I'll try to film a quick video some time today and will see if I can get some decent footage of the frame. I have a knock-off Camelbak somewhere in my apartment. If I can find it, I'll include it in the video.
Sweet! Stuff the tongue down in the pouch for me if you can! If not, I will post Heavy Critters' Stones logo again.

Go ahead and post it, I already have the car packed. I'm sorry. I didn't see your post until just now. I promise I'll get one on here tomorrow night.

I did get to play a rainy round at Osage Grove today with kutz167. Besides being a damn nice guy, the kid has a cannon. As for the Ergo, it performed admirably. I did have a couple fall overs on hills, but I'm not used to how the bag sits so that's more my fault than the bag's.

The rainfly is nice, but I did have some trouble getting discs out with the elastic strap that attaches the rainfly to the bag. I am not a fan of rain and usually avoid it at all costs. Had I examined the rainfly a little more thoroughly yesterday (never thought I'd use it), I probably wouldn't have had a problem with it tonight. The hood was actually pretty nice and easily utilized, but I'm still curious as to why they included it. When you're not wearing your bag, your head gets soaked. I did like that the fly "potentially" kept water from getting between your back and the bag, but your back gets just as wet as your head.

Despite carrying a lot more plastic than I did in my Squirrel Monkey, I felt a lot less tired by the end of the round. I can't wait to attack those courses next week. As lofty a goal as four courses a day are, I am a lot more optimistic about it being possible now.

Ha ha, no worries man. Glad you were out enjoying the bag! I'm also happy to hear it is light and comfortable. The hillside tipping has me a little concerned, but I know it took me a little while to figure out how to set my Grip correctly so I didn't have this issue. Plus, a lot of times I just leave my bag at the bottom of the hill and take one disc up anyway.

Can't wait to hear more reviews of these!

I am sure you will be able to find one on here. Some people may end up not enjoying the bag as much as they thought they would.

I for one have the Ergo pre-ordered and am waiting on another manufacture to announce their new bag and I may go with that one. So, I may have one for sale whenever I finally get it.

Yeah, I know that Grip is coming out with a new design sometime this year. I want to wait to see what they come out with before I make a $200 dg bag purchase.

I'm a little behind on my promise, but here's a pic of mine with the tongue tucked into the bag. The parking lot is Va-Du-Mar. I played all day with this setup and enjoyed it quite a bit. I think that's how I'll use it tomorrow too. The tipping issue is avoided by pointing the front uphill.



Put in 4 rounds today. Va-Du-Mar, Timmons, Grand Central, and Stoney Hill. It was a long, crazy day (played 8am - 8pm), and the bag was a great asset all day.
