Top of that looks like the voodoo spinal tap a bit.

Actually not really. This bag uses 600D polyester, most quality DG bags are using 1000D+ nylon. Huge durability and cost difference. Then because you have such thicker material to work with you need a heavy grade machine which costs more money.
Are they over priced, yes. But not ridiculous. And as the sport grows the prices on gear will come down as conglomerates take over.

yeah really DG bags are kinda crazy priced for what they are... I use a laptop backpack which has 2 sections in the middle, 3 outer pockets, a putter pocket, 2 water bottle holders, gel padded back and straps as well as spots for pencils, pens, score cards and holds 15 discs fine with a rubber bottom and water resistant exterior. $20 on clearance after school sales last year'

edit: and my bag is made to protect a $500+ investment not some plastic so quality? ehh i think its fine.

It was a joke, really. But I understand your point.

i've looked into starting a bag company and have alot of great ideas that are not out there. but man the start up is huge tbh. and there is little expectation for success. And the time involved if you make them yourself leaves you with little for other things. I used to think GorillaBoy was slow as heck, but now I understand.
I think that's what drives the cost up is that people want to get their investment back quick. DG is still in its infancy for building a thriving business around. Maybe if my new venture works out I can have the capital to start the DG bag end of it.
