The Next Evolution in Golf Travel Bags is Here

Published by under Golf Travel

The next evolution in golf travel bags, ClubGlider is the only golf travel bag with extendable legs that support 100% of the weight.

This leg allows the ClubGlider to be loaded from a standing position, eliminating the need to bend all the way over as with other golf travel bags. Fully loaded, ClubGlider’s legs support 100% of the weight, eliminating on average over 45 pounds of pressure from your shoulders and back. Thanks to the maneuverability of ClubGlider’s pivoting wheels, walking around is effortless. With the ClubGlider golf travel bag, the repeated bending and lifting while waiting in line is a thing of the past. And the wheels retract in one easy motion for secure travel.

ClubGlider includes heavy-duty two-way zippers, thick foam padding extending down the travel bag to protect clubheads and shafts, internal cinch straps, storage pockets, reinforced wear areas, and a lift-assist handle.

And, we’re not the only ones that think it’s great; ClubGlider was awarded Hot List Gold by Golf Digest magazine.

ClubGlider is available in several models offering protection for golfers ranging from weekend warriors to touring professionals.

Most Breathable Golf Rain Gear

Published by under Golf Products

Sun Mountain’s most breathable rain suit, Cumulus, is fully seam-sealed and guaranteed waterproof.

 

Incorporating 2.5 layer technology, Cumulus has a woven shell laminated to a waterproof, breathable membrane, with a protective inner layer. This slick inner layer will be appreciated when taking the suit on and off as well as during the golf swing when it slides over clothing rather than catching and offering resistance to the swing.

 

In addition, a durable water repellent finish provides surface water and stain resistance.

 

Cumulus Jacket features include a pleated back which allows an expanded range of motion, a two-way front zipper that lies flat and out of the way when putting, adjustable hem and cuffs, zippered hand warmer pockets, and a stand up collar.

 

Cumulus rain pants offer the same ultra-lightweight, 2.5 layer, guaranteed waterproof and breathable construction along with a partial elastic waist and zipper fly, zippered hand warmer pockets and wallet pockets, deep lower leg zippers, and a snap system that allows length to be shortened by 2.5”.

 

The compact folded size of the Cumulus provides for easy storage in your golf bag.

 

This unbelievably lightweight and breathable rain suit comes with a two-year waterproof guarantee.
