GDS Tour Bag

Posted: 6-05-03
Submitted by eschroer@wctc.net
I purchased my tour bag in 1998 ( if memory serves correctly). Today is June 3, 2003 and it has only a 1/4" thread loose on the mini marker pocket. I like the older style compared to the newer ones in one way. In a heavy downpour the main cover covers the putter and velcro's on the front of the putter pocket.

My Review:
The GDS Tour Bag is a large capacity bag with most of the features disc golfers are looking for. The bag has a heavily padded shoulder strap, 2 external disc pockets, 2 large zippered pockets, and one external pocket with a velcro closure. It is made out of fairly heavy material and has 2 drink holders, one regular and the other insulated. Inside, the bag houses a PVC/plastic frame that stabilizes the discs to reduce warping and 2 movable plastic dividers. With both dividers in place the bag has an internal capacity of around 16-17 discs assuming you will be carrying a mix of drivers and midranges. It is possible to swap out a divider for an extra disc, giving it a maximum capacity of around 19-20 discs with both dividers removed. Each internal pocket can hold 3-4 discs depending upon their dome height and with the 2 external pockets, the realistic carrying capacity is approximately 24 discs with both dividers installed. The material appears very durable but only time will tell on that, I will add to this review with my findings in the future. A solid bag with a very large capacity, it carries a hefty pricetag of around $75-80. At that cost I would hope there would be a pocket to hold a mini-marker, a metal D-ring for towels, and maybe an umbrella holder but I would probably call this the "Cadillac of Bags" although I have yet to see Disc Revolution's bags in person so I will hold off before I engrave that statement in stone.
