Sun Mountain ThermalFlex Outerwear

Published by under Golf Apparel

Sun Mountain has been headquartered in the mountains of Missoula, Montana since the mid-80’s. When you live in the mountains, layering clothes is a foregone conclusion. I suppose maybe like applying sunscreen if you live by the beach. It’s so commonplace maybe we haven’t talked about it as much as we should.

Men’s Journal Highlights H2NO Bag

Published by under Golf Products

The March 2014 issue of Men’s Journal magazine is the Spring Gear issue with “2014’s Best Toys, Tools & Gadgets”.


 
Sun Mountain is proud that its newly expanded collection of waterproof golf bags was included in the “Best Of” issue.

Whether carried over your shoulder or via its back straps, the 4-pound Sun Mountain H2NO Ultra Lite is comfortable and discreet – even when packed with clubs. But the waterproof bag doesn’t lose anything being trim: It’s sturdy and feature-packed, with a pullout stand, full-length clothing pocket, and a velour-lined pouch for valuables.” Continue Reading »

One golf ball doesn’t feel like much weight. Put a dozen or so in a bag and let it dangle from your shoulder for 4+ hours and that weight starts to add up.
