I mostly play in the morning and I have to start off with a jacket. If I could come up with a system to attach a rolled up jacket to my Quads, it would free up my Chimp's big pocket for 3 more backup and practice discs, which I'm in need of now that it's tourney time. If I could protect said jacket from getting dirty when I drop the quads on the ground, that would be even better.
Some kind of velcro loops or cinching straps attached to each rear quad strap would be a start...I don't have sewing skills though.
You framed the answer in your question. Don't attach your jacket to the quads, rather carry them ON your quads. Your quads attach to your bags with caribeeners. So when you remove your jacket during the round, zip the jacket up, unclip the two caribeeners on top of the bag, slide the jacket over the quad shocks (through the bottom opening and up through the arm slots) then reclip the quads to your bag. It takes less than a minute to do. It is sort of like dressing a store maniquin.
I figured this out a couple years ago and it works well. You need to slide the jacket up and down to carry the bag or to get discs in and out but this is easily done. Since I normally carry a camping stool to sit my bag on anyway, it keeps both my bag and jacket out of the dirt. Even if you don't use a stool, the jacket is secured to the top of the bag and this keeps it out of the dirt as much as your quads are.
