I put all discs in the main compartment and use the rest of the bag for storage, works out great.
This bag gives great options for set up.

I'll use the pocket in front of the main compartment for a light jacket or other layer of clothing
side zip pocket for valuables and snacks
Other side pocket for retriever, spare towel, rainfly and umbrella if needed
Top pocket is for birdie bag, towel, and other accessories

Oooh interesting I didn't think about that! Mine should arrive on the 3rd and I can't wait to try out all the options

Got my bag yesterday and can't wait to get out on the course with it. I was definitely overthinking the storage! There is a ton of space in this thing. It should be easy enough to throw a sweatshirt on something in the main compartment with 10-12 discs not counting the upper pockets. I was worried about the discs not standing up without something in there filling space but it doesn't seem like a very big deal.

Will have to try it out and see if I want to add anything but so far seems very flexible!

I lost a shoulder strap 75% torn at the top seam. Purchased in April, 2021. I contacted Fossa today to see if they have suggestions.

I have heard of that happening with the skinny 2, especially the gray ones. They apparently addressed the issue with the new skinny 2.3 by reinforcing the connection points for the straps.

They seem like a great company and I bet you get a new bag as a replacement.

Bummer to hear your strap ripped. Mine is the newer 2.3 version and this is what the strap attachments look like for reference. Not sure how different it is but it feels pretty sturdy.

Fossa got back with me and I shipped my bag back to them (my dime, which is fine). They said they will repair my bag. I specifically asked if I’d get this same bag back, or a different one. He said they will fix my bag and return.

Update: Fossa received my bag today. They said it should be repaired and shipped back tomorrow. So far I am impressed.

Good to hear very quick turnaround! I wonder if they will re-do the straps in their new 2.3 approach.

If they make the bags in-house, man I hope so! If the bags are made elsewhere, I’m curious how they repair. I’m guessing there was a ‘tab’ or extended section of fabric that went inside the bag to be stitched. Mine tore at the seam, so there isn’t extra left to re-stitch. Looking back at this pic, the strap was only torn halfway across.
