Best Disc Golf Backpacks For Less Than $25

When it comes to the world of disc golf bags, especially backpacks, you will find a large selection of bag options with a wide range of price points, everything from $10 up to $400+.


While there is nothing wrong with any high end disc golf bag, for many players, spending this kind of money for a leisurely hobby or a sport they just started playing recently is not an option.


On the flip side, players who do commit themselves to a high end bag, may be just looking for a small, budget friendly bag that they can grab quickly on the go, for a round when only a few discs are needed, for a practice round/session, or when they're playing with a friend who needs a simple bag that will get them on the course.


Regardless of your reasoning for needing an inexpensive backpack, you'll be pleased to learn that there are several quality options available to you that will not hurt the wallet too much, in fact all the bags in this article currently retail for LESS THAN $25!


That's about the same price as a single premium disc, which isn't too shabby!


Sure, there are other budget priced disc golf backpacks on the market that exceed the $25 price point yet are still very much affordable, and there are even some non-backpack starter options that are significantly cheaper than the ones found here, but in this article we're going to keep things simple and focus on the

Before we dive head first into our article, it's important to talk about the simple strengths and shortcomings of economy priced backpacks to help you decide if you'd prefer a bag at a higher price point instead of a budget option.


If you know that you want a cheaper bag and don't care to gloss over the fine print, simply



to get right into our list of bags immediately!


Quality

First and foremost, is expected quality.


Higher priced backpacks demand a much higher quality, otherwise they would not warrant the high price tag, but this doesn't mean that lower priced bags will not last for years with proper care.


That being said, bags in the lower price ranges should all function as expected, but zippers, stitching, and seams will likely not be on the same level of quality as a bag that is more expensive. It will work, it just may wear out a little quicker and not be as smooth. You will also probably not see any type of warranty on a cheaper bag where more expensive bags and brands do back their product.


Features and Function

The features a bag has and how it functions is often of big importance to a player searching for a new bag.


Most budget backpacks will still have plenty of storage for discs, as well as room for simple items like a water bottle and your phone/wallet.


But larger, more expensive backpacks often feature better and larger storage options for both personal gear, larger gear such as umbrellas, and room for more discs.


Things like putter pouches are often expected of more expensive bags, where I'd consider them a luxury for a budget bag.


Premium bags will often also perform better in terms of standing upright on their own. Most backpack style bags should stand up, but lesser bags may lack the internal structure and base to help it stand up on its own for anything but flat terrain.


Having a bag stand upright might seem like a mere convenience, but it does make the playing experience more enjoyable when you don't have to worry about your bag constantly tipping over.


Keep in mind that budget bags are often simple, and allow you to just carry the essentials for playing a round of disc golf, so the compromise of being cheaper means it may not work flawlessly or have everything you're looking for.


It's also worth noting that advertised disc carrying capacity is going to vary depending on what types of discs you usually carry.


Putters and mid-ranges will take up more room than drivers simply due to their taller profile. So a bag that is rated for 15 discs, may only fit 13 putters but 16-17 drivers, which is worth keeping in mind so you're not disappointed when a bag doesn't carry as many discs as you thought it would when purchasing.


I once bought a bag that was rated for 12 discs, and I was actually able to fit 14-15 in it comfortably, so you never know entirely until you fill it up with your preferred discs.


Even if you don't need to carry this many discs, less discs means more storage for other things such as an extra water or even snacks and your lunch. I even use extra storage for discs that I want to test or ones I find from time to time while playing.


For this reason, I often suggest getting a bag that holds several more discs than you think you need. If nothing else, you can grow your game into your bag and add discs as your skill level improves.


Comfort

Our third and final talking point is comfort.


More expensive bags will often just carry better, even with more weight.


I've used a variety of backpacks for various activities over the years, and I can tell you that well made bags carry much more comfortably, regardless of weight, than lesser quality bags.


Their weight distribution is more strategic, and there is often the right amount of padding in the shoulder straps and lumbar area that simply makes it more comfortable for any length of time.


To keep costs low, you may not find as much padding in budget bags but luckily, you're often carrying less weight so this is not always a problem anyways.


Now that you know what to expect for a budget bag, let's finally take a look at the

In no particular order,


Let's get started!


