I guess this should be put into equipment section but maybe people here will give more response to this.
Ive got to stop using my seat box as it is causing problems with my back so am after a rucksack. I have a mustad one but it isnt waterproof so wondering if any of you guys have one or have an idea of which one to go for. The mustad i have is a 35litre which can take everything including my waterproof jacket so a bigger one may be overkill ( i did like the titan rucksack but it is 70 litres+ which would look silly if i had to take the jacket out probably). Anyway, grateful for any ideas/suggestions.

Have a look on e-bay.

bought a north face 35 litre 100% waterproof and better than the mustads etc as it is dsigned to be on your back for a long time...very comfortable and loads of support...only paid £25

much easier if your off around the gower, or taking a long walk to morfa etc

I've got the Shakespeare Salt - it's the dogs doodahs. It's like the tardis, you can get loads in it - a great piece of kit ! I think theres a shop on a certain site that sells them at about £15 - great value.

Hi mate, if you are looking to ease back problems then yes a rucksack will spread the load better than a seat box! But my suggestion would be to go for a smaller capacity one. The bigger the bag the more stuff you are likely to shove in it that you don't really need. back last year I started a thread on how much gear people take with them and it was quite an eye opener when you actually work out how much stuff you take but don't really need.
I would follow what Lazy Hooker has to say as in my opinion so called specialist salt water angling rucksacks are not very well made and you are much better at looking at a proper hiking one!

i use the titan one with a coolbait pocket at the front end it's ok plenty of space waterproof and well made only thing i dont like about them is you cannot sit on them lol and i find nowadays after a long sesh it's nice to sit down.

that said i'll be using the titan at chesil at the rematch i dont think i'll take my box. in my opinion dont sell or get rid of your box cos you'll miss it..

I have the Ian golds one.
https://www.veals.co.uk/acatalog/___Ian_Golds_Tackle.html

& I swear by it. More compartments & pockets than you can shake a stick at, plenty of net pockets on the outside.
Made by an angler for an angler so there are pockets long enough for a baiting needle etc & each outside surface has pockets so you don't really need to rummage deep into a bottomless pit to find things.
I do agree with trying to get a smaller one though although I'm not very good at not taking much tackle.
The only downside-which goes for all rucksacks is that you can't really sit on them!

Thank you all for your advice. I will be getting a rucksack on certain marks but have to be honest, i went out last night with the mustad one and the thing that really hit me was not being able to sit down to carve up the bait ( squid and chop the sandeels) on the chopping boad. Kneeling down would soon see off the knees of my titan clothing. I think i must be getting really old !
I guess i will try to modify the box back rest to make it a bit more comfy. Must admit i like the weight tray and the reel holders inside as well. The trays keep all tools handy in one place too. Guess both would be best of both worlds eh ! thanks again boys ( and no, i didnt catch anything again, for the 5th time ! DOH !!!!).

If you have the break away conversion at the moment have you thought about the
Anyfish Anywhere Box Pak

Bit pricey but they say they are really comfy in the write ups. Never tried one my self and dont know any one who has one either

i have seen it online but never contempated it. I will now though. Thanks for jogging my memory. If i get one i will do a write up on it. ( can i compare products on the site or is there legal technicalities of doing so ?
The only problem i can think of with this box pak is that the webbing will be sitting in water or sand sometimes and that there is no backrest for it.

Two good points and the price is the biggest put off but it does look comfy
