I love this bag. I've had it for 10+ years. Very well made. 9"x18"x6" loaded and stores out of the way. It is very comfortable, provides plenty of cushioning for long paddles and holds a ton of gear stored out of the way. I have it pre-loaded with a large medical kit, rain suit, snakebite kit, folding saw, dry bag with a roll of paper towels, trowel w toilet paper, my canoe shoes and still room for more if needed. An 8"x17" cutting board acts as a bottom stiffener. There is a matching thwart bag available. I like it so much I bought a second one to leave in Florida with the canoe I keep there. I cannot recommend it more highly.
