I honestly feel bad. I respect DD as a company, and I expected better. DD made a great move in going with Latitude to be their disc manufacturer. Innova and Discraft already mold for other "fringe" lines. Emac is a great guy, and presumably now the face of DD. But I don't think this bag situation was done right. Even if they offered the backpack at $150.00, I think people would be more likely to ignore the issues. The limited lifetime warranty helps if you like the look of the bag, and don't mind the possibility of going through a couple warranty claims. But the $25.00 difference from bags made with 1600D+ ballistic nylon or cordura is negligible. And 600D polyester is insulting. Poly is a far weaker fabric than nylon. 600D poly is actually about as strong as 400D nylon.

I mean, it is what it is. I do wish DD the best of luck in getting into the game. I just wish we could have either a better quality bag, or more competitive pricing.
