Sure I can do that. One sec.

It’s about 5 pounds empty. Pretty typical for a disc golf backpack

Ok, Thank you. The RR website says "about 6.1 lbs"(2.7 kilos). I've been weighing many bags recently and you might be surprised how much that weight effects energy level over the course of 3 or 4 rounds in 2 days. For comparison here are some other bag weights: Fossa Zany Pro 4.1k, Gorilla boy simian 2.7k, Pound Octothorpe 1.84k, Pound Carlton 1.73k, Upper Parks Shift 1.13k.
I would be interested to know exactly what the RR bag weighs on an accurate digital scale. It would be very impressive if it is lighter than a Simian and has a much larger capacity than a Simian.

My Ridge backpack arrives tomorrow. What mods have you done to the bag? I've seen the YouTube videos about spreading the frame and modifying the seat with zip ties (which I do not yet fully understand). What other ways have you improved the bag?

I played my first round with the Ridge bag today, and I left the course feeling really good with my purchase. It's stout, well made, sturdy and comfortable. I also had very fast and helpful communication with the company, and it shipped the same day.

Some of the features that I think set it apart from the rest are:

+ Stability - the frame, feet and shape make for a very sturdy bag. Doesn't tip over easy, even on inclines
+ Seat height - I don't feel like I'm crouching when I sit. My hips are above my knees.
+ Exterior seat cushion - it attaches to the D rings with Velcro, so it can be taken off easily to use as a knee pad.
+ Grab handle - big, comfortable, durable and doesn't tip the bag too severely when lifted.
+ Carry comfort - it feels really good on the back with good padding.

Some things I think it lacks:

+ Side pockets are a bit shallow
+ No inner pockets or compartments
+ Even with the rubberized bottom, I worry about the bottom zipper and flap accumulating mud and water, potentially leaking into the bag and caked mud in the zipper flap drying and crumbling indoors. (Any ideas???)

Small gripes aside, I'm super happy with my new bag. I will probably plastidip the bottom of the pockets and bottle holders and maybe around the bottom zipper unless I can come up with a better, more watertight solution (Ideas??).

The email response I received came from:
ridgeroller@yahoo.com

How did it break?

I've considered a number of bottom zipper sealing solutions, and the one the seems the best for the functionality of the zipper if I ever need to use it again (highly doubtful) is Gorilla heavy duty duct tape. My plan is to tape down the fabric flaps to the bottom of the bag and then plastidip over the tape.

I'm wide open to alternatives, suggestions, tips and/or tricks
