The tarp is a little on the small side but it keeps your rope out of the dirt and keeps it organized. The bag is a little oddly shaped. It seems like carrying a longer more slender tube with a strap than a rope bag. Not that its terrible, its just slightly more awkward than a normal rope bag to carry on the approach. all in all its a great cheap bag that gets the job done with no extra frills.
Pretty easy to pop the rope into this bad boy and get going when you need to. I'm not a huge fan of the sling style this one uses as it tends to dig into my shoulders a bit, but it gets the job done. I've had it for about 9 months now and noticed some slight wear on the bag at high wear locations like where it creases when you close it. Not too sure how long it will hold up before it tears, but so the price was good enough that I'm not all that concerned.
Just an awesome duffle. I reall love how sturdy it is. Unfortunately my lady stole it from me and uses it for her gear instead. She told me it's too girly for me. I disagree. Sure there is a flower on it, but I have flowere on my board shorts as well and I dont feel any less manly.
