I had a lot of PVC laying around with no place to store it, so I made a bunch of rod holders for travel. Normally this would be an expensive ordeal and cardboard mailing tubes would do just fine. But, I used what I had. It resulted in a need to carry all the tubes (cardboard, PVC, whatever) so I could toss them in the back of a cargo van, stand in a corner, or laying on the kayak rack in the back of my van. I looked at microphone gig bags, camera umbrella stand bags, etc. then saw these for carrying rods on the outside. PVC tubes do not fit in the rod holder pockets of this bag so they are useless to me in that function, but the inside of the bag is big enough to carry many 2″, 1 1/4″, PVC tubes containg my rods. You can get these for about $20 if you are not fussy about the color. The canvas bag stands 36″ not including the hood that I don’t use and just collar it down. I wanted was something to hold all my rods together while I travel. Most bags I would have to buy need a zipper equal to the longest tube I had (about 49″). I did not care if they stuck out of the bag. I could use a couple of bungee cords to do the same thing as this bag and not need to spend the $20. But I did, and here’s what you get.PROs:If I wanted, I could store 5 rods on the outside in the holders AND carry about 12ea 2″ tubes in the middle. Thats a lot of rod tubes.It has a zipper to acces the tubes in the center and since I have a couple of short 3 and 4 piece travel rods in a short case I could get easier access to them through the zipper.It has a shoulder strap and seems sturdy enough to carry a lot of weight (2″ PVC tubes weigh a lot).Time will tell but the stitching seems sturdy enough and has not broken yet. Probably not rated for the amount of weight I put in it but so far so good.The canvas is heavy enough to suit my purpose but its not heavy duty canvas like army duffle bag quality.At the end of the tube there is a draw string with locking slide you can close up over your tubes if they are short enough.It has an outside pocket in case I have shorter tubes.I like that its open ended. Its like a giant quiver.CONs:The zipper is not heavy duty. Treat it gently.The outside pocket is long and deep having no worthwhile use for me except to hold travel rods too short for the middle compartment.If you carry exposed rods in the designated holders on the outside, you don’t want any weight on the inside or your rod eyes will get crushed when you put it on the ground and reels will get scratches, etc. There is no protection. This thing is not padded anywhere.SO: All in all I got this as kind of a cheap golf bag to keep my rod tubes from rolling all around. I think $20 was maybe too much for that purpose. I would not recommend this bag for protection of your gear, but it serves its intended purpose of just a large carry bag from your vehicle to the house or river. You COULD fit a fold up lawn chair and its tube cover into the center of this bag, put a standard three tray tackle box on top of that, five rods on the outside and about 4 PBJ sandwiches in the outside pocket (the last one would be hard to get to and likely smashed). THAT would be a good setup for catfishing.

Very useful for surf fishing I do a lot of hiking to fishing area’s and this rucksack with rod holders makes the going easier than the usual carry everything in my arms I envisioned a thicker canvas fabric, but it has held up well to some abuse, so far, so good.

Love how we are able to take most of poles with us in one trip. Not to mention 2 folding chairs also fit. The pattern we have is okay. Not my favorite print. Nice pockets and a strap helps secure the poles even better. Only down side is, this one is better at holding catfish poles. Unless you leave your poles together and not broke down, they don’t quit fit it the holders bc they’re a bit short. All in all, it was a great gift!

Get the cardboard tube that everyone mentions. It completes the bag.

My boyfriend loved it, even came with a gift

Put it to the test quickly! What a great idea!! With only two hands, one can carry only so much. This will carry fishing gear for the whole family+ lots of extras like clothing, chairs, tackle. Everything will be organized too.

Works as promised. Keeps all of my items separated, secured, and ready to use

Good product for a fisherman just getting started accumulating gear. I hope the material stands up until our grandson needs or wants a replacement. It looks very nice.
