Default Pound Carlton bag review

Hi everyone. I recently bought a Pound Carlton bag with the intention of giving a long detailed review on youtube. I thought it might belong here as a resource for all you bag nerds like me:

https://youtu.be/uNraVV1s6yw

Feel free to throw any comments, questions, or requests my way. I have an Upper Parks Shift on its way for the same test and review process.

Also I have a longer review on that same channel for the newest version on the Pound Octothorpe:

That thing looks badass. Like the colors you chose as well.

Man, they might have done it made a bag that is better than a grip.

I had an original design Grip, then an A and a C Grip. Was a pretty big fan. As soon as the Octothorpe touched my hands and back, it was clear the Grip had been out done.

The materials, design, and comfort of the Carlton are unmatched. Plus, they're hand made in the USA.

That's the color combo I want!! (I'm going to build with maroon zippers though)

Really cool bag and nice review. I'll be ordering one of these soon enough.

If indeed the quality, comfort and functionality is superior it seems that the price suggests that as well.

Aren't these about a 100 bucks more than a grip?

I think it's an odd design...why have things hidden away? I do love the crazy colorways they have going on, but prefer to have all my discs on display and have them be the highlight of the bag.
I'd wouldn't mind owning an Octothorpe, though.

Anyone can take a sack, throw some strips of fabric on it, and call it a backpack.
It takes some actual experience to design a backpack with good straps, proper support, and proper weight distribution.

I guess you can put me down as the only one that doesn't like anything about this bag, other than the quality of workmanship, I guess. Maybe it's comfortable too, I don't know. But...
I don't like the velcro insert, or the insert storage design that you have to cram stuff into, making the discs in the main compartment equally crammed in and hard to access. If I was gifted this bag, I doubt I would even use the insert.

Seemed to me the goal was to make a quality bag that basically just looked different than most other backpack bags.

Alright, let me have it....

I mean you do have some good points, at the same time though you don’t necessarily know if everything is going to be cramped until you put your own stuff in there. If you saw the videos Eli did, even with stuff in the center pocket and discs on the outside pockets, nothing looked difficult to insert or remove. I’m using a grip bx and a ridge roller with r3 box currently I was nuts over this bag while it was being designed. I don’t think Levi would overlook something as important as cramped storage.

Nice and long Review

I have a Octo and a BX15 . . i would like a Carlton but my two bags complement each other fine.

There are a few things i like to change on both my bags. . but overall i like them both
