Thumbs up Fusion Bag Review or Sorry Gorilla Boy

Okay here goes. This is the first part of my review. I intend to make a first impression review and then add more after a few rounds. I was gonna play this evening but its raining In any case I digress......

So I tried to buy a Gorilla Boy bag but they were out of stock and according to Gorilla Boy they didnt know when they would have the color I wanted (multicam) or second choice (black) in stock due to the lack of available capital for materials. He said he had some bills to pay first. For a guy that wanted a bag that I could sit on and had good storage that was not a good answer. So I did an awful thing and bought the Fusion bag. I know haters will hate. But like I said I needed a bag now not when Gorilla Boy could get around to taking my money.

First impression THIS BAG IS AWESOME!!!!
Thats right I said it. Awesome. Now I have never seen a Gorilla Boy bag (and Im really wondering if anyone else will either)but the Fusion does appear to be identical to what I saw on the GB website.

The straps of the bag and moveable pads are super nice.
The craftsmanship appears to be excellent very heavy duty
The storage capability is vast and very well thought out.
I have about 18 discs in it right now and other things you need.
The water bottles carriers will hold 40oz hydroflasks no problem.

Best of all the seat!! Im no small guy. Im a big boy. Im 6ft tall 295 pounds. It holds my big body just fine So I have that going for me which is nice.

Too sum up this bag rocks and if GB doesnt get their business together everyone will be saying Gorilla who? Sooner than later.

Will update after a few rounds so we can see where the rubber meets the road so to speak.

Im happy to answer questions and ignore haters

Happy discing!!

Dude for sure. I think it’s going to be great in every way but I will let you know as soon as I get some rounds in. It’s the only way to be sure.

Okay so I have played several rounds with this bag now and guess what? Now I think it rocks even more.
One of the really surprising things I noticed is that when you set the bag down to sit on it it doesn’t pick up dirt or mud. All of my rounds have been damp and I have been using the seat a lot. No dirt on the bottom. Pretty cool.
The next great thing I have come to appreciate is that the load adjustment straps at the top of the main shoulder straps hold the shoulder straps up off of the ground and in the open position making it very easy to don and doff without trouble or a mess. #no more quad shocks!
Also, as a result of the bag sitting upright it is just a slight knee bend to pick it up as opposed to bending over to collect your quad strapped bag off the ground after every shot. The energy savings adds up especially after multiple round days even more with the built in super comfy padded seat.
Further, there is zero indication of stress at any point on the bag and I had this sucker loaded with about 18 discs, various other bits and pieces like a retriever, phone and keys including dual 40oz hydroflasks. The weight distribution when worn with both straps combined with the adjustable padding makes carrying larger loads a breeze in comparison to a smaller load in my fade gear Crunch Box with Phoenix Quadshox. When carrying on one shoulder you really appreciate how well padded the straps are.
So I would highly reccomend this bag especially since a Simian is currently a very hit or miss to mostly out of stock miss with no sense of urgency to fill orders on the part of Gorilla Boy situation.

If you have been on the fence about this bag. Don’t be. It’s worth it as much as a $150 disc golf bag can be.
Drive for the show. Putt for the dough!!

No. Buy from a company that didn’t rip off the hard work of another. Thread.

You did see where I tried that right. The man said not for sale. I could purchase the Fusion. So I did. Yay capitalism!

That being said I do respect your opinion as well. Truly the only reason I did it was because simian was unavailable. I hate that for Gorilla Boy but I needed the bag. So I figured I could at least give the Fusion a fair review. I hadn’t seen one yet.

I saw that and I really don't want to sound like I'm slamming you personally. Just putting it out there that since they made no modifications to improve upon his design that all the positive things you have to say about the bag are a result of the GB being a good bag.

So the ceiling for this review was:

Pros- As good as the GB.

Cons- No defects from being a knockoff. And lost profits to the company that created the bag.

The only common flaw I have seen of the Bagalane Fusion is that people cram the bottom zipper thing too full and they had to cut the zipper off to get the sweatshirt they crammed in there out and they often sew on about as heavy duty a zipper if they did not just cut out the whole pocket. Then others that had due to playing in snow/mud have nothing in that spot luckily but now have a spot on the bag that is useless.

If the zipper was not addressed in the Gorilla Boy Simian, then the Simian is going to have those same problems.
