The 7 Best Disc Golf Bags with Coolers: I Picked This One…


Yes, you need a bag on the disc golf course. For storage, discs, disc golf accessories, snacks, and drinks. But when it comes to most bags like my Dynamic Discs Trooper Bag, there really aren’t a lot of good places to keep drinks (or better yet, keep them cold). So I’m on a mission with this post. And that mission is simple: research and find myself the best disc golf bag, with a cooler attached, to play with on the disc golf course.

In this post, I’m going to lay out the 7 best disc golf bags with coolers and show you what they’re all about. The good, the bad, the ugly, and my choice for best bag with a cooler attached. I’m going to shop around a bit and let you see my process of buying one of these bags. And hopefully, come summer time, I’ll be able to use my new bag to help quench my thirst, keep me hydrated, and keep anything else I need cold (for my rounds on the course). So here are the 7 bags that I’m looking at ⬇️:

The 7 best disc golf bags with coolers


1. Dynamic Discs Soldier Cooler Disc Golf Bag
2. Rogue Iron Disc Golf Bag with Cooler
3. Throwback All Day Pack with Cooler
4. The Throwback Pack 2.0 Disc Golf Backpack with Dual Coolers
5. BagLane Fusion Elite Disc Golf Backpack w/Seat & Cooler
6. Viking Discs Cooler Sack XL Disc Golf Bag
7. Dynamic Discs Ranger H2O Backpack Disc Golf Bag

Why you need a cooler bag

Hydration and more hydration

This one is fairly simple. You really need a good cooler bag for one reason: hydration. We play a ton of rounds right in the middle of some nasty heat waves. And it’s really important to have cold drinks that can help you get through your rounds without slowly dying from heat stroke. You should have more than enough fluids if you get a cooler bag.

That’s exactly what I need. Sometimes just a water bottle or two won’t cut it for me…especially if they’re not cold. Now my Dynamic Discs Trooper Bag will hold a decent amount, but I’m a firm believer in drinking at least a 1/2 gallon or more of water per round. Staying hydrated is very important. Dehydration can affect your thinking and possibly ruin your round. So I’m going to research the best bags and pick one to buy. My pick will be before the conclusion of this post.

The 7 best disc golf bags with coolers

1. Rogue Iron Disc Golf Bag with Cooler

Price: around $35-40 dollars

The Rogue Iron backpack disc golf bag seems like a unique spin on a cooler bag. Instead of having a large compartment for disc golf discs, it’s basically a small, insulated cooler wrapped in fabric with disc pockets on the outside.

Pros: The cooler section is very large and can hold up to around 10 drinks with ice. They also claim that the bag can hold 14 to 16 discs in the bag’s outer pockets. This bag, I feel, is designed more for the casual disc golfer who is playing with friends and wants to take a good variety of snacks and drinks with them.

Cons: As for reviews, the Rogue Iron backpack has 3.5 stars out of 5 on Amazon. A few reviewers have stated the quality of materials is not very good and starts coming apart after prolonged use of five to six months or more.

Recap: Most golfers say that this is a decent bag for the money and that this may be perfect for the casual disc golfer who prefers to take a case brewskis out on the course. I’m not sure if this is my bag, yet. Pretty interesting design, though. You can get one here on Amazon.

2. Dynamic Discs Soldier Cooler Disc Golf Bag

Price: $65-75 dollars

Alright, so the next bag that I came across is the Dynamic Discs Soldier Cooler bag. It looks essentially the same as the regular Dynamic Discs Soldier bag, but with added insulation in one section for ice, drinks, etc. When I first looked at reviews, this bag has been rated very highly on Amazon and InfiniteDiscs.com (4.8 stars on Amazon and 4.75 on Infinite).

Pros: I’m a huge fan of Dynamic so it’s cool to see that they’ve made a small cooler bag. This bag is relatively smaller and more compact compared to backpack bags. It has a shoulder strap, but many reviewers have recommended a set of backpack straps to distribute the weight (because putting five to six drinks in it can weigh you down). But those straps seem to make this bag awesome! In the main part of the bag there are three sections. All three sections can hold a total of 18 discs. But the middle section is insulated and can hold your ice and drinks, with the ability to hold around 12 discs on the left and right.

Cons: it sounds like you really need to get the backpack straps, which can be an extra $25-30 dollars, to enjoy a fully stocked bag. Also, the bag is a bit flimsy if you take the cooler section out for more discs. Other than that, the bag is solid.

Recap: the Soldier Cooler Bag is a really nice, but moderately expensive disc golf bag made by Dynamic Discs. Even though the price is up a bit at around $60-70 dollars, it can hold 10 to 12 discs and up to six drinks in the cooler compartment. Check out the Cooler Bag here on InfiniteDiscs.com. If you want to get some straps as well, check out the DGA gel backpack straps here on Amazon.

3. Throwback All Day Pack with Cooler

Price: $65-75 dollars

The All Day Pack from Throwback Sports is a really great piece of equipment that is similar to the Rogue Iron bag from #1 on this list. Though, I will say that it appears as though the All Day Pack is a bit sturdier than the Rogue Iron. The All Day Pack looks a bit cooler, too.

Pros: the All Day Pack has a ton of fantastic reviews stating that it’s super lightweight, has great weight distribution, cooler is a good size, bag is comfortable while wearing, sturdy when standing up by itself, and is just generally better than advertised.

Cons: bag is mainly a cooler, like #1 on this list. Also, if you’re looking for a primarily discs only bag, this isn’t it. In fact, it can only hold around seven or eight discs. If you like to carry more, grab a different bag. Also, it’s about twice as expensive as the Rogue Iron cooler bag.

