    Two large evenly sized side pockets offered great storage space for all our clothing, while practical golf touches like the scorecard sleeve and Easilock base really did improve our user experience

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    The velour-lined valuables pocket could be a bit larger to hold bigger phones and wallets, while the styling could be considered a little too safe by any golfers after more standout looks

Key Technology

This 2017 Dry-Series model is super-lightweight at just 2.4kg and is 100 per cent waterproof. It is also manufactured from a durable Rip-Stop 420D Nylon fabric together with heat-welded seams and thermo-sealed zips that have been put through rigorous testing to ensure that the contents of your bag remain dry.

Along with brand new styling and colourways, the 2017 version incorporates seven spacious pockets that provide quick access to your gear, plus a practical scorecard sleeve to protect it against inclement weather.

You'l also find a 14-way top and full-length dividers to help organise your clubs, upper and lower grab handles for easier lifting and Motocaddy’s innovative Easilock pin and hole connection system that stops your bag twisting or falling off as you play.

Motocaddy 2017 Dry-Series Cart Bag Review

Having used the Motocaddy 2017 Dry-Series cart bag for a number of months, it's clear to see that it deserves its place in our Best Golf Trolley Bags 2017 guide. Better still, when you compare it to some of the other waterproof trolley bags from the likes of PowaKaddy and Titleist, it also offers good value for money at £199.99

During our testing we enjoyed the positioning and space of the seven pockets on the whole. The two large side pockets offered great storage room for all our spare clothing, while the insulated pocket was large enough to house multiple drinks. The new scorecard sleeve is a great touch too, but we wouldn't have minded a little bit more space for the one velour-lined valuables pocket, which was a tad tight once loaded with a phone and wallet.

The styling of this bag errs on the conservative side and while that gives it a broad appeal and will suit a greater range of trolley frame designs, those golfers after more of a statement bag might be not be too inspired. That said, it is 100 per cent waterproof and its material and zips certainly passed the test on the rainy days we played in. It's also worth mentioning that the seam-sealed zips are big enough to get large hands into, which is something that isn't always the case.

Finally, as with Motocaddy bags of the past, the generous lift handles and Easilock base really do help to improve your overall user experience.
