ClubGlider Golf Travel Bag Review

An internet search for Sun Mountain ClubGlider golf travel bag versus Club Glove revealed this review –


The article continues:

“Seldom do I become so excited with a piece of golf equipment as with Sun Mountain’s ClubGlider four-wheeled travel golf bag carrier. Unlike other golf inventions, which may promise to shave a stroke or two off your game, the ClubGlider actually improves your life. I often travel by air and have lugged my golf bag to all points in the US and many abroad. While I love playing new courses, I dread struggling with transporting my golf clubs on long walks in and around airports. No matter how lightly I pack my golf travel bag, the strain on my forearm, shoulders, and back in bending over, lifting, and dragging my bag and all begins to take its toll long before I even arrive at my destination or hit a shot. No more, my days of drudgery are over with Sun Mountain’s ClubGlider to the rescue.

My golf travel equipment has evolved from the canvas bag to the heavy, but durable plastic carry cases such as SKB makes and then gravitated to the lighter, heavy-duty fabric wheeled ones that Club Glove makes. All have served me well, but my ClubGlider is worlds ahead of the competition!”

Golf Bag Review: Sun Mountain versus OGIO, Nike, Callaway

Golf forums are full of people asking each other to compare and contrast products. One recent golf cart bag review showed Sun Mountain versus OGIO, Sun Mountain versus Nike and Sun Mountain versus Callaway to name a few.

In this review the cart bags from Sun Mountain, OGIO and Nike all received the top grade of A+.

The review compared the bags based upon price, club dividers, storage and functionality, and features.

About the price of the Sun Mountain C-130 golf cart bag the review said, “The bag is almost a steal.”

About full-length divider, storage and functionality and features, the review said. “FIFTEEN (15) full length dividers and all the features you need. Love the molded handles on the top to help maneuver the bag.”

According to the review, the “bad” of the bag was comparatively small number of pockets and that the putter well isn’t fully separate. Upon review you see that the word ‘comparatively’ is key. The Nike bag was listed as having 19 pockets versus Sun Mountain C-130’s nine pockets. It’d be interesting to compare actual storage volume in these pockets. We’re confident you can fit everything you need and many, many things you don’t need in our C-130. After all, we borrowed the name from the cargo plane of the same name. And, the C-130 putter well is in fact a separate club division from the other 14 full-length dividers and positioned on the spine of the bag so easiest to access when the bag is on a cart.

Best Golf Bags 2015 / 2016

According to Golf Datatech, Sun Mountain is the #1 golf bag company in the country so it stands to reason that many of the best selling golf bags for 2015 / 2016 are Sun Mountain bags.

Golf Datatech’s ranking is based upon the quantifiable factor of sales. Golf Digest Hot List, on the other hand,  is a more subjective, qualitative ranking based upon the expert opinions of a panel of highly regarded golf equipment writers.

Some of the top rated golf bags for 2015 recently recognized on the Hot List include the Sun Mountain Three 5, H2NO waterproof and Front 9 golf carry bags, the C-130golf  cart bag, and the XCR hybrid golf bag.

Every year since 2007 the Hot List has recognized the Sun Mountain C-130 as a best golf cart bag. Recent award winners are the C-130 cart bag with 14 individual club dividers and the new C-130 7-way with just seven club dividers. Both models offer sturdy top handles for ease in picking up the bag and forward-facing pockets so all pockets are accessible when on the cart. C-130 also offers a hidden cart-strap channel tunnel so the cart strap goes through the bag and behind the pockets instead of crushing or blocking access to the pockets. Some prefer 14-way tops, some don’t. Now both options are available. As well as a C-130 model with a stand for cart-golfers who like a stand bag for the practice range.

Several Sun Mountain bags were recognized as the best golf carry / stand bags. The ultra-lightweight Front 9 carry bag has made the Hot List the last two years. Golf Digest said, “This small bag earns high marks for performing big. The top is flared to make it easier to pull clubs out and put them back.”

Along with the C-130 cart bag, the Sun Mountain Three 5 carry bag has been a regular on the top-sellers list and in the Hot List. For the 2016 Three 5 the writers at Golf Digest said, “The increased mobility of the strap allows you to put it on and take it off with ease. The top of this light bag was also updated: there’s a slight flare at the top to make it easier to put clubs in.”

