It's a no lose buy. If you don't like it as a DG bag it will make a perfect overnight tourney backpack. Worse comes to worse just find a friend or relative that's in to fishing and sell it to him.

I put a PVC frame in mine today, Finally got the dimensions right after about 10 tries. After all of that effort, I didn't like it. I feel like I can fit an extra 4 or 5 discs in that bottom pocket without the frame. I think I'll just go with making a zipper stop and folding the pocket in to keep the discs from falling out.

What didn't you like about it? The fact that it took away storage space or was it uncomfortable?

That it took away from storage space without adding more benefit to offset that. For me, the structure of the bag doesn't cave in enough for the frame to be a necessity, especially when the frame takes 4 discs at least out of the bag. It didn't find it uncomfortable at all with the frame in, that wasn't the issue.

Try this....

Go to a fabric store and buy a small square of 1 inch memory foam. Cut a piece that fits the bottom and put your discs in. After a while the weight of the discs will make permanent indentions in the foam and make a groove to keep your discs in place.

I've pretty much gotten the back pack the way I want it now. I did make some modifications...

I sewed the zipper stops in on the disc compartment


I took the cross straps off because they just get in my way


I added a strand of black elastic rope to the disc compartment zippers so I can open or close both zippers at the same time.


I took the male clip from the cross strap and replaced one of the female clips on the insulated side bag to tighten up the opening to help keep the bottle cold.


I did some decorating while I was at it. The American flag patch covered up the logo on the disc compartment.


I also took two 1 1/2 in foam (spray painted black) and cut it to fit in the sides of the internal disc frame to keep the discs upright. I have 16 discs in there now and there was room for about 4 more.
