Glad to see you guys are back.
Steve and Gina,
So glad you folks are back. I've been an Abel devotee for over three decades now. Besides numerous Abel reels I have one of the original 15 day bags, reel brief, and rod carrier. All have made numerous trips to remote destinations and continue to function as new.
I have one of your original 10 day bags --- Met Steve fishing at Crystal Creek Lodge - Alaska -- summer of 1989. --- Saw his bag on that trip and bought one soon after --- it has been on many trips since then and now my daughter uses it. Incredible quality and smart design never goes out of style..
MANY thanks. as I am sure many of your other loyal past supporters have said, it is SO great to have you & Steve back in market making the absolute BEST bags already out there. I have another one of these in gray and have taken it to many of the 77 countries I have visited so far in my life. I also have Abel rod cases (3) and fishing bags. They are truly so FAR beyond anything else out there and it was SO disappointing for awhile when they weren’t available. This one will be broken in our a trip to the Kenai in Alaska this August. All my best for future success with this endeavor - as I'm sure it will be :-)"
"... green Abel 10-Day Bag with hidden backpack straps when I was about 17. 20 years and many travels later, it's still my fav!"
"Very glad to see the revived range of Steve Abel luggage is on the market. I have been a huge fan for over 17 years just as long as I have owned my first piece of Abel luggage and it is still as good as new today! Well done Steve your the man!!"
