Bass Pro Shops XPS Stalker Front Loader Bag or Tackle System
First, I just received this front loader bag and I’m impressed by the quality and features. From reviews of a similar bag it was noted that it was difficult to impossible to easily insert the fifth 370 storage box in the uppermost position due to the rounded zipper closure at the top. I ordered one Plano 3731 (3-1/4” high) and three Plano 3750 (2” high) boxes. It was easy to remove the uppermost box partition (shelf) from the bag by carefully cutting stitching that held it in place. It now holds the three 2” boxes in the lower three locations and the 3-1/4” box in the upper position. They can all be easily removed for access. Also, 2-3/4” high boxes will easily fit in the two end pockets. Super nice bag and for the record I’m using it for photography gear.

This case was much larger than I anticipated. It holds a TON of gear, and there are places to hold things everywhere. If you can't fit all your gear on this, you're taking too much gear. The trays are nicely organized with dividers, and the shoulder strap is well padded. I wouldn't lug this around the bank, but to take to the boat or similar, it's a no brainer. I also like cases with horizontal trays because it keeps your stuff organized without getting all messed up in the cases like the vertical cases do. I also have the backpack of this series and it's also really nice as well, perfect for bank fishing.

Spacious and functional
Nice bag with great use of space. Top has compartment to carry extra line, spool and reels. Sides has compartments for 2 smaller boxes, tools, fish attractant, etc. The front has shallow compartments for spinner-baits or other items such as hooks. The only complaint was the main compartment with shelves. Not sure the need for those as my other bag is very similar minus the shelves. Removing the top box required pulling the next one down out too. The fit was too tight. The whole shelf is easily removed so I pulled it out. All 5 boxes slide in and out with ease now.

Great design, great purchase
I wanted to look for new soft tackel bag to help me downsize some of my tackle. I owned the Extreme soft bag and it out grew my needs. What I didn't expect was that this new XPS stalker/front loader uploaded everything from the old bag into the XPS with room left over. The design and ability to evenly distribute all that I have was fantastic. The tackle box shelving devidors come out which fit my type boxes in the bag perfectly. The straps and handles make this very easy to carry. This is a Big 5 Star item. Thanks Bass Pro.
