While we're talking about the best disc golf bags, let me mention a few things about the REVOLUTION line of disc golf bags. Since we produced our first commercially available bags in 1998, REVOLUTION has set the standard for design, materials and quality of construction. I truly believe that, not only do we produce the world's best disc golf bags, we also produce one of the world's best outdoor bags – regardless of its application.
How have we been able to do this conistently for the last eight years?
1. We never skimp on materials. Whether you get our $40 MINI Bag or the $115 Carolina TEAM Bag, all REVOLUTION bags are made from 100% Dupont-brand Cordura. We don't use something that looks like Cordura. Its the real deal. Cordura-brand fabrics offer the best water resistant coating, the best wear against abrasion, and the best long-term resistance to color fading.
From the CLUB Bag on up to the Carolina TEAM Bag, we now integrate an ultra-tough truck vinyl material on the bottoms of our full-sized bags. Not only is this material super resistant to wear and abrasion, it is easy to clean and looks as good as the day you bought it after years of heavy and consistent use. No oher disc golf bag that I've seen is using this material.
Second, our designs are thought through with the tournament player in mind. We don't copy other dg products to capitalize on what's popular. We design for ease of use, longevity, and functionality. We pioneered features like the padded back, bonus quad shock loops, and oversized rain flap and umbrella straps. We've taken features like the internal frame to the next level of usefulness and believe so strongly in its importance that we include a frame in every bag we sell.
Next, our bags are produced in small quantities in the United States. Our manufacturer is under no pressure to deliver incredible quantities of product. They take their time and get every aspect of the construction 100% right. Compare the stitching on a REVOLUTION Bag versus any other disc golf bag out there. You'll see that every seam is double stitched and every double stitch is dead straight. Then, every exposed seam on the bag is taped to further increase durability and water resistance. And I'm not just talking about the most visible seams in the main compartment. Every seam inside the side pockets is taped as well.
Nothing cheap ever finds its way into any REVOLUTION Bag. And yes, we certainly pay for this quality. Our bags cost as much as five times the wholesale cost of mass producing bags overseas. But the quality of each and every REVOLUTION Disc Golf bag is unmatched and the value in every bag cannot be denied.
That's why its so frustrating for me when I hear someone like Blake say that a REVOLUTION product is overpriced. Although it is his opinion, I truly believe it is wrong.
Perhaps the Carolina Bag is over-engineered for the amount of golf Blake, who has repeatedly said he doesn't play much due to injury and time constraints, can play. However, that doesn't mean that a player like USDGC winner Dave Feldberg, PDGA World Champion Nate Doss, or any up-and-coming advanced player who's hitting tournaments every weekend can appreciate and benefit from.
Not only do we make the best bags available, we put them in the hands of the world's best players (including both Dave and Nate and about 20 others around the world). Of course, we want the best players to be seen with our gear and get their feedback on issues that they find, but our support also makes it easier for them to play disc golf at the highest levels.
We also support dozens of tournaments each year with free or discounted merchandise. Again, we want to spread the word about the REVOLUTION line of bags, but it also helps out the TD's who are on the front lines of growing disc golf in their areas.
All in all, I deeply believe that few people can go wrong with a bag from REVOLUTION Disc Golf. With prices that start at $40, for most players, cost is not really a valid reason for not trying one. And once you do, I think you'll be amazed by the quality you'll find.
