Let's see how it works...

Finished my PVC frame (same setup as Fred Vegas').
Lt. Dan's dimensions just fit, and you have to put the last couple of parts together in the bag. Took some persuading, but it actually fits pretty well. Thanks to them, Tistoude, and everyone else who shared their wisdom.

Using the velcro rold holder straps to hold a tri-pod camp stool. Got a mini in the pocket between the drink and the main bag. Using safety pins as zipper stops - wanna dial that in and make sure I'm happy with it before making any serious mods. Will try this out tomorrow during a league round. Not sure I like the ingress/egress for the discs furthest to the L/R, and I need to find a convenient pencil holder, but we'll see. Seems pretty promising.



There's 19 on the bottom, and two putters visible. Yeah, I know - I should condense my arsenal

It's very usable without the frame. I haven't made my frame yet but I have about 10 rounds on my bag and it's doing great. About the only thing I don't like is trying to use the front pocket as a putter pocket (not quite deep enough) and not having a true drink pocket on the bag.

I'm sure people know this already but the side pocket is not meant for a drink. It's meant to be dry storage for your phone or wallet which is why it sucks. I took a female clip from down below and swapped it for the male clip up top so I could at least clip in and lock a bottle in place which I'm riding my bike to the course.

These can be used without the frame.

I put a dopey 99 cent store magazine track in mine.

Magazine rack ^

Here's the latest iteration with a few more Bagyvers

Heavy coat of plasti dip (bottom was getting worked)
Added Sewn zipper stops (Thanks FredVegasDGC)
Pizza Box Lid anti sagging device (Thanks pizza dude)
Folded Lower compartment cover under frame and added a plastic insert to help keep it upright
This ^ keeps discs inside a bit better than just PVC frame

Removed front upper frame section to make removing/inserting discs quicker/easier

Future mods: Bigger drink holder (possibly 2), replace pizza lid with flexible, light plastic version

^looks like this has a roomier top section, and perhaps better pockets (i.e. more usable), but it's $30 more than the XPG ($80 vs $50 based on current price of each).

I ordered Cabela's XPG Deluxe Angler's Pack and got it in a couple of days ago. I haven't built any kind of internal frame contraption, as I am still working on how best to organize my gear, but I have to tell you that I am going to dig this bag. For one, I am a soccer coach; this week I have been able to carry around cleats and extra soccer gear for coaching as well as an 18-disc assortment in the bottom pouch for when I throw a bit after our practices (7 mids, 4 fairways, and 7 drivers). I will have my putters in the mid-level pocket or the top single-disc-sized pocket; this bag could comfortably hold 25 discs. I am looking forward to testing it out this weekend over the course of a couple of rounds.
