Got the official info on this the other day and thought you might find it interesting. Wilson Staff is officially launching its new ECO stand bag.

What makes the ECO interesting is that its made from over 50 recycled plastic water bottles.  The bottles themselves are ground up and melted and then turned into recycled polyester. 50 bottles will make 1.7 yards of recycled polyester, and that equals 1 bag. According to Wilson, recycled polyester is virtually the same as virgin polyester, but takes 59% less energy to produce. wilson eco 1.jpg

Apart from being recycled, the ECO has a 5-way padded top with two full length dividers and an integrated handle. It's fairly light, coming in at 4.3 pounds. It has six pockets which, from what we can see, look pretty standard - and it comes in three colors: Alpine Green, Deep Ocean Blue and Cloud Silver. wilson eco 2.jpg

The ECO was not included in this year's MyGolfSpy Stand Bag Buyer's Guide - but its big brother the EXO was. The EXO finished in the middle of the pack overall, not really standing out in any category. The ECO is more compact and lighter than the EXO, which weighs in at 5.5 pounds.

The ECO is priced pretty aggressively at $149.99. You can check it out here
