Default Backpack bag

Hey dudes, I put on some CCDG on the Chromecast last night and my wife told me I should buy a backpack bag. I'm one to listen to my wife so here I am

Presently I carry a Fossa tourney-style bag, the ones that carry a ton of discs (like north of 30) with quad straps. I appreciate the sheer capacity of this one primarily as if I'm feeling cheeky I could fill the thing up with around 26 discs for a tournament without batting an eye. Not much of a minimalist, you see.

Anyway, looking for recommendations for the best value on a backpack - high capacity for discs is a plus, as is overall build quality (stitching that doesn't fall apart, ergo). These two features combined would typically launch me into the pricey stratosphere, so what options do I have for something cheaper, say closer to $100 than $200?

thanks

The Fossa pro is a nice bag if you I'd just stick with that or grab a DD bag those are my suggestions

GripEQ A series if you play a lot/play tournaments, B serious if you dont or dont carry a lot of discs.

DD Ranger is also nice. These are the two I've personally had and were happy with both. I prefer the Grip A series. AX if you want extra storage. Grip is also running a 10% sale right now.

The AX seems like the obvious choice at this point, thanks.

If I were in your shoes, I'd take a look at the Upper Park Rebel.
At the higher end of your price range, but it's extremely comfortable, extremely easy to load, and you get the Refresh code to upgrade when they bring out new versions.

Buy once, cry once.

Why would you suggest a $245 bag to a guy looking to spend $100? I'm not saying your bag isn't worth the cost. It's like telling someone to get a Destroyer who is looking for a putter

I feel ya man. You have a solid product. It's a really nice setup. You should keep the posts flowing in the RR thread to help people stay aware and informed. Blow it up on IG. Post something there every day to keep it fresh.
