TaylorMade PureLite Stand Bag: Original December 2015 Review
The 2016 TaylorMade PureLite Specs:
The weight of the TaylorMade PureLite Stand Bag is 4.8 pounds including the shoulder straps and rainhood.
Given the inclusion of the straps and rainhood this weight is one of the lightest of our recommended bags.
Getting Clubs In and Out of the Bag
The TaylorMade PureLite Stand Bag has a rectangular five-way opening with two full-length dividers and diameters of 9.75” x 8.5”.
The opening of the bag is within our preferred size range. Ideally, there would be one more full-length divider. The top design easily accommodates putters with over-sized grips.
Ease of Carrying the Bag
The bag has a redesigned shoulder strap system with contoured ergonomic shoulder straps with air mesh. The bag has a cushioned hip pad. The bag has top rim, spine, and bottom handles for easy lifting options.
The shoulder strap system meets our expectations in terms of comfort and ease of use. Significant consumer reviews applauding the overall lightness and ease of carrying the bag.
The TaylorMade PureLite Stand Bag has 10 pockets, including:
- Full-length apparel pocket
- Padded velour-lined valuables pocket
- Rangefinder pocket
- Insulated beverage pocket
- Mesh utility pocket
- 2 Accessory pockets
- Ball pocket
- Tee pocket
- Scorecard & pen sleeve
In terms of other attachment points, the bag has an umbrella sleeve, Velcro glove patch, and towel loop.
At ten pockets, the bag is slightly above the high end of our preferred number and specialization of pockets.
Stability of the Bag
The TaylorMade PureLite Stand Bag has an anti-split stand system and slightly enlarged feet to reduce sinking and slippage.
The stability features of the bag meet our expectations.
The TaylorMade PureLite Stand Bag has:
- A rainhood
- Crush resistant construction with side supports to protect clubs
- A cart compatible base
- Seven color combinations, including camouflage
TaylorMade’s suggested retail price is $189.99.
The $189.99 MSRP is in the middle range of our recommended full feature carry bags. It is a solidly constructed bag with plenty of features and good color options.
As mentioned at the beginning of this post, TaylorMade discontinued the PureLite in 2017 replacing it with the FlexTech line.
