The EFTTEX Best New Product Awards 2017
Snowbee says its latest bag has great practical applications whether you are sea fishing, game fishing or simply out walking or cycling with the family.
“The idea is that this versatile utility bag can be carried on your back out of the way when not required, and then, thanks to the release of a simple clip, easily swung into action and across your chest when access is needed.
“When it’s on your back, you are free to fish, row, cycle or whatever, with both hands free. When the clip is released the contents of the bag are brought into full view and the now ‘uppermost’ top opening allows easy access to the main compartment.”
The main benefit of this style over a rucksack, says Snowbee, is that with the single large shoulder strap all the contents of the bag can be easily accessed without having to remove the bag. “This is especially useful for surf fishermen and people constantly on the move,” they add. “The main compartment has been designed to carry up to two large lure boxes and of course will hold a packed lunch or waterproofs comfortably.”
Inside the main compartment there are a range of additional useful pockets and a front flap that pulls down to catch any items that may drop or to be used as a useful work surface. There are further external supplementary zipped pockets for other accessories such as a camera or sunglasses, and ‘D’ rings as required to hold a net or Boga grips securely but within easy reach at all times. Finally there is a water bottle pocket on the base and a shallow pocket on the shoulder strap to carry a pair of forceps.
The bag is made of black and grey lightweight nylon cordura and measures 42 x 24 x 18cms overall. The main compartment measures 28 x 24 x 13cms. RRP is £49.99 (€56).
