Anybody out there own a GB silverback? Wondering about storage and how it hooks up for quads. Lookin to slightly downsize my bag disc wise but up the storage space. Any input would help, photos if possible. Thanks.

Can't speak first hand about the Silverback, but I did check them out and opted for the Kong bag. It had more storage than the Silverback. Since then I purchased a Latitude 64 pro bag. This bag has WAY more storage than both of the Gorilla Boys bags. The side compartment are huge with a sub pocket in one of the side pockets. It's a place to store your keys and wallet. There is also and even bigger front pocket. I was able to stuff a sweat shirt in this pocket without a problem. There are also two small outer pockets as well. One for a cell phone and the other I ended up using as a second bottle holder. Since they only have one bottle holder. The bag has a "rack" that velcro's to the inside of the bag. With that in place you can fit 10 to 12 dics. With it removed. You can fit up to 22 discs. Finally, you can put the quad shocks on the bag and they hace metal "D" rings to secure it to.
I know it's off the subject for the bag you are looking at, but having owned both bags, as well as a Revo. Carolina bag. At this point I would rate the Latitude 64 bag the best out of them, but I've only used it several times. So I couldn't speak for it's durability as of yet.
I have a gorilla boy kong and absolutely love it. My only regret is that I didn't get a silverback. The kong is great for tournaments but a little large for day to day use. Gorilla boy bags are engineered very well, super lite and carry well with quad shocks.
Thanks for the input. I currently own a innova comp bag and have no problems with it other than storage. It holds plenty of discs but now it seems i'm lacking places to put stuff after you carry cellphone, jacket, camera, minis,etc. Seriously looking at a GB because i prefer the wide open top to the revo smaller opening. thanks again.
i have the silverback and love it. i have 22 discs in mine. room for phone, bugspray, sunflower seeds, smokes, snacks, towels, etc. in the two side pockets. there is a pocket where your back rests as well. i have discs in my front pocket, but it is big enough for a jacket folded up. the frame does not sacrifice disc space. the rain flap is awesome. the umbrella straps are on the front of the bag under the putter pocket. i downsized from the innova discarrier. the silverback is so light, even fully loaded. i would recommend it to anyone.

The pocket on the left holds my rain gear - pants and jacket... for reference.
Ya, that's my biggest problem with the Revo bag as well. Having owned all of these bags, plus the Phenix bag. The Latitude bag tops them all. Stronger zippers, thicker gauge of material, and a much more refined bag. Than the Gorilla Boys bags. However it does not come with a rain cover, but since I don't play in the rain it's not s big deal for me.
Is that a picture of the Silverback? The pocket size reference is exactly the info I was looking for. I'm really leaning towards getting one of these bags.
That pic is a Silverback...
