Tactical Wonders From Wychwood
More camo-detailed loveliness from Wychwood, this time designed to take care of your rods, shelter and nets (plural for the prolific haulers out there)
THE BIG QUESTIONS
This old-school camo has caught my eye! What have we got here?
Wychwood have definitely nailed their camo pattern, haven’t they! But this isn’t a case of style over substance; the new Tactical HD Quiver Foldall has plenty of neat design features.
Foldall? Have not heard that before…
It’s a nod to the unique roll-top design that secures this quiver’s main compartment. It provides quick access, keeps dirt and water out and offers flexibility when it comes to what you store in that space. It’s capable of housing a small shelter, but most anglers are likely to stuff it with nets and slings. As its name suggests, it’s a quiver come rod holdall—all the lovely rod protection of a traditional, well-padded rod holdall, but the lightweight and flexibility of a quiver.
Sounds neat. What other storage is there?
There’s an external lead pocket, which is very handy to stop 3oz bombs crashing against your precious rod blanks in transit, plus a large zipped compartment and an internal mesh pocket for essentials. The Quiver Foldall is designed to take three made-up rods, and each reel is given plenty of protection in a large padded pouch.
Anything else I need to know?
The shoulder strap is very comfortable and the whole item is made from extra-strong 1200D material, with that camo pattern we’ve already agreed looks spot on! But if you don’t want the comparative bulk of a quiver, there’s something else you might like.
The Tactical HD Rod Sleeves have the same camo design and offer lightweight but durable protection for 9 and 10ft rods and/or 12-13ft rods. The simple but effective over-fit design means there are no zips in which to get your line tangled. The padded rod sock is connected to the reel pouch with a simple toggle system which can be easily adjusted to suit the overall length and handle positioning on your rod. Each sleeve has a padded carry strap and features oversized clips so they can be clipped together to carry all your rods as a set. A zipped lead pocket is a nice touch and that 1200D material will last for years.
