I love this box and the magnum dry fly version as well. Little heavy but very durable and holds a ton of flies. I like the closing clasp system and how secure it is. Definitely my favorite fly box that I have purchased. It is pretty wide so will require a large vest/bag pocket but the profile is thin.
This thing is giant, nice part is that I won't have to carry any other boxes while I have this in my bag.

These Umpqua boxes are the best designed boxes to date I have found for flies. Maximum space with the lowest profile possible for the type of fly box you plan to use midges or dry flies. Wheatley's and CF designs are nice but they are not transparent, water tight or do not have the zerust to help prevent rust to your hooks if you accidentally get water in your box.
