It was copied stitch by stitch...

Oh whoops! Yes, I misquoted you. Should have been stitch BY stitch, not stitch FOR stitch. (I'm not sure what the technical difference is, but you are correct that I mixed up the wording.) Sorry for the misquote, ODRB.

^ This is what it looks like when a person acknowledges that they made a mistake, and works to correct the error.

Now back to the topic at hand: is anyone setting up a GoFundMe so that Stardoggy can get a SQUATCH bag and write us a detailed review?

In this case I don't feel the "China vs U.S" is the main problem.... the problem is a $500 backpack...makes it very easy to undercut.

LOL

If you’re gonna use quotes, a least quote something I ACTUALLY WROTE. Wow. I said “I would pay extra” …which I did.

How do you think the bag costs 1/2? Because China workers are paid more??? Do you think there are worker’s rights in Chinese factories??

Uh oh....Pound just emailed me back saying 90%+ of the materials are manufactured in the U.S.

So where is that other >10% coming from?

Let's rage and Boycott!

Totally agree.

It's about the value of a product....just because it's a mostly U.S. product doesn't mean we should be guilted into paying $500 for a backpack. It doesn't make us less American or "part of a problem"...

It's a backpack bro.....a backpack

Apologies for the misquote... "pay extra" could be more specific... "pay double" feels like a more accurate representation.

But “it’s just a…” on everything you buy. It’s a backpack that I’ll use 3-4 times a week if not more in the summer. For a sport I love. So sure it’s a backpack. **** man, a JANSPORT is only 15.99 at Walmart or on Amazon. Should just buy that.

It’s just a backpack.

Did anybody encourage a boycott of products that are not American made? I missed that part.

Grip bags are made in China I think. Good design. Good bags. Seemingly good company. I know I liked the Grip I had, and they treated me right when mine had a problem. Upper Park is the same I think. Others too.

I know I was merely suggesting we shouldn't give a windfall (or any pats on the back) to these clowns who were willing to steal a great design from a company that supports the disc golf community. If you don't want to pay $500 for a bag, don't. There are plenty of places to get good <$250 bags from companies who have earned your business and done right by other folks in the DG community.

True....hell, if the walmart/amazon version is $15 and an American company has one for double...that's fine, I will pay $30...

BUT when those numbers escalate for a high priced luxury item with little functional difference then cheaper backpacks....I'm gonna have to make a choice.....everyone should stop and think...

Does Pound know the average American income is 32k?

It's a week's worth of pay, for the average american, for a backpack.

Oh....so you are just mad to be mad lol...

They are not the same bag....so it ends your OMD rants altogether. You have clearly forgot how the free market works.

The example of these 2 bag companies is replicated in almost every product in the u.s.

It's like when you go to the grocery store....you can get fresh made artisan bread that costs $15 a loaf or get the supermarket off-brand for $2.50.

BUT these bags are marketed as having the same ingredients(material). So even more of a reason to go with the "off-brand".

In two years, let's set them side by side and see.

Yup. There are many DG bags you can buy for Squatch's $245 pricetag. You are going to have to make a choice about who you support with your hard earned dollars.

Good thing that, with a Squatch budget, you could buy literally (and I mean that literally) ANY other DG bag on the planet except a Pound. You know, from any of the many many other DG companies who didn't rip off another decent, hard-working member of the DG community.
