Sun Mountain has optimized the level of features and technology that they can offer at a given weight. Now, when buying a bag, a golfer knows the weight of the bag by its name. And, they know that as they look at the 2.5 vs 3.5 vs 4.5 vs 5.5 the extent of features increases as the numbers go up. Congrats to Sun Mountain for clarifying their product line.
While we prefer the 4.5 LS (reviewed here) the Sun Mountain 3.5 LS has a ton of features at its weight.
The weight of the Sun Mountain 3.5 LS Stand Bag is 3.5 pounds including straps.

When we recently attended the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, we asked a few of the leading vendors of women’s golf bags to explain what differentiates a women’s golf carry bag from a men’s bag. We received our best answer from Emily the designer and creator of Sassy Caddy.

The bags are more stylish and have greater personality
The pockets of the bags are tailored to more specialized uses
The Sassy Caddy bags are two inches shorter then men’s golf carry bags to provide a better fit for the shorter length of women’s clubs

In Part 1of this blog we made the claim that high-quality, single strap golf stand bags were as rare as a blue unicorn. We searched extensively throughout the electronic golf marketplace and discovered that although not quite as rare as the mythical beast, there truly were not many options. It appears that many manufacturers have moved away from single strap models or only offer the option in full-featured caddie and/or staff bags. After looking at about a dozen bags, we found one option that stood out. Continue reading Single Strap Golf Stand Bag — Searching for a Blue Unicorn (Part 2)→

The weight of the OGIO Cirrus Stand Bag is 5 pounds including the strap system.
Ping has earned itself an army of followers that is vocal, loyal and large. If you spend any time reading reviews in the golf forums or listening to customers, it is easy to find stories of “serial” Ping owners and individuals who have owned their Ping carry bags for 8 – 10 years. Given this following of Ping admirers we thought it would be useful to provide a side by side comparison of Ping’s three full featured stand bags to give newbies and veterans alike a clear picture of their similarities and differences.

I was able to catch up with Dan Langer, the owner of JCR Inc at this year’s 2018 PGA Merchandise Show.

We love walking the course carrying our clubs because of the freedom of being able to pick up and go. But some aspects of carrying can sometimes be a hassle. For instance, there is nothing more annoying than when your clubs get disorganized or completely tangled within the bag. When the grips are intertwined, you can’t easily get the clubs in or out. Not fun! 14-way golf carry bags are an answer to stop the tangled mess.
