Greys bank bag £99.99
GREYS have packed a lot into their new bank bag which offers the versatility of a large easyaccess cargo space together with various zipped and mesh pockets for a whole range of gear and accessories. The bag is a good size measuring 20 x 12 x 11 inches and weighing 5lb 7oz. It is made from a durable polyester fabric with a DWR finish on many areas, and a waterproof fabric has been used on top of the bag and the two top pockets. It is well padded, giving the contents good protection, and is quite rigid so retains its shape. An EVA moulded waterproof base provides extra durability. The bag also has its own protective nylon rain cover that is stored in a zipped pocket on the back of the bag. The cover is attached to the pocket by a nylon strap so it won’t blow away in a gust of wind. Undo a double zip to open the top cover of the bag, revealing an inner lid that is secured to the underside of the top cover with a bayonet clip. On one side of this inner lid is a full-width clear reinforced plastic webbing pocket with a zip. To get to the other side undo the clip and drop it down to reveal a large foam patch. This patch, essentially an over-sized fly patch, is secured with Velcro so can be easily removed. The main cargo compartment has a bright red lining that highlights the contents, and attached to the sides are four nylon mesh pouches with elasticated open tops. External storage options include a box pocket on the front that opens around three sides. It drops down like a small work tray and has side gussets so the contents don’t spill out. Inside this pocket are three more elasticated mesh pockets and a band of sectioned elastic for a range of tools and accessories, and on the front is an open mesh pocket. There are four more pockets all with double zips: two on the top, and one at each end and these two also feature open mesh pockets on the front. The bag has a fixed carry handle with a foam grip on the top, and an adjustable detachable and padded shoulder strap. Extra features include two quick-release clips, and all the zipped pockets have double water-resistant zips with red cords and grey pull tabs.
Good build quality, very rugged and keeps its shape. A good-size for the bank angler. The zips are a little stiff around the corners but hopefully will loosen over time.
Pull the cover over the bag in heavy rain.
