I feel that this would work better than having the discs in the bottom compartment. Do you guys think this would work? Is there any point in trying to do this? I have a bag but actually use it for fishing lol. I have a lat 64 bag and I love the amount of storage it has. Can you fit a sweatshirt or rain suit into this bag will all the discs? My lat 64 bag is starting to fall apart and I want a cheaper backpack bag and this seems like a good option. Let me know what you guys think, thanks!
You can easily fit a sweatshirt and rain suit in the top storage. On page 8 I posted some pictures of the stuff I regularly store in my bag.

I previously posted that I would have to save up for this, but I just received an award at work, and one of the selections was a gift card to Cabela's for $50. guess I have enough to buy and mod this bag. Look forward to getting started on it...

Now I'm going to have to buy more discs to fill it...

im probably going to be selling mine (with the frame) if anyone is interested.
You have pics? I'm interested.

Which bag is better: The regular Cabela or the deluxe Cabela? I see many of you having made mods to the regular.

the deluxe will not work as well. I went to a local Cabela's store to check them both out. Somehow the regular one just has a perfect compartment, where the deluxe one does not.

Has anyone looked at converting one of these? This is in the same family as the backpack. I think you could add D-rings for Quad-Straps right at the X.

My nearest Cabela's is several hundred miles away, so I'm not going to be able to check them out.....

I'm wondering if it will work without building a frame of pvc. I read on here I think where someone used a piece of memory foam in the bottom to get a memory of the discs so they wouldn't fall out.

One of the biggest advantages to building/using a frame is to bring some rigidity to the bottom of the bag so it doesn't fall over or fold in on itself if you have items in the upper compartment. You can certainly use the bag without a frame, but a frame really makes the bag solid when you're putting it down on uneven ground.
