    Strippin it - 7/1/2015
    By: from San Antonio, TX

    I've used this for 2 seasons now and have really put it to the test. It works great and with a few mods it's even better. I put 2 small drain holes in the near corners to allow for drainage but still keep a little water to wet the line for lubrication. You could add a few more and larger ones if you're in the surf. The belt buckle is secure and makes it easy to slide the basket to the side while navigating rocky jetty paths. I added a tape decal to inside lip for measure but it comes off after a few months of use. It would be a nice touch if these were molded into the product. It's deep enough and has no sharp edges. The side grooves are a nice touch for holding your rod while tending a knot or selecting the next fly.

    I have in the past made do with DIY baskets, which have worked for me. But after using this for a day on the surf, I'm sold. This is a well-designed stripping basket, that should last a long time.

    Great product at a ridiculous price. You can make your own with a dish basin and a web belt.

    A sturdy and functional basket. However, I feel it is highly over priced. Next time, I'll stick to Tupperware and a belt. It does the job just the same.

    Best Stripping Basket - 10/3/2014

    To effectively cast in the SF Bay and surf, also off of boats on both fresh and saltwater, a stripping basket is an essential piece of gear. The Orvis basket is the best out there with a rigid construction that is comfortable and less intrusive than many others out there. This is important in the surf as it needs to hold up against getting hit with waves. Just make sure you drill drain holes in the bottom prior to using it. I was able to drill 6 one-inch holes in the bottom and it drains water instantly.

    Amazing stripping basket - 9/23/2014
    By: from St. Pierce, Florida

    I purchased this basket for my husband when fishing in Florida. He loves the way it holds his line from getting tangled. It was expensive, however well worth the money when it works exactly how they say it is going to.

    The Orvis basket seems to be the standard among the folks I fish the salt with. I`ve had mine for 15 years and used it in cold weather, rain, hard winds, and it performs just as you`d want it to. Excellent design and material.

    This is a good product, and once you use it you wonder how you fly fished without it. I researched most if not all stripping baskets and this one beat them all. I would have given it a 5 star except it definetly needs holes in the bottom for water to drain out. Once you drill holes in the bottom your good to go

    Basket works great, but needs holes drilled in it.

    Just able to bring down to a 32 waist - 8/4/2014

    Great product but expensive. I have cinched the belt as far as it will go and it is slightly loose for me with 32" waist.
