I thought I saw something on Fossa's Facebook about a $79 sale on their original backpack bag.

The Fossa is $79.00 which is a great deal. I bought one a two years ago and it is fantastic. It starts out a little stiff making it a little difficult to get discs in and out at first but it breaks in nicely. No problems with it at all now.

I think this is a matter of spend more get more. If you can afford the UPD, it is always better to invest a little more in a quality product. And although I don't have one myself, there are plenty of people on here that can sing the praises of UPD. Not saying Fossa is trash or anything like that, but UPD has a sterling reputation for quality and practicality.

Thanks guys. So think I am going to go with the upd shift. I like the style and how it kinda makes disc golf more stylist. Plus I am not planing on carrying that many disc.

UPD is an absolutely solid choice. I know them personally, and they definitely do their homework as far as comfort and quality; never a bad choice

Have a Fossa Pro, decent bag but it's a little too short and squatty and as I'm tall, I can never seem to find just the right spot for it to sit comfortably. I'm always fidgeting with it.

Was real interested in the Shift, but that waist belt with the pockets was a deal breaker. Had a hiking backpack with those once and they drove me nuts, had to cut them off. Always irritated me when walking. Never seen a Shift other than pics, do those waist belt pockets come off?

the pockets don't but the straps come off. i ditched the straps right away, but i find the pockets to be great for my wallet and keys and my cell phone.

I ended up hating the Shift side pockets too. I took the straps that come with them and flipped them backwards and clipped the straps together beneath the bag. That way I still have the pockets for small items (though hard to get to) but they are out of the way. I also didn't like where the main carrying straps attached on those pockets, with the pockets out regular it kinda pulls them even more into your way as you put the bag on. I cut the main straps from the upper middle part of the pockets and resewed (with fishing line) them to the bottom seam of the pockets right against the back.
