How do the bags that are for the gu wingers hold up?
I haul mine most days to work and they are exposed to the sun most of the day.
Any suggestions? What do you guys use?

I do not use the bags, instead I built a box that sits on my four wheeler trailer. It has slots that the wingers fit into. This keeps them from flopping around. The rest of the area is for the buckets of dummies, bumper boy, blinds and everything else you use for training. This way all I have to do when I get home from work is hook the trailer up and get the dog(s) loaded into the truck. I use to put them in my back seat but the doors are all scratched up now. I even put a hole in one of the doors. Its still a work in progress but it beats buying a 10,000+ dog trailer...

I actually bought Zinger bags for my SOGs several years ago. Had to do a little bit of repair work over the years, but they've held up OK. I turn the SOG upside down before pulling the bag over - this way, the sharp end of the legs are not against the zipper.

The bags make carrying them out into the field much easier and keep the sun off the bands when not in use.
