    To clarify on the IKEA bag, the things sell for like 70 cents and absolutely are not tough enough to check on an airline. They don't even really close up. But they are pretty big and semi water-proof. (blue tarp material, but seams aren't sealed at all)

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    Hi to all,

    Lots of good ideas here but I wanted to comment on the design of some of these bags. Hardhat specifically asked about a wader bag. Bags that are designed for wet waders and boots mush have ventilation in the wader compartment or the bag and waders might mildew. Some of the bags suggested does not have this feature and I think they would be a poor choice for a wader bag. Waders cost a lot of money and I would not want to take a chance with a cheaper bag that was not ventilated.

    Thanks to every one for their suggestions. There was certainly some good ideas. I did go out and look around at different items the past couple of days. Today when I saw the fishpond yellowstone that Frank suggested I felt that it would be the one. Thanks again for all of your suggestions.

    Hardhat,

    That looks like a good choice. Let us know what you think about it after you have used it for a while.

    I mostly agree with Frank's thoughts on ventilation, but does anyone know anything about the airline's takes on shipping damp items enclosed only by mesh?

    Cliff, after reading your last post I realized that I best put the waders in a canvas bag before I put them into the wader bag. This way the waders will be more protected from punctures or other damage. I am glad this came up. Sometimes I hate to learn things the hard way.

    Hi Big Cliff... I can't comment on that, but I user my plastic camp duffle to pack out wet waders and boots without soaking my back. I just dry them out when I get home the same day.

    Clear Creek has a bag that actually looks pretty good. Plus it's only $80 and they claim to have a lifetime guarantee as well...
