Reviewer: Team TackleTour


Introduction: Just a few years back when anglers heard the name Plano they thought of only plastic molded tackle storage boxes, but that has all changed. With popular hybrid bags like the Flipsiders Plano has attracted a much wider range of anglers, and this ICAST the company goes tournament style with  the KVD Signature Series XL gear bag.


Plano partnered up with Kevin VanDam for their new bag


It makes sense for Plano to partner up with Kevin VanDam, who is well known for his meticulous preparation and organization in advance of tournaments. He also happens to be among the most decorated anglers in history. As a two-time Bassmaster Classic Champion, three time recipient of the B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year award; Kevin understands tackle organization is key to his success.


Four Plano boxes are included with the new KVD XL bag


Kevin lent his expertise, helping Plano design the new tackle bag.  Taking everything Kevin wanted in a bag; Plano created the new Kevin VanDam Signature Series bags for Planos new flagship product line, the Guide Elite Series.


Plano's new KVD bag makes it easy to access boxes from both sides

The 4880 KVD Signature Series XL Gear Bag features an extra large main compartment for storage of large gear. The 4880 KVD Signature Series XL Gear Bag is constructed of easy to clean weather resistant fabrics and features 6 zippered pockets and 11 mesh pockets. 

Plano includes water resistant packages designed to hold electronics


Both the front and back of the bag open to provide easy access to all your gear stored inside. Two bags in one, the 4880 KVD Signature Series XL Gear Bag comes with a removable zippered weather-resistant take-along bag that stows in the front pocket. To help keep moisture out the 4880 KVD Signature Series XL Gear Bag is fitted with a molded water-proof non-slip base and weather-resistant zippers. The 4880 KVD Signature Series Gear Bag measures 27L x 15.5W x 15.75H.


The water resistant bags are removable, making it easier to access and stow your valuables


The 4870 KVD Signature Series Bag packs all of the features of the 4880 into a more compact size, then goes a step further by including four 3700 Series StowAway utility boxes.  The 4870 KVD Signature Series Bag measures 22.75L x 12W x 12H.

The KVD bag is designed to feel comfortable carried in the hand with the convenient handle, and even better over the shoulder with the included strap. The design allows you to open and access the Plano boxes inside when the bag is being carried, and boxes wont fall out easily. The water resistant bags are great for digital cameras and cell phones and other valuables. Just how much did attendees at the show like this bag? A whole lot considering Plano went home with top honors in the tackle management category.
