I stumbled across this handy item while perusing a fly shop in Bend, Oregon, last fall. The "Tailgater" is made by Umpqua and fits around and inside a Rubbermaid Roughneck (18-gal) container. The Tailgater is designed with the flyfisherman in mind, but I found it perfect for packing around all the gear and other necessities associated with a day or more spent bird hunting or dog training. The assorted pockets of the Tailgater are situated both inside and outside the Roughneck, and are perfect for storing a number of items including medical aides, e-collars, batteries, whistles, reading material, you name it. The heart of the container is ideal for storing water jugs, dog feed, bowls, shotgun shells, any number of the larger items you typically tote around on a hunt or training session.
