It is still very comfortable, the umbrella straps work great, winter gear storage is no problem at all and the sunglasses holder works perfect for storing cell phone and keys. My one and only complaint is the size of the drink holder and that there is only one. To be honest I only ever need one drink on the course but I like having the option of more.


I was considering doing some plasti-dip on the bottom of the bag but to be honest their is no real reason for it. The material is holding up well and the PVC keeps the discs off the bottom so even if the bottom of the bag gets a little wet the discs are fine. Later tonight I will try to get some updated pictures up.

P.S. I have about 140 rounds in with this bag.

How water resistant is the bag? It looks like a great bag. For the price I might have a winner. Could you take a pic inside the upper compartment? I would like to see how much space is inside it.

The bag has done real well. I built the frame for mine also. When I was walking to the course today my buddy thought I got the grip until I git close enough. Durability is great real tough bag tins of spae for all the extras. I used an add on water bottle from Rei that I attached to the right side to have a second drink holder or extra pocket. Can't say enough great bag definitely has won the spot for long days on the course.

Thanks for the update guys. I have been thinking about getting this bag or the Mahal. Any new pics would be cool. I can't see dropping $200 on the Grip after seeing this bag.

#4 is all the stuff I normally carry. Sweatshirt (Go Liverpool!), gloves, venison jerky, extra drink, towels, score card clip board and birdie bag. There is still room left over for any odds and ends I need.
#5 is the bag fully loaded up, still not packed tight.
#6 is my dog trying to figure out what I am doing

I have to say, this is pretty sweet. Almost like Grip took the idea from Cabela.

Does the flap for the bottom compartment with discs in it just hang there most the time or does it have a strap?

Best DIY bag I have seen yet. Nice work!
