Pretty decent sized bag with room for other things as well. This website offers custom embroidery as well. And they're available in a bunch of colors.

I'll upload pictures later if I play with someone who has one or can get one of my friends to take some pictures.
I'd like to see one of these in use if anyone can post pictures.

Picked this bag up from a thrift store for $5 added a $3 plastic storage bins. A couple tops on the side to make it sturdy. Now i just need a couple of patches to cover up the dumb speedo emblems and I think itll be good.
-20 discs plus a side pocket for +2 putters
-Side pocket for keys/paraphernalia/water bottle and such
-Flap to close the top
-2 straps to hold an umbrella or chair

^dude might have a point there. Looks like a good bag at a killer price.

When you just start to see the material wear and fray on the bottom (probably at the corners) - then clean it and hit the bottom with 4 coats of brush on Plasti-Dip.

I'm not saying it's cheap - all bags will start to wear sooner or later. I'm just saying Plasti-Dip helps with that more than some people think.

Someone I know did it, and doesn't think it was worth it because he "doesn't see the wear it's preventing." When you see a bag starting to show signs of wear and abrasion on the bottom after a few months, then you plasti-dip it, and don't see the material showing through the plasti-dip for well over a year, you'll appreciate it then.

Good point! I will watch for wear, then Plasti-dip to protect my costly investment!

What other backpacks have people used for this? I was really disappointed to hear that the Cabela's one is gone...

Great ingenuity to those that have done this! You guys have inspired me, fo' sho!
