It isn't $100 more than the going rate. That is not an accurate statement.

If you look at the ultra-premium bags, Grip, Prodiscus, Mahal,
Ergo and I believe Simian, I think all of those are at least 200 and probably at least 225 each.

It is more expensive than a Ranger, that's true. But the Ranger also is the king of the price point, it's the cheapest legitimate bag that is still a quality bag.

Even at $60+ it's more than I would personally want to pay. I like all aspects of the bag though. Just not in my wheelhouse for price range.

That's fine, I'm just giving accurate numbers.

I am a firm believe in "You get what you pay for." So if I could also see the $60 worth of improvements over other bags, I might sway.
For those of you who just got them in, what are the things that separate it from the rest of backpacks?

The mahal is a lifetime warranty. And it's rugged as all get-out. It is very highly customize-able, the sidepockets can be cinched or expanded. It also has a built in yoke. I'll gladly pay for a backpack made by a company that makes backpacking gear.

I had an Ergo, I think the mahal is worth more than the $60-100 more dollars than other bags. I've played this sport long enough and often enough that it's worth it to get a bag I'll enjoy more.

Additionally, most people have at least 5-8 discs they could sell off, I'd rather have a Mahal over another bag and a USDGC roc.

The new Simian was recently bumped up to $250. Still a good price for that bag.

I went from a mojo to a ranger and while I love having a backpack over quads I miss my mojo for the build quality and thought that went into it. I think I'm gonna have to start saving quarters and selling discs to grab a new ST.
