Stand Bags

14 way divider won't be for everyone

Going a step further than the Eco-Lite, Sun Mountain have also introduced an EWP version of the bag. The difference between the two models is the EWP moniker in the product names. EWP stands for Enhanced Weather Protection and, as such, it is fully waterproof, making it a bag you can use all year round. 

The EWP design performed just as well as the regular model, with it being extremely comfortable, lightweight and convenient to use. Importantly, it provided ample storage, making this a top performer in the stand bag market. 

One final positive worth mentioning is that the bag is made from Repreve fabric, which is made using recycled plastic bottles. Approximately twenty-five 20-oz bottles go into the material, which is a design element worth applauding.

Some may feel there are cheaper viable alternatives

There’s no question the H2NO Lite is one of the best golf bags in the Sun Mountain range and indeed one of the best waterproof golf bags on the market. Testing the H2NO Lite over a series of rounds, in differing weather conditions, we found it to be a bag that’s difficult to fault.

Providing great looks, with the color being not too garish, it really is a unique aesthetic. The quality of construction was also immediately obvious, as it’s made from a TPU-coated waterproof fabric that ensures no rain penetrates the interior, which is a significant advantage wherever you are in the world. What’s more, all the seams are taped and sealed and the high-quality YKK waterproof zippers further bolster protection.

Once again, it has a lightweight feel and weighs in at just 2.3kg. Certainly it’s easy to carry, even when it’s packed to the rafters with your golf gear. There's also plenty of storage, as six pockets provide ample space for your belongings.

Two-way zip would be handy for the main golf ball pocket

Within the range, there are five colours to choose from, with this very striking electric blue and white option being the choice for our test. The first thing to appreciate though is quite how light this bag is. Weighing just 2kg, there are still bundles of space with a four-way top.

Using this bag, we were seriously impressed by the layout, with it seemingly designed by someone who plays golf. Everything was in the correct place and we were very pleased with the particularly sizeable ‘hydration pouch’, which has room for a large bottle of whatever takes your fancy.

To carry, it has an X-Strap fitted dual strap and there’s even a padded hip part so the clubs aren’t constantly clanking against your body. Other nice touches are a small hook to attach your club-cleaning brushes or your bag tags, and your umbrella can easily be hidden away.

Not fully waterproof

A brand synonymous with high-quality, Sun Mountain's Two5 Plus bag is a model that certainly lives up to the premium, performing name. In testing, the first thing we noticed was the styling, which is modern and looks great. As you can see, the model we tested was finished in white, black and red, a more muted design, but there are several other funky finishes too.

There is a lot to like about this bag, with one of those things being how lightweight it is. Despite being equipped with a full set of golf clubs, golf balls and the pockets bursting with other pieces of golf gear, it was incredibly easy to carry and is easily one of the best lightweight golf bags around. Speaking of carrying, the X-Strap system was another excellent feature.

Equipped with five pockets, it has a 4-way divider and a very reliable stand that won't cause any issues out on the golf course. Too often, we have tested bags that have stands which do not protrude out far enough. This means, in windy conditions or uneven lies, they lose balance and fall over easily. We had no such issues here.

14-way divider will split opinion

For golfers who like to carry their clubs, having a bag that is lightweight is vitally important, and the Eco-Lite from Sun Mountain is one of the best for this. It weighs just 4lbs and provides superb comfort whilst carrying.  This is thanks to the padded straps, which can be adjusted easily.

In weight, it’s akin to a Sunday or pencil bag but, in storage, it does compromise a touch when compared to other stand bags. The bag has four pockets, including a valuables pocket and larger pocket on the outer side. The pockets aren't particularly large, so for golfers who like to carry lots of extra layers or drinks, the pocket space fills up very quickly.

Although it isn’t fully waterproof, it is made using water-resistant fabric, which we found offered reasonably extensive protection. It wasn’t until the heavens really opened that some water began to penetrate the fabric, and even then it was minimal.

Cart Bags

Sun Mountain C-130 Cart Bag review

Reasons to buy

+
Impressive storage that’s easily accessible
+
Sleek, eye-catching aesthetics
+
Incredibly quiet and stable on a cart
+
Superb craftsmanship from top to bottom

Reasons to avoid

-
Optimal for riding carts as opposed to push carts

It’s not surprising that the C130 is Sun Mountain’s best-selling cart bag as it delivers all the features you would expect from a high-performance product, with the bag designed exclusively for cart use.

We found that the storage is extensive, as 13 well-placed and ample sized pockets mean you could even pack to go for a two-week vacation using the storage space in this bag. All the pockets are front-facing, meaning they’re easily accessible, with that accessibility guaranteed by the cart strap pass-through system. 

In addition, a smart strap system attaches the bag more firmly to a cart with two Velcro straps to prevent twisting and movement.  The 14-way top, which also has an oversized putter well, means that clubs will be fully separated and so prevent shafts from clashing.

Only really works on a trolley

There’s an awful lot to love about the Sun Mountain H2NO Lite cart bag, especially if you're looking for a lightweight but spacious option to fit on your trolley. For starters, there’s the fact that this bag is completely waterproof, with the thick nylon fabric making the rain run off the surface. 

The zips and seams are also cleverly taped to ensure that all your belongings remain dry, even in the harshest of weather conditions, making it one of the best waterproof golf bags we've tested in recent times.

At just 2.6kg, when empty, it’s only a little heavier than lifting two bags of sugar and, even after you add your clubs, golf balls, waterproofs, drink and accessories, it’s more than light enough.
