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.

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.

That same technology is now being applied to a line of wheeled-luggage that includes a suitcase and a carry-on. ClubGlider Suitcase offers the same ease of use as the golf travel bag thanks to the extendable leg that supports 100% of the weight and then simply retracts away for travel. The suitcase is constructed with the same highly durable, ballistic-style nylon as the ClubGlider Meridian golf travel bag. The ClubGlider Carry-On coordinates with the suitcase and is sized to fit in airplane overhead bins. Both pieces are available now at $349.99 for the suitcase and $239.99 for the carry-on.
