Product Test: Elite Kevin Vandam Signature Series Bag

Published in the July 2013 Issue July 2013 Brady L. Kay

I’m just guessing, but I would think Kevin VanDam has companies throwing money at him on a daily basis and begging the four-time Bassmaster Classic champion and seven-time B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year, to endorse their products. But in this case, I can actually see VanDam using and believing in the Plano Elite Kevin VanDam Signature Series Bag. Why? Because it really is the ideal size for times your friend calls you from the lake and says, “The bite is on. Get here now.”

I’ve acquired a few tackle totes over the years that are scattered throughout my boat’s storage compartments as well as garage. So something like this is ideal for those times when you only need a few choice baits.

Plano’s new Elite series bag is for the angler on the go, who needs everything yet doesn’t want to tote a luggage-sized tackle bag around. It’s medium in size, fits well on a shelf, yet can be filled with every essential piece of tackle no matter what type of fishing you do.

Probably the one feature I like the most about it is that it’s well-designed without a millimeter of wasted space.

Ranging in four different sizes, we tested the 3700 model, which at 23.5 inches long by 14.5 inches wide and 14 inches tall, is the largest in the series. The unit comes pre-packed with five 3750 ProLatch StowAway utility boxes, which are perfect for loading with lures of most any size and shape, and sports four zippered pockets, three external pockets and multiple interior pockets perfect for sunglasses, scents and tools. Sporting the signature of the world’s most esteemed angler, the Elite KVD Bag retails for just $99.99.

Whether you get that last-minute call, are about to take a fly-in fishing trip into the bush or just want a tackle storage system for everyday angling, this new Elite Kevin VanDam Signature Series Bag from Plano is worthy of a closer look.
