Default Best bag!?

I've been researching hard the last few days on best bag for myself. I play I few times a week when the weather is nice. I like the ease of getting discs in and out of my bag. I've narrowed it down to 3 bags that I like for different reasons. All the bags are under 150 which is what I was looking for. Please help with opinions on which of the 3 would be best in your opinion. I've always had good luck with Ogio bags in the past for other sports and travel so like the fact that they are in the disc golf world with dynamic discs. But that shift bag looks like it'd be perfect for getting discs in and out.

I haven't used the smaller dynamic bags, but the shift is great bang for your buck. I compared it to some larger bags a while ago

I have heard great things about the Shift bags. I use an early GRIP but if I were to change I would probably give them a run just from what people I trust that have told me about them. Always best if you can actually test one out for fit.

I'll preface this by saying I absolutely love my Shift, it's my favorite backpack (I also have a Grip L-Series and a Lat64 DG Luxury).

If one of your big concerns is ease of access, the Shift may not be your best choice if you're carrying more than 15 discs. Because of the fact that there's not a single large compartment to hold your discs, it's more of a snug fit all around. There are really 7 individual pockets (3 down the middle and two on each side). Each one can very comfortably hold two discs. You can squeeze a third one in, but then it starts getting really tight really fast.

HAPPILY sold my Shift after purchasing a Fossa Tana Pro. You can go for just the Tana, but the Pro model for just a bit more ($145 vs $110) money comes with a rainfly, 1000D instead of 600D, rubberized waterproof bottom, additional zippered "valuables" pocket inside large storage pocket, wider straps, thicker (more padding) straps, and in a classy all-black color combo. **May have forgotten some details.

Practically gave away my Shift to a buddy. He made me take a few extra bucks beyond my insistent asking price.


EDIT: I know it's not in your choice of three, but it is under your $150 price limit.

1 year warranty? Eh... MVP bags ive sold are lifetime and purchased UPD due to how they handled customer service issues in the past.

Unfamiliar with MVP bags, haven't been recent on much DG stuff in the past year or two.

If their price point and warranty are great, I hope the bags are too. That said, I know for a fact I don't need the warranty on my Tana Pro.


EDIT: Voyager seems okay, but I wouldn't spend an extra $15 on it over my TP. The other two bags aren't backpack bags = pass.

Not familiar at all with fossa stuff just was surprised to see that on their website. I know you dont talk BS my man. Only MVP bag i have had personally was a breaker which is a legit ass small bag. Otherwise no complaints on sales. Im waiting for MVP backpack 2.0.. Never like first runs lol

I agree with Brad, the Shift may be cumbersome the higher up in disc capacity with only those 7 individual pockets. On the flip side, your load won't be jumbling around if you're not at or near fully loaded like with the single large competent bags. If you've done your research then you know why everyone praises the UPD Shift. They've got the most upside in your narrowed down list of bags.
