The TrailLite Designs Ebira is a wonderful piece of gear for the tenkara fisherman. Its light, simple and comfortable.
The design is great. You can carry two rods with all the necessities. The pouch can fit nippers, hemostats, a small morell fly box, tippet and extra line. The pouch can be put on either side of the rod sleeve and can be worn on either side of your shoulder. The ebira has an adjustable strap which is great to secure it to your back and makes bushwhacking very easy.
Ive made it on two trips now and have got some good use out of it. The ebira is great if you are looking to do hike-ins to get to the river and if you are doing any type of bushwhacking. If you are just jumping out of the car and right into the river this really isn't the product your looking for. Although I have used it this way and it works.
I have been using the fuji ez keeper and was a little hesitant about sliding the rod into the sleeve with the line and fly still all attached. I haven't done it yet and will edit this and let you know how it works next time.
Over all its a great item and I would highly recommend it.
