All in all I'm not a fan of starter bags, because my 1st Innova bag fell apart after 3 months of use.
My partner suffered the same fate with his Fade bag. I can confidently say these bags will last much longer than 3 months!

I can get you a photo tomorrow when it is light out.

Also I figure I should introduce myself, I am Jon Richardson, CEO of Upper Park Designs. And my two partners Hobie and Pat both give their cheers to the disc golf community. We are excited to be here!
Good on you sir for a straight answer to that question. You have gained one supporter regardless of product. These look like cool niche bags and I hope to see you expand in our market. I believe bags over discs or anything else are the low hanging fruit of disc golf equipment for manufacturers.

Welcome to DGCR!

Welcome to DGCR!

Agreed. The disc golf community is begging for quality bags! Of all shapes and sizes!

Sorry for the slow reply. Here is a picture of the Focus loaded with 8 discs and standing using the waist pockets. There is nothing in the pockets for the picture but the bag stands even better when there is.

That's pretty impressive. For hot summer days that might be a dream. Thanks for the photo!

A new user of the Shift bag just posted a quick video overview of the bag. Check it out here!

Very interested in the shift bag. Would love some more pictures of all the pockets on the outside opened up, and a solid shot of the inside. Very curious if you can fit 20 in the whole bag with out to much trouble, I know it would be pushing it. I really like the concept though.

The more I hover over the Shift bag, the more I'm liking it. I wish I didn't have 2 DIY bags already. I've been keeping up on the Facebook pictures and YouTube videos. For a 12 disc user like me, it seems light, comfortable, and all of my discs are right there to grab. I'm not a big space whore, so I don't need Prodiscus-sized extra storage.

Although I'm not 100% sold on the waist strap and side pockets. For a hiking bag, absolutely. For a bag that I pick up, take off, and put down as frequently as a DG bag, the waist strap doesn't really offer any solid use. It would honestly boil down to whether or not the strap and side pockets are just "not in the way" or "downright annoying" when not being used. They do gain points for helping the bag stand on it's own, though.

I have a birthday in early March, and Upstate NY is blanketed in snow. So I'm thinking of nabbing one then...as long as the price doesn't go too far out of whack after the "holiday pricing" ends.
