Yeah the peace sign patch was $12. The Roc patch I had, and the sign material was free.

Thanks everyone for justifying my cheapness!

The fact that Boombah sells those packs brand new for $50 makes me very curious what the markup is on the disc golf specific backpacks that are $150+.

I like to think it's just a simple numbers game.

More peeps play softball/baseball and hunt/fish than play disc golf. They can make a crap load more bags without fear of them not selling, thus get a much cheaper price per unit.

Still curious though.

I'm sure disc bag manufacturers turn a fairly decent profit, but they only sell in the hundreds (I'm sure Boombah's in the 1000's at least, and it's not their only source of revenue). I don't necessarily blame them, but, like you, I'm curious about that as well.

This should answer your question. Look familiar?
