no.

That looks like a cheesy 1960s airplane carry-on bag with 90s poly mesh tacked on (in my humble opinion)

Does have a drink holder. So that's pretty hip and modern. Fishing bag and tool bag manufactures still haven't figured that out.

Also, no mention of what the "leather" is sourced from. Cow likely. I would not be shocked if it's some sort of poly labeled as "leather". Real words don't mean much anymore. This is likely someone pretty much ordering nearly off-the-shelf from some transnational middleman thats calls another to get stuff done at the mystery factory somewhere in the Far East. The photos of this disc golf product may literally be as much as the person selling this knows about this bag other than the cost shipped.

If I asked the seller one question, it would be " can this bag take hot iron branding?"

A version of this bag is rotting in every 12th persons grandparents basement and may have a cool Pan Am logo on it

It almost looks like a leather version of a Crunch Bag.


Something tells me that it won't hold up as long tho.

I've always preached that you should never knock a product, especially without ever having used it. But just on the surface, we see that it's a starter bag, not quite as big as a Fade Crunch Box. And it's $109. Just taking those two things into consideration, I think this will be a very tough sell, in a fairly saturated market, no matter how nice or durable it is.

I would question the lining, looks pretty flimsy for the rigors of my use on a course in all kinds of weather. The bottle holder is too small and that strap.......

It almost looks like they cut the outer covering of an innova standard bag and recovered it with cheap leather. It has the same mesh pocket on the lid. Same zipper pocket on the back. Basically the same strap. They just changed the hardware and zippers....

Wow..tough crowd here. It is indeed meant to be a basic bag made from cowhide leather. Not some cheap "faux" leather or "bonded" leather. The basic bag from most companies are pretty similar in design....you need a main compartment for the discs, a putter pocket, a bottle holder, and a storage compartment or 2.....I don't know how to make it much different. As for the price.....it is currently priced toward the lower end of the scale for leather handbags,purses, bowling ball bags, etc of a similar size.....though I could come down a bit and still make a small profit.

I agree that the price is right for a quality leather product. But I have to ask about durability.

Yea. At 3 or 4x+ the normal price of a starter bag, it had better be very durable.

I think you should have gone a little more fashionable with the design to attract the female disc'r. I wouldn't think the younger male crowd would be interested in leather, with all the hi tech fabrics and the colors available with them. And we all know how women love a nice looking hand bag...

There are leather ball golf bags, bowling ball bags, etc available and on the market, and they are generally more expensive than bags of other fabric types. Genuine leather is expensive. I can tell you it is not cheap, "bonded" leather or imitation leather. It is designed to be rugged and water resistant. More designs are possible in the future...but a basic bag seemed the most logical place to start. I have decided to offer an introductory sale price of $89. Free Shipping.
