Your rain jacket would have to be one of the packable types that has it's own little stuff sack built into it. You could carry fewer discs and use the divider to section off a place for a jacket. Or you could the umbrella loops to carry a jacket (but probably no umbrella). Otherwise you would need a bag that has side pockets the full height and width of the disc compartment.

I am all about supporting small business.
I am interested in knowing if Gorilla Boy has plans to make a backpack-type bag in the future?

I don't see a reason to be carrying raingear that has much more weight/bulk to it than that anyway, unless you are trying to add weight for long haul disc carry training or something. :roll:

In Oregon I don't go out to the course this time of year without a rainshell in the bag, and it takes up less than half a pocket.

Oregon this time of year is the site of colder, slightly less windy monsoons.

I have a rainshell that folds up and fits nicely in the big side pocket on my large Gorilla Boy bag, the small pocket by the drink holder I have to hold my towel and pocket contents. Back pocket I put my rain pants in. Perfect.

Also, I need to wash this bag horribly... just empty the internal frame and hose it out? Is it washing machine safe?

i've never bothered to ever wash out a bag i used ....but i dont see why it would be safe to put it in the washer ...though to clean the cordura you can just wipe it down with a wet soapy rag and rinse it out.... but like i said i've never cleaned out a bag before

It might be a good idea to try it just from a customer satisfaction/R&D standpoint. Take an old bag, or one that had a defect or something, and see how many trips through the washer/dryer it takes to destroy it. Or see how the different combinations of hot/cold/detergent/bleach affect it.

That way you'll be prepared for the day some irate customer calls and complains that washing their bag ruined it, and somehow it's your fault. ;)

Don't put cordura in the dryer. Just don't. It'll air dry fast enough.

Yeah, considering that just about all heavy duty outdoor gear is is made from cordura, I'd imagine it'd be fine, but I agree with NoLifeLeft...the dryer might not be a good idea.

I just got back from playing 2 rounds in a steady sprinkle and my bag looks almost new compared to how it did when I left the house. I would just spray it with a hose and maybe hit the really dirty areas with a nylon brush. No real need for detergent and a washer.
