It's surprising how quickly I've added both discs and thing's to carry disc's.

1. Innova standard shoulder bag for my main discs
2. Adidas sling bag to carry the overflow/wife's discs on 18 holes
3. Pintrest inspired converted all terrain stroller with the Innova strapped to the front, cooler in the middle and adidas bag behind that for the really long days.

I love the fact that I've only spent a grand total of about 40 bucks for all that. I've got 22 disc's (as of today, it's pay day so that'll be more later) and I can carry all of them with this setup if I want...

Started playing last fall. Bought the Innova starter bag that holds 10 discs. It now holds 8 D-line P2s and 2 Prime Deputies or 2 Hard Pures for putting practice.
Bought a bag at Academy AGame Disc Golf Backpack that has so many zippered pockets, mesh pocket sides, 3-6 putter slots up top, holds 20+ discs, 2 bottle holders.... awesome storage/capacity, for about $15 bucks on clearance. My buddy that started playing same time as me still uses his. Problem was the overall floppiness of the bag drove me crazy, so...
I bought a DD Sniper bag. Used some Amazon rewards points and paid only 30 instead of 60 for it. Loved it for a few months, well constructed, felt solid, stayed upright, but as I got through more rounds and wanted to start recording shots for finding errors, wanted to have some snacks, extra towels, possibly a stool later, etc etc it was coming up short.
So my current bag was my birthday gift in May. Wanted a large pack but wouldn't/couldn't pay over 200 for a Grip EQ or Upper Park, etc. at this early point in my game.
Found the Lat64 Luxury E3. Wow. For now, I was able to add in everything I wanted for a reasonable $150. If it holds up as well as I've read I'll probably be carrying this one a long time.

The Academy bag is holding backup/extra discs now and the Sniper is being filled out for my brother in law who has played a few rounds the past week with me and loving the game.
Beefing up sides with Corrugated plastic is recommended on the Academy Gear Backpack using for the sides and then glue on the sticky side Velcro to hold the Corrugated plastic to the bag. I have heard other flaws with some straps coming off the bag. Saw YouTube Videos of how to do this.

Three. A Slim Jim, a Crunch Box, and a Ranger. I usually use the Crunch Box, I wish I could get rid of the Ranger.

I keep hearing over and over that if you are not long in torso like Ricky W, the Latitude 64 Ranger bag is not comfortable. That limits the amount of people that would buy the bag.

Double Nutsac, Innova tourney with quads, and my innova 12 disc that's worn out.

Play with the double Nutsac always, unless it's a big tourney at a foreign course or I need to drag extra beverages and gear. A lot of times too I only take 5 or 6 in the first pouch of nutsac and play light.. Sometimes eight discs for league doubles the extra weight and bulk drag down my score more than not having ..X.. disc.

I never thought I would be here and not packing 20 discs.

It's a small bag from Latitude 64. Maybe they don't make it any more? I dunno.

The Ranger fits fine, and it's a nice bag. I just don't see the need to carry it over the Crunch Box when all it gets me is four more discs and extra storage I don't use.

They Make the Slim Jim still just call it the Slim on most sites dropping the Jim part. I think that has to do with the Name Slim Jim for the food.

That makes sense with the Ranger bag. I do not need a bag that big on storage I still need storage just not that much, was looking at an Oden bag at one point but went with the odd setup I mentioned. Switching from a Discraft Tournament Bag.

What about the extra strap and not having to carry it on your side like a murse. The carry is a big differentiator imo, not only the capacity.

Or do you have quad straps, haven't said that for a while
