Plano’s zipperless, weather-endurable Z-Series Tackle Backpack and Wrap get a bold new look
Plano, IL (2018) – Salt, sun and spray can send lesser tackle bags to an early grave. How? By attacking their vulnerable zippers and rendering them useless. That’s why Plano engineers eliminated these weak links in their trouble-free weather-defying Z-Series Soft Tackle Bags, Tackle Backpack and Tackle Wrap, which debuted to the universal delight of anglers at ICAST in 2016. These no-fuss zipper-free Z-Series tackle storage designs have quickly become recognized for their exceptional weather-resistance, infallible reliability and overall efficiency.
For 2018, Plano’s proven Z-Series Tackle Backpack features the same great performance, but with brand new aesthetics that reflect its premium functionality. The angler-favorite Z-Series Tackle Backpack now features sizzling Kryptek Raid camouflage with striking blue accents.
Plano Z-Series Tackle Backpack
Perfect for kayak anglers, expedition anglers, or anyone who needs to transport tackle while keeping their hands free, Plano’s Z-Series Tackle Backpack is the ultimate technical angling pack – a standout offering in the weather-resistant line of advanced, zipperless Z-Series tackle storage designs.
Featuring the same high-performance Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) waterproof fabric in striking Kryptek Raid with blue trim worn by other new Z-Series products, the Z-Series Tackle Backpack also utilizes easy opening HDPE buckles and reliable Velcro to secure flaps, pockets and mesh slip pockets.
A healthy main compartment is accessed through the bag’s top, and provides capacity for up to four included 3700-size StowAway tackle boxes. A speedy cinch-cord provides initial closure, while a large flap secured by buckles and Velcro tightly covers the opening to prevent moisture intrusion.
The front of the Z-Series Tackle Backpack features an additional lower flap that opens to access a tool holder and drop-down, see-through, wrap-style pocket that’s perfect for housing hot baits, keys, smartphones or other angling essentials. Three additional large pockets are found on the bag’s exterior – one on each side, and a third beneath the front flap – featuring buckle and Velcro closures. These pockets provide secure storage for reels, line spools, sunglasses or other items.
A dream to wear, the Z-Series Tackle Backpack features comfortable and fully adjustable shoulder straps and padded lumbar support. One strap features a readily accessible tool holder, while the other sports a handy mesh slip pocket.
