The weight of the OGIO Fuse 4 Stand Bag is 4.4 pounds, including the strap system.
This weight places the Fuse Bag in the lighter end of our preferred range and is one of the most lightweight bags OGIO has produced.
In setting our weight range, we consider both the pure weight of the bag as well as the tradeoff of weight versus features. Typically, the lighter the bag, the fewer the features and the lesser the quality of the materials. So, finding the absolute lowest weight bag is not always the best path for selecting a bag.
Getting Clubs In and Out of the Bag
The OGIO Fuse 4 Stand Bag has a roundish 9″, four-way opening with full-length dividers.
Some found that the opening for this bag is on the small size, especially the areas for putter/wedges and drivers/woods/hybrids.
In terms of “crowding,” the advantage of a four opening top is that less of the top is devoted to the padded dividers, which can take up a significant amount of effective space. Also, the fewer the number of dividers, the easier it is for a golfer to slide clubs into the bag.
Ease of Carrying the Bag
The OGIO Fuse 4 Stand Bag has the Fit Disc Four Point Strap System, which joins the two, wide and dense, ergonomic, shoulder straps in a manner that allows each to move independently. The connecting disc allows each strap to automatically adjust to better distribute the weight of the bag.
For greater ease of carrying the bag, the Fuse has a padded hip panel to fit a golfer’s body more comfortably.
OGIO claims that the Fuse 4 is the “…most comfortable bag we have ever made”.
The bag has top rim, padded spine, and bottom handles for easy lifting options.
OGIO continues to innovate on its strap carry systems. The Fit Disc Four Point Strap System is a very comfortable carry.
The OGIO Fuse 4 Stand Bag has eight pockets (7 zippered) including:
- Large apparel pocket
- Weather-resistant soft-lined valuables pocket
- Walking accessible open insulated water bottle holster
In terms of other attachment points, the bag has:
- An umbrella holder
- Towel loop
- Velcro glove patch
- Marker holder
- Webbing tee holder
The bag has our preferred number of pockets with ample storage and specialization.
Stability of the Bag
OGIO Stand Bags have historically received consistently positive reviews for their sturdiness and stability. The Fuse 4 is no exception. While having a slightly more vertical posture than some stand bags, the Fuse 4 has a well-constructed leg extension system that is partially internal to the bag. Also, the feet of the legs are substantial and resist sinking into the ground.
The stability features and performance of the bag are in line with our expectations for an OGIO bag.
The OGIO Fuse 4 Stand Bag has:
- OGIO’s long history of making high-quality golf bags
- Includes rain hood
- Cart strap pass-through
- Water-resistant ripstop fabric
- Ability to easily convert from double strap to single strap format
- Seven color combinations which are brighter and more modern than past OGIO bags
The suggested retail price for the OGIO Fuse 4 Stand Bag is $199.99.
The $199.99 is a very fair MSRP price for a bag with the quality standards of OGIO.
