You gotta one strap bro, even if everyone else is two strapping.... Yeah, longer walks constitue the backpacj going all the way on. Sometines just grab it by the handle mostly just one strap it (with my counter weight arm as to not burn up my shoulder too soon)

I would have bought a real disc golf bag the Super hero h2O model if I did not find the bag I use with a seat built into it. That bag alone cost was $65.
Fossa tana=$80 stool=$20 being able to pull of that setup within your price point=priceless

I hate to say this, but I get Casey's point. If you've owned a bag/stool combo and a Simian they're not even in the same ballpark. I disagree on the cost though. I bought a squirrel monkey several years ago, and it's the bag (of 8) I use most when I don't bring the cart. It cost as much as Casey's setup but still looks like new. That made me buy a heavily-used Simian for $100. I loved it for a few months before deciding to keep the Ergo, sold it to a friend for what I paid for it, and he's still using it. It still looks like it's in the same condition as when he bought it. I believe the Gorilla Boy Simian is worth every penny.

Yes but it was out of my price range. At least what I was trying to look for originally does not exist anymore anywhere. My dad had a Fishing seat with saddle bags on it for his discs and some small pouches for other stuff. The set up has a single carry strap I would have taken off for Disc Golf Quad straps of some kind. Dad still uses the Single strap for his bag, and could use quad straps as they are more comfortable. Saw two guys when on vacation Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware using this same set up my dad has now, the fishing seat with saddle bags and small pouches on it.

The other issue I’m having is that to get my arm through the second strap it has to be fairly loose. Then the bag rides too low. Guess I’m used to higher riding / snug fitting camping backpacks.

Also I’ve never used the chest buckle

I go with 1 strap unless I'm going long distances, mostly because of shoulder issues (frozen left, impinged rotator right). Extremely short distances get the handle.

Been rocking an Odin since they came out, I got in on the pre-order
