    Don't float without it.

    Instead of constantly juggling all kinds of gear, keep everything in one place in the Simms Dry Creek 27-41L Boat Bag. Designed with extensive research by Simms developers and professional guides (not that they minded doing the testing), this bag is the perfect storage unit for floating trips, and it comes in two different sizes to accommodate all your boating needs.

    Ultra-durable TPU-coated fabric is completely waterproof, and the magnetized Catch & Release buckle keeps the lid securely closed when the bag isn't completely zippered shut. When the lid is closed, a compression-molded overhanging lid repels water. The two removable fly box pockets on the sides are designed to sync with Simms wading belts for when you find a patch of water that you want to stop and fish for a few hours. Exterior tool docking stations offer easy access to pliers and nippers, and the detachable shoulder strap can be used to lock the bag down to the boat.

    • Waterproof protection and intuitive storage for boat trips
    • TPU-coated fabric with welded seams withstands submersion
    • Catch & Release lid closes magnetically for convenience
    • Compression molded lid is smash- and waterproof
    • Removable fly box pockets attach to Simms wading belts
    • Exterior tool docking stations on sides
    • Detachable shoulder strap secures bag to boat
    • Item #SMM00B4

    Rugged & detailed for pro's

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The detail and thought put into this bag is unprecedented. For those that are on the water as pro's or otherwise for extended periods, this bag is an serious support. Stable enough for clients to step, or fall on and not do damage, Water tight even with the top zipper not closed. Holds a grundle of fly and streamer boxes along with additional gear. Ability to compartmentalize the bag with velcro straps is extremely helpful in organizing and separating different elements.


    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Stuff it and leave it! Note, I bought the large and it is LARGE! If you fish out of a boat and like to take the kitchen sink here you go! The front latch is awesome, pops in by itself and stays put. This lives in my boat and rarely comes out. Plenty of room for rain shell, DSLR, snacks, YETI etc. You can fit a MFC Boat box but you’ll have to check dimensions for other manufacturers. Simms is bombproof!

    Perfect Boat Bag

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a perfect boat bag that is waterproof all the way around. With a zipper seal on top and magnetic buckle, this is perfect as a drift boat bag that will hold all of your tackle in an inch of standing water. The top is very well thought out with both a zipper and a top that overhangs the zippered seal thus providing even more protection from rain and waves for anything you are carrying.

    Little touches like the pockets in the dividers, one hand magnetic buckle, and smartly designed top make this another winning Simms product.

    I got the large which is ideal for carrying extra reels, tons of fly boxes, a portable GPS, phone, water purifier and a number of tippet spools.

    Better than all the rest...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have used this boat bag over the last 3 years as a fly fishing guide and it has been incredible. From the back of the truck to floating on the river, this bag keeps everything organized and dry. The design is well thought out, and the overall quality of everything is second to none.

    I have had this on the boat in the rain, with water on the floor of the boat and all of my gear made it to the end of the day without getting soaked. I highly recommend this bag to everyone!

    Rock the Boat, Bag!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This bag is an essential for your floating endeavors. It is the perfect boat bag. It can sit in water, get stepped on, and the self locking latch is the coolest thing ever! The magnetic lock makes getting in and out of this bad larry a breeze. We all know how vital it is to be able to quickly access our fly boxes/accessories while also having a dependable closure system. I highly recommend this for anyone fishing out of a boat. The medium easily holds 10 standard boxes as well as gink, dust, tippet, chapstick, anything you don't want floating around the boat or laying out to be caught by flyline. Fly fishing people, buy this, you will be stoked!

    In a SxS comparison with the Orvis boat bag, the SIMMS won. I have the large Simms boat bag. Both hold nearly the same amount (even tho Orvis is wider/longer, the Simms is taller). While the dividers attach via velcro making for easy very customizable sections, they are not as sturdy as Orvis' slot and drop dividers. I preferred more customizable over sturdy. Also the Simms dividers (2) each had a pocket (1 expandable and 1 zippered) for the little things vs small zippered pockets in the lid like the Orvis. I like the one big zippered pocket on the lid, perfect for holding long needle nose pliers and small bolt cutters (I use this bag for river floats for musky, carp, smallies and large mouth). Nothing beats being able to just pick this thing up (sturdy handle on lid--Orvis doesn't have one). What is KEY is the magnetic knob that just LOCKS into place making it easy to close it and pick it up without having to zipper it. That's where the Orvis really lost out. I'd been using waterproof sling packs and backpacks and a couple of Filson totes to get all my gear on the raft. Now it's just this boat bag, fly box and go! I DID have one issue with the strap connection points. I attached a zinger to it and the heat + the constant pulling did cause the adhered strap ring to come loose. Just some crazy glue and BAM it was good as new. Now I attach the zinger to the lid handle and all is well. Highly recommend this boat bag. Don't do a lot of trout float trips here in Virginia, but I'm sure this would do fine. Don't get me wrong I love Orvis rods (2 H2s in the photo), but this boat bag was just the one.

    Unanswered Question

    1) This is completely waterproof?
    2) Any pictures of the interior? Is it totally open, or are there internal compartments?
