Rated 4 out of 5 by PhilipB Looks great
When I received it, it looked and felt nice, heavy duty and functional. Unfortunately the snap in the handle was broken and I returned it. Unfortunately it is now back ordered for several months. So I look forward to receiving a new one.

I researched and this is the best one for flying. With airlines you never know when you will get hassled with carry-ons. With this one:
a) If you have a bag your rod tubes will fit in, then this bag can fold. Put your rods in checked and fold this up. Don't worry, even though foldable it is very sturdy.
b) Unlike competing cases, this one allows you to put your rods (3) in their tubes. So, again if you can't get by the agent, this one could be checked and your rods would be safe in their tubes.
c) It looks great.
BTW - have never had a problem using as carry-on after buying. Just paranoid when it comes to airlines and if you did have a problem you seldom have recourse and still catch your flight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FishingAlaska Great Travel Bag
Just purchased this rod case for an Alaska Salmon fishing trip for this summer, I used it on two short range trips in the area and easily handled all my equipment needs. The case's main compartment has plenty of room for two rod cases and my collapsible net, The side pockets easily protected my reels and fly box. Nice purchase for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PatrickinConn Excellent bag, just wish it was a little bigger
I had a state trooper warn me about too much fishing equipment in the car. I thought putting rods in something like this would help make the back of the car look less like a rummage sale. It does. Handy for short two and three day trips too. I just wish it was a little longer ? I have a couple of three-piece rods and the tubes are about four inches too long for the bag. Otherwise excellent all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NHflytyer Quality Product
I was not sure this would meet my needs as their are a lot of bags on the market to protect fly rods while traveling. This bag is much better than the others. It is very padded, put together with superior craftsmanship and is great looking. I expect that this bag is going to hold up great. It will hold 3 rod tubes and has ample room for fly boxes. I can easily put my fly tying vise and supplies in this as well. Its a hidden gem of a bag!

Rated 4 out of 5 by eltoro Retro and Awsome
I got this for a fishing trip out west in Sept. but I can see using it all the time around home waters too. Very utilitarian and retro cool as well but then I use wood X cntry skiis and a bamboo fly rod. Only down side I see is that it is flexible and soft sided so rod tubes or PVC pipe stiffeners will be advisable if there is any chance of rough handling. Building the case with some sort of hard liners in the sides would be an improvement. There's enough space for all the reels, fly boxes, gadgets for my trip west or locally. It will go as carry on. As always Bean is a great company to deal with, never any hassles.
