Sun Mountain, market leader in premium golf bags, is introducing the lightest fully-featured golf bag on the market in its range for 2016.
The No.1 premium golf bag brand – the first to introduce waterproof bags for all-weather golfers seven years ago – is adding the new Two Five carry bag weighing just over 1kg (or 2.5 lbs).
Constructed from ultra-lightweight 70 durable Denier Ripstop Nylon, similar to the material used in outdoor equipment applications such as mountaineering tents, the bag also features carbon-fibre legs instead of the normal aluminium legs. By adding a high strength-to-weight plastic top and bottom, Sun Mountain claims that the Two Five is now the lightest bag in its category.
The X-Strap Dual Strap System and lumbar hip pad with AirFlow System provides maximum comfort when carrying over 18 holes or more. The Two Five also comes with a 9” four-way top and flared opening for easy club removal, along with an integrated lift-assist handle, plus four full-length dividers. It’s available in six striking colour options, including Black/Envy and Orange/White.
“To carry such a lightweight bag is always going to be a real bonus for any serious golfer,” said chief designer at Sun Mountain Seth Enes. “But, although it’s extremely light, you don’t lose out on any features as the Two Five offers many of those traditionally found on other bags on the market,” he added.
Other features of Two Five include four accessory pockets with E-Z grip zip pulls; Pen, Towel & Umbrella holder; Leg lock system; Teflon-coated rain hood; and Lower pocket can be embroidered with club logo.
Hip belt optional
Other bags in the 2016 range offer the option of the Zero-G hip belt that can be brought as an accessory (£29.99). Designed to reduce the effort required to carry clubs around the course, the Zero-G’s unique hip belt transfers the majority of the bag’s weight from the shoulders to the hips – so providing better posture and overall comfort.
The Zero-G belt can be added to the Front 9 bag, along with the Three 5, Four5, H2NO Ultralite, H2NO Lite and the H2NO Lite 14 Way, all of which come in brand new colour options.
