No recommendations, because I'm more like a "Slightly doughy Spud Webb". Love that you could drop a Hulk Hogan reference and it made perfect sense.

Shift was too short. I liked the layout, but the waist strap was just always in the way, and if I tried to use it, it was above my hips right under my ribs.

Rebel is just too big compartment wise. The straps fit well, and I like the lack of waist belt, but I only carry around 10-12 discs thee days and the bag part is just too much for that, and a little heavy.

Anyone have a recommendation for a 10-14 disc bag, for a tall man, with good functionality?
I'm curious. What if you cut the waist straps off the shift?

I’d have a $120 bag with chunks cut off it.

One of the things I dislike about the majority of backpack bags is that they are squatty and ride too high.
I'm 6'-1" and went with the Fossa Skinny 2 earlier this year.
It's a few inches taller than the typical backpack design.
Give it a look, may suit your needs.

I 2nd the Fossa Skinny 2. It does want to carry more than 10 discs but you can put a filler bag in the main compartment to block it out. Skinny 2 feels awesome. https://youtu.be/SkR1UIjX77w

Is that a problem? Are you planning to resell? From what you said, everything about the bag is good except the straps. If so, the bag will be worth more to you with chunks cut off it, and then you don't have to go buy a different bag.

I generally prefer not to spend money on something only to immediately have to cut it up. I’d rather just get what works.

I'd be on a search for a brick and mortar store to go try on some bags. Even if you have to drive a couple hours, it seems like it would be worth it.
