Greys bank bag £99.99

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Tackle -

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.

VER­DICT:

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.

The large foam patch on the in­ner lid.