MSRP $24.95

Up first is the MVP Shuttle Bag!


Rated for up to 24 discs, this backpack has an impressive amount of storage despite it's small stature.


Expected range will be between 18-24 discs, which is accomplished in part to a dedicated putter pouch slot that is able to accommodate several discs if desired.


On the outside, you fill find a dedicated spot to carry your favorite water bottle up to 32oz in size and opposite it you will find a small storage pocket for your round essentials. While smaller than the storage pockets than other bags on our list, this is still plenty of room for the essentials that you would normally carry in your pant pockets.


Durability has been an issue for some, but this seems to be a con that is in the minority and experience of most who have used this bag, so buy with confidence!

Next is the Cadet Backpack by Dynamic Discs!


This mid-size bag features an advertised capacity for 17 discs spread across it's main and accessory zippered and mesh pockets.


A zippered pocket on the top and on the front of the bag would work great for storage of snacks, keys, a wallet, your phone, and more, but could also be used as a putter pocket if desired.


Add in a mesh pocket on both sides of the bag for water bottles, an umbrella or a tri-fold seat, as well as plastic rings for adding towels or bag tags, and you have a very feature rich bag at a budget friendly cost.


Some complaints are that the bag does not stand up well on it's own due to minimal internal structure, but it will definitely get the job done and more!

If you like everything about the MVP Shuttle bag except for the color, then you'll be pleased to learn that you do have options!


While maintaining the same MSRP, disc capacity, and additional storage options, the Axiom Shuttle Bag is able to do precisely everything the MVP Shuttle Bag can, but with a rainbow of color options that the MVP version lacks.


Axiom and MVP are sister companies, so you can trust that the quality will be in the same ballpark as well, which is assuring to know!


As a quick refresher, the Axiom Shuttle Backpack will allow you to carry 18-24 discs, the majority being in the main pocket, and the rest being in the putter pouch sitting on top.


You'll also have a place for a water bottle of your choosing an extra pocket for small items such as your keys, wallet, and phone.


Just like the MVP Shuttle Bag, the Axiom version is a solid bag that you should definitely consider in your search for the perfect entry level disc golf backpack.

Next on our list is the rather unique Infinite Discs Slinger Bag!


While not your traditional backpack featuring two shoulder straps, we decided to include this sling style backpack on our list due to it's high praise from players who use it and low price point.


Getting right into it, the biggest con of the Slinger Bag is its lack of capacity compared to other bags on this list.


While respectable for its size, this bag will hold approximately 12 discs total. 10 being in the main pocket, and 2 in the easy to access external putter pouch.


As an added bonus, inside the main compartment you'll also find convenient pockets for easy access to your most often throw discs.


While 12 discs is not as many as full size backpacks, it does make for the perfect bag for players looking for a comfortable option during casual rounds.


If size is of concern, upgrading to the Slinger Deluxe will only cost you about $8 more and will allow you to carry 2-3 more discs.


The Slinger bag also features a dedicated water bottle holder, as well as zip up pockets for small items like your phone, wallet, or a mini, and metal ring to attach bag tags or a towel.


The single, sling style strap makes taking this bag on and off a breeze, but unlike backpacks, the bag will not stand up when throwing your shot, which may not be a big deal to some players but is worth noting for others.


That being said, the ease of wearing and removing, plus the lightweight feel of this bag will appeal to many players who have no need for more than 10-12 discs while playing.


All in all, if you're looking for a simple, and cost effective way to carry your discs, then be sure to consider the Slinger Bag!

Weighing in at less than 2lbs empty, the Remix Deluxe Disc Golf Backpack is a great back pack option that you may have never heard of before today!

In additional to plenty of storage space, the Remix backpack is also capable of holding up to 20 of your favorite discs, spread across a main pocket on the bottom and a putter pouch on top.


Despite being a new comer to the industry, players have given this bag some great reviews, and at an equally great price, it is a bag definitely worth looking in to. So give it a shot!

Number #6 on our list brings us to our next bag, the Guru Berserk!


This backpack style bag is very competitive to the other bags on our list in nearly every category as it offers excellent storage, a dedicated water bottle holder, small and lightweight size, all with a disc capacity of up to 20 discs!


