I have been using the hPa Popper Roll for more than a year now and it has become an integral part of my GT fishing gear. Therefore when the Ebbtide crew asked me to write a short review of the product, I was more than happy to oblige.
The Popper Roll is designed as a lure day bag for GT anglers or those using similarly sized lures. It consists of ten lure pockets which are clear vinyl faced with a Velcro fastening flap and webbing at the top and bottom to allow easy drainage. There is an additional wider compartment which is multi-function.

The utility compartment could used for a few more lures, it could hold jigs or you could use it for bagged terminals. I do not use it
|washed down and hung up to dry|
Due to the material used, cleaning is a breeze - just remove the lures and shower it down. The meshed pockets allow easy draining and it so straightforward to rinse off any saltwater residue. This is now a ritual for me after every day of GT fishing. Hang it up after a wash down and it dries quickly.
The popper roll also flat packs down very efficiently. this is important when going on an oversea trip. I simply flat back mine in the bottom of my bag and it takes up little room. Once you are ready to fish, it is designed to perfectly fit into the hPa fish box.
The only very minor thing I would change is to remove the four metal eyelet rings or change them to plastic. The owner of hPa has informed me that these have already been changed to plastic in the current production.
