I have a smaller Cabelas bag for ice fishing it holds 3 3700 (large) Plano boxes. Been using it for 7 ice seasons and nothing is broken. Believe me it's been tossed around. Paid maybe 15$. I also have a Flambeau, Okeechobee Fats, and a Plano soft bag for summer fishing. I love my small Plano to walk and fish and for the kayak. It holds 4 3700 Plano boxes. If I know I'll only throw a few types of lures I'll throw the boxes with those lures inside the bag. The Flambeau is used for river or night excursions. It holds 6 3700 Plano boxes. Enough to carry what I'll need and two built in rod holders. The Okeechobee Fats is the second I've owned. They could be considered an off brand but I've got only good things to say about them. The one I have now holds 8 3700 Plano boxes and 3 small Plano boxes on the sides and front. Perfect for on the boat all day or if I'm taking a trip somewhere. The one reason I've got 3 bags is so I can grab to boxes I need off my tackle rack, throw them in the bag I want and go! No switching baits to a different box or messing around. I've picked up bags from Cabelas, Fleet Farm, Wal-mart, etc. I don't usually tell people to shop Wal-Mart but I was there two days ago and they had gobs of stuff on sale. They had a few nice Plano soft bags. One larger one that I believe held 6 3700 Plano boxes and a small one that held 3. They where red and yellow and I already had $46 worth of other stuff on sale or Id have bought one. Pics of my tackle rack and the Okeechobee bag.

bought my magnum Cabelas' Advanced angler bag about 2005. Sill rock solid, no weardown, flaws, or deterioration yet. Awesome huge bar! (and strong..weighed mine once at 72# )

Last season I purchased a Cabelas' Advanced angler bag in the magnum size and I absolutely love it. Built tough,strong zippers and pockets and places for your tools(pliers,clippers,etc.). No regrets here.
