Seems well built and lots of space

Just got mine yesterday and moved all my tackle into it. This bag holds a lot of stuff. The straps are really comfortable and seem fairly sturdy to carry the weight. I carry way more than I can possible use in a year but I would hate to not have a piece of tackle when I need it so we will see if it can handle the weight over time. I will update this in 6 months or so. But I feel pretty good about its durability by the way its built.
