Have you ever stood watching the oversize baggage carousel lumber by? Does it seem like every golf travel bag is black? Can't find yours?

That's one reason I wanted a different color in my Sun Mountain Cocoon. Mine's khaki colored with black accents, but you can select navy, goldenrod and solid black.

The Sun Mountain Cocoon retails for $150 and is durable -- consisting of denier nylon ballistic and denier polyester fabrics combined with a heavy duty vinyl. It includes in-line skate wheels, a shoe pouch and two internal zippered pockets.

It's so roomy inside that's where I usually pack away the stuff I acquired on a trip, since my suitcase is full to the brim.

Other features include:

Internal bag strap-down system to keep clubs and bags in place.

Thick foam padding for additional club protection.

The Cocoon is very easy to pack since it has lots of room -- you won't be trying to stuff a golf bag into a space that just isn't big enough.

Sun Mountain's Pulse Point

The new Pulse Point by Sun Mountain Performance Outerwear was inspired by U.S. Armed Forces research proving that sharpshooters perform better when their pulse points maintain a comfortable temperature. Drawing a correlation to golf, especially the short game on and around the green, Sun Mountain has developed a jacket designed specifically to keep a golfers pulse points warm in foul weather.

The Pulse Point is available now in better golf shops in four colors (navy, moss, storm gray and black) with a suggested retail price of $129. For the retailer nearest you call 800-227-9226 or visit www.sunmountain.com.

The body's pulse points include the wrists, neck and the areas of the torso that protect internal organs such as the kidneys. The Pulse Point jacket incorporates insulation strategically placed only where needed to keep torso pulse points warm, allowing freer movement of the arms for an unencumbered golf swing. Sun Mountain Pulse Point is a pullover jacket with a half zip.

The quilted exterior shell is treated with 80/20 spray-rated DuPont Teflon for light rain protection.

Pulse Point also includes insulated zip pockets and a side-seam zipper for easy on and off. In addition to performance outerwear, Sun Mountain designs and manufactures functional, high quality, lightweight golf bags for the serious golfer. Sun Mountain is responsible for many industry firsts, including being the first to use backpacking technology to produce a lightweight nylon golf bag, and being the first to develop a stand bag with integral legs.

As the exclusive, officially licensed supplier of performance outerwear to the PGA Tour, Senior PGA Tour, and Buy.com Tour, and the official outerwear of both the American and International President's Cup teams, Sun Mountain Performance Outerwear is golf gear engineered to endure any weather condition, on any golf course, anywhere.
