Rated 5 out of 5 by SnagKing Great Bag This is the first bag that was big enough to carry all my boxes. The pockets and different sections are perfect for all the little things. This is the first bag i actually have pocket not full of equipment. June 4, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Statrx67 Good design with a few major flaws First the good: Well laid out with plenty of room for tools, lures and all manner of fishing equipment. Nice touches include multiple netted storage areas for damp items, multiple straps and lifting handles and many separate storage pockets. The bad: The zippers are plastic with metal sliders. Even with rinsing (apparently not enough) after a day of salt water fishing they eventually became stuck and I've had to force open some of the storage areas rendering the zippers useless. Velcro enclosures would be way better. Be sure to spray the zippers with a protectant/lubricant. After a year of use the straps have begun to disintegrate. Luckily it's still useful as there are two beffier lifting handles that can still be used to lift the bag. I have some other bags that see just as much use under the exact same conditions and care that show no signs of failure. May 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by ranger362v Well made bag. I recently purchased this bag to replace my old co-angler bag. This bag is really well made. It has plenty of room for all the storage of your lures you would ever need. The only negative I have found about this bag is the top slot for storing a 370 size plastic box is really a tight fit and hard to get in and out. April 17, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by firefox0051 Zipper issues Good day all, I am an avid loyal customer of BP, but this item is the worst I've recieved. the QAQC of the zippers was just not performed. Three of the pockets zippers won't zip. I'm returning the item hoping the second one is better. The box has an awesome design and the functionality is well done. The XPS series is suppose to be the top of the line and I expect the quality to be the same. The first run missed the mark, let's hope the replacement is as advertised. April 1, 2013

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.
