Recovery Gear Bag | LOADED WITH FEATURES!! This heavy-duty triple layer gear bag earned the nickname "The Papa Bear" for good reason!  Where do we even start!?  This purpose-built bag is perfect for storage and transportation of all your recovery gear and accessories.  The main compartment includes a removable yellow liner and side storage nest with collapsible safety flap.  This flap houses a piece of heavy duty polystyrene that protects whatever you place in the side nest.  After loading up the nest with your important items like inflators, winch controllers, etc. secure the flap with the velcro strips on the top of it and the bag.  The main compartment has air vents on both sides to allow for some air movement.  Don't let damp items sit in a fully enclosed bag to get all nasty and start to break down.  These vents help prevent a stinky surprise when you forget to air out your gear after some time on the trails.

Two side pouches are easily accessible by adjustable velcro straps.  Perfect for storage for steel shackles, snatch blocks, tools, gloves, or whatever other must have items you carry.  The front side zippered pouch serves as another great compartment to store quick access items that need to be separated from everything else.  The backside zippered pocket is perfect for items like maps, guides, booklets, gloves, etc.  Tie down loops on all 4 top exterior corners are perfect for securing the bag during transit and prevent flying bags when the trails get rough!  The underside of the lid features a heavy duty rubberized mesh pocket also perfect for smaller items that you need quick and easy access to. With its triple layer design this bag is designed to carry whatever load you throw at it.  Full wrap handles are sewn into the entire body of the bag making it possible to carry heavy loads without stressing them out.  A 3x15 inch loop velcro piece on the top of the lid allows you to add a several patches to customize your bag, and let you know what is inside.  The overall design of this bag and lid style allow you to fully open the top and see the entire body and its contents.  Topside centered zippers require you to hold the top open while trying to see what is inside.  This bag solves that problem and is designed so that it is not only easy to load and un-load, but to easy find exactly what you are looking for.  MADE IN THE USA.

great bag

The quality of the bag is top notch, I have two other rope recovery bags but wanted something a bit deeper for oddly sized items and this bag doesn’t disappoint. Size wise it fits easily into the front passenger floorboard of a 2016 Tacoma with the top of it at almost the height of the cushion. You simply can’t beat the quality or price of any of the bags from step22
