    I was looking at the hardcore timber blind bag an thinking I would like it has anyone tried it or have any opinions on it? What is your favorite bag for walking in or taking on the kayak?

    I always go with a quality backpack. They can do everything a blind bag can do and more, far more useful. Being able to throw it over my shoulder OR wear it like a pack makes a backpack a hands down better choice. I had the Cabelas rucksack but it was a bit large for me, otherwise it was a great pack. Even used a cheap $20 fieldline from Walmart for a while and it worked great.

    If you're looking for a made in the USA product, search Harrell and sons on the book of face. Waxed canvas, handmade, real hardware.

    I agree with the Backpack. Makes it more of a multi use item. Something I have also done is put a contractors plastic bag inside my pack (have several packs) and it allows me to near totally waterproof my stuff from everything. Weighs less than an ounce.

    I use plastic box when boating in or needing a seat on walk-ins, and a German army surplus day pack for walk-ins where I'll not need a seat. Once heard one of my hunters ask his buddy if he'd noticed guides don't use blind bags, and while I doubt that's universally so, it seems the rule at our camp.