Sun Mountain’s line of waterproof H2NO golf bags remains popular as well. Long the top-selling bag in Europe, more and more Americans are appreciating the benefit of having a waterproof golf bag. The H2NO Lite was awarded Hot List Gold, there is also a H2NO Lite with a 14-way top and a cart bag model. For even lighter weight, try the H2NO Ultra Lite.

XCR is a new bag for 2016. Much like the C-130 S, XCR is a cart bag with legs. As Golf Digest said, “So you like to ride in a cart, but you still want to be able to take your bag to the range without it falling down. The solution: a cart bag with a stand. This bag is built to fit in your cart, but it has a stand, too. “

The SandTrap Reviews Sun Mountain’s Reflex Golf Push Cart

A writer from took the new Sun Mountain Reflex golf push cart out for a test drive and filed a nice report. This writer’s experience with other Sun Mountain push carts – Speed Cart, Micro-Cart and MC-3 – worked their way into this review, too, which makes it even more enlightening for the reader.

The primary purpose of a golf push cart is to carry the weight of the clubs and allow for an easy, ergonomic push around the course. Engineering the carts to be lightweight and fold up easily and compactly for transport to and from the course greatly enhanced the popularity of push carts. Looking like a piece of athletic equipment removed any possible stigma long-ago associated with the ole’ two-wheeled trolleys.

The writer of this review spent much of his review talking about the small folded size of the Reflex, the ease with which is opens and folds, and the stability of the cart on the course.

Here are some highlights of what the writer said:

Tour Series golf rain jacket review

The folks at Plugged In Golf recently did a thorough wear-testing review of our new Tour Series golf rain jacket and rain pants.

Regarding the performance of the waterproof golf jacket the reviewer said:

“My first round with the Long-Sleeve Pullover was a great test of its versatility. When I teed off, it was sunny and 60+ degrees. By the time the round was over, the sun was gone, the winds were howling, and the temperature had dropped into the 40′s. I was equally comfortable the entire time. When it was warmer, the jacket’s breathability kept me from heating up. As it cooled, the wind resistance kept me warm.”

Beyond breathability and protection from wind and rain, golf jackets (as the name implies) also have to work for golf. On the topic of what we rate as ‘range of motion’ the reviewer said,

“As for how the jacket moved, I’ll say what I always do about the best apparel: I never noticed it. At no time did the jacket bother my swing in any way, nor did it require any adjusting.”

And that, in a nutshell, is our goal with all of our golf jackets – to do its job while going unnoticed.

The Sun Mountain Tour Series includes golf rain pants, too, constructed from the same waterproof, breathable, stretching material as the jacket. About the golf pants, the review said,

“The Tour Series Rain Pants impressed me from the moment I pulled them on. I immediately noticed how light and breathable they were. In my experience, many apparel companies mistake rain pants for arctic expedition wear – they’re heavy, over-insulated, and stuffy. Sun Mountain made these pants to protect from rain and wind in a wide range of temperatures (they claim 40-75 degrees), not just sub-zero temperatures. In addition to being comfortable and mobile, these pants have a cleverly designed cuff that snaps up to shorten them 2.5″. This is the kind of feature that was clearly designed by real golfers who understand what makes great apparel.”

Well, that’s music to our ears because Sun Mountain takes great pride is being a company of golfers who design golf gear for other golfers. Sure, the Tour Series looks good and functions well off the course, but first and foremost, it must perform on the course.

In conclusion the Tour Series golf rain jacket and rain pants review ended with, “I’m really pleased with the Sun Mountain Tour Series and have put it into my regular rotation. It moves well, the waterproofing is excellent, and, most impressive, it keeps me comfortable in a wide range of temperatures and conditions.”

We’d be honored to make it into your regular rotation, as well. To see the full review go to —

Sun Mountain H2NO Lite waterproof golf bag review by the UK’s Golf A Lot

Jamie Kennedy of wrote a quite thorough review of the Sun Mountain H2NO Lite waterproof golf bag.

In his review Jamie said, “In foreign climates rain can be harsh and short lived, however in the UK it is typically more gentle and longer lasting. I often find myself starting, playing and finishing a round in the rain. Being able to keep your clubs, your gear and your valuables dry on days like that is a nice luxury to have. Just ask anyone who has tried to pay for a 19th hole drink, wearing a rain-soaked sweater, with a soggy £10 note!” [Read more…]
