The Rapala Urban Classic Sling Bag 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.
Description: a bag for roving anglers, especially lure enthusiasts.
Specifications: two zipped main compartments, each containing Plano 3600 tackle boxes, both of which open to form a supported tray; internal mesh pocket; the bag can be swung around, from the back to the front, for easy access; secondary compartment for other accessories; retracting tool holder; pliers holster; easy-access shoulder pocket; finished in Digi-Camo Print and Black colours.
My verdict: I like the look of this sling bag, and I reckon it’ll find favour with lure anglers on the move.
It’ll hold all of your essential terminal tackle, and ensure that it’s all to-hand, without having to remove the bag.
Swinging the main compartment around, from your back to your chest, you can unzip the main pockets, to form a shelf for the tackle boxes, supplied, to sit on.
You’ll then be able to pick out accessories from the boxes and make any rig adjustments using the retractable tool holder, before getting back to your fishing.
This adjustable bag looks comfortable to wear and carry, even if it’s off your shoulder. I reckon it’s ideal for organised, grab-and-go anglers.
