That's my least favorite part of the bag by far.

In the video, one guy had the flap unzipped only halfway, just enough to use the putter pocket on the inside. Not sure how the zippers hold in place for that, but it looked neat.

We need more specs on this thing. It doesn't look like the material quality is as high as competing bags.

Any word on the materials grade on this one?
Physical flight Conteder has Velcro inside bottom compartment to attach the front flap or the large front pocket to stuff it in if you don't want to use the Velcro.

I think it looks great. If Will Shusterick endorses it, it must be pretty functional.

I must have missed that, thanks for the clarification. That is much more appealing.

I like the aluminum frame as opposed to pvc pipe that I see a lot on backpack/diy bags. I like the vertical feature and the horizontal option as well. The extra storage doesnt seem abundant though.. which is something I expect from a backpack, since it is a backpack afterall.

Not a problem, just wanted to mention it and once all the bags ship out by the end of March we will have a thorough review of the finished product with Michael Johansen and his bag full of comets...back to your regularly scheduled program.

seems to be the sacrifice for the slimmer profile. If you don't utilize the bottom for horizontal disc storage, I bet there's a lot of space down there. And I like how the bottle holders stretch out and double as disc sleeves. I don't ever carry two nalgenes but every backpack has 2 holders.

It appears to have a bit more room for a sweatshirt or whatnot than the Grip, though. I'd be intrigued to try one of these if I could actually see one in person, first. I much prefer the slim profile over the Grip. That said, there is nothing wrong with my Grip. Just my wandering eye...
