^ See my initial thoughts a few pages back.

To add to those thoughts, I seriously can't say enough about centered weight and lack of fatigue after a round or two. Yes, a full bladder limits the number of discs to less than 10, but it's a trade off I'm willing to have. I play many rounds where I don't need more than 4-8 discs so it's perfect for that.

For new courses and longer rounds I use my Grip.

1 very important thing to remember, put your bag on the ground disc side down. Stickers and whatnot get stuck in the breathable mesh material that lines the back. Not sure what the life span of the stretch material will be where the discs go, I guess we'll see...and how UP deals with warranty claims regarding that.

How is the back padding on the Rebel working out for keeping your backs cool?

I'd love to have a disc golf backpack with a suspended mesh backing similar to this pic below, but the Rebel looks like the next best thing.

The padding on the Rebel is nice and thick. The channels between areas of padding allow plenty of ventilation. Unfortunately, it's constantly over 100 in Houston right now, so no amount of ventilation keeps my back "cool." That being said, the back of my shirt is not soaked through with sweat while wearing the Rebel while my buddy's back is with his Ranger.
