Golf bag brand Sun Mountain has unveiled a range of golf bags made from recycled plastic bottles.
The brand that first introduced waterproof golf bags, Sun Mountain has developed the water-resistant ECO-LITE bags in a bid to reduce harmful waste and offer golfers peace of mind, knowing that the fabric used in the design is made from recycled materials.
“We’re thrilled to bring the first bag of its kind to the market that incorporates material made from recycled plastic bottles, while ensuring golfers can benefit from the premium features associated with top-selling Sun Mountain stand bags,” said Tony Fletcher, Sales Manager of Brand Fusion International, which distributes the Sun Mountain products across Europe. “Innovation is at the core of the brand and we believe these pioneering ECO-LITE bags will prove popular with golfers looking for eco-friendly options.”
Around 25 plastic bottles (20oz sized) are recycled into highly durable fine threads to form the durable fabric of each ECO-LITE stand bag. Weighing less than 2kg, the bag features a contoured E-Z Lite Dual Strap System to guarantee comfort and ease of use, plus a four-way top provides plenty of club space.
The lightweight bag incorporates six pockets, including a large apparel pocket, a velour-lined valuables pocket and a hydration sleeve. A separate rain-hood is included.
Using 30 recycled plastic bottles (20oz) to construct the water-resistant fabric, the ECO-LITE cart bag incorporates a 14-way divider and separate putter well, plus two utility handles to assist in moving the back on and off a cart. Among eight forward facing pockets, include a velour-lined valuables pocket and an insulated cooler pocket, while a pass-through strap system ensures a secure fit.
The ECO-LITE stand (RRP £199) and cart bags (RRP £219) are available from July in five colour combinations: Rush Green/Green, Navy/Red/Cobalt, Cadet/Inferno/Gunmetal, Black/White/Gunmetal/Red and Black.
