One of the most popular golf bags on the market is getting an update.
The lightweight Sun Mountain 2.5 golf bag is all about features like carbon-fibre legs, high strength-to-weight plastics, and ultra-lightweight fabric.
For 2018, the company says the new 2.5+ will have increased durability, increased comfort, and more storage. These upgrades will still only add about 85 grams of weight to the overall package.
“We added the equivalent weight of two golf balls but raised durability, comfort and pocket space,” said Ed Kowachek, President of Sun Mountain Sports. “We’re satisfied with that trade-off and think golfers will be, too.”
Some details on the improvements are:
Added durability with a move from 70 denier to 100 denier fabric
Increased comfort with wider shoulder straps and better padding
Added storage with a new, zippered spine pocket and a dedicated beverage pouch
2.5+ is truly a full-size golf bag featuring a 9” top and four, full-length club dividers. 2.5+ doesn’t skimp on conveniences, either, offering five pockets including a full-length clothing pocket, velour-lined valuables pocket, two accessory pockets, and a beverage pouch.
2.5+ also includes details like: durable top with built-in handle, sturdy bottom with the patented Roller-Bottom leg mechanism for quick and strong leg action, Sun Mountain’s proprietary X-Strap® Dual Strap shoulder strap system, lumbar hip pad with AirFlow System, umbrella attachment, towel holder, top-mounted leg mechanism for added stability, pen holder, and a colour-coordinating rainhood.
It will be offered in eight different colour combinations.
