First impressions are positive. Usual high quality feel, but I'm already concerned about the height.

Why so concerned about the Height?

The one thing about the 'G' I don't like is the Putter pocket. I can see it's a carry-over from their backpack line, but what works on a backpack, doesn't really translate well to a shoulder bag.

The putter pocket sits up higher than the middle row of discs, and it's also separated from the middle row by the pocket itself as well as the cover that gets tucked in. This takes up room for at least one, maybe two more discs.

The height bothers me when the bag is on my shoulder because it feels like the putter pocket is right under my arm.

I'm still learning more about what I do and don't like about this bag, so maybe my opinion will change, but right now I'm eagerly awaiting the release of the G2.

They need to make an option with built-in backpack straps.

Like a true mini backpack bag.

How does this work out for you? You have the two hooks hooked on to the handle? Id like to see a pic of how you have it hooked up better. Just curious how this has been working out for you.
Thanks

Do you mean me? I have the hooks attached to the side mounts. The handle itself sits higher up behind the putter pocket. It's another thing I don't really like since it sticks out and rubs your side when walking.

I finally gave in a picked up the G series.

I have been using a double Sac for the last year or more.

My four year old son has been playing more with me and I needed more water storage but not an uptick in disc storage. I have a Voodoo MOJO but fully loaded that thing is heavy on one shoulder.

Time will tell how I like the G but initially I am really pleased with the build quality. I don't however like having to tuck the "lid" in bc I think it may eventually warp being constantly smashed in for lack of a better term.

I'll update for those still on the fence with the G series.

This is one of my complaints as well. The 'lid' and the wall between the putter pocket and main compartment also take up room that could be filled with one or two discs instead.
