What is your Bag? (Carry?)

I currently use a Sun Mountain MPB ... I love it because of the 14 club dividers. It's closer to 5.5 lbs, and there's currently a lighter version called the Four 5 (4.5 lbs) that I hope to try in the near future.

I have the Ping Latitude V2... It's nice cause it's a big carry bag that's not too much of a load to lug around... Downside is that although it does have the full length pocket dividers my grips sometimes don't want to cooperate when i'm pulling clubs out or putting them in.... Also the putter well doesn't like to treat me well, and i sometimes have to yank something fierce on the putter to get it out :)

Su Mountain 3.5 is still one of if not the best carry bag on the market. I've got one and after around 6 other carry bags over the years will never buy another brand again.

I have a revolving WITB policy.

I don't mind carrying my Nike Sq Tour. Heavier than some bags, but overall very comfortable.

why do you say that?

 

 

Having multiple dividers seems like a good idea, but if you use larger grips (I use midsize with two extra wraps) they get caught going in and out a bunch. Also, if you use a putter grip (which I do NOT) you can't even get the grip into one of those slots. I have a friend with a bag like mine and he uses jumbo putter grip, he ended up selling his bag.

 

Also the dividers keep the clubs separate, but they can still get jammed together by the weight of the clubs when the bag is in the "stand position" the dividers are very thin nylon.

 

I'm not saying that bags like these are BAD, but when this bag reaches the end of it's life, I'll be replacing it with something like the three5 which has 6 larger pockets.

So, seems like there are not lots of under 5lb carry bags - what are you using, why did you choose it, and what do you think of it?

 

Do those Ping under 4 straps take any getting used to, or do they work out OK?

Many bags with dividers don't run the divider the full length of the bag so even though the heads are separate the grips still get tangled.

My carry bag is the Mizuno Kabuki, nice to carry, comes with 2 x harness options, single or dual aerostrap harness., I keep both on and use the single for short carries, there is enough pocket room to carry all the junk I need so it is as heavy as I make it, divider system works well. Main gripe is the mesh pockets on the outside damage too easily and things fall out.

I have the Sun Mountain Swift X. I love this other than it only has 2 club dividers. My irons get very jumbled together. I should have gone with the Ping 4 under or the 3.5 as they have more dividers. I do have the Ping Moon bag as well but won't use it after the Swift X. I may add a pound but its worth it not laying clubs on the ground...

IMO Ogio bags are the best in all areas: looks, construction, features. I haven't tried the recoil, but the Ozone and Grom are great.

Yeah, the Grom is what I have right now. Just looking for my second set, hehe.

 

How about Bennington stand bags?
