Not the lightest stand bag

One of the best golf bags on the market and, perhaps, one of the most well-known, the Ping Hoofer continues to offer an incredible blend of performance for a wide array of golfers. In testing, it was obvious that comfort meets stability and style.

To begin with, it has had a slight redesign, which only heightens the bag's reputation further. We saw this in the fact that there are handy pockets inside pockets, a fantastic adjustable carry strap and a rain cover that is cleverly stored within the padding for your back. When picking up the bag, the comfort that is delivered by two well-cushioned straps and hip pad becomes apparent. Although it’s a little heavier than other bags, it provides a pleasurable walking experience from start to finish.

Some golfers may want more club dividers

The Hoofer bags have built a sterling reputation, with Ping currently producing six different variations, including this Hoofer Monsoon. This is the wet weather alternative to the standard Ping Hoofer stand bag or the Ping Hoofer Lite for golfers who play during the wetter months of the year.

On first inspection, we thought that the bag has a very sleek design, with its navy base color contrasting nicely with the red rubber over-molded zippers located around the bag. In total, there are six roomy pockets on the Hoofer Monsoon, four of which are seam-sealed and can be easily opened with minimal resistance.  Inside the waterproof pockets, you’ll find more than enough room for tees, golf balls, snacks and your waterproofs. Because of the space, it means you can organize your golf bag very easily.

Beverage pocket is on the small side

As soon as we got our hands on the Hoofer Lite bag, it became apparent just how lightweight it is. Even when filled with a full set of clubs and accessories, it was easy to manoeuvre around the course, with the Lite taking away the issue of having something heavy on your shoulders for hours at a time. From start to finish, carrying the Ping Hoofer Lite is a pleasant experience, made all the better by two comfortable and well-fitting straps. Despite having just four sections for clubs, there is ample space for them without any getting stuck going in or coming out.

We really liked the big pocket down the side, which easily fitted a full set of waterproofs with space to spare, but the beverage pocket and golf ball pocket were a little small. However, these are minor concessions in a bag designed to be lightweight and easy to use. Pop in as many golf clubs as are legally allowed and a few necessary accessories in this bag and it's an ideal, lightweight companion and one of the best lightweight golf bags on the market.

Lightness means it’s inevitably less robust than some stand bags

The Hoofer has become an iconic moniker within the stand bag market and this latest incarnation is Ping’s lightest Hoofer bag to date, weighing in at an incredible 1.4kg. Versatility is the key with this bag – If you want it to stay super light and go minimal with just your sticks and a few balls – it’s tough to beat. What's more, it features seven pockets so there’s plenty of space for equipment if you need to take more, or if the conditions are uncertain. 

There’s also a sizeable apparel pocket that, in testing, could easily fit full waterproofs in and, with a seam sealed valuables' pocket and water bottle pocket, most eventualities are covered. The Hoofer Craz-E Lite is certainly nice and compact. In fact, it’s an extremely sleek bag that you’ll find very easy to sling into the trunk of a car, a locker or a flight bag. Given its streamlined and unfussy styling, there’s little to fault in one of the best golf stand bags money can buy.
