Best backpack style bag

I'm looking for a backpack style bag at some point and I would like some suggestions from experience.

I do not want a duffel style bag with quad shock, I am looking for a true backpack style bag preferably under $150.

Thanks in advance.

I just typed in "backpack" in the search and by page two I had seen maybe 15 threads about which backpack bag was best or which one to get. You might try that for some quick opinions and answers. It's a pretty popular topic.

I'll give you my opinion with your template for my Grip bag though.

Bag: Grip EQ large tour bag
Biggest Pro: It's comfortable and holds a good amount of discs in an intuitive way. Often copied, never bested.
Biggest Con: Could use a little more storage and clearance for putting discs away.

Other thoughts:it's $200 but if you are like me you believe in paying for quality. I think it's worth the money.


Here's a link to a thread with the exact same price point as you too. Might have a lot of answers in it.

I see some good suggestions in there. If anyone else wants to put up some mini reviews from bags they actually own I would still appreciate them.

I am not completely opposed to paying over $150, but something like the Golf Mahal is overkill if you know what I mean.

You are very close to the price of a nice Grip bag. (and I suspect there will be plenty available in few months when a new model comes out.) I would pay another 20 bucks & get that. We all fuss about how much it is, but we spend $100's on discs without complaining. It's just that one is lump sum, and the other sneaks up on you.

ps-the main reason I bought a GRIP was because it held the least discs, but I think playing with 15 + 2 is plenty now. If you're looking for more I def think PF is the way to go.

I have a review of the physical flight contender in my signature. However I am also putting together a video comparing all of the major backpacks on the market and will be producing it in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully that will give you an idea of what each bag entails in which bag you think would fit your style

Please repost that info here for the op so he doesn't have to click through.

I'm in no hurry so that sounds great.
