Golf Digest released its list of the Best Golf Bags for 2017 and it includes five Sun Mountain golf bags!
Sun Mountain winners of the 2017 Golf Digest Editors’ Choice awards are the 2Five for Best Lightweight Carry Bag, 3.5 LS for Best Golf Carry Bag, 5.5 LS as the Best Hybrid Golf Bag, C-130 for Best Golf Cart Bag, and the ClubGlider Meridian as Best Golf Travel Bag.
2Five is the lightest, full-featured golf bag on the market, weighing in at the scant two and a half pounds. So, it’s quite fitting to be named the Best Lightweight Golf Bag. Sun Mountain reduced weight by using carbon-fiber legs, high strength-to-weight plastics, and ultra-lightweight and durable fabrics like those used in mountaineering tents.
3.5 LS was named the Best Golf Carry Bag for 2017. The 3.5 LS weighs three and a half pounds and is designed for the golfer who likes an ultra-lightweight bag but wants a few more features. Like Sun Mountain’s 2Five golf bag, the 3.5 LS is constructed with lightweight nylon fabric, high-strength-to-weight plastic and carbon fiber legs. Adding a pound results in a thicker shoulder strap, a more cushioned hip pad, and three more pockets.
Golf Digest said, “Hybrid bags can be used on a cart or carried and need to have attributes that appeal to a dual audience.” The 5.5 LS offers that dual appeal and was named Best Hybrid Golf Bag. 5.5 LS is light enough to carry, at five and a half pounds, while also featuring a bigger, 11” diameter top and nine pockets including: three water-resistant valuables pockets, a clear-view phone pocket and a velour-lined GPS pocket with a protective, thermo-formed front panel.
Named the Best Golf Cart Bag, the Sun Mountain C-130 continues as the company’s best-selling cart bag. The 2017 C-130 offers the abundance of pocket space and golfer-friendly features that have kept it in the top spot for eight years, plus some new features such as Smart Straps that offer a new way to secure the bag to a golf cart, more velour-lined valuable pockets and an easy-access range finder pocket.
