The Saber Tackle DPM Luggage comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.
THE Saber Tackle DPM (Disruptive Pattern Material) Luggage range looks set to sell well, with its good looks and keen pricing. Here are three of the products that have caught my eye.
The 12 ft 6 in. Rod Holdall will take three rods made up and three broken down, without reels. There is hard case protection for big pit reels, and added protection for 50 mm butt rings. You get a padded internal divider, to protect your rod blanks, and there are zippered, easy access pockets on the outside for a landing net and storm poles, with a shorter pocket for banksticks etc.
Made from the same hardwearing, water resistant, DPM Armour material, the 90-litre Rucksack can be accessed from the top or the front, so you can also use it as a barrow bag.
As well as six good-sized, zipped, external compartments for storing accessories, there are a multitude of mesh pockets inside and out, and a good-sized main compartment for camera, cooking gear and bulkier supplies.
It’s comfortable to carry as a rucka, and Saber have added three neoprene handles, for manoeuvering it about at close range – always handy. Not bad at all for under £60.
Great as a floater or stalking bag, the Saber DPM Bucket Seat Carryall ticks a lot of boxes for me. It’ll take an 18-litre bucket, to convert it to a comfortable seat, complete with padded, zipped lid.
Add the big tackle box pocket on the front, more mesh pockets for a couple of Spombs or ‘catties’, and a padded shoulder strap and carry handle and you’ve got a tidy little bag offering a lot for your money.
Prices: 12 ft 6 in. Holdall £59.99; Rucksack/Barrowbag £59.99; Bucket Seat Carryall £39.99.
