i have seen the simian before and the seat is comfortable but are they comfortable on the back?

More comfortable than the dual pack, not quite as comfortable as the grip. I have no problem carrying it all day on our course bagging adventures, 6-8 courses in a day and I never have any spots that rub or press on my back. There's a reasonable amount of padding between the frame and your back.

Yeah, they didn't do the bag any wonders with the blue hue in the picture. But it really is a gorgeous bag. It's a light color though, so if your bags have a tendency to get dirty you will want to take that into consideration.

I've never actually seen the prodiscus bag in person, but have owned 2 dual packs, a simian, a grip, and now I have a MR golf mahal. The Mystery Ranch is without a doubt the most comfortable, and the biggest. The yoke system they use distributes the weigh better than any of them. I'm a big guy, and gettin the GB and grip off and on was my main issue.
I don't think you could go wrong with the Prodiscus, it looks like a monster, but FWIW the Mystery Ranch has a lifetime guarantee and is made in the USA. It can also be used as a carry on.

I moved from a revo dual pack to a prodiscus, I can carry more discs, more extra stuff (towels and whatnot), and it rides on the back so much better. Worth the extra $ for sure.

Prodiscus makes a purple backpack, saw one in the new style with the logo on the putter pocket on their marketing material on FB a while back. I think The Journey Post will order them for you or you can get them direct from Devan Owens on FB or from Kai (email address is on the board somewhere).

I stand corrected, then. I was actually unaware he was running a new set of colors.

Although on an off-note, I wish we'd get more info about that 12-15 disc backpack design he hinted at when these first came out.

Well, now that I'm looking at it, they call it purple but it looks like a deep purplish maroon.
