Disc golf bags are big, heavy, and heavy duty.
And if you’re anything like us, you’re pretty into the idea of a disc golf umbrella that can store all your gear, but also holds all your games.
But if you don’t have the cash to spend $1,000 on a full-fledged golf bag (which is probably a good thing for you), we can give you some advice about what you need to consider when choosing your next bag.1.
Durability and waterproofnessThe most important thing for most people when choosing a disc bag is its durability.
But the best discs can last for years, and that’s why disc golf bags can be waterproof.
So if you need a bag that won’t break down or get in the way, a bag made of plastic is probably going to be a better bet.2.
Water resistanceDisc golf bags tend to have a waterproof exterior, which is good because it protects you from the elements and helps protect your gear.
The downside is that plastic is less water resistant than leather, so you’ll want to consider a waterproof outer shell when you’re considering buying a disc.3.
SizeIf you’re looking for something a bit smaller than a regular-sized bag, a disc-sized disc bag could be a great option.
If you’re also looking for an affordable bag that’s small enough to fit in a pocket, consider a small-ish-sized umbrella.4.
Diameter of the discThis will depend on the type of bag you’re going to use.
A disc golf disc can only hold up to 200 feet of play, so a bag with a diameter of about 3.75 inches (8.7 cm) would be perfect for you.
A standard size bag is 3.5 inches (10 cm) across.5.
Design and color of the bagThe size of the exterior and interior of your disc golf backpack is a very important consideration.
A classic design that is a little wider, a smaller diameter, and a heavier interior can all make your disc bag look pretty darn cool.6.
The type of disc usedThe disc you’re planning to use is going to determine the type and size of bag that you’ll need.
A solid, full-grain Disc is a great bag for disc golfers who need a sturdy bag that can hold a disc or two, while a light, medium-grain disc is ideal for players who like to keep things light and play at their own pace.7.
The size of your handsWhen you’re thinking about choosing a bag, you need something that fits your hands, and this is where size plays a role.
You need a disc that is going at least 3.25 inches (9.7cm) wide, and at least 1.25″ (3.1cm) thick.
A medium-sized Disc will have a diameter about 1.8 inches (4.4cm) and a thickness of about 0.75″ (2.2cm).
A medium-size umbrella would be ideal for a player who’s used a discbag a few times, but not much, and wants something that’s smaller than your regular-size bag.8.
Drip tipsThe bag you want is going the distance.
That’s why we love the idea that the bag has a little drip tip at the end that makes your game easier when you need it most.9.
The weight of the discsThe disc is going through the air.
This is especially important for players with disc golf experience, as discs often get thrown from trees and other objects that could damage them.
A lightweight, full sized umbrella can be used for players in the middle of a tournament and still be able to hold all your discs.10.
How big is your bag?
We’ve seen a lot of bags in the last couple of years that are just too big for most of the players in their group.
The disc golf landscape has changed a lot over the last decade, and we’ve seen discs go from full-sized bags to full-length ones.
A large umbrella is definitely going to help with those players who can’t handle a full sized bag, and it also helps with players who are more comfortable in their smaller size.11.
Which disc bag will give you the most bang for your buck?
You may be surprised by what you get for your money, but the bigger your bag the more bang you’ll get.
A full-size disc bag can go for anywhere from $1 to $2,000, depending on the weight of your bag and the number of discs you’ll use.
You’ll also want to be sure to consider the durability of the material used, as the thicker plastic can be more durable.