Like other options, the Berserk features a main disc storage area in addition to a putter pouch for easy access to any frequently used disc.


Small item storage is taken care of on the side of the bag via a zippered pocket that will keep all your valuables secure. It also features a plastic D ring for attaching a small towel to keep your discs and hands as dry as possible.


Unique to this bag is a front facing section of Velcro that can be used to customize your bag with various patches from your favorite brands.


All in all, the Guru Berserk is a great option to consider and will check many boxes for most players!

The next bag on our list that also comes in the $24.99 MSRP price tag is the Himal Disc Golf bag.


Available in 3 different colors, this backpack style bag may be from a brand that is less common, but it is chalk full of features that make it a serious contender in our eyes!


Featuring a disc capacity of 18-20 discs, 12-16 of which being in the main pocket and up to 4 in the zippered putter pouch, this backpack option is definitely on par with others in its price point category.


In addition to the dedicated water bottle holder and side zipper pocket for small valuables, the Himal Disc Golf bag also has a dedicated spot for 2 writing utensils and a mini or scorecard on the side of the bag for quick and easy access while out on the course.


Throw in 2 plastic D rings at the top for clipping on a towel or bag tags and you have yourself an excellent, feature rich bag to use while playing!

Moving on, we take a look next at the BP-4 Disc Golf Backpack by Prodigy!


This bag may look smaller than others on the list, but it still boasts an impressive disc capacity of 16-18 discs in the main compartment and 1-2 putters in a putter pouch on top.


In addition to the main disc compartment, the BP-4 provides a dedicated spot for up to a 32oz. water bottle as well as a pocket for all your small essentials.


One downside to this bag is the storage pocket is not enclosed with a zipper, but rather Velcro. Luckily the pocket is plenty deep to prevent your items from falling out.


While it may have less storage, the BP-4 backpack is very simplistic, easy to use, and will certainly be a great option to allow you to play a round of disc golf with everything you need.

MSRP $19.99

Next on our list is the Innova Discover Pack.


Innova kept things simple with this entry level backpack in their line up by featuring just a single water bottle holder and a small storage pocket on top that can be used for your main putter, small items such as keys and your wallet, or both.


The bag is rated to hold 15 discs, which is more than enough for a quick round of disc golf, but definitely less than some of the other bags on this list.


One quality that players have been critical of is the lack of structure, meaning the bag does not want to stand up on it's own all the time, but having it full of discs should help the bag some.


For the price however, the bag is very hard to beat and will certainly get the job done. As a side note, the smaller size of this bag makes it a great option for kids, as they won't be weighed down with too many discs or be overwhelmed with too many pockets.

MSRP $24.99

Bringing up the rear on our list is probably the most unique of all options so far, the Guru Raster Bag!


Why is it unique?


Where most of the options on our list look and function as a traditional backpack (except for the Infinite Slinger Bag), the Raster bag does double duty, acting as not only a disc golf bag, but a hydration pack as well.


The Raster bag only holds 11-12 discs, which is far below most options on our list but still plenty for a quick round where you only use putters and mids, or for the casual player who typically doesn't need many discs.


This capacity is spread out with 7-8 being placed on the back in the main compartment of the bag and 4 total being stored in the front elastic pouches, 2 on each side.


In addition to the capacity for a hydration bladder, the extra compartment could instead be used for storage of regular items or even extra discs. 2 carabiners, 1 on each side, also allow the owner to attach bag tags or a towel, or both.


Because the Raster bag is not a traditional backpack, it won't provide the convenience of standing up on its own, but this is the tradeoff for having a lightweight bag that is very easy to store and tote around.


If you're looking for something unique, give the Raster a try!

And that concludes our list!


As you can see, it is very possible to pick yourself up a quality bag for less than just a mere $25!


While you may make some compromises in picking up a cheaper bag, I assure you that the bag will definitely function well for you to get started and beyond.


At some point you may decide to upgrade, but if not you will certainly be able to play many rounds of enjoyable disc golf anyways.


My first disc golf bag still gets some use from time to time, whether by me or a guest playing with me, and still works just as well today as the day I bought it years ago.


So grab yourself a backpack style bag, stuff it full of discs, and go get a round of disc golf in as soon as possible!


Happy Disc Golfing!
