Vessel Player Stand Bag Review (Unofficial)

Recommended Posts

Vessel Golf Player Stand Bag (14-way in Matte Black)

I went through a lot of bags before I ended up with the Vessel and I'm so happy with it that I decided to do a quick review of the bag in case others considering picking one up! I was actually looking at this bag (albeit in black since the matte black wasn't available yet) last year, but when I got quoted $200 shipping out here to Hawaii that made the purchase unrealistic. My interest was piqued again when I saw a friend had picked one up so I decided to try and find one from a vendor that wasn't going to charge me the price of a bag for shipping. Luckily for me I found this bag on eBay with much more reasonable shipping. After going over the entire bag, I found it has many of the features I enjoyed on the Ping Hoofer and the Sun Mountain Four 5. The overall quality is way better, (with the Ping Hoofer coming close) which is what you'd expect when paying over $300 for a golf bag! Enough of that...on to my thoughts!

The good:

  • The layout of the 14-way top, especially the putter well!
  • Plenty of storage including a 'stealth' valuables pocket with a lock!
  • Extremely comfortable straps
  • Magnetic rangefinder pouch
  • Stealthy design with very few logos (I'm a fan of the incognito look)
  • Enclosed base with smooth stand leg deployment
  • Minimal tangling when pulling clubs out of the bag 
  • Impressive build quality

The okay:

  • The towel hook/loop doubles as a ball marker, which looks kind of odd (UPDATE: Vessel is sending me a 2.0 towel loop!)
  • No full length dividers
  • No dedicated water bottle pouch. The cold item zipper pouch looks to be more dual use, so we'll see how it is on the course. 

The 2.0 Player Stand bag has been released since I purchased my bag and I suspect there are a few differences between the generations, but seeing how there's not a lot that can be changed I'm guessing the difference is minimal. I could've saved myself some money figuring out a way to get this bag last year, but I'm glad I ended up with one and I look forward to getting some mileage on this incredibly sexy golf bag! 

Feel free to post any questions in the thread and I hope y'all found this to be useful!

I saw that one at Aloha Golf Center right before I bought this one. It's a gorgeous bag!

Vessel came through and hooked me up with a carbon fiber towel ring from the 2.0 bags! Solid upgrade over the original one for sure.

      Press Release:
      FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Jan. 28, 2019) – Titleist, Golf’s Symbol of Excellence, introduces five new golf bag models across two distinct categories – stand and hybrid – for the 2019 season.
      TITLEIST PLAYERS COLLECTION: The Titleist Players Collection stand bags – Players 4 StaDry, Players 4 Plus and Players 4 – offer feature-rich designs for dedicated golfers seeking a lightweight stand bag without sacrificing storage or durability.
      The Players 4 StaDry is the ultimate performance option for golfers that walk in all weather conditions. Fourteen percent lighter than the prior generation model, Players 4 StaDry offers the same lightweight construction and features as the Players 4 – including a 25 percent increase in strap padding for more comfort while carrying – but with premium waterproof materials and seam-sealed protection. The Players 4 Plus is designed for golfers seeking the versatility and comfort of a lightweight stand bag but with extra storage options.

      To commemorate the launch, the Players 4 Plus will be on display this week on the PGA Tour, carried by the caddies of Titleist brand ambassadors competing in the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The black, white and red bag model is one of 13 colorways in the Players 4 Plus line.
      TITLEIST HYBRID COLLECTION: The new Titleist Hybrid Collection bags are distinctly designed for golfers who like to walk and ride, offering the perfect blend of premium cart and stand bag features.
      The two new models – Hybrid 14 and Hybrid 5 – combine the versatility of a Titleist stand bag with an added cart strap loop that allows access to the valuables pocket when strapped into the cart.
      The Hybrid 14, with 14 full-length club dividers, provides superior organization with maximum storage, while the Hybrid 5 offers a more lightweight, cart-friendly design.
      AVAILABILITY: The new Titleist Players and Hybrid Collection golf bags will be available in golf shops beginning Feb. 1, 2019, starting at $200. Customization is available on all bag models.
