The accessability of the equipment stored in this bag is so well tought out. And its so comfy on the back compared to other bags, you have to try one to know what i mean! Ill stick with this bag!!
This bag has so many great features I didn't know I needed. The waist straps have storage compartments for snacks, the shoulder straps are very adjustable, and the back mesh feels nice. Once broken in, the main storage compartment has plenty of space for four towels, a grip stick (for discs in the water or trees), other tools and even two extra discs. The mini pocket is great too; and as many times as I've knocked over the bag, my whale sac and mini have never fallen out of it. Probably my favorite feature is the water bottle placement so I never feel the weight of it. I also like the option of adding pins and patches onto the bag.
I usually store no more than 16 or 17 discs in it, which is perfectly fine since I used to carry 24 discs per round and never throw half of them. I love how easy it is to move putters in it compared to my old bag that had just one zippered pocket for three. Placing discs on the sides of the bag also makes it easy to separate mids, fairway, and drivers; as opposed to just placing everything in a line.
The only difficulties I had with the bag were inserting the base when it was brand new, and learning how to attach the rain cover. I knew how to insert the base pad, it was just a very tight fit and I could barely see what I was doing. Once I got the pad in as perfect as possible after about 20 minutes or so, it's been fine and I haven't had a single problem with it. Unlike the pad, though, the rain cover came with no instructions on how to attach it, and every video and post online I could find just showed how to attach it on other types of bags. I did eventually figure out the rain cover, and even got to use it a couple times already in the rain, and it's superb.
I've had the bag about a couple weeks now, and it's definitely the best disc golf bag I've ever owned. The quality is outstanding and I can see this bag holding up for many years of play!
Love it! Five stars wouldn’t change a thing!
I had high expectations prior to receiving The Shift and all were met or exceeded! Discs slide in and out with ease, it’s aesthetically pleasing when packed, weight is acceptable, and my oversized water bottle fits perfectly and is easily accessible.
My only criticism of the bag is that it’d be nice to be able to remove the torso straps, similar to how the chest straps can be taken off. You can bandaid this by tucking them into the zipper pouch pockets and I carry the bag mostly over one shoulder while on the course, so said pouches don’t bug me.
I know this is a bold statement, but it's true. This bag is next level. If you were to make a list of all the best features on a bag, the Rebel checks every box. The Onyx release is absolutely stunning and the craftsmanship is top notch. The bag has space for everything you need out on the course. Comfortable, durable, stylish, functional...what more can you ask for?!
