Default GRIP EQ alternative - sub $60 - no mod required

Imagine Eco-friendly Backpack

(sorry for the large images)



Pros:
  • A competitive alternative to the top DIY bags.
  • Holds about 20 discs across (with nothing in side pockets).
  • Holds 3+ Putters on the back wall of the front compartment.
  • Holds clothing and other gear in separate compartment.
  • Has insulated compartment which you could use for a Camelbak if you want
  • Dual (identical) side compartments for phone, wallet, etc.
  • Dual water bottle holders. Fits Nalgene.
  • Material is pretty strong, but I have no idea about hold up over time.
  • It’s light.
  • Fit’s great and airs out my back, but I don’t have big shoulders. It may not be as comfy for bigger dudes?
  • Requires no PVC.
  • Requires no cutting.
  • Nice structure. Stands very well on its own.

Cons:
  • No rubber bottom
  • The bottle holders on the side, while very functional, do not expand outwards. So when you put a bottle in there, it cuts down slightly on the number of discs you can fit in the main compartment.

Bag can be purchased here:

Guys, just project it onto the side of a building and they look fine.

Nice bag btw, might just have to pull the trigger.

Looks about the same as my old Ogio bag that I re-purposed for DG. Not ideal but it gives me a place to put glasses, wallet, keys. I'm sure if I were a little craftier I could tweak it more, just like you might need to do here.

Do you find that if there aren't enough discs in the main compartment that they start turning sideways? That happens to mine and I think I just need a pvc frame in the bottom.

If you're wanting a grip bag, i suggest buying a grip bag. Yes, it costs more than $60, but it's worth the price, and not having to continually search for a DIY look-alike that pales in comparison is even better.

But, hey, that looks like a nice laptop bag.

Uhhhhh, yeah just send over the extra $200 and I'll splurge on that EQ bag!

Actually I'd probably still buy this bag and put the $200 into making 200 strippers $1 richer.

Thanks OP, I did pull the trigger. No shipping at overstock, which is nice.
