Disc Review



Gorilla Boy
Spider Monkey Bag

Review: I first heard about Gorilla Boy bags here on DGR and it soon became clear that these were the bags for me. Since I can't find a reason to carry more than a dozen discs, the Spider Monkey was the one I chose.

It can hold ~10-12 discs in the main compartment, two putters in the putter pocket (tight fit and ,if need be, you can use the back pocket for another disc. So this little bag holds upto ~15 discs.

The main compartment has a PVC frame that acts as both a "disc keeper" and a stabilizer so your bag doesn't flop over when you set it down. This is really nice touch not seen in many small bags these days.

The bag has a mesh pocket on one end, large enough for a folded up poncho. On the other end is a zipper pocket thats great for holding your cell phone, keys or some about the size about 4 inches by 8 inches in size. There is a putter pocket on the front side and is big enough to hold two of most putters. Atteched to the front of the putter pocket is a mini pocket with the Gorilla Boy logo on it.

There are hook-ups on the bag for should straps and a clasp for an umbrella or towel or even to hang a second watter bottle.

The tip lid of the bag is half zippered and have velcro. The top zips up to seal the main compartment and flap extends from where the zipper end down to cover the putter and mini pockets. The flap is great for wet weather play as it keep water off your discs and putters.

The Spider Monkey seems be a bit lighter than even the Revo mini bag, so it saves on your shoulder. The bag also looks great, in my opinion the nicest looking bag there is. It comes in several colors though I had mine mad in camo.

All Gorilla Boy bags are handmade and darn near bullet proof: Sturdy. The seams are all double stitched for extra strength and all the clasps and hardware are plenty strong.

A golf bag may not directly improve your game, but the Spider Monkey has made it easier for me to carry my discs in comfort. By carrying a lighter more well constructed bag, I feel like I have improved my game.
