After a full season with my Octo, I have no regrets. Still love it.

They added the options for wider pockets and scorecard holder pocket right after I got mine. If those options were available when I ordered, I probably would have gone for the scorecard holder pocket. But I tend to disagree with doth_savek: I wouldn't want the bigger haul pockets (or the full Octo-haul for that matter). I like the size as-is.

Normally in the winter I would store my Flak3, and use my old Revo Carolina & quads for the winter season instead. Lighter and more comfy for trekking through crappy conditions. This year I don't see the point, I'll just take a couple discs out of my Octo to lighten the load.

I'm looking to order one of these once the November restock happens.

What exactly are the wide long side pockets?

Thank you kindly, looks like that's totally worth it to me.

Anyone else who comes with that question the TLDR is that the tall side pocket, measured from the front face of the bag across, is about 3/8ths of an inch or so wider.
Which assuming it's roughly 18" high, and varies from 8" to 4" wide, would lead to a volumetric increase of 39 cubic inches I think? Which is 0.63 liters
