Thread: Luggage for waders, boots, clothes

  1. Default Luggage for waders, boots, clothes

    I'm heading to Washington in late July and am looking for a bag that'll accommodate all my gear: waders, Rod N reel, boots, sling and other clothing and toiletries.
    Any recommendations on an affordable option?
    Some parameters...
    Can't spend $300 on a bag
    Doesn't have to be a fishing brand (though preferable!)
    Tough enough to survive baggage handling

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    I love my fishpond cimmaron bag. Has a dedicated section for waders boots and an ample space uptop for everything else.

    Yes it will; that said for gear you want a 'hard bottom' bag/ditto for the clothing (that last bit's optional, clothing doesn't care). Check out 'REI' for suggestions.

    Floppy bottoms?

    I have an LL Bean rolling duffle and it meets my needs fine. I think they're around $100 just go to LL bean website and check them out. I get all my clothes, boots, waders, vest, toiletries, etc. in the duffle with no problem. You just need to monitor the weight so you don't exceed the 50lb limit for the standard airline fee. I carry on my rods in a Cabellas rod carrier and also carry on a small backpack with my reels and flies.

    I have a Simm's dry bag backpack but I can tell you that the Cabela's dry bags backpack (the large) is awesome. Used it white water rafting and for fishing gear. Super heavy duty and lifetime guarantee!

    I've had this one for over 5 years (?) and I've used it for a couple of dozen over night/week end trips. I've never flown with it.
    Not sure if a 4 piece rod would fit in it. It does have straps on both sides but I don't think you'd want check it with a rod on the outside.
    It has a waterproof flap in the bottom wader/ boot area so you can keep your boots away from your waders. I usually stuff my laundry in that area.
    I'm reasonably certain that it was well under $200.
