While the yellow is pictured, I received blue bags. Nonetheless, they are well-constructed and are perfect for all those bags of plastics that are normally scattered about or put loosely into other types of bags. These are much better than those worm binders as well.
Before using the Plano FTO worm files, I was putting my soft plastics in 6 qt. Sterilite boxes and stacking them in two compartments. I find that these hold just as much but are quiter, do not break in rough water, and are handier for transport. I still use the hard boxes to store things in my garage and back compartment, but the worm files are what I put my baits that I use most often in. I keep 6 in my middle storage in my boat and have attached luggage tags to identify what is in them. Kudos to Wal-Mart. I thought I was getting the old model on clearance and they sent me the new ones instead. Best price on the net!
Best price - even better than the big box fishing stores. Bought 3 bags - one for wacky worm baits, one for shakyhead baits and the third for swimming/creature baits. Each one holds about 20 bags. I'm sure if you had flatter, unopened plastic baits you could probably fit more. The zipper pulls are rubber and easy to grip and zip open and close. Material seems good - no visible stitching issues. Somewhat water resistant but not waterproof. That is the only drawback but otherwise very satisfied.
I was also storing my soft baits in Sterilite boxes and now the boxes have moved on to bigger and better things. I am ordering a few more so I have 1 for crappie 1 for salt and 2 for bass. Just a heads up, the one they sent me is blue and not amber honeycomb which worked out great for me because it matches my tackle bag.
Unlike most soft packs that only have room for 8-10 packs of plastics, this product stores on average about 20 packages of plastic baits. The claim that it can store up to 40 packs is a real stretch. I had been storing my plastic baits in Rubbermaid type hard plastic containers with snapping lids but these Worm Files are a better alternative because they are more compact and take up less compartment space in my boat. I was able to place the contents of four Rubbermaids into six Worm Files but tripled the amount of baits I can store in my boat because they are so compact. Unfortunately, Plano does not offer a way to visually select a particular bait-filled Worm File but I was able to come up with a pretty good solution. I purchased a 10-pack of Scotch Thermal Laminating Patches (with clips) for less than $3, labeled index cards using a Sharpie, trimmed and inserted the labeled cards into the thermal pouches & sealed them with a heated iron, and clipped the labels to a zipper pull on each of the Worm Files. Now I can readily access my worms, craws or whatever without examining the contents of each file. Additionally, the Worm Files I received were blue instead of amber but I found the blue to be more appealing. I was so pleased with the Plano FTO Elite Large Worm File that I will be ordering six more. Good job Plano!
