Is there any wait for a spider monkey? I'm looking for a nice small bag for putters and midrange bags and I think this is what I want.

Those side pockets are very large as well. The only problem I have with it is that I can't find my run number. :lol: Thanks for a great bag Chris!

Nevermind. It was under the flap. Sweet 16! :mrgreen:

The original straps that were included has served me well until now, where they are becoming a bit uncomfortable in the heat where I dont wear so many layers of clothers.

Therefore I'm considering my options for replacing the straps. I've tried replacing the straps with my (very old) phenix quadstraps, which didn't really work. Should I get new quad straps and try again? Are any people using this or do you guys stick to the included straps?

Furthermore I understand that the straps have now been replaced with some of higher quality on the second version of the bag. Will these be compatible with the old bags and would it be possible to order these seperately? If so do you have an estimate of the price (including shipping to europe).


the sim has changed now and is made with the straps sewn in permanently so there is no option now for using quads.


had my recent run sim for over a year (averaging probably 36 holes/day) now and i couldnt be happier with it. i was worried about the limited options with the attached straps, but theyre really cushy and break in to conform to the curvature of the shoulders nicely. outside of the color getting sun-bleached (mine is "wine and grey") on the top/seat area, it hasnt shown an iota of wear. i considered putting feet on the bottom of it to raise it off the ground or do a plastic dip...glad i didnt. completely unnecessary. the courses i play are largely rocky/sandy and eat up most bags. the material on the bottom isnt going anywhere

two places where minor tweaks could be used: the bottle holders are too loose for the amount of stuffing you put in them. this has resulted in all of the padding building into a chunk so im left with an insulated ball thats not doing a thing for 70% of the bottle.

second is i feel the area under the disc storage area is underutilized. i stuff my shirt in there sometimes or pop a can of beer when my side pockets are full (very rare...i love the real estate available in the side pockets), but the area is tough to access, even when storing only 11 discs in the main area.

minor stuff. the sim is the best bag on the market, hands down.


if you've had your bag for over a year then it is the old style, I did not start making the new style until feb of this year. the area under the main compartment now has a zipper to access the bottom for storage. the straps did not become permanent until the style change happend and the side pockets are even bigger now.

Right now i have a Dual Pack, traded a grip for it cuz the grip didnt have the necessary storage for my over abundance of putters but the side pockets were plenty big for pretty much anything that wasnt a disc. Right now, the Dual Pack has the perfect amount of storage with that top pocket, can hold my 3-5 putters, shirt, towels etc. I would gladly rock a Sim if it had the necessary storage. Love my Kong, I think im spoiled :)


yes theres room for all of that stuff in the sim

I've not seen the new sim, but the "removable" straps on the sim that I had would have needed to been cut to remove them. The new sim looks a lot different though, the pockets on the side go all the way up.

that cant be cause i never made them that way on that version of the sim.. they should be held on with velcro under the straps that the shoulder straps go through. you should be able to undo the velcro to slide the straps out.

So, there's really no wait for Spider Monkeys at this point? I'm looking to add to my GB collection.

Also, does anyone have any comparison pictures of a Silverback next to a Chimp?
