Browning® Fishing Top Loader Tackle Bag or System
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.

Zippers will break and break again
Love the bag itself but for the cheap plastic zippers. I've had them repaired 3 times and simply have given up. Not for fishermen used to quality sturdy reliable bag.

Overall good but....
....I would've give it a 5 stars if the zippers were good quality. All of the zippers popped out because they're made out of plastic. A bag at this price would deserve at least metal zippers. This is the only problem with this bag. If browing decides to replace plastic zippers for metal zipper, this bag would be the best of all.

I bought this bag in the spring of 2013 as I had outgrown my other tackle box and wanted a bag large enough to organize my tackle properly for the way I fish. This bag looked perfect and was perfect for the first 2 times out. Then the worm bag started to fall apart. The stitching along the side started to come out. My girlfriend stitched it back together for me. 2 months later the padded strap stitching was breaking and finally, as everyone else has commented, the top main zipper broke under normal conditions. Very disappointed in the quality and craftsmanship on this bag. I would have paid a little more money for quality since this bag fit my needs from a function and design stand point. Browning should be ashamed to put a higher-end priced bag on the market with substandard quality.
