Like when it might be hitting the market? Price? Bag details (disc capacity, pockets, storage, durability/design)?
With no solid info released yet, a pending kickstarter campaign, and all the inevitable delays...I'd say this bag is a good ways off before getting into a customer's hands. Months at the least.

Thanks for the feedback...I would like something by the end of August so I probably have to look at a different bag.

Haha why would you automatically assumed overpriced, my ultimate price point is below 150, and if that means no wholesaling to retailers and strictly direct sales off of our site that's how we will do it.

looks like a bigger version of the UPD Shift, which is something I emailed UPD about. what is with that weird pocket on the bottom right of the 2nd picture?

in the DG bag market that is a good price. your competition at that price is a really cheap looking bag (DD), so as long as your product is nice and clean I think you will do well.

how many discs do the vertical slots along the back hold?

Right now it just holds three, but I believe when the professional prototyper works up the pattern it can hold 5 (this bag was sewn in my living room, I am not a sewer/prototyper/tailor but I think it turned out pretty good!) I will have the prices of production by the end of this week.

Yea that pocket isn't my favorite (this goes back to the "I'm not a sewer" haha) but all of these little things will get worked out in the prototype shop.

It kinda looks like if you took the basic mahal design and implanted the vertical storage of the ergo as well as the vertical pockets on each side like the simian and wallah you have yourself a very nice looking bag!
