Looking for a bag

Postby zeramant86 » Mon Jul 07, 2014 6:55 am

Hey guys, I've finally hit the point where I'm outgrowing the starter bag I've been carrying, and I'm starting to look at other larger bags that will hold what I have currently, and any others I might get in the near future. My preference would be a bag that holds 20-30 discs, that holds up extremely well. I don't really want to have to buy a bag every year or two, and I'd rather spend a few extra bucks now, rather than buying a whole new bag later. here's what I've looked at so far.

I really like the looks of this one, but 400D and 600D nylon is a joke, especially considered how this will be used.

http://www.dynamicdiscs.net/Latitude-64 ... p/4208.htm
This is the one I'm currently leaning towards, but I can't seem to find what material they've used on it. I'm really fond of the layout, and if the material is good, this is most likely what I'll end up with. Mainly just wondering if anyone has had any experience with it.

I'm open to other bags also, so if you know of others, I'm open to all suggestions. I just started looking, so I'm really not sure what all is out there.

I have the Lat64° Pro Bag. I do like it. It is very durable (had it ~4 years now I think). It does hold a metric crap-ton of discs and stuff. Having said all that I only use it for tournament time. And even then I tend to regret it on occasions (usually if I'm playing poorly). It is a lot of bag for the money!

The bags I use the most are a CrunchBox and a DGA Elite Shield. The Elite Shield gets the most mileage right now.

If you are willing to spend the money now I would say shoot for the backpack style. Lat64 has a backpack now, and if the pro bag is any indication the back pack will be well worth the investment.

The lat64 back pack style bag is great. You said you wouldn't mind spending more now to spend less in the long run...I would highly suggest this bag.

I do like the backpacks, I just don't know if I can talk myself into one of those. Does the Lat 64 Pro Bag have an internal frame? I'm assuming basically all of the bags this size do, right?

I got a Big Hyzer Ergo2 a few months back and I REALLY like it. Compact, light, enough storage, and 2 drink holders

the Pro Bag (non backpack) does NOT have an internal frame.

So is the lack of a frame a big deal then? I'd imagine it certainly helps, but does it make that much difference?

Likewise. Solid bag.

now that I think about it, I've never owned a bag with a frame, so I can't say if it makes a difference or not.

purely anecdotal (and possibly impertinent) observation but I have seen a lot of Revo bags with cracked/broken frames.

I have a Voodoo Zulu with Phenix Quadshocks.

I feel that Voodoo makes some really solid bags.I've had mine for 2 years and it has been the best bag I have ever owned

Inexpensive Option: Innova Competition bag. Best bang for the buck. Add some backpack straps and you're good to go. This is probably the most popular bag I see out on the course and hold up quite well.

Mid-level Price Option: Lat64 Pro bag. Monster bag with lots of pockets for extra stuff to weigh you down. Good construction, nice looking, just big.

Expensive Option: Backpack bag like a Grip A14, Dynamic Discs Ranger, Big Hyzer Ergo2. These all have good reputations but are a little more pricey.


I think for the money the Innova bags can't be beat. I recently moved up to a Grip and it feels a lot better on the back than my old bag with Quadshocks, and has a little more storage for other stuff.
