(Referring to the Yme, backpack bag) I can kind of see the old Revolution backpack bag mixed with the Octo, maybe? However, I feel any bag being produced these days will “look” like bag X. There’s only so much more that can be done to make them different.

As far as the bag, I think it’s pretty cool. Guru definitely tried to take a unique approach to the bag. I’m sure the features are not unique by themselves, but the bag ‘package’ is definitely different.

I won’t buy one, as I have a Crunch, C and B Grip, all I’ll ever need, but I hope they do well with it. Obviously they are still developing, but add some color down the road

Not gonna lie, as soon as I saw dude pulling discs from the back of his bag I immediately thought of the failed Kahush kickstarter bag.

Happy to see this is a much more thought out design.

Yes the picture of the smaller bag the 10 starter looks like the Upper Parks Pinch backpack bag if made as a starter backpack bag. The other big bag looks like its own thing to me when seeing the inside of bag.

I would make a backpack different from all the rest. It would be a bag like the Innova deluxe bag but with a 4 point set for the backpack clip on straps that come with the bag, Straps like these https://www.amazon.com/Outcast-Boats...ackpack+straps or these https://www.amazon.com/Waterproof-Ad...7HEMR9WWH&th=1 but it would also come with a top strap for players that hate backpacks and copy the left side pocket to the other side, then put a bottle holder on each side on the ends of the pockets. The Innova Deluxe holds 15-20 discs and is plenty for a player. Also is a similar style to the Discraft Tournament bag that also holds 15-20 max, a better bag for disc golf being more durable on the bottom. This bag would be like nothing else on the market today.

The industry has been there and moved past that design already.

Nope it would be different from that, more backpack style close to the back, like a backpack with the straps being removable plus a strap to carry it like a shoulder bag. A different type of bag all together, not the dumb low slung design that the old big bags of the 2000's had that beat a sore spot on players lower back if they had too many discs in the bag. It would be better done then those old bags with Quad straps more like a backpack the way it sits on you but with a traditional shoulder bag shape to the bag and more padding on the part resting on the back.

I realized after this post Gateway makes bags like what I describe but with the straps permanent and no spot for a top traditional strap.
