Will a Sitka ToolBucket Pack hold a Predator XL platform?

I’m considering either purchasing a 2019 or 2020 Sitka Tool Bucket backpack to carry sticks and a Predator XL platform for day hunts.

Dimensions of the Predator XL platform are 15.25 x 13 x 3.

Was hoping to place the platform inside the bag, but unsure if that would be too tight of squeeze?

Does anybody have any insight concerning these Sitka packs?

I have the 2020 toolbucket and the regular predator will fit inside the pack with little room to spare.

XL probably wouldn’t fit inside the pack, but shouldn’t have any issue lashing it to the outside

Do you also haul climbing sticks with the ToolBucket?
One stick - I can take a picture of the inside with my predator if you’d like. Not really sure how much larger the xl is but I think it would be a bear getting it in and out even if it would fit

I carried muddy pros and my ridge runner last year on the 2019 toolbucket. This year carrying my shikars and ridge runner on the 2020 tool bucket. Can still strap clothes to the bottom and the interior is still available.
The xl should work just fine... I have plenty of strap left over with these lashed down.

How do you like to 2020 tool bucket compared to the 2019? I was a little disappointed to se they dropped the belt.
