Default New DIY bag to replace Cabela's?

Check this bag out. Similar to the Cabela's one, but there are some differences. Big concern is whether or not a putter (or two) would fit in the front pocket above the sunglass holder. I think the lower compartment should fit discs.

Nearest Bass Pro is just under 3 hours from me - probably won't be there to check it out until after Christmas. Anyone actually touched this one?

It looks like the bag uses the 3600 tackle boxes so it will probably not be the right size to hold discs. If you are looking for a bag try to find one that uses the 3700 boxes.

I'm not a fisherman, so I don't know the nuances. The Cabela's XPG bag (may it RIP) holds 4 3600 series tackle boxes, and the discs fit in well enough (with the mods as listed on that thread). My Cabela's is going strong, but if it ever wears out, am always looking for an alternative…..

Specs say it's 9" deep, so should fit discs. Back and straps look nice. Looks like a Flak shape. Not sure about the top compartment, looks like cooler insulation. Side storage likely useable but not ideal. I like the mesh pocket on one side and velcro straps on the other. Decent looking bag, might be a solid DIYer.

its about time, this bag was supposed to be out in september. altho it says 9" deep, that is not the interior pocket size, there is about a 1"+ pocket on the outside of the front flap. but ya it also wont work cause its 3600 series boxes

measurements should be 11" W x 7" H x 8" D

Yeah, depth specs are misleading. I always get the bag in hand first. If that front pocket allows for some extra room in the front compartment, it still might function. But that is why I usually stick with the 3700 tackle boxes as a rule of thumb.

I stopped by there, and there was one on the shelf. It looked like it could work - the bottom might be tight, but if you built a cage it would probably work. What I didn't like is that you can't put a putter up high. That zipper on a curve is definitely NOT wide enough for a putter. You could put one in the pocket on the flap, but it would fall out every time you opened the flap.

This bag looked like it had potential, you could use that pocket to probably hold 3 putters easy. I am not a fan of how it looks, so I think I would pass on this, but it may be an option at the right price.
