Gear review - Frontierplay drop bag

I received my frontierplay drop bag and it is solid. There are many of these on the market but none that I saw for the price - 45 dollars. The mesh is heavy duty and the 8 straps travel the underside of the bag providing ample support. The cam buckles are different than others, but I like them. I tied some paracord onto the hole at the end of the cams for ease of adjustment and they work great. About 15 inches wide and 40 inches long, it will provide ample storage space. Can't say enough good things about Darren. Without a doubt the best customer service I have experienced in this industry. If you need a drop bag but don't want to pay big bucks, this one should work very well for you. A frontierplay dry box with updated latches is on the way and I will post a review when I get it.

I've got one of each, bag/box they do seem to be solid. I'm sure all the haters who have never seen one,used one or who think buying non brand name stuff is stupid will soon surface to say how much they suck.

Got their dry box a couple of years ago, and still solid. Great for personal use (Grand Canyon, Westwater, Deso, Cataract) but not quite bomber enough for commercial work. Ditto about customer service: the latches came ungreased (their oversight), and Darren suggested best ways to make it work. After two years, one failed, and he sent me a new pair, free of charge including shipping. Worth every penny, and then some. They are keeping this affordable for me.

How dare you buy anything not sewn by the gentle artisan hands of American virgins!

(just kidding, haha. I have one too and it's a great bag. Darren comp'd me one of the pre-production models for feedback a few years ago since I've bought so much through him over the years. Zero issues with the bag and it stays loaded in my boat on the trailer all season.)

Well dont mean to hate the haters...but its hard. The last time I said something good about my drybox from Frontierplay it got bashed. So thats what I've come to expect.
