Rated 5 out of 5 by Dinokath A+ Bag. Almost perfect in every way! I've used a number of tackle boxes in my life and this one is, hands down, the best I have ever used. I do not mind a heavy bag and this thing, fully loaded with all the trimmings from pliers to lead to leader and line, weighs in around 45lbs for me and handles it like the champ that it is. It is designed with the serious angler in mind. I take EVERYTHING I need to fish offshore from sea bass to cobia to cudas in this thing and still have space to carry spare gear and tackle. This is my second season using the bag and it still looks as good as the day I bought it. My only nitpicking complaints are the use of metal zippers and the lack of a raised waterproof base like the Plano (that costs 3x as much....). Keep the zippers clean and oiled and it should last many many seasons. I came back to this site specifically to do a review of this bag earlier in the year and saw it wasn't available or even listed and became upset at Bass Pro! Glad they have it listed now. This bag is tops. GET IT!! April 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rcountry1 Best All Around Tackle Bag Made! I purchased the XPS Stalker Front Loader Bag with the (5) 370, and (2) 360 boxes included. Although the cost was approx. $20.00 more, that is considerably less than if you had to buy the boxes individually. Access is extremely easy, especially if you fish in and offshore. Each compartment can be easily marked and visible, not to mention the additional space for tools, line, leaders, and extras. The tackle bag has (3) individual carrying ways; (2) permanately attached handles at the top, so if need be can be carried by two people onto a boat; it also has a dual strap with velcro closure; and finally has a very large dual shoulder strap. Outstanding bag for keeping yor gear safe and dry. March 17, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by WAREAGLEintheGulf Best tackle system Ive ever owned This is the best tackle system I have ever used. Period. I recently moved from North Alabama fishing the Tennesse River weekly to Southwest Florida fishing the inshore bays and flats as well as nearshore reefs and trolling. (Snook are largemouth on steriods!!) Pockets galore. This bag holds it all from large trolling x-raps, spooks/skitterwalks, mirror lures and spoons to tons of soft plastics plus all my rigging/terminal tackle. I keep my charts and hotspot maps in the large rear mesh pocket. I simply exchange the xps boxes from salt to freshwater tackle when we trailer an hour over to the big "O" for bass, crappie and bream. Quality is outstanding and the zippers have remained corosion free. And the colors are "WAR EAGLE" awesome. Seriously, I strongly recommend this product, especially for the price. Unbelievable value. I did treat the exterior with a uv/water protectant to help preserve its original quality. If you love or live to fish, South Florida is hard to beat with the ability to fish worldclass freshwater and saltwater, during the same weekend and this bag stores and organizes it all.

A:I dont think it will. The top is about 18 inches wide by 9 inches deep by 4 inches tall. I have a spinnerbait binder, sunglasses case, braid scissors, extra spools of line, and a few bags of often used plastics in the top of mine. I love this bag and the setup. I have 5-370s in the front, and a 360 on each side, and still have plenty of room for tools, etc.
A:If it will fit in a 14x9x4 compartment, as I just measured it.
A:As a matter of fact yes you can. Two regular sized 3600 boxes... a 3500 box vertically ahead of them, vertically to the right a 3455, two 1061's right next to that. And atop the 3600's two spools of line. And still zips up nice.
A:Absolutely, the top loader is designed for the storage of the 3600 model.
A:I havent used the browning front loader, but I would recommend this bag to any comparable bag. I am extrememly satisfied with the storage and ease of use of this bag.
A:I think it comes down to preference. I like both bags, but like the XPS better. Quality of the XPS and features are really nice!
A:Personnally I feel that the XPS Stalker front loader bag is the ultimate fishing bag/box ever designed. One it has tremendous space, cost efficent, extremely durable, waterproof, rugged, although it is heavy, you have a carrying strap, super padded shoulder strap, and the main seller is the two intergrated handles on each end so if neccessary can easily be carried by two people. Also, when you order the XPS model make sure that you order the boxes included, this alone will save you extra money.
Details:It seems like it is possible to put 370 or 3700 series in the side storage. I saw how much room it is in a review on You Tube.
A:The only way your going to get more than five 370 boxes in this is to use the really thin plano boxes. Five is the max.
A:You can... When you open the front, each spot for a 370 box is divided. You can put 7, or as many as you like,
A:No. The main compartment has nylon/cloth dividers for the 370 boxes. I suppose you could cut out the dividers.
I bought this bag at my local Bass Pro that was loaded with the boxes. (Five 370's and two 360's) It saved about $15 over buying it all separately.
Details:are the zippers metal or plastic? if metal' are they going to have the same rusting problems the old flambeau bags had? thx
A:The zippers are metal. I have used mine for 2 years in all kinds of midwest and northern weather and I have not seen any rust beginning to form.
A:The zippers are metal, with plastic grips on them. I don't seen them rusting, but my bag is brand new. Looks to have a good coat of paint on them.
A:Zipper 'teeth' are nylon. Zippers are metal. I have had it two years and it hasn't been an issue BUT I have kept it clean and oiled too. I fish saltwater and fish hard all day, beating the waves on the boat and the bag as been soaked a couple times.

A:the zipper itself is like a coated zipper and the zips are plastic. I've fished with mine all year and haven't had one issue with it
A:I believe that if it holds 370's, it should hold 360's.
A:Yes, the 360's will fit.
The are smaller than the 370's.
A:370's (5) are included in the front loading part, and I believe there is (1) 360 included in each side compartment.
A:I have bass pro 370 boxes and the fit great.
A:Plano (5) 3700 model series front loader and Plano 3600 model series top loader.
A:I use them to store Gulp Salwater baggies and sabiki rigs. Also a good spot to put 'used' gear to isolate it from the rest of you gear prior to cleaning to prevent saltwater corrosion.
A:Personally I think it was kind of a last ditch effort by the manufactures to incorperate space to store soft plastics which is what I used to use it for. The problem is that it was where I was storing almost all of them, Flukes, Senkos, trick worms, coffee tubes, berkley crazy leg chigger craws, berkley shakeyhead worms, zoom toads ect. Obviously not designed to hold all of that because the back of the front door will bulge and it's really hard to access the bottom 370 container. So what I did was put all of the powerbait stuff in the front (check pick, 5 or 6 bags max) because I don't like to store that smelly stuff in a plastic box. And just put all of my worms and tubes in the bottom 370, and the flukes and zoom toads in the top compartment. Bottom line It sould have been made way thicker to hold more but is good for a few but would also be good to store maps, lake charts, or extra new packaged cranks ect.
