Winner: Best of the Best 2013 Modeled on tool bags favored by stonemasons, this tackle bag employs a hinged steel rod as a frame around the perimeter of the zip-closing top. The soft-sided bag won’t collapse, even when empty. The mouth folds out to a full 9x20-inch opening that simplifies loading, offers a clear view of the contents, and gives easy access. Six interior flat pockets and two removable foam dividers help keep it organized.
Seamless, molded-EVA foam forms a 2-inch-deep -bathtub-style bottom, so your gear stays dry even when the bag sits in bilge water.
