Bag Boy Bags. Quality or No?


Shrek74

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I'm going to need a new bag as my Purdue-themed bag is already leaning to one side after only a year of use and is even less stable than it started.

I'm looking for a bag that is stable and solid, that doesn't easily twist and move when you handle it. My current bag is so easy to twist and shift around when holding the top grips and just doesn't feel super solid like it has only a couple full-length rods holding it together. So I'm hoping my fellow spies can help me with some thoughts on Bag Boy Bags.

I'm looking at the CB-15 (color USA) and Chiller bag (color red/white/blue), as I'm wanting a bit of a patriotic themed bag this time around to go with my red/white/blue grips and BB&F ferrules. I'm also trying to stay under $200 for this purchase.

What are your thoughts and experiences with Bag Boy golf bags? Do they hold up? Are they solid and stable? Thanks.

Bag Boy does make a quality bag. If you go back at some older testing from 2020, there was a forum member review on the Bag Boy Chiller Cart Bag. I also did a review on the same bag roughly in the same time frame. I copied the link in below. Just click the arrow in the upper right corner. I still have the bag, but I have it out of play currently. The only negative part is the size. It is big and since I travel for work and golf on planes frequently it is a tight squeeze in a Club Glove Pro. Other than that, I love the bag.

My personal pet peeve with any bag/cart combo has been that my bag always skewed around so that it wasn't sitting properly any longer!!

I could not get my then Ogio bag to stay in place on my Clic Gear push cart. GRRRRRR!

Now ... I have converted to BagBoy for both bag and push cart! 

The Compact 3 cart and the Lite Rider Pro Bag. There is a system between the bag and the cart to lock the bag in place!! WINNER!

The Compact 3 is really easy to set up and break down. It's much easier than a Clic Gear or some others I've tried (used to work retail and had lots of practice with opening them up and closing them back down). The package comes with an umbrella holder that screws into a bracket on the handle. It folds down to a decently small footprint (one that fits nicely in my condo storage locker without being cumbersome.

The Lite Rider has many pockets and storage areas. It is almost a tour bag, so many options. It also has a larger well for my larger than normal putter grip. As well, it has a nice large cooler pocket to keep a beverage or two cold during the summer months.

The only drawback of the bag is that the design of the bag is for a power cart, not necessarily for a push cart. I have been using the setup for a couple of years now and it is now my new normal. 

Highly recommend this combination of bag and cart. Happy to provide more testimonial if asked more specific questions.

Bag Boy makes a solid product. Little doubt about that and they are a well established name in the golfing world. They have their Top Lok tech which seems to help with bag twisting and overall compatibility issues some find with bag and cart combos. That being said I can't say I have never owned a Bag Boy bag. I have sold a lot of them and can't say I found anything particularly wrong with them. 

I have always leaned in the OGIO family of bags for one reason or another.

If you don’t mind answering, what  is the make/manufacturer of your Purdue themed bag?

I recently purchased a Bag Boy CB15 in the red/white/blue color scheme. When I made the purchase, I also got a two-year warranty covering things like zippers, workmanship, etc.

I mate the bag to my Bag Boy Quad XL Push Cart. It fits perfectly.

As far as the quality of the bag, I see no areas of concern as the quality is there. The material is stout, good-looking, and the zippers work as advertised. It has enough places to hold all my gear with room to spare. I don't think I could have made a better purchase.

This bag replaced an Ogio that wasn't made with Top-Lok technology like the Bag Boy, and the bag eventually got worn out from being fastened to the cart. The Ogio zippers went kaput during year two. I don't envision that happening to this Bag Boy CB 15.

Down here in the Florida sun, I’ve found that Bag Boy materials fade faster than other brands. OGIO is better and Sun Mountain seems to be the best

In year 3 of my BagBoy gear, Bag and Push Cart. I used an Ogio bag for a while because it had a larger well for my oversize putter grip. The zipper pulls gave out long before I gave the bag the heave ho. I used a Clic Gear push cart until the brake line broke. 

I moved to the BagBoy product specifically for the TopLok technology and I couldn't be happier. The bag never skews off centre. The bag/cart combo is really holding up well as I've played about 150 rounds with the gear now.

Highly recommend.

Cheers, keep hitting it down the middle!

The end of this season marks four seasons with my BagBoy Chiller bag and three seasons with my BagBoy Nitron pushcart. I can honestly say that I have zero negatives about either of them even after all this time. The Chiller bag has plenty of room for everything and still looks great. The Top-Lok does a great job of keeping the bag straight and secured on the Nitron cart.

I know this thread is a bit old but, I reviewed the Bag Boy ZTF Stand bag earlier this year.  Good bag. Customizable with removable pockets and such.  Link is in my signature.

A Golfing buddy of mine bought a BagBoy last year.....not sure what model, but he uses a BagBoy push cart with it.   He's never complained about it, but IMO, I've noticed that it has faded BADLY in just one year's time.   It was black.....now looks grey/charcoal.   So much so that when I bought a new bag for myself this fall I went with a Datrek model.   Only used it a couple of months, so I can't comment on how it's holding up yet, but I'm hoping it looks better longer than his BagBoy.

@Fatshot - were you aware that Datrek and Bag Boy are owned/made by same company; Dynamic Brands.  I'd be highly surprised to learn that Datrek is using a better UV blocking technology than Bag Boy would employ - likelihood that its the same is extremely high.  Fingers crossed that you don't experience the same issue.  Cheers
