Tough bag choice

I want to get a smaller backpack, I really dislike my gateway one (I ordered the wrong one at the time, I do not know how anyone likes them - original not the ozark). So looking at cost down under and package deals I am torn.

Upper Park 2 pack, I get the smaller camel back bag and the nice mid sized bag for $205 landed. I am also considering these for my store so seeing them first would be a bonus.

Grip EQ bag from local store - $245

Bout the only two I would consider, any other backpack has niggling issues I truly dislike - especially the simian, ugh!.

I definitely wouldn't pay $245 to buy a Grip locally when they are $200 with free shipping directly from Grip Eq.

Count me in the "love them" group. The only downside is that it doesn't have the capacity of some of the other bags. But since you said you're looking for a smaller bag, that shouldn't be an issue.

What do you want out of your bag? Disc capacity, other stuff, water bottles?

I know I know... But... Cabelas. Mine has a couple hundred rounds on it and you'd never know. I did plastidip it though, so that probably helped. Annnd it was 50 bucks.

compact design but with great use of available space, so yes the grip does fit it, but I do like the look of the upper park stuff and I do carry less discs then most (most rounds I just sac it). Grip is logical for me as I truly hate these massive wide bags that then whack water bottle holders on the sides making them look twice as wide!
