Default NEW Gorilla Boy Simian

Has anyone purchased and used the new Gorilla Boy Simian? I believe the new version came out about 2-3 months ago.

What are the updates to the bag? Anything significant?

The bag has the side disc storage being more secure it looks different like something from The Innova Discarrier that people have used some of the really thin zipper pouches . The very bottom zipper is gone for a gap under the fame in opening as a majority of people who complained would shove a rain or wind jacket under the discs over stuff the pouch and then get zipper jammed or the zipper would just fail for no reason on the old models.

It is obviously different from both the upgraded knock off by Bagalane where one side has a cooler with bottom drain cap on the one side or the original knock off.

over 5 min limit.

The Bag is more usable but the disc storage in main part seems not as useful in this bag as compared to others with the same type of disc storage.

I ordered one today. I will give it the Youtube review treatment asap. Maybe 2 weeks of use, so 3 weeks from now or so. I will post a link here when I finish the video.

Have you ever seen one in real life?

One of my friends stuffs like 30 discs in his.

I think the main disc area is a great design.

Yeah it’s great. Easy in and out and it fits plenty. One of the more comfortable bags I have owned. I like the looks of the new model.

I stuck to my schedule. 3 weeks later as promised.
I just uploaded my review video to youtube : https://youtu.be/6j7h3tnW-F4

Feel free to ask any questions about the bag I may have missed or offer any critique of the video.
Thanks!

Unrelated to the Simian - any plans to review a cart? Would like to see you review the Crosslap Cubus.

Maybe. No current plans to pull carts. I have used 2 different zucas and a couple jogging strollers in the past. Unlikely by this fall. More likely next summer I might do some cart comparisons.
I just checked the Crosslap Cubus web page and couldn't figure out how to get one to the USA.
