Cobra Ultralight Trolley Bag Review
In this review, we put the Cobra Ultralight Trolley Bag through its paces
A trolley bag that does everything required, and more. If you're after a reasonably lightweight bag with plenty of storage space it's hard to look past. Our only concern was the quality of materials, but this is easily overlooked thanks to its overall practicality.

Cobra Ultralight Trolley Bag Review
A good trolley bag needs to have plenty of storage, excellent club organisation and be reasonably easy to transport. For those in the market for a trolley bag that does all of this - and a bit more - the Cobra Ultralight trolley bag stands out.
Firstly, the whopping 13 pockets means you can take everything, and probably more, than you need out on course with you. We've actually nicknamed the Cobra Ultralight the Noah's Ark of trolley bags because, from a storage perspective, everything comes in twos.
To start, it features two large side pockets for apparel, two waterproof fleece-lined valuables pockets, two exterior water bottle holders, as well as a detachable ball pocket at the front, this allows you to carry everything you need, doubled.
All of these pockets are well thought out and placed in the areas you'd expect them to be. What's more, there is plenty of depth to allow you to carry as much, or as little, as you need. The highlight of all the 13 pockets is the cooler pocket, which is situated low and at the front of the bag. It's a vast pocket and Cobra have given plenty of space in the bag for some of the most important things you'll carry on the course: food and drink.
According to Cobra, the cooler pocket can hold twelve 12oz cans and - although we didn't try this out ourselves - we trust the cooler pocket really is that large.
Away from the pockets, you get a 14-way divider - the industry standard for a modern trolley bag - as well as a dedicated putter well at the top of the bag, which is large enough to fit a putter with a larger grip on too.
The bag also features a cart strap 'pass through', which allows the securing trolley strap to pass through the bag instead of over it. This means you have easy access to all pockets while nothing in the bag gets squashed.
Our one concern with the bag is quality of the materials. At this price, you could certainly argue some higher quality fabrics could've been used on the outside of the bag.
Further to this point, the red, white and black bag we tested quickly became stained and was hard to clean out - something to bare in mind if you want to use this bag in the winter months.
There are six colours to choose from though, and we'd recommend sticking to darker colours if you're planning to use this trolley bag throughout the year and not just in the summer.
Despite the fact we've spoken about the size and massive amounts of storage this bag provides, it still lives up to the Ultralight name.
Weighing just under 2.5kg (5.3lbs), this bag is genuinely easy to transport even when full of clubs and other accessories, making it a great option for those who don't want to lug a heavy trolley bag around every time they play.
