Erik, I have been known to use buckets as well, but for something I can just grab and run out the door with, that has my electronics and such all organized, I love a good gear bag! One of my other favorites for carrying bumpers is one of those reuseable cloth grocery store wine bags... the ones that you can fit 6 bottles of wine in? I find they work great!

I have a couple of the those that are made like a backpack, every year when I go to our Nat sales meeting for work, I pick up a few at the vendor show. I have some really nice ponds that I use for swim by and channel blinds but its a long walk to get to and that style works well. Avery makes a bumper bag which I like the idea because its mesh for drainage and straps to throw over the shoulder but i have problems with it ripping at the seams http://www.gundogsupply.com/avery-bumperbirdbag.html
