The color options won't be for everyone

Perhaps one of the coolest, stylish and eye-catching bags currently on the market, the Ogio All Elements Hybrid Stand Bag combines exceptional looks with performance. Ogio have broken the mold in terms of their fresh and funky designs and we salute them for their innovative styles, which are perfect for any golfer looking to make a statement on the course. 

However, there's a lot more to this bag than the fancy patterns printed on its waterproof lining. To begin with it is fully waterproof, with its seam sealed zips keeping our belongings protected whilst they store nicely in the bag's nine roomy pockets. 

If you're the type of player who likes to have all your clubs neatly organised but doesn't want to carry around a tour bag, then the eight-way divider on the top of this bag, which features a separate section for four big clubs, is the perfect way to keep your sticks all organised and dent free. That, in turn, makes it very easy to pull out your next club without drawing with it, your five iron, pitching wedge, and 52º. One other cool thing about this bag is that it houses a ball silo on the back, which, while seeming slightly gimmicky, was so handy to house a full packet of the best premium golf balls

Not everyone will like the external ball storage compartment

Available in five eye-catching colorways, the first thing you will notice about this Fuse Stand Bag is how beautifully designed it is. We tested the 'Aloha Oe' model and, if that look isn't to your tastes, then OGIO have other models available, some equally as bright, and others a touch more subdued.

It's not just the look where this bag performs, as the overall construction of the bag feels really good throughout. There are multiple solid sections, such as the top rim, bottom of the bag and the stand, but there are also more delicate areas, such as the soft padded back rest or the soft inner lining of the valuables pocket.

Providing users with a four-way divider and six spacious pockets, we really enjoyed carrying this bag for multiple rounds on the course, as the ample storage, sturdy construction and a comfortable carry make this one of the best golf stand bags currently on the market.

The color options will divide opinion

The eight color options that are available will divide opinion, but we think they are very fresh and funky as Ogio look to provide something very different in the golf bag category.

Featuring 11 pockets, it has a huge amount of space, with two large side ones for your waterproofs and other larger items of clothing, then there’s options galore for your valuables, balls, umbrella and drinks (with an insulated cooler pocket). Along with pockets, there are 15 dividers, with each of them particularly roomy for each of your clubs, and there’s even room for an extra slot where any alignment sticks can go.

Although it is slightly more expensive than some of the best golf bags on the market, we believe that Ogio really have thrown everything at this bag and we can say with some confidence that this will last you forever. The detailing inside the pockets and the feel and ease of the zips are obvious signposts that this is a step up when it comes to functionality, durability and quality.

Ogio All Elements Silencer Cart Bag

Ogio All Elements Silencer Cart Bag review

Specifications

Weight: 2.7kg/5.7lbs
Pockets: 7
Waterproof: Yes
Colors:

Reasons to buy

+
Excellent amount of storage
+
A unique divider system prevents club noise
+
Fully waterproof materials and zips

Reasons to avoid

-
Divider can knock out club grip sensors

This bag features Ogio's unique, patented WOODE Silencer technology that locks each club in place to stop club noise as the bag moves along. It's a popular new trend in cart bags and this system differs from others too - the system locks the butt end of each in place at the bottom of the bag while using a soft plastic material on the top to secure the shaft in place. We were worried this would leave marks on our clubs but it didn't, however the system does mean club sensors can get knocked off. 

As the name All Elements suggests, this bag is fully waterproof and features seam-sealed zips that keep everything in the bag bone dry. The amount of storage on offer can't be faulted either. Two large side pockets - one of which houses the rain cover - offer plenty of room to store apparel while the valuables pocket is fleece lined to stop your phone screen from getting scratched. There's also a cooler pocket and two external pockets to hold drinks bottles. 

We warmed to the Woodblock colorway we tested this bag in - it certainly stands out from the crowd! There are some more subtle or even louder options depending on your taste though so don't worry if the loud design isn't for you!

Travel bags

Ogio Rig 9800 Travel Bag Review

(Image credit: Future)

Specifications

Weight: 6.4kg/14lbs
Pockets: N/A
Waterproof: N/A
Colors: 11

Reasons to buy

+
Enough space to store everything you’ll need
+
Eye-catching styling
+
Easy to maneuver

Reasons to avoid

-
Will be too bulky for those who want to travel light

First and foremost, Ogio’s Rig 9800 travel bag is big enough to hold everything you’ll need for an extended period of travel. In cubic inches this comes in at 7500. What this means in real life is enough storage for more than one pair of shoes and a mix of different outfits.

Despite its size, it is very easy to maneuver. In testing, the large, heady duty wheels and telescoping pull handle both work well to ensure you can navigate through the airport without hassle, with the Rig 9800 very cleverly laid out. The main compartment is huge but there’s also an adjustable divider and a padded helmet compartment. 

Lastly, it will stand out when on the luggage carousel if you choose ‘sugar skulls’ color option. However, if it isn't your thing then there are a range of characterful alternatives as well as some more muted options. 

