Looking for a small backpack to hold 6-10 discs

Postby Jank » Fri Aug 31, 2012 8:57 am

I'm looking for small backpack (something like a camel back) or looking to modify one that will hold 6-10 discs. I was hoping there was something out there that looks better than a rectangular block bag with shoulder straps on it.

THe Squib looks cool but no view of the insie and no mention of how many discs it can carry.

Maybe it is in the eyes of Quasimodo because it goes well with his hump making him a camel instead of a dromedary. :-)
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Given how few discs you are looking to carry you don't need a bag designed for disc golf. Any bag which fits well will do. At resale shops you can pick up backpacks for $5 or less. Given how tough we are on bags and how often we drop them on the dirt, mud, snow, etc. does it matter if it starts out as new?

On the other hand the more discs you carry the more shots you will take in practice. So if you practice then purposely get a bigger bag and fill it up. Since going to a cart I have carried more discs and consequently got more incidental practice shots in.

The camelbacks I have seen seem poorly suited for disc carrying. The water bladders are positioned such as to take up too much room and leave little space for other stuff. Besides, the water bladders and tubes are too difficult to clean. A plastic water bottle is easy to carry and clean and replace with a new one as needed.
