Replacing my stand bag — suggestions please

Hello hive mind.

As the season winds down I’m thinking about replacing my current bag - a fairly old Ping Hoofer. The bag is in great shape, but the dividers don’t go all the way to the bottom of the bag so getting clubs in / out can be annoying. So my biggest “must have” is that the bag has dividers that go all the way to the bottom of the bag to reduce clubs from getting caught on each other.  I’m fascinated by how this website and others rave about the hoofer, but when you go to the Ping site people have the same complaint about clubs getting caught up because of the dividers. Folks have suggested the Sun Mountain 2.5 or 3.5 but would really like to hear what others think as well. Thanks in advance.

Really depends on what you are looking for in the bag other than the full dividers.  I like the OGIO Woode 8 but it is a hybrid.

Thanks. I walk / carry more than half the time so really looking for a stand bag that can also survive being on a cart. But definitely on the lighter side.

I have seen alot on here with folks liking the sun mountains so hopefully one of them will chime in shortly.

I have a Titleist Hybrid 14 that I've been using for about a year now.  I walk when I play solo, but often ride when I have a guest or my FIL with me.  Survives the cart well, has a strap tunnel, and while not the lightest thing in the world, I find it's well-balanced with both straps on, and I don't have an issue walking with all 14 (occasionally 15) clubs.

I ordered one of these last week and hopefully will be coming in soon....

My reasoning for this is (1) seems to be well constructed (2) has minimal LOGOS/branding on it (3) Is still fairly lightweight for carrying (4) has a wider opening than my current bag which was causing me club tangle and issues fitting my LAB DF 2.1 in it. I will put up a review of it when I get it and update it as I go along.

@sirchunksalot & @CFreddie, I know you guys went with the UL Pro stand bags during the Cobra challenge. Any feedback on those for @Hacker60521? I can say that I love my UL Pro cart bag, and with the stand version being on sale for $156.99, I think it would be a tough one to beat.
