Also very nice is, that the shoulder strap as well as the wrist loop are padded comfortably. So you can transport your rods safely and comfortably, even on longer distances.

D.A.M. 8302175 Rod Bag in rod bag test

The display D.A.M. 8302175 Rod Bag Rod Bag is in the middle price segment. It easily offers space for up to 4 mounted rods and has the following dimensions: 175 cm x 18 cm x 25 cm. Therefore it is slightly smaller than the two rod bags presented first.

This rod bag is also nylon. The material is therefore very durable. Especially when you are travelling in difficult terrain, this can sometimes be a blessing for your rods. The colour is a little bit brownish and it is very different from the other rod bags. The bag can be divided into two parts. This allows the rods to be transported separately. A nice additional option I think.
