    I'm not sure how large this one is, but how cool to have a completely waterproof compartment for today's key fobs and expensive cell phones!

    Floating Blind Bag-Large

    Product ID: : DW351

    Drake’s Floating Blind Bags are the most hunter-friendly and well-planned blind bags on the market. We took the same approach to designing this bag as we have our innovative apparel. After having used blind bags for years, like we do all our products, we sat down and asked ourselves what we like and don’t like about using the blind bags on the market today. After you take a look at all the thought and details, you will quickly see that this bag is leading the pack.

    Both our Large and XL Blind bags are loaded with pockets for organizing your gear so you can find it. Our size Large bag has over 18 pockets and our XL has over 20 pockets. The main storage compartment is protected by 2 liners as extra insurance to prevent leaks. With a seam-welded vinyl internal liner overlayed with our vinyl organizer, we’ve gone the distance in creating a waterproof compartment from the bottom to the zipper.

    Construction:
    PVC Backed 900 denier Polyester • 5 Panels of Closed Cell “Flotation” Foam & Padding • Organizer Liner & Internal Waterproof Liner

    Dimensions:

    Lg – 18” Wide x 11” High x 10” Deep

    Sounds plenty large enough. Those Dokkens actually take up a little bit of room, LOL!

    Do you have the measurements or do you know how many big bumpers could fit inside?
    Darn, this is reminding me that I have to replace my Dokkens and bumpers too! (sigh)

    (I wish I had a bag of smelly old ducks in the van when they stole it instead of all of my good stuff)

    Take a look at the canvas tool bags at Home Depot or Lowes. They come in many sizes and have lots of pockets and compartments. You can see them before you buy.

    I gave one of the people I train with the brown Mud River bag and she pointed out to me that she liked it because the interior liner was orange and she could see the contents inside the bag, where the dark liners in most bags made it difficult to find things.

    I've got an older Avery pro trainer bag like this one, http://www.averysportingdog.com/products/TravelGear.php It's got the mesh bag attached for bumpers/dokkens, etc.
    Husband bought it for me for xmas one year and I used it one season, it's fine, just not something I use for hauling gear so it's been in my garage for 3-4 years. If it is like your old one that you're looking to replace, pm me.

    All of the Drake bags are "lit"...they have a light that turns on and off inside the bag so you can see whats inside.

    The Orange Home Depot 5 Gallon bucket are orange inside. Makes it easy to see the bumpers. They have a white plastic handle over metal wire with ergonomic finger grooves. Leave your cell phone in your truck to keep it dry. Best place for it on a training day.

    About $5.

    Plastic grocery sacks come in a variety of trending colors and sometimes season prints?
