Default Need a new bag

My current bag is pretty much toast, and it’s really too small for anything other than a quickie round anyway.

Was thinking a G-Series would be perfect, as I typically only carry 6-7 discs and a thermos, but I started to have some reservations about that because when I take the kids out it would be nice to have room for all their snacks and water bottles (not sure if the G does) and it might be nice to not have to swap out discs for glow rounds (another 5 discs which would max out the G).

Must haves:
Carry 8-10 discs minimum, maybe up to 15?
Water bottle space (1 for me, maybe a second for a kid)
Room for a hoodie and/or a rain coat
Room for snacks, mini, UV light w/extra batteries, pencils, scorecards, etc
Quality construction (Grip or better)
No carts
Thoughts?

Bonus points if it’s available in a completely obnoxious bright color.

Grip C or B series might be up your alley.

Ridge roller backpack is also great. They currently have factory 2nds and old styles on sale. Plenty of storage and it has a built in seat.

Pound Carlton? Certainly seems to check a lot of boxes.

I'm looking for a similar bag. One that's half discs and half normal backpack. I carry only about 7 discs but rather much jacket, drink, food and such stuff. A half-half bag would be nice.

Currently I have a Dynamic Discs Trooper bag. The upper compartment is filled with small stuff, the bottle holder is filled with towels, and the main is half discs and half other stuff ... which shuffles around a lot, unfortunately.

Grip CS made a good impression. I couldn't see it in real life, only videos, for how big the outer pockets really are. Anyways, it was over budget. :-(

I see there is a Grip retailer in Denver. I might have to make the trek while I’m there next week and fondle a G and a C.

It looks like it has a lot of potential, with a price to match. Have to peruse the Pound threads and see what there is to see.

Ok so...funny thing about Pound. They came from mystery ranch, which was started by Dana from Dana Design, who my dad worked for back in the 80s in Bozeman.

My everyday play bag is an Innova Standard bag. I carry about 9 discs on any given day.

I picked up a Grip CS for trips into the mountains where I would want things like a rain jacket, extra water, food, etc.

I used it as my carry on during my last vacation, and it was able to hold 17 discs, and a week's worth of clothes. I was impressed since it's not that big of a bag. So far, the construction looks very sound.

Regarding your trip to Colorado, we just slipped into winter yesterday. Cold temps, and snow last night. I hear it's going to last the week, so bring some warm clothes.

I tried out the G and the CS at flygreen. Ended up buying the CS. If I didn’t need to stuff a jacket or gloves in it so often, and didn’t need to take kids and their stuff once in a while, I would have gone with the G. I love the look of the pound, but it’s just a little spendy.
