The Peddler is pretty cool also, cheap enough I might take a shot on that for riding to the course in a bit more comfort.

The only thing I can see about the Grip bag is its inability to stand up on its own on anything but level ground. Otherwise I really like that Grip bag too.

I did a whole lot of research on this and i have to say the best bag for your buck is the prodiscus. I am ordering one here in the next week. I highly recommend checking them out. Facebook from Finland.

The Grip is an awesome bag. Only complaint for riding is I am too dumb to take half my crap out of it to make it comfortable on a bike so I end up riding with however much it weights fully loaded. Only complaints about the bag in general are a slight lack of storage space for a jacket (though if you have a pack-able enough layer it will fit) and that it does tip a bit on uneven ground. With that said, mine rarely falls over because you get a nack for which way to orient it on uneven surfaces and even when it tips, things don't spill out due to the way it is constructed.

I liked the idea of the Peddler because I can't take so much crap with me.

I don't know how the one of the most expensive bag on the market ($250) is considered the best bang for your buck, but OK. My big problem with the backpack style bags, among other things, is the price. Unless you’re going with the Gateway Ozark bag (their large backpack) at $140 you’re going to pay $200 and above for either the Simian, Grip, Revo Dual Pack, Mystery Ranch or the ProDiscus.

One can get a comparable standard style bag with quad shocks from $130 to $165. Even the second largest bag on the market, the VooDoo Zulu (behind the Mystery Ranch bag) comes in under $200 (including quad shocks). I just can't justify that price for a bag I don't see much added benefit from other than where it rides. If you really find the rideability, and in turn sweating your back off worth, the extra cheddar then so be it. It’s not for me.

I got a Revo Dual pack off of DGCR this year for $120 and am loving it. My other bag w/quadshocks was killing my back and the backpack style bag really helps distribute the weight on your entire back. No more pain for this guy. The bonus is it holds anything you could ever want depending on how you set it up. If you just hold your discs in the bottom compartment you have the entire top compartment for a jacket, towels, BEER :D I usually have it stocked up with discs however bc i always carry too dang many. The side pouches are huge as well, which is where i store my drinks, towels, seeds etc. Every DGer is different though, and that's why there are such a variety of bags out there.

After using a backpack bag, I will never go back to one that uses quad shocks. I can put twice as much in em, and it feels like it weighs less. I view a DG bag kind of like a bed. You spend so much time doing it that you should invest in a nice, comfortable one.

Well that explains it. As little as I use my DG bag its investment value would rank alongside an air mattress or a cot.
