Rated 4 out of 5áby Swab I like it
I have an older fly box like this and wanted another. It is light weight, floats, and roomy. I like it for larger flies like streamers, leeches, woolly buggers, sculpins, and bass flies.
The only criticism is the outer covering is a fabric, which could be a stiffer polystyrene that would make it more rigid, easier to keep clean and perhaps more durable. But that is just my preference. Overall it functions exactly as I want. I use C&F, and Wheatley for nymphs and dry flies, but this Morell is perfect for my streamers. I love the foam consistency.

áby HOTSCOT FLY BOX
Perfect for a day's fishing. Ripple on one side, flat on the other. It floats giving you a chance to get a dropped box. Someone will net it for you as you follow it downstream. Just what I wanted.

It's light, holds a lot of easily accessible flies and floats.
What more can one ask of a fly box?

Rated 5 out of 5áby IXOYEfollower Fine fly box
It holds and presents flies well, closes securely, and floats. The price is reasonable compared to others and it has held up well in my fishing vest.

Rated 2 out of 5áby gee4u Light and flimsy
Not sure how durable this will be. A bit difficult to use. The lightness could be an asset but makes it hard to grasp. The flimsy and pliable nature makes me think it won't be durable. Would not buy again.

áby rapidriverrise Perfect little boxes at a good price
I have a bunch of these fly boxes in several sizes and nothing I have tried is better for small nymphs and drys. They are easy to open/close and I like the ribbed foam for fast and easy exchange of flies. I build stream specific assortments and getting myself organized and out the door is quick and easy. Not to mention that the price is affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5áby philbeanfan Great size, super price !
Fits comfortably in Kennebec chest pack. Lid inner foam is not ribbed for fly storage, rather it allows clearance for fluffy or tall flies. Sturdy construction and super light weight (will float if dropped in water). Won't rust. Hinge is fabric, unsure how long it will last but duct tape can repair it if it fails. Magnets hold box closed and work very well. Flexible enough that it will not crush (haven't tried sitting on it).

The construction of this box leaves it so light that a gust of wind will carry it away. Also those cold mornings when the fingers don't work well, (it is hard to hang onto). When product was received rust from the magnets was visible. The hinge is only the fabric that is pressed onto the foam. Life of the box will depend upon the strenght of the fabric.
