Nalgene makes some nice 32 oz. canteen containers. They would fit great in the Ergo.

EDIT: Stevo beat me to it!

The bottle I found at Kroger looks basically the same as the nalgene but with a different lid. As far as my set up ill try to out together a video tonight after I get back home.

Did you post pics of the bungee method anyhwere though? I'd be interested to see how well it works.

I'm thinking about running a couple grommets on a side zipper pocket and building something out of paracord and some hooks to support an umbrella. I don't have a lot of confidence that the velcro strap at the top and the handle tucked into the open side pockets will keep it in place when the wind starts blowing. Perhaps I should try it first before cutting holes into my new bag.

I'm also working on a detachable water bottle pocket that slides into a side pocket to free up space for putting discs in there.
Hey tbird88,
I have some pics of the bungy cord set up on my page. It's in the "orc" album. Sorry that as far as I could get with my limited computer skills, but the are at least on this website! A major step for me! lol!!

I am curious to know if I just got a bad bag. it looks like others have much more room in the bottom than mine. I just cant help but wonder if these aren't exactly what they wanted to ship out but with all the delays they just said 'Oh well'.
I wasn't to thrilled with my bag at all, but since I changed the disc configuration. It functions pretty well. I have 15 on the bottom of the bag in a vertical possition and 9 in the hoeizontal possition. I have 8 in the top 2 sleeves and 1 in the 3rd sleeve (that all that will fit in the 3rd, because of the vertical discs). The front pocket fits the majority of my stuff, but the 2nd fits little since the discs on the bottom press down on it. I did fit 2 in the flap (putter), but can't use the 2nd pocket if I want to close the flap. Water bottles haven't been a problem for me. Yes, the side pockets are a waste for sure. I dig the comfort and how small this bag is, but can still fit a ton of discs. I think the base design/idea is very sound. It just need some tweeking to it. I was ready to off this bag, but when I switched the disc configuration. It changed my mind. It's nice not to have this huge monster jet pack strapped to my back.
However, the new Grip just showed up....sooooo stay tuned lol!!

Oooh...nice. The way my side pockets have stretched, I am able to fit a Nalgene in the outer side pocket with a disc in the inner. It is very tight and feels like it would warp/damage the disc. The canteen might just be the answer to the disc and water problem...

Thank you for the link!

If you end up buying it, let me know how it works, particularly with a Pure since I know you throw them too.

Is it weird that I go in my garage and play with configurations on my bag when I am bored...?

Is it weird that I don't even own one of these bags (yet) and play with different configurations? I have gone so far as to draw it out...
