Since the cabelas bags are no longer manufactured ...

I've been searching for a possible replacement and think I might just have found one.

I'm a little concerned it might be tough to get discs from the far right and left sides and also if it's deep enough.
I also dont see anywhere evident for a putter

it has a rain fly
drink holder
chair holder
pocket for phones and pens and stuff
and a top storage compartment

so check it out and let me know your concerns ... I might actually buy one just to check it out

That bag is a whole lot smaller than you think it is. It's only a few inches deep. (That's what she said)

Well I hope I do end up getting it instead of my money back. I have a couple ideas for mods I haven't seen just yet, but I still have about 50 some pages of this thread to read still.

This thread's full of all kinds of good ideas, but trust me on this one: hit it with a 3-4 coats of brush on Plasti-dip before you use the bag. It will enhance the bag's durability and abrasion resistance... BIG-time. To me, that's the main benefit, and the waterproof bottom's just a bonus.

New project! Yay!

This might be the one I try to build a vertical disc organizer for. We'll see. You can find them for $30 if you're not picky about the color. (Only found the blue one for $30 so far)

^^^ This.

I got a Grip bag as a gift a few weeks ago, but haven't taken it out in the messy SE Wisconsin snow/slop yet. It's just too damn pretty.

The coats of Plasti-Dip on the bottom of the Cabelas bag are WELL worth the $6 you'll spend on a can of the stuff. I've had to set my bag in what are basically shallow puddles and I never get even a drop of water inside the disc compartment.

Everyone should know that on the Cabela’s main website the Cabela’s XPG® Pro is sold out due to the large demand with discgolfers. I had a Cabela’s exec find my blog post on my Cabela’s bag and sent me an e-mail on what I had to do to adapt it for DG. He wanted to know how many DG’ers I knew had a Cabela’s backpack and how they were holding up.

I told him how I built the lower section frame, waterproofed the botom, sewed in zipper stops, the top front pocket could be deeper so a putter could fit all the way in and the bag needed insulated side holders for 32oz bottles.Stuff like that.

My impression is that he was doing research in to either modifying the backpack for a Cabela’s DG version or doing it himself and marketing it on his own.

I told him he needed to get with the local DG scene and learn more about the sport and how DG wears and tears on a backpack.
