PowaKaddy 2022 Dri Tech Cart Bag Review

If you’re a golfer who likes to use an electric trolley or one of the best golf push carts, it’s vital to have a good cart bag to match. And they don’t come much better than the PowaKaddy Dri Tech, which is loaded with features that enhance the playing experience for golfers of all levels.

PowaKaddy’s versatile range of bags is one of the best in the business, and within that range, the Dri Tech sits right at the top. As you would expect, it’s fully waterproof, even down to the seams and zips, which have been heat welded and feature a special coating.

For those more acclimated to the elements, you can have no doubts that your gear and clubs will remain dry from start to finish. In addition, PowaKaddy’s Key-Lock anti-twist system works to ensure your bag stays firmly on your trolley, no matter the terrain.

Not only does this bag perform, but it also looks the part. It’s available in five colors meaning there are plenty of options to choose from. None are too flashy, but feature nice detailing on the zips and main body so you can stride the fairways in style. The performance of this bag helps it earn a spot in our 2023 Editor's Choice.

Another performance aspect we were very impressed with was just how lightweight the PowaKaddy Dri Tech Cart Bag is. It might not look like it, but it weighs in at just 2.3kg, which is lighter than some stand bags. Even with clubs, additional layers, balls, and any other accessories, this makes it easier than most cart bags to take to and from the course, as well as get on and off a trolley or push cart.

Fourteen individual dividers are brilliant for ensuring all clubs are safely secured and won’t jam going in and coming out when required. And with the growing popularity of oversize putter grips, PowaKaddy has also included a specific putter divider to accommodate this, which is a nice touch. 

Beyond the clubs, there are seven pockets, including two full-length apparel pockets, which we found offered more than enough space for everything we needed. There’s also a velour-lined pouch to keep valuables safe and negate the risk of damage, while there’s a scorecard holder as well. It’s got it all.

A lifelong golf fan, Andy graduated in 2019 with a degree in Sports Journalism and got his first role in the industry as the Instruction Editor for National Club Golfer. From there, he went on to enjoy a spell freelancing for Stats Perform producing football reports, and then for RacingNews365 covering Formula 1. However, he couldn't turn down the opportunity to get back into the sport he grew up watching and playing and now covers a mixture of equipment, instruction and news for Golf Monthly's website and print title.

Andy took up the game at the age of seven and even harboured ambitions of a career in the professional ranks for a spell. That didn’t pan out, but he still enjoys his weekend golf at Royal Troon and holds a scratch handicap. As a side note, he's made five holes-in-one and could quite possibly be Retief Goosen’s biggest fan.

As well as the above, some of Andy's work has featured on websites such as goal.com, dailyrecord.co.uk, and theopen.com.
