Also, If you google something like "cabela's coupon" or "Cabelas promo" it should be pretty easy to find a code for 2 dollar shipping.

Interesting looking bag for sure - Any further feedback from big folks as to how this fits? I have pretty broad shoulders, and taking a too-small bag off and on all the time would be a huuuuge PITA.

Any chance there's room for a Camelback bladder in this badboy?

I'm 6'2" tall and weight 220, the bag fits me just fine. I loosen the straps when I am playing, and shorten them for my bike commute. I picked this bag so I would be able to carry spare bike tubes etc., and a bike pump fits in the rod holder. If you zipper the internal divider a water bladder could easily fit in the top compartment. I built the internal frame all the way to the top of the bag, so now I have a 3" x 11.5" seat in my bag. Setting the bag down and having a seat to sit on is great.

This is probably about the largest the frame can be made too because it is a rather snug fit and takes a few minutes to try and zip the flap that separates the two compartments (I have to take one end off and put it in through the top to get it in the bag). It holds the discs nicely and I can actually walk around with the back flap completely open and the discs won't fall out as long as I am not to rough with it.


I had a question about the dimensions. Are those dimensions of the frame after its complete or the length of the pvc before connecting. I am bad at building things so any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

Those are the finished dimensions not the cut lengths.

Keep in mind that the height is subjective. I made mine a little shorter so that I would not have as much trouble working the zipper. Others made theirs much taller so that the frame extends into the upper compartment (like Conch's built in seat).

I made my frame to fit the disc compartment fairly snug. The back & bottom are secured with pvc glue.The top side and front up sections are not glued so I can remove the frame without stressing the zipper.



I made the frame to make the bag rigid. The discs won't fall out because if there is anything in the top section the bottom will sag down just enough to hold them in place.

I got mine in the mail yesterday and I think the Mojo might be on it's way out the door. AWESOME bag with a lot (as seen here) of potential. Can't wait to put it through the paces...
