Browning Fishing Top Loader Tackle Bag or System
Don't Use the Zippers!
I bought this for my husband for his birthday. First of all, it is huge. I hadn't really realized from the pictures that it was as enormous as it is. You need half a store full of tackle just to fill it. So in that regard, it is a great item if you really need a big bag to carry enough tackle for a year of fishing and lost lures. I'm giving this item a 2 because when my husband unwrapped this, opened the box, and unzipped the bag, the zipper broke. After reading the other reviews, I see that this issue is prevalent for this item. Since the bag is huge, it is absolutely covered in malfunctioning zippers. For the price, I was disappointed and since it was a gift, a little embarrassed. It is being returned this weekend.

Would Not Reccomend
I purchased this bag about 2 yrs. ago and the zipper that holds the rain coat on it broke so I continued to use it.
About 6 mo. later I had one of the big straps rip in half. so I decided to take it back and try my second one.
The first time that I used it the top main zipper broke so I'm very upset with this product because it's built to hold a lot of items but not strong enough to uphold the weight.
I did get my first bag a little wet when it rained while fishing but come on it's a fishing bag and it should be able to get a little wet.
I would not waste your money because it is not cheap and it is not durable.

As far as tackle bags go ,if you purchase this bag it will be an exspensive mistake. The bag has all the room, look, usability for serious tournament fishermen but the quality is pure disappointment in every since of the word. Zippers fail within first few uses. The top flap over the boxes is sown short so it cant velcro over your boxes leaving a faulty broken zipper to supposedly hold your boxes in. The stitching comes apart and the velcro isnt sown on enough to pull apart from itself without pulling the stitching out. The worm bag has such a small velcro patch it will not hold it onto end of bag, so the poorly designed clip is all that holds it which lets it droop and flop around.the fishing sunglass pocket is to small for glasses in a case. The double small pockets on the side, the zipper pulls are to the inside tucked under net center pocket making it hard to reach them fast and work smoothly. The built in rain cover is nice but blows off going down the river because there is no built in way to secure it over the tackle bag.
You DONT always get what you pay for. Hope this help enlightens you on picking a tackle bag.

Do not buy until they fix zippers
I bought this bag thinking it was top of the line. I previously had the xps stalker which was great but I needed more space. When I recieved the bag I loaded all my gear and tried to close it when both zippers broke. Penty of space but definetly not rugged like they claim.
