Jack Pyke English oak decoy bag – 120 litres £27.95
At 75cm tall, 43cm wide and with a capacity of 120 litres, this is a handy bag for all outdoor pursuits. It is large enough to fit plenty of pigeon or duck decoys, full bodied or shells, as well as camo netting and more. It is built for comfort with two adjustable padded shoulder straps, which helps when carrying heavy game for long distances, and the straps don’t dig into your shoulders because of the padding. It also has a carrying handle for convenience, useful for around the hide. To close it you simply flip over the internal top flap and tighten the pull cord.
On the outside there are two sevenlitre zip pockets, big enough for your decoy stakes or a field spike, as well as 24 elasticated cartridge holders around the top. In between the cartridge holders there is a Velcro strap with a pouch below it to carry hide poles or pigeon floaters securely. The English oak camouflage pattern makes it less obvious in the hide. Not only is it big enough for all occasions, it is lightweight and will not weigh you down on the longer walks. And best of all, it’s large enough to carry all your gear on your back so you’ve got both hands free for your gun and dog on a lead. A really useful bit of kit.
