It's SO freakin' close to being the perfect small backpack that people have been clamoring for. Another potential downside (aside from price) is that it doesn't appear to have connection points for quads.

I like the thoughtful design, but can't help but think they left out some little tweaks that would've made it totally stand alone from the competition.

I mean they advertised it as the bag with "YOU" in mind. Backpack straps and the ability to hold a 40oz hydroflask would be awesome. Not sure if it actually doesn't hold a 40oz hydroflask but it doesn't look like it will.

I've seen people use quads with only one connection point on each side.

Not sure how this would ride on your back with that type of set up though.

I'm sure someone will try it eventually.

I've had to do that myself after a connection point tore on an older bag. Let me just say it's a nightmare and totally defeats the functionality. I mean yeah, you can do it, but it's very difficult to get them on and off when they're setup like that.

Actually both with single strap as a clip on, could do both very well then I would think about getting it. So for shorter shots like putts or from basket to next tee unless you have a far walk then backpack. The other thing would I see the backpack straps for is from first drive to basket on most holes and possibly second even some third shots, depending on length of holes.

One big downside to one long strap is the risk for it to lay in the dirt most of the time. . .i probably going to take the strap of and just use the loop to carry it on the cource. . and i dont want the strap when i΄m on my bike, if the strap get tangled in the weel it would be very bad

I got mine in today and took it out for a round, and I am happy with my purchase. Its the same material and quality as bigger Grip bags, and I think they did a good job designing it to get the most space out of such a small bag. I was able to fill it with 2 putters up too in the putter pocket, 3 rocs in the upper sleeve, 5 drivers in the lower sleeve, and a zone in the front pocket. So 11 Discs but you could probably get up to 15 if they were all drivers. And filling the bag with Discs doesn’t affect the bottom storage or side pockets. Cell phone fits in the side pocket, but water bottles over 20-24 oz probably won’t fit. I would have enjoyed a backpack strap too but the shoulder strip didn’t bother me at all and seemed durable. Great option if you want a lightweight bag for 10 Discs or less with good storage, and want it to last more than a season or 2.

You may have convinced me. That's about how many discs and types I would be using. How tight is it when getting discs in and out?
