My version of the Grip Eq bag
 
This is a bag I found at Cabela's that matches up really well against the Grip Eq bag but for $100 less. Some key points are that the upper section and the disc poscket are separated by zipper flap. I heard alot of complaints from the Grip users that they have to pile their stuff right on top of the discs. Also there is sweet insulated drink sleeve and an umbrella holder (really a fishing rod holder). The only things I added were two safety pins on the front pocket to limit how far the zippers open.

Nice work man, I love my "home made" bag. I made the one from the Swissgear backpack and its holding up great

I have 14 discs in the pouch, not couting the two putters up top, and I have room for 4 or 5 more.

sweet, beat me to it. i saw this online and plan on doing the same. the only thing i was unsure of was the capacity of the top compartment and where to put a nalgene.

Awesome. I'm guessing this is the $69.99 version that they have listed online? Sort of makes me regret my recent purchase, but oh well.

While searching their site I came across this which also intrigued me. I'm tempted to take a look in person to see how discs would fit in there.

This is my first post, been looking for a while at the site but havent posted till today.

Have you had a chance to take this bag out for a round? How did it hold up pros/cons any discs falling out etc?

I want a backpack bag but don't want to drop the 150 on a rev and yours looks sweet.

I have played a couple rounds now with my bag and I have to say it did really well. The bag itself is very comfortable and seems really well made. It took me a couple of tries to dial in where I needed the saftey pins to be so that it was easy to pull out the discs but not too loose that the discs will fall out on their own. The separation between the upper and lower sections is perfect. I have never understood why some of the bags on the market make you pile stuff on top of the discs?? I do wish the drink holder was larger. It can hold a bottle of soada/water but would not be able handle a Nalgene.

All in all the main adjustment was just getting used to using a backpack style instead the Innova Tourney bag with quad shocks.
