These are great, only negative is they are just a couple of inches to short for big baits

In the end, it’s not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away

Look up Eddie Turner's website, he has a small green coolbag, worth a look.

Forget what the tackle shops sell, overpriced and the wrong size.

Instead use a zip top insualted bottle cooler, they are the right size to take whole herring or mackerel and will keep 6-8 baits frozen for 6hours or more if you wrap them in newspaper first. They come with a handle and some even a sling if you look around.
At £3 a yime you can buy one throw it away in mid March.

I was going to suggest a cheapo eBay cool bag, but those are only £1 more for Shimano! Very reasonable postage too. Great link! :thumbs:

I’ve used those shimano ones for years, and they are a great size for a day out. You have to chop the heads off large blueys to get them in, which is the only negative i have of them.

Oh loads, easily 30 I’d say

I usually take a packet of blueys, smelt, herring, 7 or 8 sardines, a couple of pollen and some roach and lamprey for a day.

I use the Cotswold Aquarius mini cool bags - perfect when you don't want to take too much with you and fit neatly into the top of the rucksack. They have a flap on the inside of the bag for an ice block. Very well made, insulates better than ANY cool bag I have ever owned, easy to clean, have a very tough waterproof base and come with a detachable carry strap, so remove that if placing into the rucksack. Can't really see anything that comes close to these. Two of them go into the larger deluxe cool bag and three into the maxi bag, both again have an internal flap for ice blocks, detachable strap and also, some extra storage... OK, these are a little 'pricey' but they'll last for a very long time and are simply the best. I've got 3 x mini and one of each deluxe and maxi bags... great system, great gear.

I ordered two and they arrived today from Bobco. One is a pressie for a mate, but the first thing I did with mine was cut the waist strap off as it compressed some of the internal space. The zipped cover for the strap will make a handy pocket to keep a small knife in - exactly where it is needed.

£5 each + 1.99 postage for the pair was a bargain! :thumbs:

Except it’s not ‘basically crap’?

Those CA bags are good bits of kit, but at £40 they are luxuries. There’s nothing wrong with people buying good quality products at good prices, get off your gold plated horse. Honestly, I genuinely struggle with a lot of what you say.

I got one of the Pike pro larger ones end of last season. Nive innovation to be able to reduce the bag internal air gap via the compression straps. Biger than required by the OP but worth a look. £24 though.
