Admittedly, I too scoffed at a camelbackish design until I used one. Rarely have I played a course without tee signs to hang them from, benches or concrete tees to keep them off the dirty ground. Worst case scenario, one could always bring an "s" hook or use a folding stool.

If Pound decided to design their own version of a camelbackish minimalist backpack, my bet would be that they'd sell out their inventory faster than you can say Guss Chiggins.

I don't mind the integration of a camelback. But a bag not standing up has so many inherriant issues. And to piggyback off of that, yeah most courses have tee signs and benches. But what about your second and third shot per hole, those you'll be laying the bag down on the ground either back up or down, neither good options. So when laying it down I'd only assume that the mouthpiece is going to hit the ground. Or you place the bag discs down? The whole thing is weird as can be for a disc bag. Everyone hates when their bag tips over, right? Well the focus is meant to be used tipped over all the time lol

Anyway. Pound bags, pretty cool eh

FWIW, the Hydrapaks that you can buy through the Pound website have a great mouthpiece cover. Not that I'd WANT to set mine down in the mud, but I think it would be well protected in 1/4-1/2" of mud before the actual mouthpiece got dirty at all.

I've gotten to the point where I never even close the hose valve, I just pop on the mouthpiece cover and that's good enough.

I sold all three of my Grip Bags. I’m currently using my Delta Cart. I borrowed my friends bag (Octothrope) for a couple rounds. I’ve decided to get a LB pound. I’m trying to carry 28 discs (6 putters, 6 mids, 16 drivers). Should I get a OctoHaul or Octothorpe?

Get the Haul if you want to carry that many and have room for goodies, jackets, extra towels, etc.

Yeah. You could cram 28 discs in the Octothorpe, but you wouldn't have access to all of them all the time. They would fill up the side pockets and you wouldn't have space for much else.

Octohaul will allow you to have better access and carry more stuff in addition to the 28 discs.

Really wanted a new bigger bag to pair with my shift. I was between the rebel and the octo. The rebel production is seemingly on hold indefinitely so I'm not sure how long the wait would be. I didn't want to pay the extra for the custom so when the orange and charcoal sexto came out I couldn't resist. I caved and bought one with an extra insert and a toolbox. I'm really excited as I've had my eyes on the right octo for a year or two now.

I found it odd I had to pay so much for shipping after a $400 order, Guess I am spoiled with Amazon, DGC, and running warehouse. Also surprised it doesn't come with a rainfly at that price. I figured I would just not buy the rainfly as I rarely play in the rain anyway. Do you guys find the rainfly a must?

Congrats on joining the club! All the money will be worth it. As for the rainfly, I wouldn't say it's a "must", but it is the best rainfly on the market and serves as further proof that Levi is a genius.

If you don't plan to play in the rain then rainfly is an unnecessary luxury at best. Even in light drizzle, the pocket flaps do a decent job of keeping the discs protected, and a good towel or 2 will help get you through most light weather events.

Here in Montana, the weather can change so fast that I have the rainfly in a side pocket pretty much full time. But, I know it's not like that everywhere.

Just curious, what's your plan for the extra insert? The new Octos come with 1 insert, which I use but it does eat up a lot of storage space in the lower side pocket. I would not want 2 inserts. (But, I also have an insulated tube that holds 2-3 beverage cans, that fits perfectly in the tall side pocket next to a rain jacket. So that kind of takes the place of an extra insert, I suppose.)

Aren't the zippers waterproof or at least water-resistant anyway? Since you'll only be golfing in rain when it sneaks up on oyu, it sounds like that would be sufficient for a fair weather golfer (I'm one too).
