    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

    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.

    Good stripping basket - 7/16/2014

    The stripping basket is everything that it says. Good size, not too big or too small. Feels very durable and the rod holder helps when you need it.

    I have this basket. It works ok but it would be nice to have a bigger one. Maybe 6-8" bigger in diameter all around.

    The mother of baskets - 1/1/2014

    I have been using this basket for many years now - can't really remember when I bought it, maybe even in the mid-to-late 90s. It works very well for me except when I'm wading deep: Then it tends to swim up and get awash. Otherwise great: Keeps shooting line absolutely tangle-free, sand-free and will hold rod while I change flies or handle fish. Durably does double duty as a bucket for wet wading boots in the car's booth, safe storage for fragile items in my "Rolling Thunder" duffle; hand washing bucket, dog's water pail, to name just a few. The community of seatrout fishermen here in Germany are somewhat split in their opinion: Those who are always wading deep derise it as a means of compensating lesser casting skills, while others prefer shooting more line out of their baskets to getting wet under their armpits ;–)) It is half lovingly, half disdainfully dubbed "Eierpappe" (literally: cardboard egg pallet) here. I wouldn't want to be without mine, scratches and everything, but still strong after much use and abuse. I am appalled by the exorbitant price it has today.
