Hi All,

I need a BIG rucksack for all my gear as sick of lugging my box about plus dont fancy a breakaway type carry thing for the box...

So need something strong, that can take flasks, gear, clothes etc...my framed rucksack doesnt do the job as its tall but thin if that makes sence..

the kind of shape im looking for is like the mustard surf...big and square

any of you got any ideas ? or tried and tested opinions, as for example heard the imax are not that great ? but also heard bad reports on the mustard...

cheers

tom

I often use my old forces bergen when off for a long session.
I can get my fishing gear, clothes, food, Tent, sleeping bag, lights.
Have a look on a car boot sale or something.
I can easily get enough gear in it for a 2 day trip.

I've got the Imax 35 Litre and although it will be too small for you the bag is well made, well designed and a doddle to carry - they do a slightly larger 55 ltr version which may be OK - I'd say they warrant a closer look!

The 35L Imax is spot on so the 55L is well worth a look. Mustad would be fine to carry your gear to the beach. Questionable though if it would last long enough to get it back to the car when you pack up:) :)
Mind if you look on here too long everything will get slagged off at some time or another:g: :g:

I've got the mustad surf rucksack. It's so big, that it gets uncomfortable quickly when it's full. I would try and scale the gear down enough to fit in the Mustad Rover rucksack. Cheaper and more compact, but still has a great capacity.

Have a look at ebay Item number: 280093558672 (100 ltr sack) or Item number: 290092974942 (65 ltr). I use the smaller one and you can get side pouches for both which adds another 20 litres, if you're running short on space and are feeling strong! :)

Shakespeare Salt rucksack. 35 litres for £18. Holds absolutely everything. Dunno how they do it for the money.

If you want a massive rucksack like a 75 or 85 litre theb i suggest going to your local outdoors shop. Karrimor, Lowe Alpine, Berghaus, etc will all produce large, well built rucksacks which are much more hard wearing than the ones produced by the fishing manufacturers. Try Blacks or Millets, both have sales on at the moment. I personally use a 25litre Berghaus day pack and the titan utility waste belt, however i do try to travel light. On easier venues such as piers i prefer to use my large Shakepseare Team Box it seems to swallow an endless amount of tackle.

There's only one problem with large rucksacks - the tendency to fill 'em.

The amount of gear "required" for a fishing session expands in direct relationship to the space available.

I've often thought that we should all be compelled to a period of living on a boat, it's surprising just how little you "need" when space and weight really are at a premium

that is so true i got a trakker rucky for an amazing price(i better not say what as my local tackle dealer might ban me!!)it's 85 litres and i hardly use any of the extra gear i packed in it after using my 30 litre day pack.

it's a bit like a shed the bigger it is the more crap i seem to fill it up with!!!

thanks for all the comments guys.

Wooky - I looked up your ebay refs and "bagged on" excuse the pun, thanks mate...

Ian - Meant to say thanks, dusted off some pulley pennels earlier this year that were great, hopefully will use the rest during the spring run.
