New Product News: Rain, Rain – You Don’t Bother Me Anymore!


For more than twenty years Sun Mountain Golf has been an innovative in product design. They popularized the stand golf bag with their “Grasshopper” design more than a decade ago; being the first to integrate legs into stand bags. Their pattern of creative development has continued over the last few years with products ranging from the Speed Cart push cart to Rainflex outerwear.

They clearly take the time to understand devoted golfers and their needs.

Even further illustration of this can be with the arrival of the H20 Tech bag, what they claim is the first waterproof golf bag.

Just think, not more ruined cigars, cell phones, and rules books. Rain or otherwise, you know your equipment will keep dry.

To create this 2007 introduction the company utilized the frame of their popular 3.5 Superlight Bag. It is a wise choice as that bag was a big seller for the company. “Superlight 3.5 was designed on the premise of ‘sacrifice nothing but weight’,” explained Sun Mountain founder Rick Reimers. “We accomplished it! And now with H2O Tech we have further perfected it.”

The waterproof pockets and rainhood on the H2O Tech use the same waterproof construction as Sun Mountain’s line of rainwear including waterproof fabric, taped seams, and YKK(r) waterproof zippers.

H2O Tech features all of the innovations that made the Superlight 3.5 so popular including a top collar handle that provides a convenient spot to grab when removing the bag from the shoulder, top-moulded stand attachment for stability, patented Roller-Bottom stand mechanism with recessed Y-Spring, improved X-Strap(r) Dual Strap for added comfort, and five pockets, including a full length clothing pocket.

The new built-in top collar handle is part of H2O Tech’s integrated one-piece top that combines the top cuff, the built-in collar handle, and the upper stand bracket. This six-way top with full-length dividers also offers a higher strap attachment point that effectively moves the centre of gravity of the bag resulting in a more balanced bag for easier carrying, according the company.

The H2O Tech will be available February 2007 in two colours, solid black and solid goldenrod (pictured), with a full-suggested retail price of (US) $229.99.
