I've been using the Cabela's bag for about 4 months now. Here's my thoughts:
-I never got around to building the PVC frame that many have built, but I have been satisfied by how well it stands on its own. Don't expect it to stay upright on hills though, but laying it down on its padded back makes the discs still easily accessible.
-The side pocket that is not zippered (the one above the "drink holder") fits an Iphone w/Otterbox like a glove. When tipped over the phone stays in place, which is comforting to know.
-The zipper pocket directly next to the "drink holder" easily fits a set of keys and a wallet.
-The drink holder will not fit a 32oz Gatorade due to their large bases, but a 32oz Nalgene fit and stay secure. If you're in to drinking energy drinks have no fear NOS, Full Throttle, etc fit deeply into the holder, making them less at risk of tipping over.
-The bottom of the bag is holding up exceptionally well and I have had no problems with it tearing or looking rough.
-The main disc compartment holds more than enough disc for the average player. I find that this compartment does tend to collect a lot of dirt and even some mud if wet, but what bag doesn't... I take my disc out every so often and clean the entire inside with a wet rag and it is back to looking brand new.
-The putter pocket is big enough to easily fit two putters. I typically put both my putters and my go to driver in the pocket and they fit nicely.
-The upper compartment is big enough to carry whatever else you may find necessary, but be forewarned that if it is heavy it can somewhat hinder the removal and entry of the disc in the lower compartment due to the soft flexible padding that separate the compartments. I'm being a bit picky with that one for it is nothing to return the bag over, just something I noticed.
-One may ask what does one do with the sunglasses case? Have no fear, I've found that a small bottle of OFF fits perfectly into that awkward pocket.
-The padded back and straps make for near fatigue-less rounds even with the bag at full capacity.
-The zippers are of excellent quality and I have yet to have one snag or fail.
-The most disappointing part of the bag I found was the side straps that people have been using for either their umbrellas and or stools. I had my stool strapped to the side of the bag for one round and had a strap come un-stitched and another on its way out as well. Though these straps could certainly be stitched back on it was rather annoying for them to come undone after only one round.
All in all I say that this is an excellent bag for the money. I would certainly recommend it to any of my friends and wouldn't hesitate to by another. It is constantly getting attention on the course and it is different from the regular bags. Congrats to Cabela's for making a near perfect disc golf bag without even knowing it.
