It also comes supplied in its own carry bags which also retain any smell, making the car/van instantly wife/girlfriend-friendly should you have had a bag-up sesh.Key Features - DPM version of Discovery CX Flotation Weigh Sling - Designed for safe retention and release of fish - Full length floats for added buoyancy - Three quarter mesh construction - Easy flow and exchange of water - Complete top mesh panel with full length zip - Safety clip, and support bars - Four carry handles, strong main weigh strap, with rings - Hi-vis Velcro fastenings - Supplied with zipped stink bag - 3m clip cord so as fish can settle in the deeper margins - Dimensions: 125cm L x 70cm D x 4cm W
