Ogio Mammoth golf travel bag with flexible yet rigid construction

Travel and convenience. Rarely do these two words come together, but rarely too does a luggage item completely transform an experience. The OGIO Mammoth is all about defying convention. This sturdy golf travel bag stands upright courtesy of its flexible yet rigid construction, and glides effortlessly in transit thanks to four sturdy, swiveling wheels.

At 50" tall, the OGIO Mammoth is a life-size caddy heartily welcoming golf gear through a wide mouth opening that unzips the full length of the bag. Once inserted, golf bags stay securely in place with the aid of internal compression straps, and another two straps around the bag's exterior. With the aid of its unique spinning wheels, the fully weighted Mammoth is designed to glide forward and back, left and right, responding instantly to its owners touch.

"Every golfer knows the pain of tipping a travel bag on two wheels and dragging it while also trying to balance gear, luggage, and a briefcase," says OGIO National Golf Sales Manager Tom Gocke. "The Mammoth is awesome in that it moves wherever you move and stays upright the whole time. It's a sweet experience - just push your bag the direction you want to go, and walk. It might be the easiest travel experience anyone has had in years."

The Mammoth also acts like a world-class caddy, planning ahead for every possible need. Favorite among many advance testers is the intelligently designed removable shoe pocket with carry handle. This top-mounted bag zips off with ease to allow the golf bag to go in one direction while shoes stay on hand (or on feet). The bag's construction maximizes every possible inch of storage, offering an additional built in shoe pocket; an oversized crush- resistant hat pocket; plus four exterior pockets to house rain gear or other last-second check-in items.

With its oversized, fully padded top compartment, valuable club heads are assured added protection regardless of the handling the bag endures when out of sight. And the SLED (Structural Load Equalizing Deck), located at the bag's base, provides added reinforcement for the bag's already durable structure.

The OGIO Mammoth (MSRP: $330.00) weighs 18 lbs. unloaded, and is constructed from durable dobby nylon and polyester. Like all OGIO travel gear, the Mammoth is also backed by the company's lifetime warranty. This season, this state-of- the-art travel golf bag is available in Fire and Petrol through major sporting goods and golf specialty retailers nationwide.
