Even if there are no putter pockets, you could probably fit putters in either of those side pockets. They look ginormous.
I threw Wizards before they were cool.

For our anniversary (6 years), my wife just asked me if she could get me "that bag you have wanted". I looked on the Gboy site and saw the wait time and I hesitated. I checked other bags of note on various sites and decided that these are going to be worth the wait. My great wife will be pulling the trigger on a kelly green Chimp when she gets home from work today. I just like the business model and all the positive reviews too much to sway at this point...I'll wait it out!

In regards to washing GB bags:

I had my Spider Monkey sitting on the floor of the basement next to my practice basket, and our basement flooded overnight :-x
Luckily it was only an inch or two of rain water, but I felt like I should rinse it out just to be safe. I realize bags get dirty/wet sometimes, but I didn't want it to mildew or smell nasty. I just took the frame out, and gave it a good rinse in the sink. Should it be good to go? Should I be concerned about the insulation in the drink holder being waterlogged?

I would think it would be fine. The air is still really dry and any moisture in that bag is gonna get sucked out. Bummer about the flooding, water can be such a b**ch.

Yeah, I think it's good to go. i was mainly concerned about the padding in the drink holder staying damp, but it squeezed it and It seems dry already. Well, since I have the frame out already, now I can cut a divider to add to it :)

Nice. How many discs do squeeze into the squirrel monkey? I have a chimp right now that holds 14-16 and I was thinking about getting a smaller bag this summer.

I'm pretty sure the Squirrel is the same as the Spider Monkey in terms of disc capacity - I fit 9 in the main compartment, and one in the putter pocket.

Man, i don't know what i've been thinking this last year that i've had my spider monkey. The whole time i've had a set of quad shocks not in use on my old innova bag. I guess i just thought there was no point on such a small bag but today i thought of it for some reason and tried them on there. Awesome.

I was finding myself in situations where i didnt want to take the sim out because of snowy/muddy wet conditions but the spider wore my left shoulder down over the round, this appears to be a perfect solution. :mrgreen:

I fit ten discs in the main compartment of my spider monkey and they rattle a little plus one in the putter pocket. I could probably squeeze one more in there if I needed to. Awesome bag I can't believe I used to use a backpack.

That is what I've had for about a year now and it has served me well. What color did you get?
