Default Recommend me a bag

Alright, it’s time to find a good, comfortable bag. I have had an upper park shift and currently have a rebel. Trying to find a backpack style bag that works for me. I’m a pretty large fellow, 6’3” and about 250 pounds, shaped like a slightly doughy hulk hogan.

Shift was too short. I liked the layout, but the waist strap was just always in the way, and if I tried to use it, it was above my hips right under my ribs.

Rebel is just too big compartment wise. The straps fit well, and I like the lack of waist belt, but I only carry around 10-12 discs thee days and the bag part is just too much for that, and a little heavy.

Anyone have a recommendation for a 10-14 disc bag, for a tall man, with good functionality?

Hmmm, tough one. I wish I had an answer....it seems like backpacks are all having waist bands. It really would be nice to have a disc golf store or somewhere that you could see/handle/try all types of bags - like you can go to a shoe store and try on different shoes. But, we don't have enough disc golf stores and it would be expensive to have samples of all types of bags....heck, disc golf stores don't even carry all types of discs.

My best suggestion is to list what all you need your bag to carry, then use that to narrow down bags, and then ask people what they think of those bags...plus try to find disc golfers in your area who have the type of bags you are interested in.

Probably give a Pound Carlton a look. I went from a Shift to a Carlton and have been extremely happy with it.

I'm far from tall, so I can't comment on that issue you're having.

The Option here when Production comes back is to get the Discraft Tournament Backpack then put the DGA Gel Shock straps on the bag. I feel that in terms of actual backpacks, the smaller end/beginner backpacks will all be too small. The Discraft Tournament is the most Durable of the single strap backpacks.

I have no backpack centric advice, but I will drop some love for my 9yr old double nutsac. No tears and she's been through da wars bye!

It gets a little full after about 10 discs. I typically pack 4 putters and 5-drivers. I can play bag on, cross shoulder with 7 or less very comfortably, which is nice when it's wet! You can even drive if you beaner it to a belt loop as well.

Latitude 64 has a backpack that I forget the name for but the backpack that the discs fit into slots, though it can carry a few more then 14 discs, it is tall. Not as much non space as one would think, is the flaw.

Yes!

Grip C3 series

Nice thin tall bag that fits. I'm 6'2" and have also had problems with other bags being to squat and or wide making them uncomfortable for me. The Grip fixed the problem for me.
