Looking for some input on the newer GDS tour bag. Wondering how it compares in storage to revo and kong. I know these are all good bags. Just wondering if the GDS bag has served anyone especially well compared to the others. Thinking about getting one next year. Would love to see a close up pic of one other than the one that's on Gateway's site.

One other to consider is Latitude 64 bag. I have both the Revo and Kong bag. The Lat 64 is the bag I like the most. Quality is on par with the Revo bag. It has twice the storgae of the Revo. The negatives about the Lat 64 bag. Is it has no rain flap and only one drink holder,but I don't play in the rain and I use an outside pouch for my second drink. As for Gateway. My friend loves his, but it is already starting to fray in some area's. I must say though. This guy is brutal with his gear. I think his bags flies more than his discs some times! lol!!!
Out of the three you are looking at. The Revo bag is a great bag. The only neg for me. Is that the opening for the disc compartment is to small. I always had to bend my discs to get them out from the sides. Plus it was about two discs to small for me. Other than that I'd give it four stars out of five. The Kong bag gets two and a half to three stars. The quality is just not up to my liking. The zippers are to small of a gauge for the bag, and the internal frame is of a very poor quality (pvc pipes and plastic sides) and the Lat 64 bag gets, four and a half stars. Since I don't play in the rain I don't need a rain flap and I can fit 22+discs in it if I take out there frame system.
Yeah for me the opening on the revo bag looks a little suspect. i prefer the wide open type bag. I definitely like the look of revo bags but the opening and the fact everyone is starting to carry them around here is leaning me in a different direction. I was wondering, are both of the water bottle holders on the same side of the GDS bag? Why can't someone make a bag that has every feature you need?
My friends Gateway tour bag only had one water bottle holder. Unless they have come out with a new one? Not sure how long he's had it, but it hasn't been more than a year. If you need a bag that needs to carry 20+ discs. You should research the Latitude bag. I took their disc rack out and put in one of the "soft racks" that are in the Innova comp. bags. I can fit all the discs I need in it. It has two side pouches and one in front. Plus there is a mini pouch in one of the side pouches. The design is diff. In that the putter pocket is on the side, but I like how I can easily grab my putter while walking. I've had it for approx six months. With no signs of wear at all. The other little thing that bugs me. Is they put all the metal "D" rings on the top. So you really can't adjust the quad shocks for a perfectly flat bag against your back. It's a little thing, but I'm pretty picky. Plus the have to outer pockets. One for a cell phone and the other I use a 2nd water botlle holder. One other thing. Is that it's a little heavier than the Revo and Kong bag.
I have two Revo bags a Phenix bag and since I put a frame in it. It is my 2nd favorite bag next to the Lat 64 bag. The Kong is my least favorite bag out of the bunch.
What it boils down to. Is what negatives you can deal with. For me It's the Lat. 64 bag.
Good hunting!
That's a sweet deal. I would definitely go with the Rev Bag, before the Gateway, or the Gorilla Boy bags. The Latitude 64 Bags are awesome, But right now you can't get them because they are supposedly redoing the bag to make it better, and then they are going to re-release it the date of that is still to be determined. I was looking for a new bag recently and I was researching that. If you have the time to hold out on getting a bag it might be worth it to wait and see what Latitude 64 comes up with. But if you are not going to wait I would go with the Revolution Bag for sure.
Gorilla Boy bags don't have metal D-Rings (the plastic ones on my PDGA bag broke). That's when I bought the GDS tour bag. It fit a lot of stuff (that I didn't need) and got too heavy. I sold my GDS bag for a Revolution bag (also has plastic D-rings) but they're much more "heavy duty"
I recently played a round with the guy I sold the GDS bag to and when I picked it up, noticed it was still much much heavier than the Revolution Carolina bag that I traded UP to.
1st choice: Revolution Carolina
2nd choice: Gorilla Boy
Forget Gateway: They may have started a trend to better bags, but the pioneer has become the follower. Do yourself a favor and do not do business with GDS
Yeah I'm lookin at the GDS Tour. Not a huge fan of the back pack bags though. I've narrowed it down to the "Tour" and a REVO. As far as never doing business with GDS, that isn't gonna happen. Being a former St. Louis guy, I've met Dave a couple of times and he was really nice. One of the first discs I ever bought was a sabre by GDS. And there is no way I would ever give up a wizard. Thanks for the input guys.