Ogio Alpha Travel Cover Mid

Specifications

Weight: 4.2kg/9.3lbs
Pockets: 2
Waterproof: N/A
Colors: 5

Reasons to buy

+
Easy to maneuver
+
Plenty of storage
+
Cover looks great and easy to spot in the airport/baggage claim

Reasons to avoid

-
Perhaps could do with thicker padding at the top end
-
Larger tour bags may struggle to fit

The Ogio Alpha travel bag is a very roomy option that can store shoes, clothes, balls and still have space left over for a souvenir or two. With all of this equipment in it, the bag does not feel overly cumbersome or heavy, which makes it a fantastic lightweight option when lifting it into cars, or from an airport carousel. 

That makes it a great cover for golfers looking to put as little strain on their backs as possible and it features two strong wheels that make this bag very easy to maneuver and pull behind you while you're out walking. It features a skid plate on the bottom which protects the bag from any abrasions, but it is also made of a durable material that is well padded around your club heads for additional protection and structure. 

The D-shaped opening makes it easy to gain access to your clubs and the bag also features some handy compression straps which keep your clubs well secured inside the cover. The last thing to note is the eye-catching colors that the Ogio Alpha comes in. We tested out the Cover's 'Warp Speed' colorway and it was very easy to spot in the airport. But you can also get it in other designs like donuts, navy flower party or simply black.

How we test

When it comes to product testing, our reviews and buyers' guides are built upon a rigorous testing procedure as well as the knowledge and experience of the test team. Product reviews on golf bags are headed up by Golf Monthly writer Andrew Wright. Other members of the Golf Monthly team contribute to golf bag testing too and all of our writers are able to efficiently test the vast majority of the biggest product releases while conveying the pros and cons of each item eloquently. Getting into specifics, we test golf bags outdoors on premium golf courses to get a thorough understanding on what design features each bag offers. 

Ultimately, we aim to be as insightful and honest as possible in our reviews, so it is important to acknowledge that no manufacturer can buy a good review. This is because our team tells it how it is. To learn more about our methodology, see how Golf Monthly tests products in our guide. 

How to choose a golf bag

There are several things you should think about before buying a golf bag and we have laid out the most important below...

Bag type

Put simply, what kind of bag do you want? And it normally boils down to two options: stand bag or cart bag? Both have their positives and negatives, so you should think about what is most important to you. Stand bags are built for those who want to carry their clubs, so factors like comfort and weight are very important. Added features like waterproofing, as well as the strength and robustness on offer might also be a consideration many have. 

The two negatives most associated with stand bags are they require more effort to use, and they usually don't offer as much storage as cart bags. However, that being said, there are several options above that can also be used on golf carts, so maybe that is a way of killing two birds with one stone.

Cart bags are for those who want to use golf carts on the golf course. If this is you, then you'll likely want a stable model that is not only easy to lift and move around, but also one that sits firmly on your cart. One big advantage we have found is that cart bags also tend to offer ample storage for accessories, apparel, valuables and all the other golf paraphernalia you might need during the round. The main negative is they are just bulkier and have to be taken off the cart before and after the round, whereas stand bags offer a bit more freedom.

Storage

These days a good golf bag has to have pockets for the many different reasons mentioned above. Cart bags tend to have larger pockets because they are just that, larger. They also require less effort to use, which means players are able to carry more stuff with them if needed.

Stand bags on the other hand usually have enough to house just the essentials. But this might be all that's required depending on your round-to-round requirements. So, have a think about how much gear you want to take onto the golf course, and pick a bag accordingly.

Waterproofing

If you live or golf somewhere that gets a lot of rain, then getting a waterproof bag is a no-brainer. If you don't, however, this factor won't be as important. We should acknowledge that some models above are better than others in this regard because they have been designed as such.

Weight

Across all types of bag, weight is important. Stand bags obviously have to be lightweight because players will be carrying them on their backs and shoulders all day, while cart bags should also have a degree of lightness so they are easy to maneuver on the golf course, and from the car to the cart itself. Thankfully most brands these days make lightweight models across their ranges because not many players want to use a heavy bag.

Looks

How do you want your golf bag to look? Whatever the model, brands try their best to create design aesthetics that stand out, or blend in on the golf course. Therefore have a think about which models you like the look of, or if some bags have different color schemes.

Budget

Our final factor to consider is of course price. There are golf bags at every single price point, so if you want to go for a premium model you can, or if you want a cheap stand bag you can also do that too.

FAQs

Is it important to get a golf bag with a good strap?

Yes, particularly if you suffer from back pain. Golfers should always look to take care of their posture by buying a golf bag that disperses the weight of their clubs out over their shoulders. A golf bag with a full set of clubs inside of it can be very heavy to carry over 18 holes. So it is important to remember to buy one that is comfortable and supportive on your back. 

Should I buy a stand bag or a pencil bag?

A stand bag typically is a bit heavier than a pencil bag, but allows you to carry more clubs and equipment. A pencil bag is better for players who carry fewer clubs or dont want to be burdened by carrying a large weight on their back. That's why they're often called Sunday bags as they can be great to load a few clubs in for a quick round on a Sunday. Depending on what type of golf you want to play, either can be great options for amateur golfers. 

What bags do most golfers use?

The majority of amateur golfers use golf stand bags. They are lightweight, generally easy to carry and you can stand them up pretty much everywhere on the course. The majority of professionals use tour bags as they are larger, can fit more equipment and are typically carried by caddies.