Recap: overall excellent disc golf bag that seems to last (might be the way it’s made) but is semi-expensive. For what you pay, you’re getting a cool looking cooler bag that can hold seven discs. I think I’d be okay with that for a casual round. We’ll see. Grab one for yourself here on Amazon.

4. The Throwback Pack 2.0 Disc Golf Backpack with Dual Coolers

Price: around $100 dollars

Throwback Sports also creates a more expensive version called the Throwback Pack 2.0 that comes with a small insulated cooler on either side of the main disc golf pocket. This huge backpack looks very nice and is rated fairly high on Amazon.

Pros: it holds a lot of discs, about 25 or so, with the inside and outside the bag pocket storage. The bag also features two separate insulated side pocket coolers plus multiple bottle holders on the side of the bag. There’s even more storage at the top for your stuff – wallet, keys, Friction gloves, etc. The large bottom platform has a sturdy design for an ease of staying upright on any surface according to Throwback Sports. This bag looks like a real value for the money and it looks pretty cool, too.

Cons: the bag is very large and bulky, even for a backpack bag. The price of $100 bucks, while a value for everything you get, is still fairly expensive. The coolers are a bit small and can only hold about two drinks a piece. Lastly, multiple reviewers have stated that the bag material has not held up that well over time but that this was still a decent bag.

Recap: the 2.0 appears to be a good quality bag for your money. I mean, you really get a lot for what you pay, so it is probably worth it if the bag lasts you a year or two. It has two separate coolers, has a bunch of storage, and holds a ton of discs. Hmm, this may be the bag I choose! You can get one here on Amazon.

5. BagLane Fusion Elite Disc Golf Backpack w/Seat & Cooler

Price: $125-135 dollars

The BagLane Fusion Elite Backpack is a huge backpack that comes with dual coolers, a seat, and room for over 25 discs. This is an interesting take on a disc golf bag and could be an awesome investment in your game.

Pros: this bag holds a lot of discs. There’s also a built in metal seat at the top of the bag that they state can support up to 285 lbs! There are built in dual side coolers with a bottom drain for melted ice or built up condensation in the coolers. Around the bag, there’s even more storage for all your stuff. BagLane also states that this bag is ultra durable and reinforced with the avid disc golfer in mind. Lastly, most reviewers on Amazon have stated that the seat is actually pretty comfortable and perfect for courses that don’t have a lot of seating. And a portable seat means you can sit anywhere you want on the course!

Cons: I’m still skeptical about the built in seat. I mean, you’re basically sitting on your bag. My question is, “does it hold up after prolonged use?” So far, I haven’t found that answer and the reviews on the seat are only positive. One of the only reviewer complaints was that the discs may sometimes fall out of the front but the rest of the reviews were mostly positive.

Recap: the Fusion Elite Bag is pretty expensive at about $130 dollars. But it appears to be a pretty well-built bag that offers two coolers and a built in seat for sitting anywhere on the course. My only hesitation would be buying this bag for the seat and it not holding up. Cool bag, though. You can get one here on Amazon.

6. Viking Discs Cooler Sack XL Disc Golf Bag

Price: $20 dollars

The Viking Cooler Bag is the cheap version of a cooler bag. It offers basic disc storage and a small amount of cooler storage for disc golfers.

Pros: first off, the XL is the cheapest disc on this list. It holds a fair amount of discs for a small bag: 10-12 discs. It appears to have decent storage, too.

Cons: there are absolutely no reviews and not a lot to go on. That makes me question the quality of the bag and whether this bag would hold up. There’s also no information on the cooler section.

Recap: you cant beat $20 bucks. If it sucks, just upgrade and you won’t have lost much. But I probably wont get this bag. If you want to try it out, grab one here on InfiniteDiscs.com.

7. Dynamic Discs Ranger H2O Backpack Disc Golf Bag

Price: $170-180 dollars

The Ranger H2O Backpack Bag is the cream of the crop. It’s one of the most premium and well-designed bags in all of disc golf. But you have to pay for quality.

Pros: like I said, this bag is very well-built and designed. Dynamic Discs loves to make awesome disc golf gear. This is probably their best overall bag. The Ranger H2O has a ridiculous amount of storage and comes with a large water bladder for drinking water. Also, the reviews of this are all glowing at 4.8 stars out of 5 (I would hope so for this being a close to $200 dollar bag). Most reviewers on Amazon have stated that this is a very durable and comfortable bag (again, $180 dollars should get you all of that).

Cons: even though it has the water bladder and storage, it’s not a true cooler bag. It also has almost too much space for storage and discs. Lastly, it’s very expensive.

Recap: super nice bag and you’ll definitely get your money’s worth out of it. But it doesn’t have an insulated cooler pocket so you may want to look at another bag on this list if you want a dedicated cooler bag. If you want this bag, grab it here on Amazon.

My Choice…

The Dynamic Discs Soldier Cooler Disc Golf Bag

So I decided that I’m going to buy the Soldier Cooler Bag from Dynamic Discs. I was really on the fence about this bag and the Throwback Pack 2.0. I chose the Soldier bag, though, for a number of reasons:

• I wanted a smaller bag with a decent cooler. I recently bought the Infinite Discs Slinger Bag and have enjoyed a smaller bag for my rounds.

• I didn’t want to spend $100 bucks on a bag at the moment. Even though the Soldier Bag is $65-75 bucks, I just didn’t feel like dropping $100 and having to lug around that huge backpack.

• I’m a huge fan of Dynamic Discs. While one day I may try out a Throwback Sports bag, I’ve been thoroughly impressed with Dynamic Discs’ quality of their products over the years. So I know this won’t be any exception.
