealed up.

I am primarily a shore fisherman and I wanted something I could put on my back to free up my hands so could carry additional things to the shore. Some of the lakes I fish in Western PA require a pretty good hike to reach the spots I like to fish from, so when I saw this bag I knew I needed it. I currently have 5 360 boxes in it and everything has a place. It really allows me to keep things organized. Also as I acquire more tackle and more 360 boxes it will allow me to swap out boxes for what I need for that particular day. I have not any issues with it and have gotten a fair share of compliments from other fisherman who really like the looks of this bag.

Nice concept BUT...
I saw the bag and I loved the idea of it BUT when I got it I didn't expect what I got. I used it and I loved all the storage space and pockets but I mainly bought it because of the "cooler" part of it. took the bag out one day threw an ice pack in the cooler pocket to keep my drinks nice and cool so as the day went I noticed that my drinks were hot and ice pack melted rather quickly. so I inspected the cooler part and noticed that there was two openings in each corner of it that wasn't stitched. apparently theres a zipper lining I would assume is for more storage boxes if u don't use the cooler part. now to me this doesn't make any sense. heat will get in thus making the cooler part useless. also the stitching where the net part of the bag is badly done too as I got my bag with it already torn. I will modify the cooler part but im disappointed in this as I shouldn't have to. maybe this needed to go out for some testing with people before it was put out on market. so everyone giving this 5 stars I will not understand. photos are provided

Absolutely great for shore fishing
I fish almost exclusively from the shore and this backpack was exactly what I needed. I can carry all of my gear plus a cold drink with no worries. The thing I like the most is how comfortable the straps are. I can carry this backpack with approx 20 pounds of gear in it all day hiking along the river or around the lake.
