Thumber, you should get the simian so that you two can argue about who's got the best bag in Ottawa.

So i guess that is the question. I want a backpack golf bag. The three contenders are the Revo bag (which is already out for lack of beverage pockets, the Simian or the Golf Mahal

Golf Mahal looked bomb-proof, holds an umbrella open, great harness sytem, good rain system

Simian has the built in stool system and good construction

Thoughts?

The guys at Gorilla golf wanted to charge me $90 in shipping, and they wouldn't make deals with more than one bag (remember when I was looking in the smaller bag, and Thumber was interested too).

After thinking about it for awhile I thought the idea of a bag/seat wasn't so sweet (probably just PVC piping), and probably had a weight issue.

I didn't fully fall in love with the backpack idea with DG, and I prefer the "open top" feature on DG bags.

Gorilla Boy offers a one year warranty, Mahal comes with a LIFETIME warranty. Gorilla says they
Quote:
We have been making Gorilla Boy Disc Golf Bags in Central Wisconsin with quality materials and a focus on craftsmanship since 2001.

Each bag is handcrafted at Gorilla Boy Disc Sports to assure that our standards for quality are met on each and all of our products.


...so I'm to assume they are made in the US, whereas I know the Mahal and all Mystery Ranch bags are hand made in BOZEMAN, MONTANA.

GB are a DG bag company. Mystery Ranch is a backpack company, that supply the Marines, and the wildfire fighters. Mystery Ranch, for those in the know, is owned and run by Dana Gleason, the maker of Dana Design packs. I owned a Dana pack for years until it got stolen from my truck. Bomb proof.

This is why I went the Mystery ranch route.

I finally got it set up for the season. It's missing a pencil/Sharpie holder, and a card holder. The original bag had one, and for some reason they scaled that back. I would like one more pocket that has no zipper on the side, for garbage, white-ball balls, notebook, etc.

I had 20 discs in it yesterday, without using a side pocket. The most I've had in it was on Friday, at the driving range, where I had 28 discs in it (and had room for more!). Great bag for Darco. Carry 30, use 3.

Got one of these for the bag. It's a towel holder clip. Holds any towel in the "star" and clips to your bag. Awesome.

The Mahal has finally added a scorecard and pencil pocket. I'm trying to see if they'll send me the pocket.
