Product Review...

Do you have a product you want to give a review? Have you bought or made something you want to share? Post it here...

I recently purchased a 'trappers bag' made by Dave Dressler, Pennsylvania.
Price $40. With shoulder strap, $45

I like this bag, well made, longer than most bags, lots of side pockets and made by a trapper.
Two large end pockets and Seven outside pockets...

A large pouch on the other side. Large enough for a pistol, extra gloves and such...

Plus a large inside pocket...

I had Dave add a shoulder strap to my bag...

I took the wood bottom out and rounded the corners and sanded the edges so sharp corners wouldn't cut bag with heavy use...


Dave has an upholstery business.
Call during business hours.

Re: Product Review...

Stitching looks like it will hold up.
I like the open, deep pockets.
Some bags on the market have a flap over the pockets, and not so deep pockets, that I don't like.

CoonDuke, can you give your opinion using this bag?

Anyone else want to show equipment, homemade things, books, videos, modifications and give a review?

Re: Product Review...

I have two bags...one with a strap and one without.

I used them for a season or two and like the bags. Dave is a good guy.

I might be the one who convinced him to make a shoulder strap model.

Re: Product Review...

These aren't product reviews as much as simple modifications to products that I thought made them better.

Mattock that I narrowed the digger on,,, I'll never trap without one again. Way easier than getting on your knees and using a sod buster.




Spine welded on a Wolf Fang driver so it distributes the energy a little better.



Welded the grooves shut then cut them again hoping they last longer.



Welded a claw on the bottom of my cable stake puller for pulling rebar. Typically I can pull them pretty easily with this thing.



Added a second length of chain to my stake puller, plus I added in-line swivels.



Added a cutter to the side of my auger so it doesn't cork screw down in the ground.



After spending time with Zags and Bob J I decided to straighten out the cutting edge of my hammer. The advantage is you can cut your trap beds on your body side of you straight down.
