2Five Golf Bag Reviews

The Sun Mountain 2Five lightweight golf bag continues to receives positive reviews from the golf media.

Weighing only 2.5 pounds, it’s the lightest full-featured golf bag on the market. To put 2.5 pounds into perspective, that’s about the same weight as two wedges, or a pair of golf shoes, or three cans of a soft-drink. When you lift up the 2Five, it’s more like lifting off as the bag seems to launch off the ground.

The bag is made up of carbon fiber legs, lightweight nylonfabric, and high density foam, while featuring a comfortable X-Strap Dual Strap System. The 2Five doesn’t skimp on conveniences, either, offering four pockets including a full-length clothing pocket, velour-lined valuables pocket, water bottle pouch, and ball and accessory pocket.

Along with winning the Golf Digest Editors’ Choice for best lightweight golf bag, it also won the best Sunday bag (and it’s not even a Sunday bag, it’s just as light as one) in the yearly awards by MyGolfSpy.com.

Below are two mentions of the bag in June issues of Golf magazine and Golfweek.

2Five is offered in 11 different colors at $219.99.

Leather Up!

The Sun Mountain Leather Series golf bags and accessories are a nod to golf’s storied past, featuring styles and materials that speak to the richness and tradition of the game. These golf bags are not merely historical replicas; they are designed for the way golf is played today.

The Sun Mountain Leather Stand Golf Bag features a 9”, four-way top with full-length club dividers. The bag’s five pockets include a full-length clothing pocket, velour-lined valuables pocket and three accessory pockets. Combining tradition with technology, this classic leather golf bag features carbon-fiber legs, high strength-to-weight plastics and a built-in handle in the bag’s top for ease in picking the bag up and setting it down.

The Leather Golf Cart Bag, distinguished by its full-length belly pocket, is designed for cart use but at 4 ½ lbs. could just as easily be carried. The cart bag features a 9”, four-way top with full-length club dividers. The bag’s four pockets include an ample belly pocket, velour-lined valuables pocket and two accessory pockets. This bag also includes lift-assist handles integrated into the top and bottom of the bag for ease in lifting in and out of a car trunk.

The Leather Sunday bag is reminiscent of some of the earliest golf bags. By using lightweight, modern components, though, Sun Mountain was able to minimize weight to only 4 ¼ lbs., making it an easy carry.

Leather golf accessories in the series include matching leather hoods, and matching leather headcovers in either stripe or chevron pattern.

 

Should you carry your bag, push a cart, or ride in a cart?

The current issue of Golf Today NW includes an interesting article from Dr. Harry G. Sese answering the question should I ride, carry, or push.

Dr. Sese recommends that for anyone suffering from a health condition that doesn’t allow them to elevate their heart rate, but allows them to continue to play golf, riding a cart is the best option.

If you’re a rider, then you need to be sure your gear matches with a riding cart. By ensuring that you have a sturdy, yet lightweight cart bag, (like Sun Mountain’s C-130 best-selling golf cart bag) you’ll be allowing yourself the peace of mind to know that you won’t be struggling to get your bag to the cart or from the cart to the car after a long round of golf.

Dr. Sese continues by saying that if you’re relying on a round of golf for your exercise, riding is not the way to go. He recommends instead that you walk and carry your clubs or use a golf push cart. The push cart is considered by Dr. Sese to be safer than carrying your bag, for those with neck, shoulder, and back pains.

Plugged-In Golf H2NO Review

The folks at Plugged-In Golf conducted a VERY thorough test of the Sun Mountain H2NO waterproof golf bag.

Sun-Mountain-H2No-5

(We do not suggest you try this at home. These are trained professionals on a closed track.)

And we passed …. with flying colors!

The review covers ‘style’, ‘quality’, and ‘design & performance’ and concludes with a video of a waterproof test no golf bag should have to live through. I mean, come on, do you know how much more fine and how much more pressure is behind a hose from 12” than from a rain storm? This test is like running the bag through a hurricane. And then he dumps the whole bag in a pool! We did not design the H2NO to withstand a temper-induced throw into the water hazard. But, alas, the bag passed the test. Whew! [Read more…]

WRX ClubGlider

wrx clubgliderwrx logoRonald Montesano from Golf WRX took our ClubGlider Meridian golf travel bag for a trial run and rated it 4.7 out of 5 for a score of “Fantastic”.

Here’s a summary of what he had to say:

Pros: Sun Mountain’s ClubGlider Meridian is the only golf travel bag that comes equipped with four wheels — one pair with retractable legs — that hold 100 percent of the weight. That provides stability and convenience while transporting clubs through airports, hotels and parking lots.

Cons: With an MSRP of $289, it resides in the higher price range of travel bags.

Bottom Line: The ClubGlider travel bag from Sun Mountain makes traveling easier with a set of added wheels and retractable legs, keeps clubs safe with thick foam padding on the interior and protects against wear with reinforced vinyl on the bottom of the bag. There’s plenty of value here.

For 2014, ClubGlider golf travel bags are available in four different models – Pro, Meridian, Journey and the new Tour Series – offering protection for golfers ranging from weekend warriors to touring professionals. Retail prices are $349, $289, $219, and $319 respectively.
