The second issue took a while for me to notice. The velcro strip inside the main compartment that is used to hold the flap in place after you unzip it and tuck it in was getting caught on the putter pocket and fraying it. It ended up eating a hole through the putter pocket by the time I noticed it. The new Grip bags fixed this problem by making that patch of velcro smaller so it doesn't reach the putter pocket and the putter pocket itself is made from a different material that is less likely to snag.

The third Grip bag I have now seems solid but I'm guessing is a tiny bit narrower than the previous two. I can't hold my usual amount of discs in the main compartment, and I can't fit any disc in the front pouch like I was able to in the older bags. I'm getting kind of tired of the inconsistencies.
i had no idea that Grip had these kind of production quality issues, hopefully for you third times a charm...

Well, I bought the Grip this past June. At that point there were no issues with keeping the bags in stock. I had it at my door 2 days after placing the order online. But yeah, I wasn't expecting this many problems from a $200 bag. My Fade Gear bags had less issues than my Grip.

Anyone have a picture of a Forest Green one? Thinking about getting one in that color but would like to see what it looks like.

These are currently in stock at Marshall Street. I love mine. Holds a ton and doesn't hurt the back. I usually have 20 in the main compartment and 5 in the putter pocket. Each side pocket could easily hold 4-5 more and that still leaves the 2 long side pockets. The fit is great as I am a big man (6'3" and 340 lbs, 58" chest). My old bag was a Revo Carolina with quadshocks that would leave my back a little sore after a couple rounds. The bag is expensive but worth it to me for the back relief. I knew I wanted this over a Grip bag because of the size. I just couldn't see myself being comfortable in a bag that little Paige Pierce says fits just right.

Is it small enough to carry on?

Has anyone flown with one of these yet? I'm getting one next week and we're flying to Indianapolis, just wanting to make sure it'll fit in the overhead bin.

Thanks!
Will

Awesome, side pockets full and everything? I was probably going to try and fit one change of clothes just in case.
