Tactically Astute

Wychwood just keep on delivering (and—remarkable—at a fabulous price point, too)


Whoever is in charge of sourcing and selecting materials at Wychwood, take a bow. Time after time in recent years the company just seem to get it spot on. The HD ripstop material used on shelters like the MHR MK2 Brolly is up there with the best around, and now they’ve dropped a load of Tactical HD luggage with some of the toughest (and best looking) fabric you’ll ever see. 

1. Tactical HD Bedchair Bag 
Decked out in Wychwood’s military-inspired camouflage and treated to that super-tough material—it’s 1200D, twice as thick as many rival angling ranges—this bedchair bag is built to take plenty of abuse. It has multiple handles for easy loading into your vehicle and can be fitted with an optional shoulder strap (sold separately). Crucially, the main opening is fitted with double zips and it opens fully for faff-free use. It’s designed for use with most bedchairs and sleep systems on the market and the adjustable straps mean you can create a snug fit with just about any bed. £39.99 


2. Tactical HD Cool Bag 
The Cool Bag is the ideal product to look at when discussing Wychwood’s 1200D material. ‘D’ stands for denier and is a measure of thickness, and there aren’t many luggage ranges in angling with this type of thickness. It has an almost square weave to it and instantly feels like it’ll last forever. This cool bag has a large capacity (it measures 30cm cubed), comfy carry handles and double zips for easy opening. It’s foil-lined for insulation, too. £22.99

3. Tactical Bits and Bobs Bag 
This is as simple as luggage products get, but it’s pretty damn useful nonetheless. Designed as a hard-wearing open-topped carrier bag, it’s ideal for stuffing in all those awkward items that don’t fit anywhere else—or for filling with food at the supermarket on the way to your session. At 40cm long, 40cm wide and 20cm deep it’s also big enough to carry a pair of waders to and from your swim before hanging them out to dry properly. £19.99


4. Tactical HD Bankware Roll 
This neat little roll-up sleeve has plenty of pockets, straps and loops in which to keep your banksticks, buzzer bars, bobbins and spare batteries. It feels really solid and protective and is pre-creased to fold up and unfurl perfectly every time. There are eight bankstick slides, internal mesh pockets and plenty of other slimline storage space. The addition of a hanging hook, for use in your bivvy once empty, would’ve made it even better. £14.99
