I've never owned a Carolina bag, but I love my Lat 64 bag. I had been using a Revo Dual Pack and switched over at the end of this season. The storage capacity on the Pro bag is tremendous, and I love the side putter pocket. Only draw back is the one bottle holder, but the side pockets are large enough to fit more with ease. Good luck picking.
a bag discussion ... where is rescue? i've never had the lat 64 bag for the very reason it doesn't have a rain fly or a 2nd bottle holder. i sold my carolina when i bought my dual pack. i like the dual pack, but i won a grip eq bag at a tourney. so, i'll be selling my dual pack soon. i liked the storage space in the carolina. i also liked the rainfly, 2 bottle holders, and the disc capacity was just right for me. i believe the lat bag does hold more discs in the main compartment. the carolina is made of thick, high quality material and is still lightweight. several guys around here carry them and have carried them for years so i know they hold up. i bought mine used and used it for one season and it never showed any more wear. let me know if you want to buy a dual pack. or anyone else for that matter ...
do you have a picture of the dual pack?
$160 is high, but if you think about it. You save approx $40, because you don't have to buy Quadshox. That is of course, if you don't have any to begin with. As unhappy as I am with the dualpack design. I'm sold on backpack style bags. I was very suprised at how much more comfortable they are compared to the standard bag setup.
I can't stand Revolution bags! I have both of the above bags, but I thought I'd try the daulpack, thinking it would be better on my back (it is). However, I'm really starting to HATE that bag and am thinking of going back to my Lat 64 bag.
First off, Revolutions quality is the best out there, bar none. Out of all the bags I've tried/owned. They use the best material (cordura) and their zippers are huge! The problem, is they are very poorly designed bags imo (daulpack really bad!). The biggest pain is that the main opening (were you put the discs) is too small. If you carry more than 16 discs, it's a pain in the a$$ to get them out. Now if you only carry 12 to 14 discs you should be fine.
The Lat 64 bag is one of the best thought out bags I've owned, but it fits MY needs. However, it might not fit your? It only has one bottle holder and no rain flap, but I don't do rain and one bottle works for me. So, the neg on the Lat bag is the material is not as good as the Revo bag. They use nylon and the zippers could be thicker bigger. Now, if you carry more than 16 discs the Lat 64 bag is the way to go. Or you can wait and see if the Grip bag will work for you. It looks pretty sweet and if there are some left when they get done passing out the pre order ones. I might just try one lol!! Or if you don't like yours Coolhand, you can sell it to me ;)
where did you get your lat bag?
Just ordered my lat64 bag!!!!!!!
Sweet! I think you will dig it. Matter of fact. I just pulled mine back out, because I'm not to happy with the dualpack.
Rescue, Wanna donate the hated dual pack?
If all goes well with the purchase of a Grip bag. I'd be willing to donate it. Now, are you talking, to a good cause? Or are you the good cause lol!!
