    That is a nice back pack. IMO, one of the best tackle boxes for the money is a plastic tool box.
    * cheap (usually < $20) and widely available
    * Built tough to handle the weight of tools -- Ive got 50-60# of jigs, hooks, sinkers, etc. in mine
    * water resistant to help ward of deckhands with a deck hose, sea spray, or rain shower.

    I agree that there are quality bags -outside of the fishing industry- that work for jig bags and tackle carriers.

    My brother got me away from an old metal tool box and showed me that the new heavy duty nylon bags were lighter and just as tough.

    Here's one from a local hardware store:

    I picked up a Craftsman tool bag at a flea market for $2. you could probably put #50 of jigs in it and not hurt it in the least. :D

    I got mine at Harbor Freight. It is ideal when you have to fly. Folds up and the tackle goes in with the clothes.
