When you need a travel carry system to hold all of the necessary gear, The Grand Teton will do the job. The separate bottom compartment is designed to securely hold six 4-piece rod tubes. This is in addition to your boots, waders, smaller nets, and much more. The upper main compartment for your clothing and other travel gear can be accessed from the interior clamshell opening for easy packing or from the top of the bag for easier access while traveling. There is just the right amount of organization outside and within, and it all comes to you in a lighter package than ever offered before!
