Plano's New Z-Series Technical Tackle Backpack

Plano's Z-series Technical Tackle Backpack Eliminates Problem-prone Zippers

Plano, IL – Great fishing is where you find it. Sometimes, it's waiting right at the end of the dock. Other times, it's the reward at the end of a lengthy journey by foot, bike, kayak or dugout canoe. Regardless of where your angling adventures lead, Plano's new Z-Series Technical Tackle Backpack will carry all the tackle you'll need in one hands-free, worry-free package.

Sun, salt and stress take their toll on zippers, which are prone to premature failure in some tackle bag designs. Thankfully, Plano takes your mental health seriously. Their solution? Eliminate the Z-word and eliminate the problems. Like the three other bags in Plano's new Z-Series, the Z-Series Technical Tackle Backpack utilizes easy-opening HDPE buckles and Velcro in lieu of… well, you know, while additional engineered features eliminate other common tackle pain points.

Outside, a new, high-performance Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) waterproof fabric defies the elements and allows for easy care, while a vivid, light orange finish prevents overheating and delivers a simple yet sizzling aesthetic.

A healthy main compartment is accessed through the bag's top, and provides capacity for up to four included 3700-size StowAway tackle boxes. A speedy cinch-cord provides initial closure, while a large flap secured by buckles and Velcro tightly covers the opening to lock out salt and spray.

The face of the Z-Series Technical Tackle Backpack features an additional lower flap that opens to access a tool holder and a drop-down, see-through, wrap-style pocket that's perfect for housing hot baits, keys, smartphones or other angling essentials.

Three additional large pockets are found on the bag's exterior – one on each side, and a third beneath the front flap. These generous pockets feature buckle and Velcro closures and provide secure storage for reels, line spools, sunglasses or other tackle and accessories.

A tackle backpack must be comfortable, and the new Z-Series Technical Tackle Backpack is a dream to wear, courtesy of its adjustable and padded shoulder straps. One strap features a readily accessible tool holder, while the other sports a handy mesh slip pocket.
