Default Upper Park Shift vs. Rebel Comfort

I have an UPD Shift (version 4) and I am wondering if the Rebel is as comfortable as my shift. I have lower back problems and my first backpack bag was an Octothorpe which just killed me, even after a short round and not fully loaded. I can lug my shift around all day fully loaded and I don't wind up with any abnormal aches or pains. I am asking this because I'd like a bag that will hold a little more stuff. A few more discs and maybe more food and water. I would appreciate any insight that you wonderful people at DGCR have! Thanks.

I actually find my Rebel to be a more comfortable fit. The Shift sits a bit too high on my back and the Rebel seems to hit my lower back just right. The added weight of the Rebel makes me prefer the Shift in the summer, but the added storage makes me prefer the Rebel the rest of the year and at tournaments.

I had a Shift which I sold recently to a friend and bought a Rebel. I'd say the Rebel is just as comfortable, but I was surprised how much heavier it is than the Shift. I'd gotten used to the amazing lightness of the Shift and the Rebel definitely weighs a few pounds more, so that's something you should expect if you're switching. Otherwise, it's very comfortable.

I own a rebel and have worn a shift. They both kick ass. If I am going on a longer hike style course I will take the rebel every single time. I own 3 other bags I could carry but it is the best one of them all for comfort.

I have owned 2 Shifts, and tried several Rebels before getting the V4 Shift. For my body, the Shift is where it's at. I've literally tried every other DG BP on the market, and the Shift feels like heaven. Like wearing nothing.

The Rebel was cool, kind of like a heavier, longer Shift. It's about 2" too long for my torso however, and I end up with the bottom edge riding the top of mah cheeks! I also do not need to carry that many molds, and I only tend to go golfing for a half day at time so I don't need a backpack that I can load up for a 4 day trip

For me, the Shift is a lot more comfortable. This is most likely only because of the weight. I tend to use the Rebel only for tournament rounds. Then I'm carrying backup discs, a chair and/or an umbrella, snacks and two water bottles.
