Golf bags go light
Here's what some of the golf-bag manufacturers have to say about their stand/carry bags:
Some people have had porterhouse steaks in one sitting that weighed more than this bag. It's extremely functional, too, starting with pockets aplenty: a large, zippered apparel pocket; hidden sunglasses/valuables pocket; double zippered bottom ball pocket; two zippered side pockets for accessories. A hip pad increases carry comfort. There's an umbrella holder, accessory ring. A rain hood is included. The bag stand: top-mount legs won't kick out during loading and unloading.
Extremely lightweight yet notably sturdy and durable despite its size. The 400 denier nailhead material provides protection from wear, tear and the elements. The enhanced, cart-compatible stand system is designed for optimum stability. The carry system incorporates NIKE AIR technology that disperses weight over a wider area for enhanced cushioning and comfort. The top/dividers are six inches round with a two-way top opening, thus providing ample room for numerous clubs.
Hassle-free for the serious walker, it weighs only 3.9 lbs. A four-point adjustable back-pack strap with foam-padded contoured slings promotes comfort while the lower assist handle helps in lifting the bag in and out of car trunk. For versatile storage: a full side-saddle apparel pocket; three-zipper accessory pockets, one being velour lined; side saddle ball pocket with zippered accessory pocket; pen pocket; and a full-size ball pocket. Additional features: foam-padded "comfort mesh" covered hip pad; towel loop strap; umbrella loop strap; and matching zippered rainhood.
As we get into the core golf season, I'll feature several golf bags for golf carts that'll please non-walkers.
