Rated 5 out of 5 by WinFly A Sixth Star
In June, I ordered three of the reel cases and, as the other reviews state, measure carefully. I meant to order mediums, inadvertently ordered smalls, which didn't fit even the spool of my smallest reel. That said, when Joe helped me straighten out my order (long story, but it was complicated), I really appreciated the quality of the cases. Mediums fit my spare spools fine, as well as my smallest reel. The sixth star is for Joe--he ensured I remain a Bean customer.

This is no doubt the best reel case I own! Quality construction throughout, durable and classic design, and weatherproof. I have three medium cases and one small. When ordering be sure to measure your reel for diameter and height. The small reel case is very small and does not fit any of my reels but it makes a great fly pouch.

You never know from LL Bean you will find a solution to a problem. I had been looking for a small case into which I could put my hearing aids together with a spare set of batteries and a cleaning brush while traveling. This handsome little case is just the right size and the soft lining inside gives just the right kind of protection. And it is different enough that I will not overlook it on the nightstand when I go to pack in the morning. It even has a place inside for my name!

Nicest reeel case I own. Tremendous value.

Another homerun for L.L.Bean. Excellent protection for reel from dust, drops, and scratches. Smallest is very small, as my Redington Drift 2/3 barely fits in it. I got one of each size, now I can try new reels before I order again.

I have 4 reel cases: 2 medium and 2 small. They look great and are very sturdy and well built. They are nicer than the cases I've received with any of my expensive reels. As mentioned by multiple reviewers, you have to be aware of the sizing. Even with the warning, I still overestimated the size for my first case. So measure ahead of time.

Very nice reel case. Be sure to measure your reel both for diameter and height. The size small case is very small. Better to order a size larger. Quality is excellent.

Excellent little pouch; the waxed canvas and leather exterior is so traditional looking, and tough, and the zipper feels strong. I have two sizes and probably will buy a third. I don't actually need them for storing reels---the sherpa lining makes for a handy fly wallet and I prefer the zippered case to the standard folding wallet because barbless flies can't escape. Plus the roomy interior allows for a candy tin full of panfish poppers and extra stuff. A small flybox would fit easily. Works great.

Great product. I got this reel case recently and it is really well made. Very durable and looks absolutely great as well.
One word of caution: the diameters of the cases given on the web page are OUTSIDE diameters - not INSIDE diameters. Hence, if you're buying this for a three inch reel DO NOT buy the case that's listed as three inches - it won't fit. Buy the one that's 3 1/2 and it will fit. That's really my only gripe with the product. It's far better than any reel case I've received with reels from the factories, and I've got some pretty expensive reels. This is a wonderful product and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
