Still never found a banana in my bag though.
I have played in rain several times being it can or can't happen where I live even if the weather is saying one thing but you get another like a single small rain cloud or a day that is raining lightly as per the forecast and the like. South Dakota is in a spot where 3 major fronts often come together making it hard to tell what weather might be. I mean South Dakota has the Record outside of a town in the Black Hills for largest single hailstone and the one in the 1960's or 1970's for the largest weather change in a 6 hour period.

That is Bandanna I found I was not using for other things unlike most of the rest. Stupid click the top offer in the Spell check on Google Chrome.

I try to keep my bag dry most of the time.

I don’t, but I’ll play wet rounds with my Vibram bag(Solace/Ascent/Notch/Obex/Crag and a Megasoft Swan if it’s super wet and not a tournament. Otherwise I’ll just load up on towels and put some dryball in the bottom of my bag.

Typically in rainy conditions I just have a raincoat with a birdie bag shoved in one pocket. That plus an umbrella, rain fly, and lots of towels means I don't have to learn more than 1 bag. I throw a lot fewer discs when it's raining too - only using my most trusted discs

I just throw my DX Rocs more often. DX is decently grippy, and discing down makes since when grip/footing is an issue.

Yup. When I build a bag, I like to be able to bring it anywhere and be confident. A couple discs might move in/out, but plastic types are pretty consistent.

Having said that, I generally don't change my bag for wet weather or wet ground conditions. I might get the bigger bag and put more OS discs in it alongside my core discs, but that the only thing I do...
Why OS discs? I would think you would add the opposite if you're not getting as good of a run-up and with less grip.

I should've said I put the OS discs in the bag "for windy conditions". Apologies for the lack of clarity, there.
