Great reviews guys, The 3.5LS is a definite contender for my next bag, hopefully next year the prices drop a little. Thank you for the informative reviews

Guys great job! I'm close to making the move on this 3.5 stand bag, my only question is did Sun Mountain discontinue the 2.5? I was originally going to buy the 2.5 but now am leaning towards the 3.5, I'm a bit confused as eBay is listing new 2.5 bags for 2017 and don't really know what's different about the 2017 from the 2016, Sunmountain website is only showing the original 2.5 bag, I'm a bit confused

I just got caught up on all the stage two reviews. You guys all did an excellent job on these. Kudos to all.

 

I m over supplies in bags now. 1 true carry bag, 2 stand bags and a cart bag. So really no need or room for another one. Lol. But this looks like it checks a lot of the boxes.

2.5 is still part of the lineup

 

It goes 2.5, 3.5ls, 4.5 now. I believe there's two variants of the 4.5

 

Here is there 2017 catalog http://www.sunmountain.com/catalog/2017/bag-cart/html5/index.html?page=1&server=

No problem man. I don't think they made any notable changes to the 2.5 for 2017, which is why they asked us to review the new 3.5ls instead!

Yeah that's what I thought, I didn't enter this testing opportunity because I was all set to buy the 2.5 and then saw it at PGA superstore and determined I didn't like it and it was not for me, you have confirmed the 3.5 is the bag for me. I have the H2NO now and it's a bit too heavy to carry in the summer heat.

Yeah, heck I had the regular three5 before this and the 3.5LS is just so much easier to carry. Being about a half pound lighter helps, but I think the the thicker straps really are what makes it easier on the shoulders.

I just picked up the 4.5 14-way and love it.  The only improvement I wold like to see is a insulated beverage pocket.  Otherwise this being my first non-Nike bag, I am fairly pleased...

I'm looking to get the C-130. It looks like there is some thumbs up reveries on it, so that's good news, I'm liking the USA bag.

 

that's the colorway I got !!!!!

Looking to get the cart bag. I don't walk much and if I do it will be with a push cart, I have messed up my shoulders and back with baseball, softball, and hockey, so carrying can get me really sore really quick.

 

My wife and kids told me to wait until Christmas so they have something to get me.

  • 2 weeks later...

Hey all been a few weeks since the initial review and wanted to pop in since my last couple of rounds. The 3.5 is still fantastic, in fact I think I like it better now then when I finished my review. Everything is holding up so far and as long as that continues I think my final score should rise a bit. For any walkers out there take a hard look at this bag!

Stage 1 of my review is up!

 

Looking forward to answering any and all questions from the community!

 

Joe, how is the height adjustment range of the shoulder straps?  I'm finding on my Titleist Sta Dry that I can't get the straps high enough up so the bag is essentially riding too low on my back, making it more difficult to walk.  Have you found you're able to get it as high or low on your back as you want?

Pretty darn good. I can get them high enough so it's almost like a backpack (several inches above my lower back or low enough where it's almost below my butt

 

Just had the wife snap some pics

I have the same bag.  After 10 years with my Ogio Exo, I had to get a new one after the legs on it refused to prevent the bag from torquing and falling over.  Love the Four 5!  I was looking for a fairly light bag that had a full length 14 way divider.
